How much are stripes worth?

This last week I’ve had a lot of schoolwork to do, as you can probably tell because I am posting more than I usually do… I’m a procastinator at heart. Either way, I was browsing around on net-a-porter.com today and found these beauties.

I’m typically not a huge fan of leather; it folds awkwardly over the wrong areas and looks stiff and uncomfortable, but the dress and top here are exceptions. They look structured and sophisticated, and can be worn in a thousand different ways. The striped Balmain pants are super flattering and stylish, a great way to boost any outfit, although I certainly wouldn’t pay $2000 for them. I got mine at mango for 60$ and I can’t complain one bit because they look the same :) This brings me to thinking- are designer clothes really worth such exorbitant amounts?

Nergiz and I wore the same pants, but where she toned it down with a simple denim shirt and vans, I opted for something more formal. Next time, I’ll wear it with a black shirt and blazer and flats. There are endless possibilities for how to style them!
