I love a good steal, but sometimes I’ll pick something up just because it’s so affordable – whether it be an accessory or piece of clothing – and wind up disappointed with less-than-ok quality. Recently, however, I’ve come across really high-quality, staple items that don’t break the bank. In addition to being available for great prices, they all [well, all but the tee] resemble designer pieces that go for much, much more.
- Express Squared Cat Eye Sunglasses – these beauties look so much like the Prada Cat Eye sunnies, but for a fraction of the price at $29.99. I have been wearing them everyday since I got them, and I really love how they look on. The shape is really flattering, and for being on the larger side, they frame the face nicely without being overpowering.
- Dailylook Saddlebag – I had to make this purchase [some things are just necessary, right?] after I saw that it was on sale for $19.99. This handbag looks very much like a Chloe bag, and though it is faux leather, it both feels and looks very high quality. It has a few different compartments inside, and is just the right size to fit all of my daily essentials [including 5-7 lip products ;)].
- Mossimo Tee – When I go to Target, I always, always hit up the tee section. This one from Mossimo is super soft, and is a very flattering, longer length; it’s my go-to for wearing underneath cardigans and sweaters.
- Forever21 Detachable Crossbody Bag – this purse looks very much like the Celine three compartment bag, and it’s such a great deal for $22.90. I picked it up when I was home in NY as I needed a smaller bag to carry around the city on New Year’s Eve, and it has been my everyday bag ever since.
