There are 3 trendy things that I have REALLY wanted to buy for fall. But in all 3 cases- perhaps because, as I mentioned like 10 words back, they are trendy- I couldn't pull the trigger on getting the expensive version.
So- I scoured the internet between the wee hours of 2-4am since that is just how I roll, and found amazing steal options that, thus far, have served me VERY well. So, wanted to share...you can click on any of the images below for more info on each item.
1- Fitted & Feminine Nordic Sweater: First spotted on Goop for $428 (and, sold out in pretty much every single size), this version is $120 and fits flawlessly. I plan on wearing it regularly with high waisted jeans and icy pink blush come winter.
2- White Bootie: At first, the shiny white shoe trend horrified me. Now, I am stalking down every influencer I follow on LikeToKnowIt (more on that later) to find out where they procured the pairs they seem to wear in every damn photo. The Manolo version just seemed silly to shell out almost $1k for- but the (cue the gasp) EXPRESS version (!!!)? Killer.
3- Velvet Pencil Skirt: Currently VERY into velvet (yeah, I know- who isn't?), and dreaming of styling a deep blue pencil skirt as pictured below with a white tee and ankle boots. This $885 skirt initially peaked my interest, but luckily, this one fits like a GLOVE and rings in at $140 (oh, and you can get 25% off with the code 7V2T at checkout- nice.)
