I am currently totally crushing on everything black and white. I also happen to have a total crush on the beautiful Annabelle from the fabulous personal style blog VIVALUXURY. And one of her recent monochrome outfits. I mean, how amazing does she look here? So seductive yet still very classy and elegant. Absolutely love the look! That’s why I decided to recreate it for you on a budget-friendly level. What do you think of my style blogger look for less? Did I nail it?

I remember Rag & Bone most notably for their amazing shoes, but after seeing this cool yet preppy yet sexy plunging v-neck sweater here, I think I might have to start taking a closer look at their clothing line as well. What I really like about this sweater is the juxtaposition of the preppy design against the super sexy deep v-neck. But would I be willing to spend $395 on this – admittedly very stylish – sweater? Probably not.

Missguided “Eleonora” V Neck Stripes Jumper

Alright, so this Missguided jumper doesn’t have the same deep v-neck, I know, the overall design however is still very similar to the Rag & Bone Talia Sweater. Plus, it retails for a very wallet-friendly £19.99 and comes in either cream or a beautiful lavender color (my personal favorite!).

UPDATE: This post has been updated on March 19, 2014. Scroll down to see the new adds.

I usually don’t deem flip flops dressy or fashionable, but as so often Chanel once again proves me wrong. How lovely do these PVC thong sandals look? I really like the classic color combo of black and ivory here and also the Camellia flower embellishment – Coco Chanel’s signature flower – which is such a nice way to dress up a pair of plain ole’ flip flops, don’t you agree? And how cute does the CC logo link look? Such a sweet little detail to add! I’m not sure how much these flip flops retailed for, but I think it must’ve been around $550-$600. For a pair of PVC shoes! Yeah. Chanel ain’t for penny pinchers, people!

Nine West “Frizzell” Flower Flip Flops

UPDATE (02/17/2014): The flower on these Nine West flip flops might not look quite as beautiful and delicate as on the Chanel ones, but they’re also only $49 and come in lovely colors such as white, yellow, coral and light blue.

Target Jelly Flower Flip Flops

Obviously, most of us can’t or won’t spend that kind of money on a pair of jelly shoes, but how about $13? Well, that’s more like it, right? Check out these thong sandals by Target which look very similar to Chanel’s Camellia flip flops. Of course, they are missing Chanel’s superb quality (and the cute gold CC-logo), but for $12.99 they’re a fab alternative to the pricey Chanel version.

OH. MY. GOD! How AH-mazing are these crystal studded suede strappy heels by Jimmy Choo? I am officially obsessed! It’s the perfect evening heel – delicate, sexy and classy! The only downside? Well, you’d have to lay down $1.450 before you can call them your own. Le sigh!

I’m such a fan of tortoise! Like big time! I have so many tortoise sunglasses at home, but tortoise shoes? Nope. So naturally, when I first spotted these gorgeous tortoise pointed toe stilletos by footwear designer legend Manolo Blahnik I instantly fell in love. And I guess I’m not the only as model Miranda Kerr seems to love her tortoise Blahnik heels just as much and has worn them quite often already.

Diane von Furstenberg “Bethany” Tortoise Patent Dress Pumps

The Manolos are admittedly not the priciest pair of designer shoes we’ve ever featured on this blog, but if you can save half the price, why not? These tortoise pumps by Diane von Furstenberg are not exactly wallet-friendly at $325, but they do look super similar to the Blahnik heels and are still a good $270 cheaper. So which of the shoes would be your pick?
