When I began the Want & Have Outfit post last fall, my goal was to share with you ideas that could welcomed and enjoyed in your own wardrobe. What I have discovered as more than 24 outfits were shared, is that while each outfit has been well received, often different price points would be a welcomed option.

So after listening to your comments and emails, the new weekly outfit post has become Splurge & Save. Each week I will share two similar outfits – one styled with top designer wares and the other with frugal finds. And the best part is you can mix and match as your budget and tastes allow and prefer.

I have always found mixing high and low items to be a smart route to choose not only when it comes to my bottom line, but also when creating a look that works well together. For example, costume jewelry is always a good option, and so long as you shoes look fabulous, your entire outfit will be elevated. The key is to purchase items that flatter your figure, skin tone and lifestyle. Happy shopping! I do hope you enjoy this new regular weekly series.

  1. For once in my life, the two items I was drawn to, actually weren’t the most expensive things on the page. Bravo!

    Great looks, on both fronts. I’m excited about this series.
