Splurge or save?

My friend Kathleen asked me to do a little splurge or save feature à la some of our favorite magazines. When I stumbled upon these two darling peplum tops, I knew the time had come!



I truthfully prefer the less expensive option (cap sleeves aren't the most flattering, in my humble opinion!) although there's no comparison when it comes to quality. So tell me, would you splurge or save?

I like the save one better. The navy color is nice and makes the lighter blue pop more.

Cap sleeves are not kind to this girl! Save it! Xo

I agree the save option is the winner here. I'm not afraid to admit I LOVE Forever 21! I like to splurge on investment wardrobe pieces, but save on trendier ones like this.

I completely agree, the F21 version is much cuter. And for a trend piece like this, you might as well save. Adorable!

I agree about the sleeves, and I kind of like the two-toned colour. In this case, F21 wins for me! xo

I think I would save! I agree that there's no comparison for quality, but overall I think I truly do like the cheaper style better! xo

I definitely prefer the save option!

Logan Rae said...

Definitely the save one. If you look at the back, it is open, and the other one doesn't even show the back, so it probably is not and I love back details

Bettina said...

Save. I like the two toned version better and agree, cap sleeves aren't always flattering.

I'd say save here! Love the Forever 21 option!

I would save! I actually like the two tone better anyway, and you're right about the cap sleeves.. never a good idea. Hope you had a great weekend!
