If you’ve been following my blog for a while, then you know I’m a bargain shopper. I started doing Style Snatches to show you all that you don’t have to spend a lot of money to get the same looks celebrities wear. Even when I buy “splurge” items, I never pay full price…that’s just unheard of to me! One of the things I find most fun about shopping, is finding an expensive item that I REALLY want, then either looking for it on eBay or finding something that looks very similar for much less money.
For the LONGEST time, I’ve wanted J. Crew’s Fair Isle Sweater (pictured below). I loved it so much…but I just could NOT bring myself to pay $148 for it. And this time around, eBay wasn’t any help because it was such a coveted sweater that it was equally as expensive and in some cases even more money! So what’s a girl to do? Search and search until I could find one that looks just like it for less!
When I saw Old Navy’s Fair Isle Sweater I literally flipped out! It is SO similar to J. Crew’s! Now you know I had to buy it…IMMEDIATELY! LOL! Oh! And it was only $30!
Here’s J. Crew’s Fair Isle Sweater for $148:
And here’s my look with Old Navy’s Fair Isle Sweater:

I think is sweater is solid proof that where there’s a great piece that’s too expensive for your budget…there’s an equally great piece that fits your budget PERFECTLY!
So, what’s your strategy for comparison shopping?
Until next time!
