Can we take a short moment here and gush a bit about the amazingness that was Elie Saab’s gorgeous S/S 2014 collection? It was such a beautiful and outstanding collection; there’s not one single thing I wouldn’t love wearing from that collection. I especially loved the floral print pieces like the cute little white shift dress with the floral print on the bottom below. Such a lovely dress, don’t you agree? So imagine my delight when I spotted an almost identical frock at Choies for a steal price of under $40! I instantly had to recreate Elie Saab’s runway look on a budget level, do you like it?

I used to love wearing white when I was a teenager, but then got tired of it and stopped wearing anything white apart from tops or blouses for a very, very long time. Nowadays, I embrace wearing white again and even an all-white look as daring as this one from Jennifer Lopez really finds my liking. I love the crisp cleanliness of J.Lo’s look, so I tried to recreate her outfit for you on a more budget-friendly level. Do you like it?

I’ve spoken so much about the stripe trend lately one might think I have slowly gotten to the point where I and stripes are dunzo, but sorry to disappoint you: not. gonna. happen. EVER! However, I do like to update them with a touch of Spring now that we’re almost half through the month of March: in this case it’s in the form of blue and yellow accessories. What do you think of my colorful stripey budget look?
