Buy This, Not That

Forever 21
Vera Wang Lavendar Label

I've been eyeing these Vera Wang jellies for a while now and wondering if I could justify spending $95 on shoes made of plastic. Well, I'm so glad I held out because I just found these from Forever 21 for $9.80. Score!

I'm just thinking about how we are going to spend the $85.20 we just saved. You can't afford not to buy them! Score!

Get the F21s! If there is anything I remember about jellies from the 90's is the BLISTERS. The design of those sandals may avoid that, but be warned, pampering must follow use.

Jellies take me back to when I was 12. I love that they are back in style! I also love that I can't tell the difference between the F21 and the VW's.

Have a great weekend!
