I’m currently trying to build/extend my jewelry collection which is a rather tough task since I just can’t get my mind used to spending hundreds of dollars on costume jewelry. For example, I really adore this pavé link bracelet by J.Crew, but $125 seems like a lot for a bit of shiny base metal, don’t you agree? That’s why I’ve been on the hunt for something more budget-friendly with a similar design…

bebe Chainlink & Crystal Bracelet

… And I made a great find at bebe. Their Chainlink & Crystal Bracelet isn’t a 100% match because it has only a few pavé’d links but for a 1/4 of the J.Crew price you’ll get the same look without breaking the bank.

You can love or hate Kim Kardashian all you want, but there’s no denying that some of her outfits are absolutely superb! I’m not quite sure if this is mainly due to Kim having a really good stylist, but whatever it is, it works, so please don’t stop, Kimmy! Case in point: Kim’s body-con getup at Teyana Taylor’s VII Listening Party which consisted of a creamy white high-waist pencil skirt, a matching tight turtleneck sweater, taupe heels, soft waves and understated makeup. Doesn’t she look just perfect here? The sex appeal of this outfit lies within the curvaceous silhouette while the high-necked top and midi-length skirt bring some much needed elegance and class to Kim’s look. The minute I spotted this gorgeous outfit of Kim, I knew I would have to do a look 4 less of it. Soooo, what do you think? Is my budget-friendly take on Kim’s look on point or not so much?
