I talk all the time about how I splurge on some items and save on others just like all of you do. But I realized the other day while talking to a friend at the playground that everyone's splurge items aren't the same. What I want to spend more on might be an item you'd rather spend less. Or maybe what I think of as a splurge is more like your never gonna happen. Jeans have always been something I'm willing to pay a lot more for in order to guarantee a good fit. Plus, jeans are pretty much the basis of my daily uniform so I justify the cost with a lot of wear. But what about those of you who want a good fit but $190 just isn't in your budget for jeans no matter what? I wanted to give you a good alternative so I decided to investigate some good denim under $100 in order to find a perfect look for less.
I decided to find an exact replica of my long-time favorite skinny jeans but in a lower price point. I did some online searches and narrowed it down to a few brands I wanted to try on in person. Nordstrom has the biggest selection in all price points so I just clicked on the under $100 section to start browsing. I made sure I wasn't choosing anything that was only in that price point when on sale.
I found the perfect match in the same brand and style as the colored cords I fell in love with a few weeks ago, KUT from the Cloth, Diana (still on sale for $33, and yes I sized down like the reviews)! These jeans were literally an exact version of my all time favorites and priced at just under a hundred dollars. A pretty awesome alternative for those looking to keep a lower price point without sacrificing style.
I'm wearing the KUT from the Kloth "Diana" (found here). As usual from the Nordstrom site, they look significantly better in person. I also sized down like other reviewers said. Cheaper and I can wear a smaller size. That's just fun. I've also rounded up of some of my top picks of great denim under $100 below.
*Why are nude D'orsay pumps so hard to find in a normal price range? These are Sam Edelman like the first pair I linked above. My back up seems to be missing the nude color now as well but hopefully that will reappear soon. Seriously, they are my major go-to staple and every woman should be able to own a pair for under $300. I will continue my hunt for you! This pair and this pair both look like they are very close and in stock!
