fashion: look for less

I love a good look for less. It's one of my favorite things to discover and I'm always on the lookout for steals and deals that mimic higher priced items. Below is a picture of a Michael Kors bag that retails for about $300. The designer version is leather so that is part of the reason it's so expensive but it's always got the fancy label of Michael Kors on it, which pushes the price up as well. I love the look of this bag. It's very chic and I love the stripes. It's also very roomy- perfect for a mommy on the go. But of course, I'm not paying $300 for a bag. Never, no way. I'm just too cheap for that. 
I'm in Wal-Mart on a weekly basis. Sometimes bi-weekly. Like everyone else, I don't enjoy going to Wal-Mart. I prefer Target but Wal-Mart is closer to my house and cheaper so I go. Every Friday morning with Olivia in tow (while Julianna is at preschool). We get our groceries there but I always make a pit stop in the clothing and accessories to see if they have anything worth looking it. Usually I don't find anything but I saw these bags there about 2 weeks ago. I loved the look of them and they reminded me of something I had seen before so I did a little research and stumbled upon the Michael Kors bag above. 


I went back this past Friday and the striped bag was gone. So I went to the other Wal-Mart in the area and they had one left. It was meant to be. Oh and did I mention that the inside is lined with polka dots?! Stripes and polka dots... and only $19. Now that pretty bag is mine! I styled it for the first time in the "Perfectly Parisian" look for Style Me March and I think it was the perfect accessory for the look. Now go to Wal-Mart and get yours hands on this cute bag before their gone! 

A big thanks to my cute husband for snapping this shot of my favorite heels and new bag.
