A few days ago Jessica Alba and her cute little daughters attended Ralph Lauren’s Fall ’13 Girls Runway Show in The Hamptons. The former actress and now entrepreneur (see The Honest Life) looked absolutely amazing in head-to-toe Ralph Lauren; I just adore the navy blue polka dot dress on Jessica which she combined with a denim jacket, a monochrome two-tone satchel and matching black cork wedge heels. The dress is supposed to be from Ralph Lauren’s Black Label Collection, however, I couldn’t find it anywhere online, but stumbled upon an almost identical and more affordable alternative at NORDSTROM (see dress #1 in the list below). How do you like my budget-friendly take on Jessica Alba’s casual-chic summer look? Yay or nay?

If you’re looking for some fashion inspiration for the upcoming Spring and want to see a beautifully designed lookbook, then you have to check out Ted Baker‘s S/S 2013 collection. The lookbook is absolutely amazing to look at and the clothes shown there are just as lustworthy. Pastels, florals, brights and delicate tailoring – these seem to be Ted Baker’s key themes for the S/S 2013 collection.

Once you’re finished checking out the lookbook, make sure to head over to the Ted Baker online shop and have a look at the new arrivals as well. There are so many great pieces! Not exactly budget-friendly, but a few of the items definitely have investment potential (e.g. the jacquard Pattern Blazer shown in the look below).

I think I gushed quite a few times about Wendy from Wendy’s Lookbook already. Her style blog is one of my absolute favorites and I just love how she always comes up with creative new ways to pair things together and still manages too look classy and elegant. But while Wendy can afford a wardrobe full of lustworthy designer items, most of us can’t, so I decided to recreate one of her lovely outfits on a more budget-friendly level. Do you like this style blogger look 4 less? Let me know in the comments.

Have we all noticed the vast increases of striped…anything? Pants, dresses, jackets, shoes – even bags. Everything comes in stripes this season. When I first spotted the bebe dress below I was instantly reminded of this absolutely gorgeous striped Burberry Prorsum trench coat from the S/S 2013 collection. To me it seems like the bebe dress is kind of inspired by the Burberry Prorsum trench. Do you agree?
