Vince Or CAbi

Fashion is all about what's right for you at this moment. Which is what I adore about it.  The fact is, if you like a certain look or aesthetic, you shouldn't have to pay high designer prices to get it. I rarely do.

Vince is probably my favorite designer label. It's all about clean lines, loose shapes, solid colors + muted prints, subtle-classic-elegant-fashion forward dressing. I LOVE everything about Vince, and their shoes and accessories are the bomb. I'm talking Vince. Not Vince Camuto (who makes shoes I do like) or Vince anything else. 

Just Vince. Thing is, it's pricey. Like 2-3x what I want to spend on this type of basic.
This season I'm thrilled to say CAbi and Vince were on the same page with a lot of their designs. So....if you're like me and want some Vince-looking designer clothing, you can get it with likely better quality and lesser prices from CAbi.
Every single comparison here is available NOW from Vince @ Nordstrom (all on the left) or by CAbi from me, all on the right. What speaks to you? Wish I could take one of each!
I'm all in favor of a high-end designer look without necessarily paying for a designer label. Sometimes you can get lucky & find designer labels (at say, Nordstrom Rack for instance), other times it's just better to buy something that looks like the designer for a fraction of the price. It's all how you wear it anyway since the labels are on the inside...

Take Me To Dinner

Headed to dinner in Seattle typically doesn't involve wearing a dress. I love to dress up as much as the next gal, but on the regular the women 'round here wear jeans. Dressed up a little (??!!) haha...often not at all...but it makes me look a lot less conspicuous with my heels & glitzy necklaces if there are jeans on the bottom. 
What I'm Wearing //
Fleather Shell, Arm Warmers, & Static Jacket // old CAbi  (jacket last seen here)
Boyfriend Jeans // Gap (& a $30 Target option)
Cleo Bag // Oscar & Anna 
(also available locally at My Dressing Room on Queen Anne)
Booties // Cole Haan via Nordstrom Rack (tons of similar ones on sale at Nordy's!)

You can literally jazz up any outfit by adding a little jacket or blazer. It's one of my all time favorite looks. Without it, this look is fine...with it, it looks like an outfit. Love me a blazer.
