Splurge vs. Save Campaign

by - July 02, 2014



Happy Wednesday! I'm so excited to share with you a campaign I am newly a part of. Credit Card Insider is spreading the word about spending responsibly, and they have asked me to help get that knowledge out to my wonderful readers! For some time, I have been coveting the dress you see above. The only problem, though, is that it's from Barney's, and it's over a thousand dollars! Thankfully, I was browsing a local thrift store the other day when I found an amazing dress that in my opinion, is even more beautiful. The sheer details match that of the Barney's dress, however, it takes the cake with its beautiful display of decorative gold buttons. My dress is originally from H&M, so even if I had found it in the store, it most likely wouldn't have been more than twenty dollars, but I scored it for only five! I styled it with a matching gold belt from Forever 21 and an adorable Vince Camuto backpack. Now that's what I call responsible spending!

Splurge: Barney's New York Chiffon Dress $1,095

Save: Thrifted H&M Dress $5

Savings: $1,090!

  9. Nice find! I honestly feel like I have been such a budgeter out of necessity for long that even if I became rich, I wouldn't buy a $1000 dress. Haha, old habits die hard.
