Splurge vs. Save: Distressed Denim

 I have always wanted to do a splurge vs. save post, and I took Boston Belle out of its mini-hiatus to do my first one because I thought these were too good not to share! I have been hunting for a good pair of distressed jeans for awhile now, and was struggling to find a pair that wasn't overly destroyed, but wasn't just two knee slits either, and most importantly, affordable. Since buying my horse, Enzo, my non-equestrian shopping has been limited. As much as I loved some of the distressed denim that I saw on bloggers, I couldn't justify spending $150+ on one pair of jeans (and I could just hear my grandmother now: "you paid how much to have holes put in your pants??"). So I was thrilled to finally find not only a medium-wash pair, but a black pair as well... on sale, for $34!

Distressed black skinny jeans:
Splurge: Paige | Save: Rock & Republic (runs true to size)

Distressed skinny jeans:
Splurge: AG | Save: LC Lauren Conrad (runs one size large)

I had popped into Kohl's to check out Lauren Conrad's newest collection, and on a whim grabbed these two pairs to try on. I'm so glad I did! It's hard to find jeans that fit me, but these were a good length, had the right balance of stretch to structure, and didn't gape at the waist while fitting my thighs. The store didn't have my sizes so I had to order them online, but I'm excited to get and style them! 

Have you found any good steals lately? :)
