First let me start off by saying that I really, really love cobalt blue. It’s such a flattering, deep and intense color. Another thing I also really, really love are shift dresses. For me, they’re infinitely feminine and elegant. Upon browsing NORDSTROM’s newest arrivals today I discovered this cobalt blue shift dress and it was all over for me. I was obsessed. So much that I had to create a budget look around this dress. I know the red bowed accessories might be a little too matchy-matchy for some of you, but I find it kind of charming in this case. Let me know what you think.
It’s all about military style this fall. Balmain started it, Burberry Prorsum refined it and the rest came along. Now we’re seeing tons of army green chinos, studded combat boots and military jackets. If you’re loving this trend, but don’t have the cash to follow into Balmain’s footsteps, here’s a budget-friendly outfit I created with all items being available at Charlotte Russe. The total cost of this outfit sums up to a fair $137 and quite frankly I’m a little proud of myself. I’m especially loving the boots here.
Budget Look is a new feature I’m introducing to InTheirCloset.com – it will be a regular feature where we put together whole outfits with affordable items trying to keep the total of the look under $200. The first budget look is revolved around a beautiful celery green summer dress I found on LuLu*s yesterday. It’s a color we don’t see often: a pastel light green with yellow undertones. While thinking about which color would compliment it yellow naturally popped up in my mind. Too bad yellow doesn’t get much recognition, it’s such an underestimated color. I guess people shy away from it because it stands out so much, but isn’t there a more perfect time to wear it than summer? The whole look comes in at a reasonable $161.99. Not too bad, right?
