Crave vs. Save

Wednesday, July 18, 2012

Ever walk into a store and eye a piece that you physically cannot walk away from? That's what happened to me when I spotted this leather peplum number by Rebecca Minkoff. It's like the thing developed a gravitational pull that would not let me go.

Now I've justified some ridiculous purchases in the past. But I just couldn't bring myself to spend almost $400 on a top that, even in all its buttery leather suppleness, I probably wouldn't wear more than once or twice. My inner goddess stomped her foot. (Hello, we are talking about a leather bondage-esque top. I couldn't resist the 50 Shades of Grey reference.)

And then as if the stars had aligned, I happened upon THIS just-as-cute-but-much-more-affordable version from Piperlime. Naturally, as any Pro Justifier would do, I took it as a cosmic sign that I must own this top. And bought it.

I can't wait to pair this top with pencil skirts for daytime and jeans and printed pumps for nighttime. Which top would you buy? Crave or save?



Thank you for stopping by and leaving some love!
