Here's another edition of Splurge or Save, I've been meaning to do more of these posts, they're some of my favorite to make! Anyway, here are some designer shoes and bags for spring and summer and their affordable look-a-likes. As I've said in past posts of this series, some of these items I would consider going with the splurge side; like the neutral gladiator sandals. But, some on the splurge side are versatile looking, but really could be worn or used very often; like Stuart Weitzman heeled sandals, or the Madewell bag. I don't know about you, but I could not justify spending $300+ on a large bag (even if it is high quality), but can probably only be really used for travel, or some very uncomfortable-looking (and barely have any material) sandals.
$300 Kate Spade Maise Bag vs. $28 Forever 21 Bag
Rebecca Minkoff Mini Suki Saddle Bag vs. $35 Old Navy Tassel Saddle Bag
$100 Sam Edelman Dawson Gladiator Sandals vs. $30 Sam & Libby for Target Arianna Gladiator Sandals
$300 Madewell Transport Tote vs. $85 Sole Society Lacie Tote
$400 Stuart Weitzman "Nudistsong" Heeled Sandals vs. $30 Mossimo for Target Pamela Heeled Sandals (I do have to say I tried these on recently and they are not comfortable, and I usually love wearing heels)
Thanks for reading!
