Steal vs The Real Deal

I read fashion magazines religiously and they have such beautiful things featured...a $3,000 Burberry trench or a Jil Sander shift dress for a $1,000 and they label it a "must have" this month.  Ah yes, when i daydream i too can afford couture and designer clothes, have a separate room for my fabulous shoes/bag collection but then my phone rings and i crash in my reality where rent is always more important than a coat no matter how timeless and stunning it is.  So here goes my version of The Real Deal with some shockingly affordable and very similar pieces for a Steal.

Urban Outfitters, Balenciaga, Jimmy Choo, Steve Madden
