Splurge vs. Steal: Leather Trimmed Trench

When I spotted Emma Stone in this gorgeous leather trimmed Burberry trench coat, I fell in love. It's classic, chic and timeless but the leather details make it edgy and unique and perfect for fall. I immediately started searching for a more budget friendly option, and luckily I found a great one!

The splurge from Burberry will set you back about $1600...yikes!! Luckily, Kensie offers a similar, shorter option with faux leather trim for just $148 which is much easier on the wallet. I saw it in Lucky magazine last month and had to find it online! Of course we all want to wear the Burberry trench, but would you wear the less expensive one from Kensie?

  4. YES! I would totally wear the Kensie trench. :) Of course the Burberry one is totally lovely but if I can get a fraction of a price on still a pretty piece, why not??

  12. I would definitely wear the cheaper one! I mean, it looks almost exactly like the designer brand one anyway. ;)
