Valentine’s Day is approaching and I’m still not a big fan. I do like to dress up for special occasions however, that’s why I decided to let my imagination run wild to create an imaginary V-Day outfit. This year I wanted the look to be bold, so I went with a red and black color theme. The floral-embroidered top is obviously the eyecatcher in this look and adds some serious drama while the rest of the outfit is kept classic yet sexy yet feminine. Do you like it? And what are your outfit ideas for Valentine’s Day?

Dolce Gabbana Spring 2015 x Nasty Gal

by Irina on February 4, 2016

Dolce Gabbana‘s Spring 2015 Collection has been by far one of my absolute favorites in the last five to ten years. Now I’ve always been a huge fan of Italian design duo Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, but S/S 2015 was especially outstandingly beautiful! All of the looks were so extravagant, so feminine, so sensual, so bold! Those floral embroideries combined with delicate lace and luxurious silks? Pure heaven! But that beauty, of course, came with a price. A skirtls from that collection for example would sell for an astronomical price of $12.500, a mini dressls went for roughly $10.000. With prices that high, there wasn’t even the slightest thought of purchasing possible.

Nasty Gal does Dolce & Gabbana S/S 2015

Then a few days ago I happened to stumble upon a few pieces on Nasty Gal that somehow looked all too familiar. And after a few seconds it suddenly hit me: Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2015, of course! I mean, just look at the model’s hair and makeup! Totally obvious! The designs themselves aren’t spot-on dupes, but close enough to pretend you’re a sultry Italian duchess. Some of the pieces have already sold out of many sizes, so lightning-fast shopping is advised.

Oh Balmain, how I love your sharp-tailored blazers! And apparently Kim Kardashian does just the same as she’s been spotted wearing this gorgeous military-inspired double-breasted leather blazer on at least 12 different outings. And if you follow Kim K.’s style, you’ll know how rare it is to see her wear something as bold as this blazer more than once, so she must be really in love with this particular piece. I so wish I could afford me some Balmain real deal goodness, but at $4.080 this isn’t going to happen anytime soon.

Kim Kardashian Loves Balmain

Balmain’s no. 1 fangirl, Kim Kardashian, has been spotted wearing Balmain Double-Breasted Leather Blazer at least a dozen times.

Vakko for INC International Concepts Faux-Leather Blazer

While randomly browsing the big ol’ Internet today, I stumbled upon this chic faux leather blazer by INC International Concepts and it stopped me right in my tracks. Everything about it looked so familiar – the design, the colors, the silhouette – and after about five seconds it dawned on me: Balmain on a budget for sure! The original price for this piece used to be $169.50 which I find to be quite heavy for a *faux* leather blazer, but luckily it got marked down to a little over $100 as of now. So if you’re a passionate Balmain lover and are willing to invest a bit to get the coveted designer look, this is a great alternative. A lovely grey faux suede version can be found here, btw.

Stripes. I’m still ridiculously obsessed with them and probably will never grow tired of them. That’s why I probably don’t have to tell you how I feel about this striped silk midi skirt by Tibi. And after seeing this skirt on some of my most favorite fashion bloggers, it made my obsession with it ten times worse. Not that I could give in to the temptation of buying it – that skirt costs a whopping $349 and that’s already the sale price (retail is $698)! But still… if I was rich girl (na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na nah)

Update (01/12/2016): Discovered this awesome striped midi skirt at ASOS a few days ago, ordered it straight away and love it to death! It’s a great and budget-friendly alternative to the pretty Tibi skirt above, don’t you think? Sizes are selling out by the hour, so I wouldn’t wait too long with this one.

Update (10/29/2015): Spotted another great Tibi skirt alternative today! The stripes on this a-line skirt by Forever 21 are slightly smaller, but the overall look is still very Tibi and the price is so affordable, too. Available in either ivory/black or wine/black for $27.90.

Topshop Stripe Midi Skirt

Luckily, Topshop caters to the needs of us stripe-lovin’, budget-conscious fashionistas, so they came up with a fantastic Tibi look for less option that will cost you just 1/7 of what the real deal would set you back. It’s not the cheapest skirt in town, I admit, but from what I read in reviews, the quality seems to be good and the fabric to be heavy and crease-free. And who doesn’t love to save time on ironing? Get this beauty while it’s still available, it’s almost sold out at Topshop and Nordstrom will probably follow soon as well.

Choies Striped Midi Skirt

If you love striped skirts, but don’t want to spend $100 on one, then you might want to take a look at this Tibi-inspired midi skirt I discovered at Choies. It looks very similar to the real deal, but costs only $17.99! You shouldn’t expect too much quality-wise, but if you want a cheap fashion fix for your stripes obession, this is probably the best way to go.

Fall has officially arrived now and I am slowly starting to build my winter wardrobe. Acne Studios‘ “Velocite” shearling jacket has been an obsession of mine for several years. I just love the luxe-looking, plush shearling lining, the straps and buckles, the oversized moto look. It’s the perfect winter jacket and just look how fab and cozy all the style bloggers look in their Acne Velocite below. The only thing holding me back to get my own Acne Velocite? The price tag, of course. $2.800 is a pretty steep price.
