I just wanted to apologize for not posting here lately. I've been so busy that I haven't posted on any of my blogs but I just recently started posting to the original Steal the Look (for Le$$) again. Since I currently don't have the time to post there and here, please feel free to bookmark that page for the time being.
Steal the Look (for Le$$)
Thanks for reading!
Jessica Szohr who plays Vanessa on Gossip Girl wore this casual, yet sexy outfit to the
premiere of True Blood. Her skirt is available to us all at Urban Outfitters for a mere $38.00.
You've got to love a celeb who isn't afraid to rock inexpensive fashion on the red carpet.
Here are some more pieces to get this look for just $101.29.
Boatneck Top - Alloy $22.50
A reader requested Nicky Hilton's look for less and I'm happy to report
that her dress is a Vena Cava for Gap at a wallet friendly $88.00. Here, I've
added a few more affordable pieces to get the entire look for $177.48.
Vena Cava Dress - Gap $88.00
If you're lucky and enjoying a sunny summer where you live, unlike those of us here
in the northeastern part of the U.S., you may be looking for your "perfect everyday
sandal". These Matt Bernson KM Gladiator T's would probably fit the bill but the
$170.00 price tag may deter you. I was browsing good old Steve Madden this
morning and came across a great look alike at a much more wallet friendly price.
Broose - Steve Madden $49.99
These Ladona shoes by L.A.M.B (shown, left) retail for $355.00. A reader requested
a look for less and here's what I was able to locate. They're not an exact match but
they're close and the price is right. I hope these work for you Claire!
These Burberry Studded Platform Sandals (shown, top left and on Ashlee Simpson) are
from a couple of seasons ago and retailed for $970.00. A few months ago, I purchased
a pair of sandals from Spring and had no idea they were a knockoff but sure enough,
they're identical... and only a fraction of the cost.
Molden Platform Sandal - Spring Shoes $59.99
These Christian Louboutin Jefferson Platform Sandals (left) retail for $1,195.00 but
are currently on sale for $719.00 at Barney's. With today's economy, that's still not
an option for me. If you feel the same, check out these knockoffs from Charlotte Russe!
Topsider Stilettos - Charlotte Russe $26.99
I absolutely love this Elizabeth & James Lorelei Top (left) but $268.00 is out
of my reach for a tank at the moment. I was at Forever 21 on Friday shopping
for some things for my weekend getaway and found this amazing look alike.
It's only available in white, the E&J comes in white, black and violet, but I have
no problem with that since I saved $252.00. It looks great on!
Diane Kruger looked oh so chic arriving at the Cannes Film Festival a few days
ago. You can steal her entire look, including the actual top Diane is wearing,
for less than $200.00.
Splendid Boho Floral Tunic - Revolve $98.00
This Rachel Pally tank (left) retails for $176.00 at ShopBop and will be great over
skinny jeans this spring and summer but why spend more when you can steal this
look for a fraction of the cost of the original?
