desire + acquire
one, two, three, four {similar here &here}, five & six
Hello & welcome to desire + acquire. 

In this series I will be taking outfit inspirations, mostly street style & looks I've pinned to my "what to wear" board and recreating them with affordable and accessible options. Now the purpose of this segment is not to see how low we can go on price. It's about balancing staple & foundation pieces with trendy or season specific items.

More likely than not, these "acquisition" pieces will be significantly less expensive than their "desirable" counterparts. This is simply the result of people spending too much money instead of hunting for cheaper {but still chic} alternatives. 

To be perfectly honest, there really isn't any piece in today's post that I wouldn't recommend investing in. If you really love the anorak, there are heavier weight options {for example} that you should consider purchasing. Alternatively, if you like it's something you will only wear a few times, definitely go with the more frugal choice. Same things goes for the other pieces - I absolutely believe that skinny black pants, a white blouse or a cute & dressy{ish} sweatshirt are things that should always be in your closet. Some may think that leopard shoes are not what you would call an "investment" piece, but I disagree. These are wedges so much more comfortable {aka versatile} then heels and if paired just right the leopard print can actually be styled as a neutral.

Keep checking back {and on my pinterest boards} as this series will be a regular here at the chic curator.  If you have a street or celeb style look you think would be great for this segment, let me know & I'll give it a shot.
