I have been a big fan of Polyvore for years and use their brilliant software to make all of my collages. Over the past few months I have also fallen in love with their Editorial staff and the high vs low deals they find. For fashion they call it Lust / Must and in home decor they call it Real / Deal.
My favorite part about their high vs. low fashion comps is that they choose different brands for each category, every time. It is easy to make these collages juxtapositions with the most expensive designers at Bergdorf and then automatically compare them to the $20 version at Forver21 but these look-a-likes are incredibly accurate and varied. That being said, I do consider many of the price tags on the “must” items at the top of my budget, I do not think they are unobtainable. These are some of my favorite finds:
And while none of these home decor pieces would fit in my new apartment, nor are they quite my style, I appreciate the deals they have found:
You can find all of these collages on their profile page.
Which high vs low is your favorite?
