Wallet-Friendly-High-Style-DiCorcia-Interior-DesignFrom interiors to fashion – mixing a few luxurious “investment” items with more affordable options strikes a nice balance in a room and an ensemble. Nothing thrills me more than to accessorize a custom sofa with a set of pillows from Ikea, or pair my Miu Miu sandals with a skirt from Forever 21. These are the items that I’ve recently been shopping with high style and great price tags.

On one of my “in-and-out” runs to target for laundry detergent I emerged two hours later with a full cart, including two of these umbrellas (on sale for $79 in stores). In addition to being obsessed with the ikat print, the wooden pole makes them look high-end. The Bungalow backyard plans will have to be adjusted a bit, but so worth it! I also found this Mara Hoffman-esque beach bag ($34.99) and gorgeous light blue shagreen shade ($19.99) for a steel!

I learned about this children’s dress (on sale for $8 in stores) through The Glitter Guide and went to check it out this weekend. The XL fit me perfectly and will make for a great coverup or throw-on dress this summer. I also picked up this tunic ($26.94), which looks very similar to a much more expensive version. Now all I need is for the weather to warm up!  *Save an additional 20% with code ONSAVE20 through 5/6!

This pillow ($10) looks very Madeline Weinrib-ish, sans the three digit price tag, and my local Ikea finally has them back in stock! I picked up a few for a client project along with this Saarinen inspired tulip table ($199) and a box of these taper candles ($3.99). I am not usually a fan of colored wax but made an exception when I saw this perfect shade of turquoise – they look great in brass holders!

These festive foil dot napkins ($4.95) have been on my wish list for some time and when I found them majorly marked-down I couldn’t resist! I’ve blogged about these planters ($10) before and sill can’t get over what a great deal they are – I picked up my third one this weekend!

I learned about this Forever 21 skirt ($22.80) through Chassity’s blog and went on the hunt to track it down – girl has a great eye, I’m very pleased with my purchase! I also picked up this neon nail polish ($2.80) which has actually held up pretty well. It may not be everyone’s cup of tea but it brightens up my day!

How was your weekend? Found any great deals lately? Would love to hear about them!!!
