Splurge Vs Save - The answer

by Bex

And the answer is...


As of 1.30pm today we had 29 votes with the majority voting for option B!  Although I do like that SvS without the poll gets people to comment (you know how we love comments), this new poll option does seem to get more responses as I guess it's easier to just click your answer :)

A - 11 votes
B - 18 votes

It was really fascinating watching the voting on the poll this morning (I had a quiet morning at work!), the As were in the lead at one point and it was even for quite a while before a last influx of Bs!  I think this is the first time I've ever managed to get anyone to think the save is the splurge but quite a few of you did.  Seeing some of you comment on Twitter about your choices was interesting too. Some basing it on the accessories and others the cut of the clothes. :)

Briony you may be surprised that the necklace was just £11 and the shoes only £20! (Details below.)

What do you all think of the actual outfit?  You can see me wearing something similar (and even cheaper!) below.

Here are the totals and details...


Jane Norman long sleeve sweater £22

River Island coat £80

Forever 21 black boots £20

Leopard print scarve £12

Pants £29.99

Total = 174.99


Ralph Lauren Black Label sweater £275

Rochas woolen coat £1,675

STELLA McCARTNEY sequin pants £512

McQ by Alexander McQueen peep toe booties £445

Tatty Devine chain jewelry £86

Yigal Azrouël print scarve £235

Total = £3228

And my own outfit...

Jumper - Miss Sixty @ T K Maxx £14.99 (I think)
Coat - Gannex @ Oxfam - £24.99
Trousers - H&M (as above but in the sale and with a discount code) £11.25
Boots - Office - £40
Necklace - Sugar & Vice - £21
Scarf - M&S - £20 (I think)

Total = £132.23

Which is your favourite version and did you guess correctly?

Linking up with Transatlantic blonde again this week, check out What I Wore Wednesday.

I totally guessed wrong, thought the shoes and coat in outfit A looked far nicer/more expensive than outfit B!! I do really like the expensive black sweater from outfit B though ;)

Wow! I love this – and I love that I was wrong! Haha! I though the details on the shoes and necklace looked more expensive but I'm excited to know that they're the save option :)

Fab post! x

Surprise, surprise I liked the expensive one more and therefore I did call it. I am a sucker for expensive shoes!
