Splurge or Save: Leopard Denim

I stayed out of the Jason Wu for target craziness this past weekend, nothing really spoke to me to wait in line for. But I did have to stop by to grab some normal household items, so Monday night I made the venture and spotted something that had to come home with me.

Now I beg you to answer - splurge or save?

I saved, and happy to admit it! I went with the Camel Leopard although seeing the Grey Leopard above, I think I need these too! I have wanted the Current Elliot version for quite some time, I ogle them every time I'm at Saks and Nordstroms....but didn't like the price tag on the more trend driven item. And I'm not feeling an ounce of guilt for buying this knock-off cheap version....and then maybe a second pair - together for under $45 bucks! 

They are so fun and are much more muted in person - and really read as a neutral. Celebs have been spotted all over in them - because they are so fab! 

Here is one way I plan to wear them! 

For a fun night out - classic yet updated and fresh!!! And quite possible exactly what I'll be wearing Sat night for a little girls night out!!!! Now add a pop of color in the shoes? Red pumps, Purple pumps or Basic black?

Are you going to save too?? What do you think???

  1. oooh I likeeeee! I've been in the search for some good knock offs but haven't found any yet. I would definitely spice them up a bit with red pumps!

  3. There's no debate. I would pick the save option, and wouldn't they look awesome with a red sweater and black shiny pumps for Valentine's? Hmmmmm.....

  4. Save-obviously. I passed these the other day in Target, but I was in a rush and didn't get a chance to try them on. Must go back. This may be one of my favorite outfit inspiration looks yet. I vote for red pumps. And, oh my gosh that bag, yes please. xo

  5. Wait, do you have that lovely Alexander Wang bag??! I love that bag and was oogling them this week at Barney's.

    I would go save all the way, since they are pretty darn close to the original. I didn't pick them up when I saw them in store, but I have been thinking I should go back and get myself a pair.

  19. I would have definitely made the same pick, Taylor! I love fun trends like these--but I opt to buy something a little cheaper when I'm not sure about the staying power ;) Hope you're feeling better, my love...xoxo {av}

  22. You were absolutely right to save! I always go with the less pricey options when it comes to trends. And I love that you already have an outfit in mind...proof that they will be worth the purchase!
