Easter Wears

Easter

 

Whenever I open up Polyvore, my original goal is always creating cute, affordable options, but affordable products aren’t always an option on there. Once I find one item I like (the blouse did it this time), I throw my wallet to the curb and just start putting something together. When I added in this awesome trench coat today I stopped and looked at the price and thought “what the heck am I doing?!” I can’t afford this stuff, but sometimes it’s nice to dream, isn’t it?

 

Do you fall into this trap, too?
Do you get frustrated looking at outfits you can’t afford?
Would you prefer if I added in more affordable options to these outfit creations?

  1. Story of my life. I can’t afford 99% of what people post on blogs or what brands are available on Polyvore. It’s still fun to look, but it does get discouraging sometimes. Luckily, I always tend to find fashionable items at a low price and get compliments on my [cheap] outfits, so it’s do-able!

    • Right? I have no choice but to find the cheaper version of these items out in Marshals, Target, Old Navy, etc. I just wish my online closet had more realistic options haha

  2. That trench is so awesome–I love the color combo! I feel ya about the price point thing, but luckily with all the options out there these days, it’s much easier to find things that fit our minimal budgets!

    • So true, Alyssa. Although if anyone is interested in adding to my clothing budget I wouldn’t turn it down 😉

  3. That’s the problem with Polyvore, I always end up wanting things that I clearly can’t afford! That coral color is amazing for easter though!

  4. I love the combo of ivory and coral, it’s so pretty! Hahaha I think that happens to all of us Jenn! I bet we all wish we had bottomless wallets so we could buy everything our heart desires! I have very expensive taste (my poor husband!) so I really have to try not to blow the budget when I’m out shopping because it’s so easy to. Lately my goal has been to invest in good pieces and mix in some great budget finds!

    • Right? I’m still trying to figure out where that money tree is that my dad kept talking about… hahha Good pieces and budget finds are definitely the way to go!

  5. ahhhhhh, such a trap! I love when I start justifying it too:-) “oh, $400 isn’t really thaaaaaat much money! I’ll wear it 400 times and it’ll practically pay for itself!” haha! Nope! xoxo

    • I don’t know? Maybe if enough of us send them emails asking why it’s so expensive they will feel bad and throw us a bone?

  6. So I think it is definitely a common “problem” for most women…especially those in the blogging world! But it is always important to be open to inspiration no matter the price 🙂 So I try to find styles that I like (LOVE that trench!) and then look for similar items that are a little easier on the wallet.
    Such a beautiful style btw…that cream blouse is gorgeous.

    • Thanks Marion! I try to keep a good balance of some higher-end worth while pieces and some simple pieces at great prices in my closet.

  7. I love that bright peach blazer! Sometimes I get frustrated by the stuff I can’t buy, but like you said, it’s fun to dream!
