Splurge vs steal

Ever walked into a store and saw something you couldn't take your eyes off and think you just have to buy it? But.... you look at the price, gasp, sigh and quietly put it back! It happens to everyone. How you wish you could magically zap all the lust-worthy clothes, accesories and shoes you see on your favorite celeb, on the runway, in a high end designer store or heck, even on Pinterest, right into your closet. Well, you could do that. Sort of. Not by magic but by looking for inexpensive alternatives and lookalikes of your favorite luxury pieces in your highstreet stores. Never underestimate the power of highstreet! They've got some serious fashion! You don't have to necessarily burn the bank to look fabulous. Sometimes happiness is found in your very own backyard... I mean, highstreet store! Check out what can you steal from the real:

10 things that need to go from your wardrobe

I was clearing out my wardrobe the other day and found a few clothes lying in one corner, some of which i don't even remember buying, or even if i did, i hadn't worn them since ages and some were just plain ancient. They were just unnecessarily taking up space in my closet and had to be cleared out. De-cluttering your wardrobe has to one of the most tiring tasks. What to keep? What needs to go? Does this fit me anymore? Is this in? Does this colour look good on me? WHEN DID I BUY THIS? Gosh! Confusion and more confusion. This problem is something which is very commonly faced by everyone. An organized and clutter-free closet makes things very easy! It helps you to choose your outfits more conveniently and helps you to ditch saying "I have nothing to wear!" while standing in front of a closet full of clothes. Here's a list of items that you probably have lying somewhere in your closet and you need to bid goodbye to and deport them to Trashland! You might as well use it as a checklist of sorts to clear out unwanted and definitely outdated items from your wardrobe!
