Inspiration / Original vs. Budget #1

I promised you to make a original vs. budget post. Why buy the real thing when there are lovely fakes. Not everyone can spend a $1000/800 euro on a bag or a pair of shoes. Today I am doing a shoes only version. I think I will give this post some other tries with other items.

Here are my shoebudgettips for the moment:
 
Isabel Marant wedge sneakers 450 euro’s vs. Zara wedge sneakers 60 euro’s.
 
Sam Edelman metallic heels 150 euro vs. Zara reflector heels for 40 euro’s.
Remember Sam Edelman came out with a knock-off from the Balenciaga shoe boot in 2009. Now others try to knock-off Sam Edelman and more winterproof anyway.

Chloe boots for 905 euro vs. Zara boots for 100 euro’s.

Do you now understand why I love the Zara so much?
I hope you liked this post? Please let me know in a comment below.

New in / Jewelry and wishlist items

My shopping spree went very succesfull. I love shopping in Germany, because they have them American shopping malls (which aren’t allowed in the Netherlands). I like having all my favorite shops on one location and a roof above my head, since it usually rains. Here are my brand new items.

Jewelry

Earrings – Pieces
Leather necklace – Pieces
Cross Bangles – Be Loved, but you can also find here

From my wishlist / shopping spree

Tweed jacket – Mango
Leather jacket – Zara
Boots – Sacha shoes
Nailpolish – Essie, bikini so teeny – limited edition

I had to leave the leather Zara shopper/bag, because my budget wasn’t able to handle that. But I am still in love <3, should I still get it?
