You can love or hate Kim Kardashian all you want, but there’s no denying that some of her outfits are absolutely superb! I’m not quite sure if this is mainly due to Kim having a really good stylist, but whatever it is, it works, so please don’t stop, Kimmy! Case in point: Kim’s body-con getup at Teyana Taylor’s VII Listening Party which consisted of a creamy white high-waist pencil skirt, a matching tight turtleneck sweater, taupe heels, soft waves and understated makeup. Doesn’t she look just perfect here? The sex appeal of this outfit lies within the curvaceous silhouette while the high-necked top and midi-length skirt bring some much needed elegance and class to Kim’s look. The minute I spotted this gorgeous outfit of Kim, I knew I would have to do a look 4 less of it. Soooo, what do you think? Is my budget-friendly take on Kim’s look on point or not so much?

Who could not love Nikki Reed‘s outfit here? A cool leather jacket, red lips and matching heels, a striped shirt paired with skinny jeans and big black shades – isn’t that a look pretty much every woman would approve (and one that would make almost every woman look good in)? It’s equally cool and casual, but also dressed up thanks to the heels and red lips and a little badass, too. Below is our budget-friendly take on Nikki Reed’s fabulous outfit. Do you like it?

We haven’t had a sunglass post in a while, so here you go! Have I ever told you that I’m quite fond of cat eyes and tortoise when it comes to sunglasses? So naturally, I’m a little obsessed with these two-tone sunnies by Kate Spade. But since I have already about a gazillion pair of sunglasses at home, there’s absolutely no way I’d spend $170 on yet another pair.

While doing my daily blog research I stumbled upon these lovely cat-eye sunglasses by Fantas Eyes and they instantly reminded me of the Kate Spade pair above. However, these are $22 only and you know what? I think I even like this steal deal more than the real deal. How about you?

Whenever I find myself getting bored with fashion (and let’s be honest: after 6 years of fashion blogging this is something that is inevitably going to happen from time to time), I either load up Pinterest or Instagram to combat the fashion blue and where I then spend countless hours browsing one image after another in order to reignite my love for all things fashion and recharge me with new ideas and fresh inspiration. Oh, the pitfalls of social media! To cut a long story short: during my last time hunting on Pinterest for new content ideas, I stumbled upon a pinned image featuring a woman wearing a gorgeous taupe tulle skirt and it was love at first sight. My research regarding obtaining said gorgeous taupe tulle skirt revealed that it was a handmade, long sold-out tulle skirt someone once had listed on Etsy. Yeah, story of my life. So I carried on with my life and had almost forgotten about that tulle skirt already when suddenly, yesterday I happened to browse Chicwish‘s newest arrivals and there it was: a fluffy, taupe tulle skirt looking almost exactly like the one shown in the pin. And it was available! For only $50! Needless to say I just *had* to recreate the whole look in the picture with that gorgeous new tulle skirt I so newly discovered. You like it?
