the look for less.

It can be hard sometimes to look through a catalog and know that everything is out of your price range! I'm a catalog fanatic, I love love when companies get catalogs right...there's nothing better. I love those particular catalogs so much because they mix my three favorite, clothes, & print (magazines & paper). I have put myself on a mission to find pieces from my favorite pricey catalogs and find a less expensive (but still chic!) alternative. We have to face it, when we walk into clothing stores, we can usually find at least a few items that remind us of something else we've seen from another store. Whether it be the print, style, color, or a pretty dead-on look-a-like. I want to find those similar clothes, those look-a-likes, and post them on here for you to see. We may never afford the crazy prices of our dream stores, but who says we can't come close?!
