Style Inspired: Lily Aldridge’s Chic Outfit on Vogue Mexico

Aug
21

I saw Lily Aldridge’s Vogue Mexico cover from July and I’m officially obsessed with this look–simple yet chic!  I can already see myself wearing this outift out and about, but I don’t have the budget to splurge and buy the exact look.  I looked for dupes for this look and if you would to recreate this look, see what I found below!!  Trust me, you won’t be disappointed 🙂

BUT, if you want this look on the budget, check out what I found:

Similar top:  the Brandy Melville Anastasia Halter ($12).  At such a good price, this halter is sooo worth it!  It can be purchased here.

Similar Trousers: I found two choices, two similar pants but in different price ranges. The first is the pricier one that looks close to the ones Lily is wearing on the cover.

Option 1: Topshop Premium Bonded Leg Trousers ($120).  The website says their pink but to me, they look more blush colored, and I think it would look pretty darn good a lot of different ways.  Check out the Topshop trousers here.

Jessica Alba: Best Fashion Moments From This Week

Aug
14

If you haven’t guessed, Jessica Alba is someone I really admire.  I’ve followed her career for a while and I just think she is a really good example of the kind of person I want to be.  She is a confident, strong, successful woman–with a great fashion sense.  I fell in love with these two outfits she wore this week–I think they are so timeless and chic.  I also like the fact that while the hemline is long, it’s still youthful and sexy.

While I love both, if I had to choose, I think I would go for the two piece, but only because I love the floral detailing on the top and heels.  If you had to choose, which look is your favorite, the pink dress or the black and orange two piece?  Let me know 🙂

Style Inspired: Selena Gomez’ Date Night Look

Aug
05

Selena Gomez has great style and she wore this cream sleeveless crop top paired with cream loose pants that was gorgeous!  It can be a great date night look or even a casual day out.  I love how she edged the look with black heels, a black purse, and her black bra.  I like to think of it as a polished up bad girl! 🙂

Shay Mitchell’s Stylish Hawaiian Vacation: Three Looks

Jul

Unless you’re living under a rock, Pretty Little Liars is one of the biggest shows on TV today.  Two of the stars from the show, Shay Mitchell and Ashley Benson spent their Fourth of July holiday in Maui, Hawaii, rocking some of the cutest summer looks.  If you are in an outfit rut, check out some of the looks Shay rocked during her beach getaway.

I think one of my favorite looks for this summer is a simple body suit paired with jean shorts.  American Apparel has great bodysuits, check out this simple black one for $40.  I found some similar shorts from Urban Outfitters that are actually on sale fo $29.

I love this next outfit Shay wore–it’s from Missguided and it’s adorable!!  I love the pineapple print–perfect for summer in every sense.  I found the exact top and bottoms, so check out the links if you want to purchase.

kim-kardashian-bonaroo-festival-tlrI caught a glance of Kim Kardashian’s outfit at Bonnaroo last weekend and completely fell in love with the look!  Although it definitely sexy and risque, I think the way Kim styled it keeps the look classy.  While this look may not be for everyone, it’s this week’s style inspired look.
