Finally new collections are here and in a day or two I'll have to start my usual fall fashion spree.
As I'm definitely a shopaholic (with a limited budget though), this year I decided to follow my New Year's Eve resolution and "buy with(in) reason".
That means not giving in to the urges and impulses of everything I see (and for sure don't need but they just look nice) and buying with a LIST.
A list I have already made by (step 1) browsing my wardrobe and deciding what I need most and (step 2) browsing online and finding the alternative prices for each item.
So it goes like this:
I need fall black boots. That I can wear with boyfriend / skinny jeans and leggings. I do however need a bit of heel, so here are my alternatives:
a). SPLURGE: Tibi Piper Black Boots, 598 USD
b). SAVE: H&M Platform Boots (not even in the same category but still black biker boots with a height boost) 60 USD
I really need a pair of really cute sneakers.
a) SPLURGE: Giuseppe Zanotti black and gold sneakers 850 USD
b) SAVE: Supra TK Society High Tops 77 USD
Plus a nice cross body bag that can hold all of my items and still leave room for my scarf.
a) SPLURGE: Alexander McQueen Heroine Tote 2760 USD
b) SAVE: Zara Leather City Bag 180 USD
Of course I need some really nice sweaters and knitwear...
a). SPLURGE way 1: Kenzo Logo Print Sweater 520 USD
a). SPLURGE way 2 (just kidding this time) Zara Mohair Sweater 50 USD
and Zara Square Cut Cable Knit Sweater 100 USD
SAVE: H&M Sweater 30 USD
H&M Knitted Jumper 45 USD
H&M Polo Neck Jumper 100 USD
Then of course I need new pairs of jeans and leggings:
a). SPLURGE: True Religion Skinny Jeans 900 USD
b). SAVE: Zara Dark Washed Jeans 100 USD
a). SPLURGE: Milly Leather Leggings Black 1000 USD
b). SAVE: H&M Faux Leather Leggings 20 USD
Beanies are so in and I love them so much so I might need 2 or 3 pcs. in different colors:
MSBHV Beanie 30 USD
Zara Knitted Black Hat 10 USD
ASOS - Barts Claire Faux Fur Beanie 65 USD
So this is Part 1 of my checklist, will be back soon with part 2 which includes my other accessories and cosmetics wish list.
