I truly believe that you should spend your money on the classics. Items that you will wear time and time again. Sometimes a designer item becomes so popular that everyone marks it as an instant classic. It's tough to determine if that's really the case! I like to buy the knock-off, take it for a test drive and then determine if I really feel like shelling out the big bucks. Remember the Phillip Lim for Target collection? Genius. I snatched one of those babies right up!
I also love finding a good deal (and knock off!)… Points if they're in my price range. Have you found any stellar look-a-likes?
