OTK boot: Splurge: 5050 Stuart Weitzman, Save: Vince Camuto Karita
Vintage Statement Necklace: Splurge: StellaDot, Save: BaubleBar
Cableknit Sweater: Splurge: The Row, Save: Madewell

I've been obsessing over the Stuart Weitzman 5050 over the knee boots in black suede. Problem is they would set me back 600 dollars and I kinda need to pay the mortgage. So I set out on another familiar mission of trying to find a cheaper, similar option. I think the Vince Camuto Karita boots are looking extremely close. One reader review actually compared them to the 5050 and called them a great deal. Sold!

As far as bargain finds for jewels and baubles, BaubleBar is the place to go. I love the overabundance of fun gems and statement pieces that are always on trend. Head over there now for the Friends and Family deal. 10% off a $50 dollar purchase and the savings go up the more you spend. You can find many amazing finds under fifty on Stella & Dot, but for this round, BB wins. 

I'm on the hunt for an oversized chunky cable knit sweater. [Hello 1990's, it's me, Becky] The Row option should not even be called an option. If you ever find me spending one thousand three hundred and twenty dollars on a sweater then I've won the lottery in which case, I'll buy you one too.  For now, I'll stick with the fab choice from Madewell. 

What are you desperately wanting to splurge on but know you can't? Let's share in the fashion torture!
