Like this? Get this!

You guys know I'm all about not having to spend a lot of money to look good. Let's be honest, most people don't have lots of money to spend on one item of clothing, I know I don't! So I'm thinking of starting a series where I'll show you amazing fashionable high cost items then an equally amazing budget friendly version. It's going to be called "Like this? Get this!" 

I picked this Tibi dress because it's amazing! The bright two-tones and fishtail hem are perfect for summer. The slight chevron print makes it stand out even more. But who has $675 to spend on a dress?! So I found this Dorothy Perkins dress for just $35! (On sale!) It's similar to the Tibi dress with the two-tones and fishtail hem. The pastel colors and fishtail are both on trend, so you get two in one without looking like you tried too hard. And with the Dorothy Perkins dress, you can easily style it for a day-time lunch with friends then out for date-night with your beau. What's better than that?! 

This series might be monthly or weekly I'm honestly not sure yet. I hope you enjoy it! I would love to hear your feedback, so please let me know what you think. And let me know if you want to see anything specific!
