Fall Fashion Splurge v. Steal {Designer Look-a-likes at Great Prices}

I feel like fall fashion puts us all in a frenzy (just me? oops). I can't get enough of the textures, hues, and coziness many of my fall fashion favorites provide but with some of those pieces comes a hefty price tag. I have a closet full of fabulous sweaters, vests, jackets, and scarfs with no need of necessarily buying one and the thought of it in my closet is usually swept away with the numerous numbers on the tags.

Fortunately for all of you ladies on a budget or college girls like myself I have found lots of pieces similar to those offered by designers at a fraction of the cost! While they aren't exact, most of the pieces provide the same style we are attempting to replicate!

(splurges on the left and steals on the right)

olive jacket: splurge | steal

tan vest: splurge | steal

blanket scarf: splurge | steal

navy anorak: splurge | steal

quilted jacket: splurge  | steal (another great splurge option)

Which are your favorites from this list?


  1. I've said it before, and I'll say it again, investing in my Barbour was the best choice I made. It is one of the most versatile jackets I own!

  2. I love your ideas for the steal, especially the scarf. I can see maybe investing in a jacket-but a scarf or vest aren't as big of an investment piece! Thanks for the ideas!

  3. I LOVE the LL Bean waxed cotton jacket, and I have to say that it's a lot better quality than the Barbour, too! They have a lifetime guarantee, so if ANYTHING happens to your jacket, they will replace it - for free! Can't beat great customer service paired with made-in-USA quality.

  4. These are great! I love the jackets!

  5. I absolutely love my Barbour - I've worn it to death! In fact, after nearly two years of practically constant use, I really need to re-wax mine!

  6. I have had my eye on that Tan Quilted Jacket for weeks now. I am certain that I'm going to give in eventually! I also have the Barbour jacket, but I want the quilted one for something slightly nicer looking.

  7. My blog post for today is pretty similar but I focused on vests, great minds think alike! I'm definitely thinking of getting the steal vest from Old Navy, who could resist that $20 price tag?

  9. If you still have no job and cannot be hired at least by the small company, that means that something is wrong with your resume. Just order it online from the professional writers and or look for the best 10 resume writing services reviews, it would be more useful and timesaving to check what peopel say about them.
