Splurge vs. Save

Hey lovelies, I haven't been posting about my shopping haul/inspirations lately and thought I'd do it now. I mean I haven't been buying much since summer started cause I can't be spending/splurging on summery items when I truly need winter clothes (though I dread winter wear I have to accept that British weather means sweater weather *sad face*).

But of course, that doesn't stop me from shopping really.. especially when an amazing deal strikes, it's hard to say no, no? Everyone loves a good buy!

As part of the Splurge vs. Save Campaign I'd like to show you guys a pricey inspiration that I would've splurge on versus an equally amazing, alternate find that we could all save on. Hope you lovelies find this useful! Yay to saving your pockets, right?

I'd typically Splurge on this..
Pictured above is sold by/taken from Zara (click here to be redirected).
Original price - US$49.90 / £25.99
With their current sale -  US$19.99 / £12.99

Here's my find to Save on..
Pictured above is sold by/taken from Choies (click here to be redirected)
Original price - US$25.99 / £15.07
With their ongoing sale - US$15.99 / £9.27 

WHAT AN AMAZING STEAL, RIGHT?
All anyone needs to save a little bit more is just to keep looking for alternatives. I mean, it could be a tiny bit hard cause it's time consuming but its worth it. The extra bit of money we save is a little more money we would have than if we splurged.

This campaign is just to remind all of us to spend wisely :)
Special thanks to Credit Card Insider for allowing me to be part of the Splurge vs. Save Campaign!

Spend wisely you lovelies x

  10. Thanks for your lovely comment! I'm loving these dresses, I'm thinking the second one. They overprice most clothing that's probably the value of this dress anyway!

  21. I think in this case the difference between the two of them is not that significant, but most of the time I usually buy the cheaper version :)
