The Look For Less: Kristen Stewart’s Mixed Pattern Look

If you’re hesitant to mix different patterns with one look, take a cue from this fashion-forward ensemble and start by keeping everything monochromatic.  Worn by Kristen Stewart in her photoshoot for Jalouse Magazine to promote the upcoming adaptation of On The Road, this outfit is Beetlejuice-punk mixed with high street brands. You can recreate it, however, with just $70 and one trip to trusty Forever 21.

Try the bow back dotted dress ($11.50) for matching polka dots plus a sexy surprise cut-out in the back:

Power clash with a striped jacket ($22.80) that will make the dress more modern:

Pair with shoes that look a little bit menswear inspired ($29.80), and you’re almost there!

Finish off this look with a pair of retro sunnies ($5.80) and some bedhead and you’ve officially got the look!

The Look For Less: Hot Heels

They stay that imitation is the best form of flattery. Top designers might not be thrilled to know that you can get their looks for less. But when you can find quality look-alikes for a fraction of the designer price, it’s undeniably awesome.

Enter Jessica Simpson.

Christian Louboutin’s “Staratata” heels cost about $995, which as we all know would be over a thousand dollars with tax. They’re undeniably beautiful! But if you want to drop a digit from the price, try Jessica Simpson’s “Evangela” heels, $98. This imitation has been all over the blogosphere lately, so I kept looking, and found more examples of style steals.

Report Signature makes a beautiful stripy black heel called the Williston. It’s priced at $225, which is a far cry better than the Louboutin prices. But if you’re looking for a better bargain, Jessica Simpson makes a similar version, called the “Malika,” for the same lower price of $98.

Pink and black are beautiful together, so it’s no wonder that multiple upscale brands are combining them in ballet flats. The Marc by Marc Jacobs Soft Ballerina Flats retail for $195, which is a lot of money for a slip-on shoe. But you can get a near-identical look with the Jessica Simpson Madisen for just $69.

Morale of the story: Jessica Simpson rocks!  Also, it’s nice to know that anyone can get a high-end look without a huge budget.

I came across this photo on pinterest, and I just love how funky and feminine her outfit is!  I mean, that sweater… so yummy.

Ecote Cable Stitch Tunic, on sale for $49

Oasis Textured Boyfriend Cardigan, $99.84

Braided Purl Knit Sweater, just $24.80!

Decisions, decisions…

Which of these sweaters do you like best?  Are you loving the chunky sweater look as much as I am, or are you not so into it?  Are you already rocking this look?  Share your thoughts in the comments!

Get The Look: A Maxi-Dress For Spring!

I’ve been a big fan of maxi dresses for years, so when I came across this laid-back look, I just had to share!

{via}

It’s just so effortless and put together.  (I’m not hating those bangs, either!)

Like this look as much as I do?  Get the same feel with the pieces below:

1) Maxi-mum Impact Dress, $87.99

2) Festival Fringe Bag, $62.76

3) Braided Chain Belt, $6.80

4) Cracked Pebble Ring, $3.80

5) Born Jewell Wedge, $140.00

It’s worth noting: I would definitely classify this look as “girl pretty” and not “guy pretty”.  (Travis thought I was joking when I showed him the inspiration photo.)  So, if you’re into this look, maybe wear it to a lunch with your friends and not a hot date…

Are you a fan of the maxi dress as much as I am?  Have you rocked this look, or are you still on the fence?  Do you dress differently for your friends than you do for your significant other?  Tell me about it in the comments!
