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?

I might not be the biggest Kardashian fan in general, but for some reason I always find myself interested in their fashion and what they wear on- and off the screen. Fact is, the Kardashian sisters have really stepped up their style game in the last couple of years (which is probably mainly due to them having hired highly skilled personal stylists and MUAs) and if I had to pick my favorite Kardashian fashion-wise, it would have to be Khloè Kardashian. I love that she wears all her clothes with so much confidence and it never looks as if she is trying too hard which I think is sometimes the case with Kim and Kylie’s fashion choices. A few weeks ago Khloé wore a super sexy strapless button-front sheath dress by Cushnie et Ochs for her TV show “Kocktails with Khloé” which instantly reminded me of Liz Hurley’s infamous safety pin dress from Versace that she wore to a film premiere in 1994. I love Khloé’s look head-to-toe here and really hope that ASOS, Topshop or Missguided will come out with a budget-friendly steal option in a couple of weeks for this sexy (and sadly, very pricey) dress. What do you think of Khloé’s revealing look? Hot or not?

This fantastic Valentino Bow d’Orsay Pump may look a little familiar to you… that’s because we featured the red version here on ITC back in July 2009. But nude heels are so hot right now that we felt compelled to revisit this pair. They’re a totally fresh take on nude – sculptural and feminine at the same time.

The curved heel has been making its appearance quite often among stylish footwear lately, adding a futuristic yet minimalistic flair. Not to spare, Maison Martin Margiela brings us a common yet inspiring open toed bootie with a twist. His take on such a popular silhouette makes this design so easy to wear; the versatility goes on without an end just like the price tag. Beautiful, yes, but also extremely pricey. That’s why we have a steal below that is just as gorgeous as it is affordable!

It is my personal opinion that you have to be mentally ill if you do not like this classic staple of a bag! Yves Saint Laurent‘s Muse Large Leather Dome Satchel is a handbag that will never go out of style. This bag comes in several different colors, and I personally love it in the brown which is available through Forzieri. I also love Nicole Richie’s bright yellow version because it gives your most boring outfit a splash of color. If you don’t have the funds to splurge on this handbag we have another alternative for you!
