Splurge or Save: High End vs High Street

Now, I know some people are generally a splurger (if that’s word..) or a saver. If I’m honest I’m both, and it depends on the price point. I am not a girl to go spending £3000 on a handbag, however I do own a belt that cost £320? You see my point? Some people may think that’s crazy.. how can anyone spend that amount of money on a belt? Well, to me its an investment piece and something that goes with everything in my wardrobe, so I’m not complaining. On the other hand, that Gucci bag I’m lustering over that’s, as I said, £3000, no thanks, I’ll try and grab a dupe of that else where, thank you!!

I thought this post would be helpful to people that either want to splurge, save or maybe even both like me. I know fashion is forever changing and some things you know will be on trend for years and years, whereas other pieces you would rather go for a cheaper alternative as it won’t be around for long. These are some staples within the high end and high street that are in trend this season, but if you don’t want to invest then you can grab yourself a great duplicate for a bargain.
