Splurge vs. Steal: Holiday Gifts for the Fashionista Edition

Splurge vs. Steal Picks at
Happy Friday! Is everyone done with their holiday shopping? Me neither. This week I've rounded up a few look-for-less finds that would make great gifts, too. Let's get started!

Wishbone Necklace: I've never seen a Jennifer Meyer jewelry piece I wouldn't wear. This celebrity fave would make a fab investment for a special occasion or to mark a milestone in your life. I saw the "steal" at Target a little while ago and instantly fell in love! This oversized pendant is the perfect finishing touch to simple outfits. Layer for extra drama.

Lips & Lashes Tee: I feel a little bad sharing this steal because it's a blatant knockoff of a Sincerely Jules tee! See how the top fashion blogger is styling hers on the Nordstrom site by following the "splurge" link below. With free shipping and returns, and better quality material, it's worth paying a little more for this one.

Quilted Vest: I have a mild obsession with Barbour jackets but they're a bit out of my price range. The vest, however, is calling my name and under $200! Still, knowing me, I'd probably go for the look for less and be just as satisfied if not more so knowing that I could wear my vest around my kids and not worry about getting a little dirt on it!
