The saying, “ballin’ on a budget” pretty much sums up my life right now and I’m okay with that. Except…I recently failed at life and splurged on a pair of Prada sunnies (pictured above). I know– sticker shock, right?! While I love my sunnies and they’re the only designer purchase I’ve ever made for myself, it still hurts a little every time I think about how much I spent on them. Especially because I found a pair that look IDENTICAL for less than the cost of a burrito bowl at Chipotle!…

I know it’s okay to want the finer things in life and splurge every now and again, but I’m a realist and I know I REALLY can’t afford a lot of the things I’d love in my closet. Brian (my boyfriend) always says I have “champagne taste on a beer budget”.  So, I set out on a mission to find pieces inspired by the high-end designer labels I dream about, but that I can afford on my “beer budget”.

Hopefully you find this post helpful and are able to shop without feeling guilty or breaking the bank! Let me know if you end up buying anything! I’m currently eyeing the $34.90 Steve Madden inspired booties– perfect for fall.
