Style Battle

Today we want to try a new feature here on InTheirCloset: »Splurge or Save?«. While doing our research for the Real vs. Steal posts, we often stumble upon very similar items that have varying price points, but are too close together by price to really fit into the Real vs. Steal section, so that’s why we came up with the »Splurge or Save?« category, where you can decide by poll whether you’d rather splurge or save on a certain item. And the first edition of »Splurge or Save?« starts off with pointy nude pumps and tan buckle sandals. The possible savings here add up to $175 for the nude pumps and $87 for the tan buckle sandals. What do you think? Which items would you save on and where would you go all out and rather splurge instead? Tell us in the comments!

If I had to describe my person fashion style in three words, “feminine” would definitely be among it. That’s probably one of the reason why I’ve never been particularly fond of the classic combat boot à la Doc Martens. However, lately I have discovered so many beautiful combat boot styles with feminine details such as velvet uppers, floral prints or lovely pastel colorways that it made me rethink my stance on combat boots being too bulky and masculine (for me). What do you think? Can combat boots be feminine or not? And if so, which of the three versions below is your favorite? The Velvet, floral print or pink one? Take the poll down below and let us know.

We’re slowly approaching the end of September and I think most of us are ready to move on to fall fashion by now. And what better way to start off planning our fall wardrobe than with a pair of slouchy suede peep-toe booties? I’ve been in love with these lovely suede booties ever since I first saw the Chinese Laundry pair a few months ago. This bootie is so chic and versatile and would work with dresses, skirts, jeans, heavy knits, you name it. Then, a few days ago, I discovered an almost identical pair at Nine West. Same design, same materials, same color and a very similar price tag. So I thought these two would make good candidates for a new style battle edition. Which of the booties is your personal favorite? Chinese Laundry’s “Laurel” or Nine West’s “Kacey”? Take the poll below and let us know.

Style Battle – The Striped Dress

by Irina on February 7, 2013

I have a *big* (or should we rather say *unhealthy*) crush on stripes. Don’t know how many times I’ve already mentioned that on this blog already. And even though I have a gazillion striped items in my wardrobe, I’m still craving more. Today I stumbled upon two absolutely beautiful striped mini dresses that are quite similar in style, shape and price. I’ve been trying to evaluate which one I like more for hours now, but came to the conclusion that I simply can’t do it on my own. That’s why I need you to help me make up my mind! I think I prefer the silhouette and stripe pattern of the BB Dakota frock, but the red piping on the Aryn K. dress is so cute and charming! See, I just can’t make up my mind about these two lovely dresses! Vote on your stripey favorite in the poll down below.
