We want it all in our closets, especially those beauties with well know labels. But unfortunately – unless we are daughters of financial moguls – we can’t have everything! The common sense suggests to invest in one or two classics (remember how to invest in fashion?), and be more restrained when it comes to shopping for seasonal must-haves.
But there is a way to put our hand on the desired design without breaking the bank: we just have to open our eyes and look for affordable substitutes. Not counterfeit of course! Going for a fake goods is not an option, first of all because it’s illigal. Second – it proves bad taste. Period!
We figured out that every high-fashion piece have a twin option in low price, basically from the popular brand. So we did all that sniffing for you, and here are the results. Simple as that!

I kind of like fashion - meaning: I like to look good, but spending too much time shopping is something that makes me feel overwhelmed. Besides of that - I have a walk-in closet full of wonderful stuff that I use once in 1-2 years... I know, it's outreagous! So I decided to start the Instagram account and try to reuse pieces I own for a long time, without compromising on fashion and style. My new motto is to re-create and re-cycle, instead of buying new stuff over and over. Now I shop consciously - buying only the items that complement my other clothes.
