Shoots, Steals, & Splurges

This weekend I had the pleasure of working with Jason Rizzo of Raleigh Static Photography! It was such an amazing experience and I felt like a real model taking pictures downtown and I even had an outfit change in between! I practiced a SMIZE that I think even Tyra would be proud of!

Now, while I had a model moment I am not bringing in model paychecks so my outfits were still affordable. The jacket I had on for instance was only $25 from JCP! Madewell has a similar one for $178! Now while I am all for splurging every now and then at $25 you can’t beat the price!

Which one do you like better, the splurge or the steal?

Purchase: Splurge|Steal [Not available online anymore, but still in stores]

Stay tuned for my second outfit later this week as well as a stocking stuffer post and giveaway!!
Tis the season!
