$plurge vs $teal!
I'm back after almost a week.............& I've got a very good reason for my absence. I've been down for most of the week with fever & breathing troubles, that was later diagnosed by the doc as stemming from an acute bout of bronchitis! After having to swallow numerous medicines in different forms (from pills to syrups)(Note: I HATE medicines!!), I'm feeling better now (read: able to sit up & walk about). Hence, for most part of the past week, I was tucked up in bed, under layers of blankets (courtesy: mom), with nothing to do other than watch movies & read.........& of course, follow the fabulous blogs & comment on the stylish prowess of my fashionable blogger friends!!
And I'm not complaining.............since this sudden lack of immunity gave me the chance to take a much-needed rest, not to mention giving me ample time & leisure to catch up on some of my fav chick flicks such as Sex & The City (Parts 1 & 2), Valentine's Day, Music & Lyrics, Breakfast At Tiffany's...... :)
And when I was not watching movies or re-runs of reality shows on TV, I had a stack of my collection of fashion magazines by my side, randomly flipping through innumerable issues of Elle, Vogue & Harper's Bazaar, drooling over beautifully crafted designer pieces & sighing at the perfection of the amazing styling & photo shoots spread out over the glossy pages!
Well............during these lazy & not-feeling-so-well hours, I came across various items (in the magazines & also on the net) which I found absolutely drool-worthy, but way out of my league as far as prices were concerned!! As a result, I made use of my sick-leave finding out other pieces very similar to my coveted picks, but with much reasonable/affordable price tags!!! :))
So, today, I bring to you a Splurge vs Steal post..........where you'll find a list of very similar pieces sporting very different price tags! (My little research also gave me an excuse to put up a post in spite of not having any worthwhile outfit pictures, thanks to the state of my health)
