lust vs. love!

{Lust | Love}

I was so in love with this Madewell sweater from the first moment I saw it. But I really couldn't justify spending $88 on it. This Old Navy version is perfect and for a fraction of the cost. I so, so want it!

{Lust | Love}

Okay let's be honest, I love both of these options. But $25!!! You can't beat that for a vest. You could get all three colors for less than the J. Crew vest! See how I styled the green one here.

{Lust | Love}

I love cashmere as much as the next girl, but what I really love about the J. Crew sweater is those perfect polka dots. I know that Old Navy had a polka dot top earlier this year (which I have) but I kind of prefer this one because it's a little bit more substantial as far as sweaters go. And I am so in love with every single color. I just can't pick a favorite!

{Lust | Love}

I do adore the lust shoe but $125 for flats is a bit too much for me. The Old Navy ones are not quite as sleek but still super cute. And I love all the color options. I'll take the black, coral and grey please!

What do you think? Are you into the lust or loves here?

  2. I'm so excited you posted this! I bought the old navy polka dot sweater but really wanted the tan version and they sold out. These are long sleeve vs 3/4 so excited! Also I love those shoes!

  4. I just love when you do these posts because you always manage to find "Loves" that are as good as, if not BETTER than the "lust"! I actually prefer the Old Navy Sheep Sweater!

  5. I am soooo into the loves! I tried to find the lamb sweater in the fox print at our old navy and they don't carry it. Waiting on a good shipping deal or a %off before buying.

    1. I know! I love that fox print but when I went online it looked like it was sold out. I hope that's not the case!

  7. such a great side by side comparison, I think in almost every case I loved the less expensive one just as much if not more.

  8. you pick such good side-by-side comparisons! gotta say that i am totally lusting for those flats now, though...my trusty black flats are near retirement so maybe i can rationalize getting a new perfect pair...maybe. :) do you have any other suggestions for simple and versatile black flats options?
