Budget Look – Spring, Sporty Florals

by Irina on March 31, 2017

Finally! Spring has officially arrived and I’ve been loving all the sunshine, the blooming flora and the soothing mild temperatures lately! The new season not only lightened up my mood but also my wardrobe; I’m super into pastel colors these days and couldn’t care less for body-con clothes and uncomfortable high heels at the moment. That’s why for this month’s budget look edition, I’ve tried to combine all of my current Spring trend obsessions into one outfit: soft pastel colors, relaxed fits and feminine florals. Let me know if you like my delicate yet sporty Spring look.

Budget Look – Welcoming Spring in Pastel Pink

by Irina on February 28, 2017

Spring is officially around the corner and I can’t wait to ditch all of my winter clothes and finally pull out airy dresses and open-toed sandals from their winter hiatus. But since Spring isn’t in full bloom yet, we can’t probably do without a warm coat or jacket, but we can definitely welcome the new season by lightening up our wardrobe with pastel colors for example which is what I tried to do in this week’s budget look edition. Let me know if you like it!

We do see a whole lot of lace-up bodysuits or tops in stores nowadays, but back in 2015 Givenchy were among the first designers to rediscover this super sexy trend in their badass Fall/Winter collection 2015. Shortly after the collection debut, mega socialite Kim Kardashian wore the runway look head-to-toe, going braless in this deep plunging v-neck bodysuit and – if I might add – absolutely killing it while doing so! Sure, the outfit was risqué, revealing and overtly sexual, but Kim had the poise and attitude to pull it off. The lace-up bodysuit then continued to garner further fame and attraction as more celebrities and fashion insiders have been seen wearing this super sexy, bondage-inspired $2.600 Givenchy number. Yes, you read that right: this bodysuit costs $2.600!

Nasty Gal Bad to the Bone Lace-Up Bodysuit

If you want to try the lace-up bodysuit trend without having to go bankrupt, I suggest you take a long good look at this Givenchy inspired number by Nasty Gal. It’s super close to the real deal, but costs a fraction of the designer price: $78 instead of $2.600! This one’s my personal dupe favorite!

Bardot “Tavia” Lace-up Bodysuit

Another fab steal deal option is this lace-up bodysuit by Bardot. Like the Nasty Gal version, this one, too, is very similar to the pricey Givenchy bodysuit. It’s currently on sale for $51, but you have to hurry as it’s pretty much sold out everywhere.

Mary Seng from Happily Grey is one of my absolute favorite personal style bloggers at the moment. I love scrolling through her Instagram feed; she has such a great taste in clothes and I adore her sense of style which is modern yet feminine and elegant yet also bold and fearless. To me it feels like Mary isn’t afraid of playing with fashion and taking risks while at the same time still maintaining her unique style and genuineness. One of her recent looks particularly caught my attention; Mary wore a white oversized chunky knit sweater with a beautiful forest green wool skirt which she then paired with a timeless black quilted Chanel bag. I loved this outfit so much that I just had to recreate it on a more accessible level with budget-friendly options. Let me know what you think of my white and green blogger winter look for less.

Budget Look – Californian Winter Wonderland

by Irina on December 23, 2016

Christmas is right around the corner and today I was in such a festive mood that I decided to create a wintery budget look to honor the coldest of seasons. But it wasn’t until I was finished and very proud of my creation that I noticed this black-white-blush winter outfit might not be exactly weatherproof for colder climates (hello, backless loafers and sheer mesh body!). So instead of ditching the whole look and starting all over again, I simply decided to rename the outfit theme from “Winter Wonderland” to “Californian Winter Wonderland”. Pure genius, I know. But anyways: Happy Holidays, everyone! I hope you will be able to enjoy a relaxed and joyful Christmas with all your loved ones! And now step away from your computer and treat yourself to a Christmas cookie or two.
