the switch: the neon satchel

neon cambridge satchel

getting a trend for less is such a score. i bought the much coveted cambridge neon pink satchel a few months back (it’s sold out most places right now but it’s always being restocked). this cheaper version is a pretty good dupe… and it’s 1/3 the price!

oh, and by the way, i’ve received some great submissions from my readers for the spring fashion feature – if you haven’t sent yours in yet, get it in today and i’ll put it up on the site! details here!

the switch: jean edition

the switch

while these pairs of jeans may look slightly different – you can chalk that up to styling. amazing what a pair of heels can do! instead of dropping almost $200 on a pair of jeans, switch them out for the budget version and save up for a lux bag instead…

the switch: high fashion vs. high street

the switch

the fundamental principal (and tagline!) behind {the sparkle} is “the everygirl’s guide to the good life” and while the “everygirl” likes to live the “good life” she’s smart about how she spends her money. i myself have been guilty of coveting these beautiful ysl tribtoo shoes to no avail… so, if you can swap out a pricey designer item for a high street find, have at it.
