Do I even need to say that I absolutely love this Ralph Lauren Black Label dress? I mean, it has stripes on it (big stripes addict talking here!), is made out of cotton (= low maintenance) plus navy & red is one of my favorite color combinations of all time! The retail price for this one used to be $355, however the dress is currently on sale for $189. Which is still way too expensive for most of us I guess. Boohoo!

Remember Zoe Saldana’s cute striped EXPRESS dress from 2011? Well, it sould out super fast after Zoe has been spotted wearing it and finally, two years later, EXPRESS decided to restock this lovely numer for summer 2013. Luckily it doubles as a great and budget-friendly alternative to the Ralph Lauren stripe dress above as well. And oooh, did I mention the EXPRESS dress is currently on sale for $34.93 and comes also in black/white and navy/green. Score!

I haven’t been paying much attention to Ralph Lauren in the last few years, but when I accidentally landed on their website a few days ago I was amazed by the amount of beautiful designs I spotted there. One of my favorites would have to be this minimalistic LWD from the Ralph Lauren Black Label Collection. I love the crisp white color in combination with the clean, structured lines and the soft wavy hem ruffles! It’s such an elegant cocktail dress! And quite expensive too at $998!

HOT DEAL: Spend $140 and enjoy free 2-day shipping at ASOS! Use promo code “EXPRESSUSA” at checkout. Valid on US orders only. Cannot be used in conjunction with another promo code. Maximum spend: $848.

So I bought this exact dress by Closet a few months ago at ASOS without even knowing that it was designer-inspired. Of course, I bought it full-price (d’uh!) because I was dead certain it would be sold out in my size before it could get it on sale (obviously I was wrong!). Now I own quite a few Closet dresses already and let me tell you: they are all beautiful and very well-made dresses that are totally worth their moderate price (currently under $40! Score!). And while this body-con dress is not too forgiving figure-wise, it does look amazing on when you’re in good shape and looks especially beautiful against tanned skin. Plus, it’s also available in a lovely green color.

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?

Remember last spring when floral denim was all the rage? I was admittedly a little hesitant about that trend, but there was one floral jeans which I have fallen in love with and it was this rose-print skinny jeans by J Brand. It was love at first sight. What I liked about it is that it’s a bi-colored version and the almost tattoo-like flower print is also large enough to not look too busy which I find to be a frequent problem with floral print. This skinny jeans however looked perfect to me… perfectly expensive ($203), too!

When I browsed Forever 21‘s latest arrivals, I stumbled upon this floral skinny jeans and it immediately reminded me of the upscale J Brand version above. The beige color has more yellow undertones and the rose print on this jeans is not quite as pretty as on the designer jeans, but for $24.80 it’s a great alternative if you can’t afford to splurge on J Brand.

Update: This post has been updated on July 12, 2013. Scroll down to see the new add.

I’ve heard a lot of good things about the newly re-launched brand Equipment. Their blouses and shirts are supposed to be top notch quality and they quickly gained a loyal celebrity following since their re-launch in 2010. Fashion insiders like Carine Roitfeld and Giovanna Battaglia are fans as well. While I can’t comment on the quality of Equipment clothing myself (yet!) and hence can’t say whether it’s worth the splurge, I sure can say that I absolutely love the look of this semi-sheer striped silk-chiffon shirt in cream and black! I mean it has stripes on it, and as you might already know that’s all it takes to get me swooning over something!

LC Lauren Conrad Striped Chiffon Blouse

Now look which celebrity socialite is taking inspiration from her own designer wardrobe for her budget-priced fashion line! When I saw this LC Lauren Conrad chiffon blouse I was instantly reminded of the Equipment striped shirt. And besides the slight variation in color and the crochet collar, I can’t really see any visual differences between these two (not talking about quality here!). Snap up this blouse for only $13.20 and get yourself the coral/white version, too, while you’re at it.
