“Why Spend All That Money” is a new series that I am toying around with. Its a splurge vs. steal concept. Hey, I’m as fa-fa-chi-chi as they come but let’s get real. The economy is what it is and I like saving a few smakeroos when I can. So to kick off my new series…
“Why Spend All That Money” on Free People Rosey Lace Slip – $68
When you can head on over to Tarjay and get a like facsimile for only 9.99.
I know. I know. You’re whining…“But Felicia, the Free People item is a “slip” while the Target item is a “cami”.
Ohhh brother! If you’re gonna save damn near $50 on this particular item of clothing you need to exercise a little creativity. I have been eye balling the Free People Rosey Lace Slip for quite some time. Its a great layering piece and this season I am all about my layers. However, the $68 price tag made me a little gun shy and kept me admiring this cutesy little piece from a far. When I spied the Target cami for $9.99, my creative juices began to flow. Ms ThisThatBeauty is generally a size XS or S when it comes to tanks and camis. But because I wanted this particular item to have a slip-like look and serve as a layering piece, I sized up to XXL and voila…Le bad boy fits like a slip and is awesome for layering. I’m so pleased with my discovery that I copped the Target cami in both purple and white lace! So for those ThisThatBeauty readers keeping score – that’s two camis for the price of less than one Free People Rosey Lace Slip.
Yep…”Why Spend All That Money”.
