Bargain Bin: Back to School

Sometimes (all the time) I get a little lost in this virtual world I live in and virtually buy things for my virtual closet. Like for my Back to School post. It’s so easy to point and click that I forget how outrageously expensive some of these items are. Totaled, these items probably cost more than an average semester, including textbooks. My mission was to find similar items on the cheap(er). Hope you still find them as appealing.

The Proenza Schouler PS1 is highly coveted and SOLD OUT on Netaporter. Life is cruel when you know people who can drop that kinda dough on a handbag. Save yourself 1,800 dollars and buy the ASOS version. Just try not to think of the soft, buttery suede of the PS1.

The DSW version of the ASOS pair are only $44.95. Plus, you get a side buckle at no extra cost.

So the Mossimo Leather Moto Jacket is a little different from the Topshop one, but a complete knockoff of The Rick Owens one and a great deal at $39.00. Get on it.

Who needs an 800 dollar wool-blend maxi skirt anyway? Topshop has a more basic one for $36. They also have this scoop back maxi dress. Zexy.

The Diesel dress/sweater is about $120 less than the McQueen cable knit sweater. It’s still kinda pricey at $250, but if you really think about you’re actually getting a two for one.

This Joseph one from Mywardrobe is $140. Compared to the $19.50 GAP one, the purchase is a no-brainer.

You’ll save yourself a hundred bucks if you go with this one versus that one.

Hope this helped some of your financial woes.
