It's amazing to see how much fashion repeats itself in different stores, it's like having constant Déjà Vu....
When shopping with clients I notice very similar styles in most stores. I decided to recreate the same look and compare prices. However not all clothing is created equally. I always take quality and fit into consideration.
The first look is from Kmart and the second is Jeanswest.
Kmart Blush Flute Top VS. Jeanwest Rose frill sleeve top
The kmart top was a knit type fabric and fit well however the fabric seemed to be poor quality. The Jeanswest was a T-shirt material, it fit well but I seemed to be in-between sizes. The 'XS' was quite firm, but the 'S' was too loose. Overall, I think the Jeanswest top was better quality.
Kmart Feather touch black wash jeans VS. Jeanswest Aura curve high waisted skinny jeans
I was very impressed by the Kmart jeans, they fit well and were super comfy. The Jeanswest ones were also a fit great and were great quality. I would love to find out which ones last longer with wear and tear... For $20 the Kmart jeans are a great buy.
Kmart Blush Necklace VS. Jeanswest Lola Necklace
The rose gold necklaces were both pretty, I did love the Jeanswest one as the beads seemed more stylish and better quality, but for $6 compared to $35 the Kmart necklace wins.
When looking for clothing if you're on a budget or love a bargain it definitely pays to shop around!
