If you can't afford to buy a whole new spring wardrobe, accessories can easily update your look. But do you have to spend a lot of money on shoes and handbags for just one season?

Cheryl Kramer, beauty editor at "Redbook" magazine, puts co-anchors Julie Chen and Hannah Storm to the test.

Play along on Wednesday on The Early Show and find out if you can tell which accessory is a discount and which is the designer item.

Here are some of the discount and designer items featured and the scores from our anchors:

Buckle shoes: The hardware trend is very hot for spring, says Kramer, and you will see a heavy-metal edge streaked through spring collections in zippers, buckles, chains and studs. The shoes are sporty, but still sexy.

1 Discount: Chinese Laundry buckle slide, $44.99

2 Designer: Coach "Natalie" buckle slide, $156.00; Telephone number: 1-866- 262-2440

What's the difference: Coach is a leather shoe with fabric at the buckle, while the Chinese Laundry shoe is all fabric (denim). The buckle is heavier and more substantial on the Coach shoe.
