Budget Look – Cozy Meets Elegant by BP.

by Irina on November 5, 2015

Today I felt like doing a new budget look after seeing so many gorgeous (and budget-friendly) fall staple pieces by BP. at Nordstrom. I didn’t follow a predetermined concept on this one, but simply put together what I thought would look great together. And if you’re an avid reader of this blog, you will easily recognize a lot of designer inspiration in many of the pieces shown below. We have some Burberry, Chanel, Isabel Marant and Michael Kors inspirations going on in this look. So what do you think? Did I do a good job on this one? Can you see yourself wearing this outfit?

When I was teenager I always wanted a pair of Timberland‘s Premium Work Boots, but my parents never bought them for me. And while I don’t think they would fit in my wardrobe now, there’s still a part in me that wants these shoes badly. But not for $179.95!

When thinking of Christian Louboutin shoes we inevitably associate the brand with sky-high stiletto heels, but did you know Monsieur Louboutin also designs some very fashionable flats? Case in point: these strass-encrusted lace-up sneakers named “Louis”. We have previously written about the spike-stud version, but I think my favorite would have to be this one because of its super sparkly nature. But, whoah, have you seen that enormous price tag of $2.595? Can’t afford that unfortunately.

I love cat-eye sunglasses and I also love Tom Ford. So, here’s a vintage-style pair of sunnies created by Mr. Ford thats look like it came straight out the 50s! While I personally find the high pointed cat-eye shape a little too extreme to rock them myself (these kind of sunnies make my face look incredibly mean and grumpy), with the right styling and outfit I think these could make a bold yet classic statement, Mad Men style. Just look at how the celebs were rocking their Nikita sunglasses and you’ll see what I mean.

I have yet to come across an Ala├»a shoe that I don’t like or covet. His footwear creations are always the right amount of edgy, sexy and creative. Just take a look at these super hot leather and stretch crisscross stilleto sandals! Imagine how awesome these would look with a leather leggings and a structured white blazer! They’re currently on sale at Net-A-Porter (which is a good thing), but even the sale price is still pretty steep at $1.347,50. Some day… some day I will own a pair of Ala├»a heels! Too bad it probably won’t be these ones.
