Splurge vs. Steal

So I saw this on HauteLook today and I knew it reminded me of something I saw a few days ago / recommended on my ThisNext account.

In Full Bloom necklace at ModCloth.
Price: $28.

A symmetrically arranged v-neck shaped, statement-making piece.

An adjustable chain, ivory, satin-like petals, and smooth, matte-finish buttons in the center of each bud adorn this accessory to create the look of freshly picked fashion.

I actually prefer the "splurge" because the fabric texture as well as the details (which are different between both the pieces) is much lovelier. The flowers on the "splurge" look delicate like actual flowers, whereas the "steal" looks more like paper flowers and very rough in comparison to the "splurge". Also, the ribbon on the "splurge" makes the floral necklace much softer than the chain associated with the "steal". Although both are definitely great in their own way and depending on how you wear this bold and feminine essential! x.
