 It's finally Summer (officially!) and that means, travel, ice cream dates, weekend adventures and of course, colorful outfits. Color blocking has always been one of my favorite trends because, well, I love color. In this look, I decided to pair solid colors with this fabulous floral jacket. Last summer, while I was in Italy, I popped into Dolce & Gabbana to do some much-needed window shopping and I spotted this jacket. It was stunning, something that will live forever in my dreams, because the price tag was crazy expensive. I mean, don't get me wrong, I know you're paying for the concept and the expert craftsmanship but, it's just not in my budget. So then, a few months go by and I'm shopping on one of my favorite bargain websites - Sheinsde when I spot this beauty. It's a total wannabe version of the dolce and gabbana jacket that I fell in love with! I paid around $20 for it. Needless to say, Sheinside has quickly become one of my favorite sites. They have all of the trends without the scary price tag. I'm a bit obsessed. 

Does this ever happen to you? Do you fall in love with designer pieces and find similar versions of it for a fraction of the price? I love a good deal so be sure to share! Come back again soon!

  8. Yes, totally i always experienced that one. like i saw a designer clothes online and when i checked on my other favorite online shop they have exactly the same cut and color and design but different labels and price. But i always go for the cheaper one. ^^ Fashion for me is not wearing the most expensive one but on how you wear it. ^^


    1. I couldn't agree more! Thanks so much for sharing!
