I really wish I would be more of a DIY person because there are so many great fashion DIY tutorials out there and while I would love to try many of them, I simply have to come to terms that my crafts talent is limited. However, those Valentino “Rockstud” DIYs I think even I could handle because they really mostly just require to find a similar shoe and glueing a couple of pyramid studs on it. Doesn’t sound too hard to me. So how about this Valentino Rockstud DIY tutorial then? Banana Republic‘s “Rosella” sandal looks a lot like Valentino’s non-studded little sister and would be just perfect for a Valentino Rockstud DIY project, don’t you think?

Lately, I’ve been obsessed with soft, flesh-toned colors such as blush pink. There’s something so quintessentially feminine about that color that makes me want to turn my wardrobe into an altar for everything blush. So when I happened to come across this gorgeous nude-colored draped jersey skirt by Rachel Pally, I simply had to create a blush-toned look around it. I went full on matchy-matchy with this outfit which might be a bit too much for some, but I totally love it. Do you?

When scouring the big interwebs for designer dupes I automatically stumble upon many great budget finds that aren’t designer-inspired (or at least not that I would notice) and hence don’t get the same attention and love on this blog as the steal finds which, of course, is a shame. That’s why I like to occasionally highlight my favorite budget finds from time to time. ‘Nuff said, enjoy my list and let me know if you have any must-have adds of your own.
