Inspiration of Style:

Peplum

 

 I am totally into peplum right now! Its all over the pages of magazines and in dozens of stores. Peplum is a ruffle attached to the waistline of a skirt, dress, or even a jacket.  This style is so feminine but also bold. 

When I think peplum the first name that comes to mind is Victoria Beckham. She embodies ladylikeness yet she has such a bold fashion sense.

This is how you wear peplum and my favorite picks of this fashion-do !

Twenty Dollar Trendy Feb 2012

TWENTY DOLLAR TRENDY

FEBRUARY 2012

 

I have been looking lately for a structured bag in a neutral tone that looks polished enough for life in the corporate world but still says I have style, love my designers and own the latest trend.  But I love my bags like I love my shoes which means I have too many to wear and it makes justifing $1,000 on one purse hard at times.  I love how Payless Shoes features some great designer collections like Lela Rose & the fierce Christian Siriano. His clothes are amazing and his ever changing collection at Payless keeps me coming back for more! This crossbody bag in Navy/Tan is a STEAL at just under $20 so when the fashion changes or I beat this bag up & it is on to the next at least I know I looked good while it lasted for just Twenty-Dollar Trendy!

 I love my IPhone 4S! I’ve had an IPhone since the original & I could never switch to any other phone. The IPhones are big & boring looking even though their technology is amazing! I love the beautiful Sworavski crystal encrusted IPhone covers that cost $300 each but I’m too rough and know I’ll damage that in a matter of weeks! Now there is a cheap solution to that boring case problem!  For well under $20 you can get a blinged out IPhone case from Charolette Russe in clear & pink crystals with a big heart!!!

   I <3 this 

 I love a good statement necklace but I do have my classic Tiffany necklace that tends to be a staple item worn on an almost daily basis which is why I hate to spend too much on costume jewlery. I also noticed gold-tone all over the Fall 2012 Fashion Week runway so thought a great way to add in this bold trend & still stand out was on a great neckalce! For under $20 you too can get this fashion statement and update your wardrobe!

Happy Shopping!

Couture to Copy

COUTURE TO COPY

We all know the greatest fashion houses create some of the best shoe designs but those designer duds can cost a pretty penny. While I sometimes splurge on the real thing, my budget cannot cover my shoe fetish at a thousand dollars a pop.  I love walking through Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus just as much as I love to browse through the racks at Target and Ann Taylor. I believe a girl should always invest in good staple items such as the sexy black stiletto, a polished nude wedge, the perfect ballet flat, a basic black pump, a chic pair of boots and glamorous summer sandals…. but let’s be honest, I love shoes too much to only own a few pairs in the closet, even if they are all high-end designers. This brings me to the “Couture to Copy” section of my blog where I will show you a fabulous designer shoe & if it isn’t in your budget but a must-have of the season where you can find it for less but still just as stunning.
