|Left: Helmut Lang Right: Forever 21|
Although my style has evolved and changed over the years, one thing that has remained constant, is my love for the basics. I'm all about classic pieces that are versatile, comfortable and chic. Especially since the majority of my days are spent chasing after my 1 year old daughter. I've been craving a drapey cardigan/jacket that I can easily throw over a tank or a tee. In my search, I came across this one by Helmut Lang and instantly fell in love. The cut, the length, the zipper detail...it's just about perfect. Except for its $380 price tag. While I do invest in shoes and certain pieces of clothing, I simply can't justify paying close to $400 for a lightweight jacket that's not even leather. Enter this version by Forever 21. Pretty darn close and it's only $30 bucks!
