Splurge or Save: Balmain Vs Topshop

Ok, so I think everyone knows that distressed, bleached jeans are the way to go for Spring/Summer this year, with absolutely tonnes of ripped, painted, dip-dyed, bleached... the list goes on - variants of jeans appearing on the catwalks this year. 

Here's two options on getting the look - with only one major difference - price.

Balmain Distressed Cropped Jeans - €972.00 (net-a-porter.com)
Ok, I do love a bit of Balmain and these jeans are lovely, but I don't really like cropped jeans, they're quite awkward to team with the right shoes. I love the distressed patches on these and the small bits of bleaching. I don't think I'd splurge for this pair though.

Topshop Bleach and Ripped Jeans - £40.00 (topshop.com)
I love topshop jeans and this pair are almost as good as the Balmain version, but considering their price they're my winners. Topshop do a great line of skinny jeans - "Jamie" which have a variety of lengths, which is why I always end up buying them. I'm only 5'5 and I hate when my skinnies bunch up at the end. Thank god for Topshop jeans.
