Filament Chandelier: Hi vs. Lo

I am in love with filament light bulbs lately! We've made plans to use some in our den.

When I saw this iron chandelier from Pottery Barn, I was smitten. But of course the price tag was too astonishing.


Pottery Barn's Jasper Filament Bulb Chandelier $449

Overstock just started offering this similar design for a more affordable price.

Overstock's Shea 9-Light Chandelier $184.99

Suzani/Ikat Dining Chairs

 I spotted these Suzani chairs in the new Pottery Barn catalog and fell in love. I love the nailheads outlining the chair, but I'm not a huge fan of the curvy legs...OR the price. 

 Pottery Barn - Calais Chair in Neutral Suzani ($399)

 Above you can see a better layout of the Suzani print.

After a quick search, I came across a similar chair at a much better price.

World Market - Amber Ikat Walter Chair ($149.99)

At this price you could buy two chairs for the price of one Pottery Barn chair. 
Plus, I like the legs on this chair much more.

Summer Sandals: Hi and Lo

I've been searching for some summer sandals and fell in love with a few that cut a hole in my budget, so I went searching further to find similar sandals with a lower price.





Low: Shiekh Haidi Sandals ($22.99)




High: Dolce Vita Bagley Blue ($169.00)
Low: Bakers Happy Feet ($59.99)


What about you? Have you spotted any great summer look-a-like sandals for a deal?

Substitute: J.Crew Luxe Baseball Tee

I dream of wearing this shirt on the weekends:




Happily, it has come down in price - now $52. 

But, I of course, wanted to see what substitutes were available.

Too expensive still...

Maybe too worn looking....
 Forever21: Burnout Sweatshirt ($15.80)

The two shirts I found best resembling the J.Crew tops:


 Eddie Bauer: French Terry 3/4 Sleeve Sweatshirt ($39.50)

Delia's: Lace Back Sweatshirt ($39.50)

I could purchase either of these two, but it might be worth it to just purchase the original shirt from J.Crew - its too cute and comfy looking!

Fab Find: Knot Necklace

I spotted this knotted necklace on Jcrew recently and fell in love, but I couldn't imagine paying for it.



I did a little searching and found similar knotted necklaces for too much $$$.



Burberry: Knotted Chain Necklace ($225 on sale)

But then I came across a very stylish version for a great price:

Charlotte Russe: All Knotted Up Chain Necklace ($12.50)
