Luxe for Less – Burberry Poncho

They say good things come to those who wait, and lemme tell ya – I’ve been waiting for this one!  I first saw this poncho on Olivia Palermo last year and fell in love.  IN LOVE.

I coveted the poncho, but at a steep $1395 + $300 for monogramming, the poncho remained in my dreams alone.  That is, until now.  I was perusing the Forever 21 website as per usual (doesn’t everyone do this on a weekly basis??!) and came across this poncho!

Uncanny resemblance, right?!  Priced at $29.90, it is about 98% cheaper than the original.  You’re welcome. 😉

So, I remembered that my local mall has a monogramming kiosk (Time Machine Hoover), so I ran there the day after it arrived in the mail.  $12 and a day later, I had a monogrammed poncho!!

So there you have it!  $42 vs $1695.  It was a no-brainer for me!!  Happy shopping, friends!!!

Until next time! Stay ‘Chic’!
