Although I've always enjoyed shopping (aside from, of course, the whole trying things on part), there's always been an element of difficulty in the process that makes me not want to buy the very first thing that catches my eye. I can't stop thinking, there is always another option. In my mind, is the other option is going to be different, but at a better price point? Maybe. A more interesting fabric or silhouette? It's a possibility. So I hold off on buying that very first thing because there's always going to be something else.
I recently developed a sudden desire to buy a pair of leopard print, slip-on sneakers. Specific, I know. I had been seeing them on my favorite bloggers and some of my most fashionable friends and I thought, "A flat shoe that is durable and also sassy? Don't mind if I do." As I searched the wide, scary void that is the Internet for the shoes I was surprised to find that...wait, there were other options but...they weren't different. Actually, they were exactly the same...and all at different prices. So which pair do I choose? Does expensive equal better? Will the cheaper one look noticeably...well...cheaper? Decisions, decisions.
From my initial searching for those leopard print sneakers came the realization that any trendy piece you may be looking for is most likely available everywhere, but never for the same price. Here are 13 identical items you can buy at three different price points, just in case you love making decisions harder.
