Trending Topics - Splurge or Save?

Recently I have noticed the abundance of Leather garments on Fashion blogs and the amount of hype around the new Dark Knight film on Twitter.... so I thought I would do a little post with a difference and combine the two; creating wearable ensembles to display you inner nerd whilst also staying classy (San Diego) 

The first little look I've put together comes in at a rather hefty price tag, I know I'm all budget budget budget but that doesn't mean I can't keep my keen eye on some things I will never be able to afford for inspiration!  
I absolutely love the look of those shorts although I very much doubt I would ever be able to pull them off! One can but dream though eh! You can find all of the above items on 
The second look I've put together is a lot more purse friendly just in case you want to look super cool and can't afford the price tags above. (If you can afford them by the way. I ENVY YOU!)
This second collection is a little more purse friendly, but despite that, I always find it is worth paying that bit more for a good quality jacket! Jackets and shoes are the area where I am willing to splash out a little bit more as they are more permanent garments.
These are all from the New Look website. I do think the above ensemble looks slightly more classy than the below one, maybe more suitable for a day in the office and the bottom one for shopping in town. Oh, it's a tricky one! Which look do you prefer? Are you like me when it comes to shopping; being more frivolous for certain types of garments and bargain hunting when it comes to others?
