Okay, so let’s talk black and white stripes… again. This time I have a style blogger look 4 less for you which is inspired by Blair from the ever so gorgeous blog Atlantic-Pacific. Seriously, I’m in love with this girl! Not only does she have an impeccable sense of style, she also seems to have quite the obsession with monochrome stripes which makes her that much more loveable to me. I can relate, Blair, I can relate! – But anyway, how do you like my Blair inspired stripey b&w outfit?

When it comes to shoes, Azzedine Alaïa has yet to disappoint me. I’ve loved every single of his shoes and I think this isn’t going to change soon. Just look at these fabulous strappy high heels sandals with the stingray leather straps. I love the bondage-y vibe they give off, it makes such a sexy look, don’t you agree? But whoah, have you seen the price?

Diavolina “Jester” Suede Strappy High Heel Sandals

Apart from the luxe stingray leather straps, these strappy heels by Diavolina are pretty much a spot-on dupe of the Alaïa high heel sandals above which retail for a much nicer $139.95 AUD. Also available in black/white lizard.

Even though I am not very partial to Birkenstock shoes, I know Céline made them “très cool” last year. And this year, we have Isabel Marant strengthening their coolness factor even further by adding a cute studded bow on top and giving those bland Birkenstocks her typical boho touch which we’ve seen in previous of Marant’s collections. Well, I have to admit I kinda like these summer sandals here and I bet these suckers are super comfortable to wear!

So you can’t afford to spend $600 on the originals yet these shoes just won’t go out of your head? Well then take a look at this Jessica Buurman sandal which is quite obviously inspired by Marant’s “Edris” sandal above. It’s not a perfect dupe and you obviously won’t get the same quality, but it’s $450 cheaper, so that’s that.

I think it has become clear why celebs absolutely adore the essential trench, and after all who can blame them? As a vital wardrobe must, this trench coat by Burberry is the ultimate classical statement with a contemporary twist. The silhouette is very flattering, framing the body and accentuating (and concealing) all the right places. Featuring leather piping, this adds a modern flair and truly brings a swanky feel to this highly coveted item. Though the price tag is quite steep, the steal below speaks for itself!

Warehouse Piped Trench

UPDATE (08/02/2012): Check out this fabulous Warehouse trench coat I found on ASOS today. So similar to the Burberry mac, right? Love it!

Wallis Tipped Belted Trench

Wallis is currently having a sale on this an amazing Tipped Belt Trench priced for only $88! As trench coat season is soon approaching, this one would definitely serve as a great transition piece plus make a staple in your closet. Also, if you’re against wearing leather, this may be a great alternative to the Burberry trench as it highlights a similar style without the leather piping.
