Three Looks for Less

Left look // Right look


Sole Society Anneke pump ($60) // Valentino rockstud pumps ($1,075)
ASOS leopard clutch ($34) // Clare Vivier leopard foldover clutch ($220)

I thought it would be fun to put together a few designer looks and then see if I could re-create them with less expensive items… and I'm amazed at some of the deals that are out there! For instance, I've been crushing on these Karen Walker sunglasses for forever - who knew there were look-alikes out there for only $11!!! I'm also seriously considering ordering this palm print dress and the Rebecca Minkoff look-alike bag. Obsessed!

Also, don't forget about the Nordstrom Early Access Anniversary Sale going on - you can shop my favorites here! Hope everyone has a great Wednesday :)

  12. I love this post! I am a new mom to a 5 month old and my hubby is still in school so I don't have huge amounts to spend on clothes right now. I find this so helpful. I have my own fashion blog, and most of my pieces are affordable as well :)

  22. in that first look, I actually prefer the look alike to the actual designer outfit. that never happens! great job, btw. I feel like this wouldn't be an all that easy task.
