Every year I make a wishlist and then use that list as my shopping wishlist for fall. Most years I go for the saves, but this year I have saved up some of my RewardStyle money, so I’m hoping to do a little shopping in the sale. I’ve gone through some of my favorite items in the N-sale and found similar affordable options at other stores I shop at. This way you can pick out what N-sale items you feel are worth a splurge and what items you would rather save on.

Spanx Faux Leather Leggings $64.90 vs. Aerie Crackle Leggings $27.47
I went with the save last year and bought a pair of Aeries Crackel leggings. They were a great affordable option to the Spanx leggings. They fit true to size and are slimming and supportive. The only negative that I found was that the shiny finish seemed to fade after too many washes. This year I think I may splurge for the Spanx.
Treasure & Bond Cotton Midi Dress $38.90 vs. Amazon Crewneck Midi Dress $25.99
This dress is high on my wishlist in the Nordstrom Sale, but I’ve also been eyeing this Amazon dress all summer. I ended up going with the Amazon dress for $13 less. I will let you know what I think when it comes in next week!!
Daydreamer Rolling Stone Graphic Tee $44.90 vs. Target Rolling Stone Graphic Tee $12.99
This is a no-brainer for me. I would never spend $45 on a t-shirt. The Target T-shirt is the one I would go wit. I am not a huge fan of graphic tees, but I do like the colors in this one and I could get used to wearing a Rolling Stones shirt.
Madewell Kent Cardigan Sweater $58.90 vs. Amazon Open front Cardigan $17.99
This Madewell cardigan in the Heather Eggplant seems to be on everyone’s wishlist. I found this pink cardigan on Amazon that is the same style but much more affordable. I will let you know how I like it when it comes in!
Zella Snow Wash Rib Bike Shorts $35.90 vs. Amazon Tummy Control Biker Shorts $17.50
I’ve heard amazing reviews of all Zella leggings. so I know that these bike shorts are pretty great. However, I own these Amazon tummy control bike shorts and I love them! They are so good and for the price difference, you really can’t go wrong!
Spanx Suit Yourself V-Neck Tank Body Suit $44.90 vs. Express Contour Double Layer V-Neck Body Suit $25.50
Barcha Initial Pendant Necklace $29.90 vs. Amazon Gold Initial Necklace $6.99
This cute initial pendant caught my eye in the sale. I love a good monogram necklace! This one is a tough one for me. At first, I felt that the splurge on this one would be a better option because I was afraid that the Amazon necklace wouldn’t last as long, but after talking to a few people who have the Amazon dupe I hear it’s actually good quality. So I would save on this!
Moonlight Short Pajamas $29.90 vs. Target Pajama Set $21.99
I’m going to go with the splurge on this one because I don’t really feel like it’s much of a splurge. After looking around at the prices of pajama sets, $30 actually seems very reasonable and that’s why this set is on my wishlist.
