Lust vs. Must

Today I have a fashionable, beauty savvy blogger filling in for me (see previous post on why I'm not on my blogging game right now) - Amanda of A Goode Hue! Lucky for me, Amanda lives in my hometown so I get to brag that I know her IRL. Check out her post below and stop by her fun blog!

Hi guys! I am thrilled that Leeann reached out to have me guest post this week, I met Leeann last year at a blogger meetup—my very first—and she quickly became one of my blogging buddies. Cool fact, she is originally from the city that I live in now and she even went to the same high school that my boyfriend attended. Small world, right?

Lust vs. Must - A Goode Hue

This week I am highlighting a few of my fall must-haves for the penny pincher. I am a total window shopper and am always finding items that I love, but the price tag? Not so much! This girl is on a budget and am on the hunt for the latest and greatest beauty and fashion finds. Here is what’s on my Lust vs. Must list this week:

Camel Cardigan: I have been on the hunt for a long cardigan in a rich camel shade but as soft as it may be, the J.Crew cashmere cardigan is just way out of budget. Luckily this knit H&M cardigan is an inexpensive alternative.

Nude Blush: Soft and sheer pink blushes top my favorite makeup looks for fall and the shade of this rose Dior Nude Shimmer Instant Illuminating Powder is absolutely gorgeous, but $56 for a blush is just not in my budget. Luckily, this pretty Physicians Formula Nude Wear Blush is.

Oxblood Handbag: Oxblood remains as one of my top color picks for fall and this season I am drooling over the Michael Kors 'Medium Sutton' Saffiano Leather Tote. At that price I won’t be toting it around anytime soon, but you just might catch me with the ModCloth Office to Outing bag.

What have you been lusting after this fall?

I am allergic to cashmere, so luckily...I never have to worry about lusting after it! I am obsessed with MK though....and that purse has been on my radar for awhile as well.

Love the purse and the camel colored cardigan! Looks so cozy!

Oh, what a great display of chic on the cheap! Love both of those handbags...that color is my absolute fave for this season. And actually, every season in a different hues ;)

I didn't know Modcloth had bags. I need to get with it.

I love these posts!!

Kerry @ Till Then Smile Often said...

H&M has such great items. Modcloth sells bags?

love the more affordable pieces, great picks!

Oh I am so into finding the same items or look-alike items that cost way less. Why spend a fortune on a name brand when you can get similar items at much less? Plus, I learned that more expensive doesn't necessary mean better quality.

So lusting over a new bag...still looking for one...this may take forever.

Ooh, I love that bag!
