Blogs make me want

Nude patent heels Sam Edelman - Brown Madison tote bag Coach

Blogs make me want things, for example it made me want this belt , even though every other blogger has it. I wonder how many of them Gucci produced...
Anyways, I wanted it, but was not willing to drop that amount of cash, which happens to be more than the minimum monthly salary where I live. 
So, I went for the next best thing I could find, which was this gorgeous gold buckle vintage Celine Paris belt: makes a statement, does not make me a serial wearer and it was affordable. Can you guess how much  I paid for it ?

$5.00!! That's my guess. :) I rarely want what other bloggers have - it's so easy to find similar items. I bet you found your belt cheap, and I bet it's made in Italy or France? That Gucci one is probably made in China.

I love the details. Very beautiful.

The title of your post is so, so true Lorena!!!
But the funny thing is you can get similar items for so much less most of the time. I'm guessing you got this for under $10?

Can totally relate to this I even make myself want things when I'm writing some posts! haha. This outfit is gorgeous! I really love the belt and I think it's a true gem. I am curious to find out the price now you asked us. I would say this belt was around £80?

Being a beautiful vintage piece I'm guessing it was a lucky bargain find! :) I rarely have that much luck, haha.

I find there are a few bloggers I need to read carefully as I almost always want what they are wearing - it's crazy how often I used to be buying things because of blogs. Before blogs I used to buy things I saw in magazines, I think I'm just a marketer's ideal customer, haha!
