This month I kept an eye open for a party look I could replicate on a budget but, an image from Anthropologie totally jumped out at me me. It is windswept perfection and I want nothing more than to wander around some kind of heathered hill wearing everything in the picture below. The total, however, for just 4 pieces comes to almost $500 if you buy from Anthropologie. I can do better than that!
Check out my budget picks to get yourself the same look for almost $350 less!
It’s A Gorgeous Outfit… 1 of 6
...but I'm on a budget. Let's see if we can get the look for less!
Image from Anthropologie's gorgeous November Lookbook
Marled Cardigan 2 of 6
Strappy Booties 3 of 6
Plaid Scarf 4 of 6
If we're talking looks then the Anthropologie scarf wins this battle hands down. (It has gorgeous beads sewn onto the black border!) If we're talking warmth and classic appeal though, then the cheaper scarf is a great buy!
Purchase from Anthropologie, $68
Or purchase the alternative from Amazon, $36.95
Pants 5 of 6
The pants Anthro links to from the look book aren't the ones that actually don't appear in the image. And it was the zip pockets peeking out in the inspiration image that sold me on the look. The ones from your link don't have any, Anthropologie! Boo. But does my budget find have them? Why yes, they do.
Purchase at Anthropologie, $98
Or purchase the alternative at JCPenney, $29.99 (on sale)
The Final Breakdown 6 of 6
You could spend $482 and get this killer look from Anthropologie OR save almost $350 and get a similar look for $133.15!
(C'mon, it's a no-brainer.)
