Splurge Vs Save - The answer

by Bex

And the answer is...

B!

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.

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!
