Real vs. Steal: Coated Denim

The-Fashion-Bite-x-AOS-Mya-Moto

So… coated denim is kind of my thing as of late! It gives you the best of both worlds IMHO. I love the look of leather, but hate feeling like I’m stuck in a sauna. Ick. Coated denim lets you feel like you’re wearing super comfy jeans, but with a rocker edge that’s right up my alley.

You know what’s not up my alley…? Spending $200 on a pair of jeans. I mean. Are you insane?!? I’ll admit… I used to fall into the “designer jeans trap” myself, then I grew up and got smart.

Yes, the Paige Verdugo Coated Skinnies are adorbs, but you can get an equally amazing pair for less than half the price. These Mya Motos from the AOS fall collection are to die for. I am beyond obsessed and have been living in mine ever since I scored a pair.

So, do I even have to ask…? Are you going to splurge on the real… or save with the steal?

Real Vs. Steal: Bootie Call

So, time to spill a dirty little secret. I’m a shoe addict… particularly when it comes to boots. I probably have 25+ pairs of black boots alone, and I’m not sorry about it.

These bad boys are my absolute fav!! They may look a little intense, but I swear they are beyond comfortable and go with literally everything + I kind of feel like Jack Skellington when I wear them which to me is a total plus!

Yes, these gorgeous UNIF Neo booties are absolutely to die… I know they’re platforms and all, but $215 is a little steep if you ask me <– get it… steep, platforms, k. Oh ya, another ‘lil secret… I ♥ bad puns, lolz.

So back to the shoes. The H&M version is a quarter of the price and wayyyyy cuter IMHO. I’m so obsessed with the front zips, ribbed padding, and chunky soles. Plus, this version is totally vegan & animal friendly <– woo hoo!

So, spill… would you splurge on the real or save with the steal?
