Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and no one wants to break the bank with an outfit they might only wear a handful of times. In my latest Austin Woman Magazine column I focused on 2 identical looks, one expensive and one affordable for those who like a real steal! These Splurge or Steals have been my favorite out of all of the Ask Ashley’s I have written for this magazine over the past 4 years. I literally take so much pride in finding completely identical looks; one being on the higher end and one lower. I want readers to look at the side-by-sides and not even be able to tell the difference!
If you have missed some of my other Splurge or Steal articles over the past few years here are a few of my all time favorites –
Little Black Dress (this is THE BEST!)
Ok, back to Valentine’s outfits! I recently did a Valentine’s What to Wear post if you’re still in the market for something to wear for date night or Galentine’s with the girls. Even if you’re not a huge fan of Valentine’s Day, like me, or aren’t planning anything big you can still dress up for a night in!
