Julie Vos Elephant Bangle/ Forever 21 Elephant Bangle /Pink Pineapple Shop Bow Studs / Kate Spade Bow Studs / FOREVER 21 Dome Studs / Loren Hope Studs
I always love a good look for less post! Let's be honest...teachers do not have it in their budget to be spending a fortune on cute jewels, especially not those that are in today and out tomorrow.
I think you all know how I feel if the piece is an investment piece that you will love and wear forever, but otherwise I love to find the more affordable option!
I came across the adorable elephant bracelet from Julie Vos on Lemon Stripes Store, an adorable online boutique owned by blogger and fellow Instagram friend, Julia from Lemon Stripes. It was love at first sight, but when I saw the price tag, I had a good cry. Teachers on budgets do not buy $85 elephant bangles. Waahhh!
You can imagine how excited I was to see that Forever 21 had come out with a more affordable option!! $5!! Now that's something I can totally afford! I might just buy two :) #jokingimnotjoking
Somehow Forever 21 always saves the day!
I do not own this bracelet from F21 yet, so I cannot vouch for the quality of it, but for $5 I'm willing to take the gamble!
Since summer has arrived, I've been on the hunt for a cute pair of turquoise studs. I've eyed up Loren Hope's pair for at least a year, but never bit the bullet. Now, in looking for a more affordable option, I've found this pair from Forever 21. I really love the rustic look to them. It's almost as if they look aged, which I just adore! It brings out the antique-er in me! What can I say, I love my antique costume jewelry.
I stumbled upon these adorable Kate Spade lookalikes from Pink Pineapple Shop while browsing around and had to include them in this post. I currently own the Kate Spade pair and I LOVE them, but thought this more affordable option was an incredible lookalike. I would totally snag this beauties up if I didn't have them already! I wear them all year long, but specifically love them around the holidays.
Have you found any good looks for less lately?
