I remember how much I fell in love with this vibrant blue asymmetrical dress by Laila Azhar. The dress is rather simple and doesn’t have too many distracting details and that’s exactly what I love about dresses. A defined, clean silhouette outdoes a ruffled, over-the-top dress anytime… at least in my book (doesn’t automatically mean I can’t love a complex dress from time).

LuLu*s Once in a Blue Moon Dress

This one shoulder dress by LuLu*s might not be silk and the gathering on this frock might go to the right side bodice, but the color, cut and twisted details reveal the inspiration behind this dress very clearly. I think it’s a great budget-friendly alternative for fashionistas trying to save some cash.

A few weeks ago Lauren Conrad attended the VH1 Divas event looking absolutely adorable in a forest green Alice + Olivia sequin dress which she accessorized with a simple diamond bracelet and black satin Louboutin peep-toes. The gorgeous dress had a cute keyhole detail in the back and sparkled heavily under the flashing bulbs. Such a stunning dress!

I noticed I haven’t featured anything else than shoes on Real vs. Steal lately, so today I break the pattern and feature a dress again. The Alexander Wang vest dress below might be already a couple of seasons old (Fall 2008 to be exact), but it’s a great dress nonetheless and would make a great office dress with a turtleneck underneath, don’t you agree?

BB Dakota Luncheon Dress

Looking at the Alexander Wang frock above and this vest dress by BB Dakota is like playing “Spot the difference!“. Both dresses look almost like twins except that one costs $700 and the other just $76. Awesome find, right?

3 weeks ago Taylor Swift made a TV appearance on The View where she openly spoke about the infamous Kanye West VMAs incident. While most people were interested in all the drama and the juicy details, I found myself being captivated by Taylor’s stunning turquoise strapless jacquard dress by Rebecca Taylor which had a gold metallic jacquard finish and a cute oversized bow detail on the bodice.

Do the Louboutin pumps below look familiar to you? That’s probably because you’ve seen Britney Spears wearing these in her music video to “If U Seek Amy” (watch video here). I already loved these shoes in black, but the orange version is just killer! Such an eye-catcher.

Dollhouse “Soleil” Ruffle Pumps

I already featured these ruffle pumps by Dollhouse the first time I wrote about the Louboutin pumps, but I just happened to stumble upon this amazing orange version only available at DSW and just had to share. Isn’t the vibrant orange color simply amazing? These shoes will spice up even the most boring outfit. However, you don’t know the best thing yet: The pumps are currently marked down 30% and cost only $54.98! Awesome, huh? Be fast and make sure you don’t miss out on this great deal because these heels will sell like hot cakes!
