Splurge vs. Steal

Many moms in today’s economy have to watch their pennies and shop a little less than usual to make ends meet.  Some may think in order to stay within the realms of the “trends and “ins” of fashion, one must have a lot of money to spend and for moms that need to be frugal in these trying economic times, that’s just not the case!

If an $850 bib necklace isn’t within your budget, than head to places like Love 21 or Express to purchase more reasonably priced  necklaces.   If you can’t find what your looking for, purchase more than one and layer them to look like you’ve splurged.  You’ll for sure make a statement and the necklace you put together will look like it’s worth a million bucks!

Other trends like fur vests and jackets can also be a tad expensive. If your eye is on a hot fur vest but you can’t afford it for that great party coming up this weekend, no worries!  Faux fur is in!  Don’t feel bad that it’s not the real thing.  With a faux fur purchase, your doing yourself and the worlds animals a favor!  Both very glamorous if you ask us!


So don’t fret!  Every mom wants to look good and has the means to do so.  If your not spending hundreds on your next wardrobe, it’s okay.  Just make sure what you do buy makes you feel happy and beautiful!  It’s not about how expensive your clothes are, it’s about how expensive you feel inside them!
