Okay, so let’s talk black and white stripes… again. This time I have a style blogger look 4 less for you which is inspired by Blair from the ever so gorgeous blog Atlantic-Pacific. Seriously, I’m in love with this girl! Not only does she have an impeccable sense of style, she also seems to have quite the obsession with monochrome stripes which makes her that much more loveable to me. I can relate, Blair, I can relate! – But anyway, how do you like my Blair inspired stripey b&w outfit?

Real vs. Steal – CC Skye Roma Cuff

by Roseanne on February 18, 2014

Update: This post has been updated on February 18, 2014. Scroll down to see the new adds.

This Grecian inspired cuff by CC Skye is a beautiful accessory to polish off an outfit for a flawless and glamorous look. The luxe design of this Roma Cuff features cut-outs for a multidimensional finish and exudes an undeniable charm. But $175 $99 is a little pricey for an accessory unless it becomes an everyday staple or a splurge! If you aren’t willing to spend that much money, we have a beautiful and budget-friendly alternative below!

Vince Camuto “Basics” Cut Out Cuff Bracelet

I’m a fan of Vince Camuto‘s clothing designs and footwear, so it doesn’t come as a surprise that I find this minimalistic, Art Deco like cuff to be simply mesmerizing. Though it greatly resembles the cuff above, the price is more affordable at $48, and the minimal shape adds a modern yet elegant touch. As an accessory, this cuff can be the ultimate statement piece paired with any geometric top for a simple yet bold finish.

Back in November last year Selena Gomez donned a very sexy yet elegant look that I totally fell in love with. The young actress wore a black cut-out satin dress with a deep plunging neckline by Cushnie et Ochs and completed her outfit with plum lips, wavy hair and black pointy suede pumps. I took my chance at recreating Selena’s vampy look on a budget-friendly, what do you think? Did I succeed?

So this ring doesn’t need an introduction I think. The highly-coveted Arty ring by Yves Saint Laurent. If you follow the fashion blogosphere I’m pretty sure you’ve come across it already. It’s either on almost every fashion blogger’s fingers or at least lingers on their wish list. And while $290 is an almost OK price for such a stunning piece of jewelry, not everyone can or wants to spend that much money on costume jewelry.

(P.P.S.: Did I mention I desperately want this ring in the lustworthy indigo version? I’m planning to get it for my birthday… yup, I’m one of those lemming fashion bloggers.) Purchased the indigo blue version in the recent NET-A-PORTER semi-annual sale for 60% off and am absolutely in love with it! No buyer’s remorse!

I’m a big fan of nOir Jewelry and really loved their extravagant “Jaipur” collection which features neon cord bracelets, necklaces and earrings adorned with beautiful rhinestone embellishments. It’s a very unexpected way to pair such contrasting elements yet I think the combination of both totally works together. Sure, the pieces certainly have “trendy” written all over them, but to me they’re still pretty wearable. However, would I really shell out $160 for a cord bracelet? Hmmm, probably not.

Express Neon Cord & Rhinestone Bracelet

If you’re like me and like the neon bracelet, but don’t want to spend too much on the neon trend, here’s a great alternative by Express that looks virtually identical to the “Adalti” bracelet but costs only $39.90 instead of $160! FYI: this would make a great gift for any fashion-forward, fearless fashionista.
