Cheaper Alternatives

Dear Fashion Diary,

I've been seeing these striped blazers Everywhere and finally got my hands
on one. I found pretty much the same one at Express for $98. 
I'm talking, almost identical. Yet mine was only 
around 12 bucks! Thank you, TJ Maxx.
Yet another example of how you can Always find a cheaper alternative
to something expensive. To my normal readers I must sound like a broken record, but my rule is to never spend a lot
of money on one cute thing when I know the same thing exists
somewhere else for much less!
In other news, I finally attended my first blog event here in AZ! 
I can't wait to post pictures. Lulu's hosted the event 
and I had a blast. I even spotted a couple other fashion bloggers there!
Have a lovely week everyone!

I think not everyone can wear that skirt length but you definitely can and it suits you SO well! especially when paired with sky high heels like those here. and the striped blazer is awesome too! I love stripes more & more.

Those colorblocked heels are gorgeous! That blazer was a major steal. I can never find anything at my TJ Maxx, so I'm starting to think mine is not nearly as good as everyone else's! I'm a new follower :)
