It is easy to get caught up in the "name brand" game and I know that I definitely do. Although, in many cases I think it is smart to find cheaper alternatives, especially when it comes to trendier items, such as colored denim, peplum, etc. We don't all have the budgets of movie stars (and popular bloggers). Forever 21 is a store that a frequent hat satisfies that trendy side of mine without breaking the bank. Here are a few of their new arrivals that I am loving. What is your take on spend versus save for those trendier items?
