Hello fashion followers,
This post is for you. I was up at this ungodly hour checking out a couple of my go-to guides and came across Keiko Lynn’s new post . And I must say, I was smitten. It’s print on print, which I’m not sure if I’m brave enough to do, with a bow embellished suede chunky heeled pump. Very cute. Also out of my budget, sadly.. very sadly.
So I went on a little quest to recreate it to the best of my thrifty abilities.
First I tackled the shoes. Which I love. The tender blue hue and subtle arch at the toe remind me of Sofia Copolla’s Marie Antoinette, which I also love, love love. Taking a nod from GlitterNGlue‘s recent livechat on embellishing shoes, I decided to do a little search and see what I came up with. And may I just say that I really do hope this non stripper, chunky heel sticks around for a while. Just looking at them makes my feet feel better.
The Shoes are target, the Hailey Pump, around $32 and the bows are from forever21 for around $3. My suggestion is warm up your hot glue gun and get to work. Save around $70 for a super similar, super cute look ( that is if you, like myself, already have the glue gun ) (also the bows are a bit bigger than pictured, I just scaled them down )
Next is the print on print which is really popular and really nerve-racking, at least for myself, as my inner fashionista, has a shyer side. It was pretty hard finding the polka-dot bottoms, so I found a light floral instead, and put the dots on top (remembering the peter pan collar )
Per typical, I went with the pastel floral motif. The top is from Lulu*s, for $37 and the jeans are from Forever21 UK for about $30-$35 (saving about $150 for the jeans)
So that’s all, I would go all out and find the cardi too, but it’s too gosh darn hot here for cardigans right now! This might be a safer version, how could anyone think you look ridiculous when you look so sweet? Hope you enjoy!
Thanks for the lovely inspiration Keiko Lynn & GlitterNGlue!
