When I go shopping, I take on one of two personalities; the incredibly stingy shopper who won't spend more than $10 on any one item or the shopaholic who buys anything and everything in sight, regardless of the cost. More often than not, I'm the former. Instead of breaking the bank on costly designer duds, I find alternatives that have what I love about [insert designer item here] with a much friendlier price tag.
This "Deal or No Deal" post is a little different than the rest because 1) I actually bought the "designer duds" that doesn't have the friendly price tag and 2) the "designer duds" in question were actually put on my Rich Girl Wishlist last year so if I'm being truly honest I've always intended to buy them. The subject of today's Deal or No Deal is Pearls and Pastries's sequin hangers. At $16 a piece I wouldn't blame you if you called me crazy for buying one or two (... I actually bought eight *cringe* but don't be judgmental just yet). That's why I DIY'd over a dozen sequin hangers with elastic sequin ribbon I bought at Wally World and a bunch of hangers I found laying around my house. It costs approximately $3 a hanger (including the sequins, glue, and hanger if you have to buy one) and about 5 minutes of work for each hanger to be made. Lucky for me, with the winter sale Pearls and Pastries had in December, I grabbed 8 hangers that were already on sale for an addition 40% off which brought them down two $4.80 a piece. Not bad, huh?
