There has been a downright flood of sexy tops in the blogosphere lately and while I admittedly love the concept of super deep v-neck lace-up shirts or really tiny lace-trimmed bustiers, I don’t see many of those tops working out in the real world. Especially not during daytime. This crochet lace crop top by Asilio however has what I call sophisticated sexiness and it’s a perfect example for the symbiosis of style and sexiness. The “White Walls” top is sexy without being flashy and it shows and hides skin in just the right amount . I’m also absolutely in love with the intricate crochet pattern. So pretty, right? Too bad this beauty of a top costs $165 (now $116)!

Forever 21 Ornate Crochet Boxy Top

Luckily, there’s no need to break the bank on this one, because Forever 21 has a just as gorgeous Asilio look for less dupe available right at your fingertips! The pattern of the F21 version is offset by a few inches as you can see, but that really doesn’t take away from the beauty of this lovely top. And did I mention it costs only $29.90 instead of $165? Steal deal alert! But you better hurry, I’m sure these Asilio dupes will be sold out in no time!

It’s mostly all about high end designer fashion here on this blog, but once in a while a trend is born right among us in the budget fashion sector. Case in point: these vividly blue Zara slingback high heel sandals. I feel like I’ve seen these strappy heels a thousand times on Instagram this year and I’ve been obsessed with them ever since I first saw them on the Zara website. They weren’t expensive at $79.90, but unfortunately these heels sold out so fast that many didn’t get a chance to buy them in the first place, me included. I then tried to hunt them down on eBayebay, but the asking prices of $100+ (for used shoes!) were absolutely ridiculous! So I was slowly coming to terms that I would have to let these beauties go. Luckily, I was wrong!

If you missed out on the Zara heels and are not willing to shell out more than the original price, you’ve come to the right place. Because I just happened to stumble upon these spot-on Zara dupes at Missguided. They’re absolutely identical in terms of design and color, plus they’re $40 cheaper than the Zara version. Personally, it’s all about the vibrant blue color for me, but these heels are also available in nude, black and berry red faux suede if these colors are more to your liking.
