There is a hint of autumn in the air here in Copenhagen and we need to add a few layers and warmth to our wardrobe. My daughter and I were just out shopping for fall and she fell in love with several designer pieces that were maybe a bit out of our budget. While I would love to fill my kids’ closets with stunning designer pieces and find them incredibly inspiring, like most of you, we are a family on a budget. Maybe every now and then we will splash out and splurge on a piece that will get it’s wear but mostly we hit the racks of the high street in search of pieces that will be just as stunning without the Designer Price Tag.
It is hard to believe that there is almost a $1,500 difference between the two outfits! Are you shocked? If I had the extra money, I think I would be tempted to pocket it and head out for a little weekend excursion to London… or maybe Paris!
