Out & About

Nicole Richie looked absolutely fabulous when she was out and about in Beverly Hills a few weeks ago. Nicole was wearing a red double breasted coat from Sonia by Sonia Rykiel, black skinny jeans & matching Louboutins with white trimmed Chanel sunglasses, a slouchy Rick Owens beanie and her much loved Balenciaga motorcycle bag.

Chinese Laundry “Sudoku” Sandals

Aren’t these “Sudoku” flat sandals by Chinese Laundry just too cute? And they’re affordable, too. A perfect pair of summer flats with an edgy twist. Other available color options are desert tan, navy and rose.

Vanessa sure loves her Chinese Laundry sandals as she has been seen sporting them various times while she was out and about.

JJ Winters Grey Suede Fringed Bag

This grey suede fringe messenger bag by JJ Winters costs $409 and is also available in various other colors.

Seems like Vanessa is also a big fan of her JJ Winters fringed bag. She has been seen toting it around at least a dozen times.

Calleen Cordero Julia Pfeifer Cuff #8

I LOVE Vanessa’s turquoise stoned Calleen Cordero cuff. It’s quintessential boho chic, handmade and the quantities are limited. If $249 is your kind of budget, get yours before they’re gone.

Alexander Wang is some sort of fashion genius. He’s young (25), but incredibly talented (Wang scored the CFDA 200k Fashion Fund last year) and I adore his talent to mix simple silhouettes with edgy details. This grey semi-sheer knit vest is one of his many amazing pieces which has a deep v-neck, black buttons, front pockets and twisted racerback. If you’re smitten with the vest as much as I am, you can get the real deal at 50% off.

Kim Kardashian in Alexander Wang

Kim Kardashian seems to have jumped on the fashionista bandwagon. I think she really tries to get rid off her socialite status image. Which sounds good to me. Good luck with that! Below you can see Kim’s attempt at going the edgy chic route. She did quite well for the first time, but there’s still too much LA showing through her whole getup. Her look is too polished. When you go for Alexander Wang, it’s all about the “I barely care how I look because I’m way too cool for vanity“-attitude. That’s what makes his clothes so appealing.

Alexander Wang Knit Vest 4 Less

Spending $300 on a vest sounds like a lot of money to most of us and it certainly is. But fortunately there are a few good alternatives out there that will give you the same look without breaking the bank. I’d loooove to own the original Alexander Wang vest though, it’s so simple, but oh so chic! If only I had a few hundred dollars laying around here.

Forever 21 Chantelle Knit Cardigan

This grey knit vest from Forever 21 is probably one of the closest matches when you’re trying to get Alexander Wang 4 Less. The details setting designer fashion and copycats apart are lacking of course (black buttons and no twisted racerback), but the overall look and feel is quite the same, so if you want to make a deal, get this vest for only $24.80.

Splendid Sleeveless Buttoned Cardigan

Another great match is this sleeveless grey buttoned cardigan vest from Splendid. Unfortunately, it doesn’t have the same plunge neckline as the Alexander Wang one and the buttons are too small and there are too many of them for my liking, but I do love the cute pockets, so I guess it’s a tie. As with the Forever 21 vest, this one doesn’t have the racerback as well which is too bad because it looks so sexy. The vest is a bit on the expensive side with $66 and comes also in black.

Free People Grey Sleeveless Slouchy Vest

This slouchy knit vest by Free People doesn’t have the black big buttons, but it does have a racerback like the Alexander Wang version. The vest originally retailed for $88, but has been reduced to affordable $29.95 and is also available in eggplant purple.

Express Knit Cardigan Vest

This cardigan vest by Express is darker than the other alternatives, but it’s basically the same style (deep v-neck, pockets & big buttons) without the edgy details of the Alexander Wang version (no racerback, no black buttons). The vest comes also in black and is reasonably priced at $29.50. If you want a looser fit just like the Alexander Wang knit vest, buy the cardigan vest one or two sizes bigger than normal. This will have the same effect.

High School Musical star Vanessa Hudgens is quickly becoming THE style icon for fashionable youngsters. The 20-year-old actress proved her chic sense of style when she attended the High School Musical 3 photocall in Sydney back in November 2008. Vanessa wore a purple print halter-neck top from Falls, a black skinny jean from Joe’s Jeans and – my favorite item of her outfit – a pair of to-die-for Giuseppe Zanotti t-strap sandals in tortoise with a golden buckle on the front.
