the look for less

With the way trends are theses days it seems whatever you buy is trumped by a new style the next day. It's difficult to keep up with the ever changing looks of the fashion world never mind spending a paycheck on a fab item only to have that item on the "do not wear" list the next week is hardly ideal. I try to keep up with styles that are current but that also aren't too trendy in hopes that I don't hate them too quickly. I, however have fallen prey to trends and sometimes when I finally have the nerve to wear the new style it's no longer tasteful and my money is wasted. So this begs me to ask the question - why spend so much on the items I am not so sure about. The options are endless for looks that resemble the high price tag items. H&M and Forever 21 are the two obvious stores that allow you to give a trend a try without breaking the bank but the quality may not always be up to par. Below I put together what I think are some stylish finds for achieving the look for less.

Tibi Shift Dress - $396
