Diaries of a Bargainista: Buy This Not That

I know all of us are constantly swooning over all the designer duds that float around here in blogland. I know I'm one of them! However, their price tags aren't always friendly on your wallet.  I've purchased several items this season that are inspired by designers, but don't break the bank.

In all honesty, even if I had $1,000 to spend on a pair of shoes I definitely wouldn't choose to spend it on a pair of cheetah loafers.  They're going to be in style for what, 1 season?

What designer inspired items have you purchased this season?


  1. Love this! I already own the loafers, and the sweater??? I need!


  2. I've been lusting after a polka dot sweater I'll have to check out that old navy one. I've seen in on a bunch of the fashion bloggers I follow and it looks so good.

  4. I really like those leopard shoes from Target and that sweater is cute. I love how its style with a button up underneath.

  5. So true!!! I saw those flats and thought they even looked better than the Tory Burch ones. Really, I would not spend a dime on them. yes, they look pretty but no one at some point will recognize the brand/designer and then it's just really one season you're wearing them. Maybe two or maybe more, but probably not. :(

    Great post!!!!

  6. Thanks for stopping by my page the other day! Great bargain steals! Yeah it's hard for me to spend 200+ dollars on a sweater when I know I can find something more than 80% cheaper. Have yourself a great weekend!

  8. Wow, such splurge and save matches you shared! I got myself a pair of leopard flats for $14 at Forever 21 last week. I was super excited about them!

  9. You know I love the saves!!! There are so many fab recreations of bigger ticket items...it's senseless not to save and go buy more!! ;) That's my motto! And I LOVE my polka dot sweater from ON!
