Unfortunately, sometimes I fall in love with things that are way out of my budget (sometimes...more like always). So when I find an item that I think needs to be in my closet, I go hunting for a similar-looking item in a more affordable price that fits my budget. These are some of this season's hottest trends that you could either "splurge" on, or grab for less (hence, the term "fashion loot"). It goes to show that you really don't have to spend a fortune to still be on-trend and fabulous; all you have to do is a little research! (Luckily, I did it for you! You're Welcome.) Happy Wednesday and Happy Shopping!
