Deciding where to invest in fashion is one of those talents requiring time and experience. Most of us have bought unwisely at one time or another despite our budget. I have never been one to buy only designer for I believe real style is not about a label. Some designers charge a bomb and it is worth every penny; others do and it is simply not.
I take an open-minded approach to designer wear and consider some pieces worth the investment and others, well others we can buy “less” and get as much if not more. “Get the look” and all that.
Faux leopard is one of those.
I was browsing faux coats looking for a new one for this coming winter. It’s time. Faux and leopard are the scene-stealers this year. I found an amazing coat, truly stunning but one which had me coughing and spluttering over the price.
There is good news? It set me on a path to find a “less is more” version because when I wear the lookalike, I will look – alike. And I am looking for faux.
This coat is just as stunning and a fraction of the price – it is still expensive but a considered investment. This other one at a fraction of the price is gorgeous and will also do the job beautifully.
There are places to save when re-inventing the wardrobe and this is one of them. xv
