Times are hard for the average American these days. So finding the newest fashionable items can be a strain on your bank account. When it comes to the latest fashions I’ve always wondered this: Why buy a 300$ shirt from some top designer when you can find the same shirt from a lesser known brand for a reasonable price? If there’s one thing I’ve learned about commerce is that even if its from a designer label, you can ALWAYS find the same thing for a cheaper price. The other day I went on a bit of a fashion haul to show you what I mean. From cross leggings to spiked headbands, take a look at the items I bought and the comparisons I’ve used from some well known retailers.
Cross leggings: I got theses nifty things from a local store called TParty for 15.00$
Compare at: houseoffraser.co.uk at 23.40$ (was 39.00$) after the sale discount.
Skull Blouse: This is an item that was none of the ultimate steals. I bought this at Ross for 10$!
Compare at: Nastygal.com at 43$. Can you see the big picture?
Spiked headband: I have a strange obsession with spiked stuff. This headband I got at a store called Hottie is so me. Not only that it was only 7.99!
Compare at: Topshop’s blush spiked headband at 25$.
50’s Vintage Cat Eye Sunglasses: an excellent find for only 5.99$
Compare at: shoplesnouvelles.com’s Norma Kamali Square Cat Eye Sunglasses at 98.00$
You see. Bigger buy for your buck. I spent less than 50$ for items that would have cost hundreds somewhere else. Don’t let the recession get you down, there’s a new bargain hunter in town!
