Splurge VS Steal

Sometimes it's hard to make wise spending choices when you see cute things everywhere.
If I see something I love that is way beyond my budget,
 I like to see if I can find a similar item at a lower cost.

I came across this adorable sweater from ASOS
 and fell in love with it.

 Sadly, it was way beyond what I was willing to pay.

Then I came across this similar sweater at Old Navy.

I immediately bought it. 
 I haven't worn it yet,
 as I just got it,
 but I can't wait to style it. 
 It would be perfect for July 4th.  

Which sweater would you choose?  
The Splurge or Save style?

This post is part of the Splurge VS Style campaign
 by Credit Card Insider which puts the word out to spend wisely.

I wouldn't want any sweater with holes in it, even if they were supposed to be there.

I cannot think of any sweater that I would pay that much for. The Old Navy sweater is actually more stylish!

Easy - I don't wear sweaters, so neither! I'd spend my cash on vintage instead, you get more bang for your buck! xx

Tell me about it. Making the right choice is never easy when it comes between what you love and what you can afford.
