Spend or Save January 2020

Whilst browsing on the Internet and scrolling through my Instagram feed, I noticed a few affordable alternatives to more expensive fashion items. Naturally, I thought it was time for another ‘Spend or Save’ post! I hope you enjoy this!

Country Road vs Target

If you’re looking for the perfect casual alternative to the white blazer, then a linen blazer is it! Personally, I don’t like spending too much on white as it yellows with age. I’ve found this even applies to more hardy materials like silk, so it’s just not worth it in the long run.

IDS vs Kmart

Kmart’s popularity is testament to its ability to make fashion trends accessible to a wide audience. Kmart doesn’t update their website as soon as their stocks arrive in store, but Instagram keeps me up to date. The Instagram page ‘Everyday Kmart‘ is my favourite for finding out about the latest stock.

Realisation Par vs Cotton On

Realisation Par has influenced a lot of trends over the past few years. It feels like Aussie brands like Sportsgirl and Cotton On get a lot of inspiration from this popular brand.

Spell & The Gypsy Collective vs Sportsgirl

Spell and The Gypsy Collective have beautiful boho chic dresses, but they are a little on the expensive side. Sportsgirl has a similar alternative to this cute dress!
