splurge v. save

Spending money wisely is something I do in phases. 
There are weeks that go by when I am really responsible; 
I abstain from shopping and really only buy the necessities 
(which for me might not be necessities, unless you're counting lattes). 
But the discipline wears off and before you know it, 
I have a wish list the size of Texas going 
and I really feel the need to treat myself to a little splurge.
Just in time for swimsuit season, 
I was really excited because I found a bikini I loooooved from Victoria's Secret. 
I never had a bikini from there, and I know they are reallyreally  low cut and tight, 
but I wanted to try it out. 
The separate prices, though, for each - at around $35 - hurt. 
I can't bring myself to spend around $70 on a simple bikini I will wear
 only a few times this summer (realistically). 
So I scouted an even better by at an unlikely place, Kohl's! 
I can't say it is my favorite store, but I loved the Crochet Bandeau Bikini by Candie's so much, 
even better than the VS choice. 
It fits wonderfully and I have worn it to the beach already! 
It cost a total of about $30, because Kohl's has really great sales! 
So for both pieces, it ended up being cheaper than just top of the VS lace bikini. Score!

Splurge: Victoria's Secret Lace Bikini
Save: Candie's Crochet Bandeau Bikini from Kohl's
