Friday Finds: Splurge or Save

With each new season comes all of the trends I'm just dying to get my hands on. Right now, I'm really into structured blazers, bags with gold circular hardware, and giant black sunnies (and, I have an entire Pinterest board here that's full of all my fall inspiration).

But what I'm not a fan of is the price tag that comes alongside these trends—sometimes hundreds (if not thousands) of dollars to get your hands on something you'll wear for just one season, maybe two.

To remedy this dilemma, sometimes I find something I love—like this pair of Marni gold earrings, for example, that has a $470 price tag, and I scour the internet for something extremely similar (like these Kenneth Jay Lane ones for $27). Not only do I feel happy about personally scoring a deal, but my bank account is happy, too.

Here are some of my favorite trends right now—and items I'm loving to get the look for less:
