Hervé Léger

Update: This post has been updated on November 11, 2017. Scroll down to see the new add.

In one of the Gossip Girl episodes called “The Grandfather”, Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester) wore an unusually sexy, figure-hugging Hervé Léger bandage mini dress with white criss cross inlays. However, Blair’s risqué dress was tamed with a cute beige embellished Joie cardigan and a cute nautical Tomassini necklace.

Jessica McClintock Strapless Taffeta Dress

Covet the body-con dress, but don’t have a $2k budget? You’re in luck because this strapless taffeta dress by Jessica McClintock is a great budget-friendly Hervé Léger alternative. The dress may be black instead of navy, but otherwise it has the same length, cut and detailing. It’s also currently on sale being marked down from $150 to $90. Who else smells a great deal here?

There was a time, somewhere around 2007-2008 I think, when Hervé Léger‘s bandage dresses were all the rage. Back then you could point your finger to any red carpet event and there was at least one celebrity, no matter whether A- or D-list, who was wearing one of the brand’s bodycon banded pencil dresses. However, people got tired of wearing (and seeing) the overtly sexy dresses eventually and slowly but steadily Hervé Léger vanished from the red carpet radar. But now that the hype has died down, my admiration for the brand’s iconic pieces returned. And this gorgeous cobalt blue cap sleeve bandage pencil dress had me at cobalt blue. Now isn’t this a stunning dress? So elegant and timeless; hugging your curves in all the right places while the vibrant color will make you the center of attention at any cocktail party. If just it weren’t for the price tag…

ASOS SCULPT Bandage Midi Dress With Gold Bar Belt

Now imagine my delight when I stumbled upon this beautiful Hervé Léger look-alike bandage dress at ASOS a few days ago! It may not be an identical dupe match, but the inspiration behind this dress is more than obvious. I loooove that ASOS kept the vibrant blue color, but I’m not too keen on the gold bar belt to be honest. But still, this dress is probably the closest you can get when looking for Hervé Léger chic on a budget at the moment.

Valentine’s Day Outfit Shopping @ Shopbop

by Irina on February 7, 2012

Personally, I think Valentine’s Day is stupid and I try to ignore it as much as I can. On the other side though, any excuse that lets me do some imaginary outfit shopping at Shopbop is more than welcome, so below you can see my favorite picks. Let me know what you think of V-Day, whether you celebrate it or not and most importantly, what you’re going to wear to impress your Valentine (assuming you do celebrate this day, of course).
