Budget Look – Cozy Meets Elegant by BP.

by Irina on November 5, 2015

Today I felt like doing a new budget look after seeing so many gorgeous (and budget-friendly) fall staple pieces by BP. at Nordstrom. I didn’t follow a predetermined concept on this one, but simply put together what I thought would look great together. And if you’re an avid reader of this blog, you will easily recognize a lot of designer inspiration in many of the pieces shown below. We have some Burberry, Chanel, Isabel Marant and Michael Kors inspirations going on in this look. So what do you think? Did I do a good job on this one? Can you see yourself wearing this outfit?

I think I must have already mentioned at least a thousand times how much I adore the feminine creations of Italian fashion house Dolce & Gabbana. And it seems Poppy Delevingne is also a fan because she took to the red carpet last week looking like straight out of a fairy tale wearing a gorgeous floral Dolce & Gabbana brocade mini dress, red Aquazzura pumps and a Jennifer Behr floral headband. I loved Poppy’s romantic look so much, I simply had to recreate her premiere outfit on a more budget-friendly level. How do you like it?

It’s no wonder why all the celebs are donning this Victoria Beckham Stretch-Crepe Dress. After winning Designer Brand of the Year in 2011 during the British Fashion Awards, Victoria Beckham has not only been praised by her designer counterparts but also with the support of many fellow celebrities. Her clothing designs have been iconic and this dress proves that sentiment. In fact, this particular dress has been so popular, that it was not only priced at $2.750 but is already sold out! The unique design and color contrast is simple yet so elegant and girly. For an affordable take on this dress, take a look at the steal below!

Choies Zip Back Body-Con Dress

UPDATE (07/28/2015): Didn’t expect to find a new dupe for this Victoria Beckham dress, but when I browsed Choies today, this lovely frock suddenly popped up.

McBerry Strappy Dress

With the minor differences between this McBerry and the Victoria Beckham dress, it is safe to say that this is a great steal. The only aspect really missing is the zipper appliqué going down the back of the dress. Otherwise, the colors are amazingly accurate as well as the length and silhouette. Plus, this dress doesn’t require a major investment as it’s priced at £79! With a delivery charge it can shipped anywhere in the world, that is, with an extra shipping fee depending upon which country you select.

Can you believe half of the year has almost already gone by? Time flies, my friends, and summer has officially arrived – at least in our calendars! In order to celebrate the seasonal change, I created my first 2015 summer budget look to properly welcome the season of pool parties, BBQs, tan lines and cool drinks. For this look I took to the summer sky as my source of inspiration: baby blue with a little bit of cloudy white here and there and splashes of summery yellow everywhere in between.

I always say that the awesomeness of an article of clothing can be judged by how many talented stylists pull it for their clients to wear. If we go by my thought then the Dolce & Gabbana corset dress is something everyone should run out and buy. Was. Was something we should’ve bought. If you weren’t lucky enough to snag one last spring, it is unfortunately sold out, but read on…

bebe Hook & Eye Detail Dress

Update (05/26/2015): When I spotted this beautiful strapless pencil dress by bebe I instantly thought of the Dolce & Gabbana corset dress above and thought it would serve as a nice look 4 less alternative. Also available in petite sizes.

Guess by Marciano Carmella Corset Dress

For those of you that are subscribing to my above style tip, or perhaps you just love the dress, Guess by Marciano has created their own version of it. The Carmella dress is slightly more form-fitting, but still features the decorative vertical seams. This detailing is supposed to mimic boning and is extremely figure flattering. Carmella is a ton more affordable and conveniently available now in either white or gold.
