Splurge or Save: Triple Strap Sandals

1 comment
If you love the look of these sexy, strappy Topshop heels, check out Forever 21's version - super similar, and a third of the price! And, if you just have to have a pair in every color, you could grab them in black, taupe and plum for just around the same price as one pair of the Topshops.

I recently came across Perks of Aurora's Etsy shop, which is full of pop culture mugs and cards that highlight everything from Jessie Spano's caffeine pill breakdown on Saved By The Bell, to the airplane scene on Bridesmaids, to everyone's favorite city correspondent, Stefon. I picked nine of my favorites to feature, but there are tons of hilarious mugs that would make great gag gifts!

2. Clueless
3. Project Runway
4. Arrested Development
5. Romy & Michele's High School Reunion
6. The Big Bang Theory
7. Mean Girls
