Up until recently British designer J.W. Anderson hasn’t been on my fashion radar, but now that I’ve seen his latest womenswear collections, especially the bags and the shoes, I immediately subscribed to his various social media channels in order to never miss out on his future creations again. But let me give you an example of J.W. Anderson’s unique aesthetic first: look at these gorgeous asymmetrical pointy ruffle booties below! I love the boldness of the ruffles and the fact that the asymmetric arrangement forms a forward-facing arrow when both feet are standing next to each other. What I’m not loving though is the price: $840 in retail and even the sale price of $570.99 is still pretty hefty!

Office “Luscious” Ruffle Ankle Boots

If you’re searching for a similar look, check out these ruffle booties by Office. They are heeled and the ruffle arrangement is not quite as extreme and bold as on the J.W. Anderson original, but for £50 (sale price!) these are a pretty fab alternative to the pricey real deal! Also available in black suede.

Budget Look – Vacay Mode

by Irina on April 29, 2016

It’s almost May which means it’s time to start thinking summer wardrobe. The weather here has been so depressing lately that I needed some sort of fashionable pick-me-up to lighten my mood, so I started dreaming about a summer vacation in Greece or Italy and all the stylish summer outfits I could wear there. And just like that a new budget look was born! This outfit has a strong focus on fringes and ruffles, a cute and casual summer look. Do you approve?

I haven’t been paying much attention to Ralph Lauren in the last few years, but when I accidentally landed on their website a few days ago I was amazed by the amount of beautiful designs I spotted there. One of my favorites would have to be this minimalistic LWD from the Ralph Lauren Black Label Collection. I love the crisp white color in combination with the clean, structured lines and the soft wavy hem ruffles! It’s such an elegant cocktail dress! And quite expensive too at $998!

Closet Sleeveless Dress with Frill Hem

HOT DEAL: Spend $140 and enjoy free 2-day shipping at ASOS! Use promo code “EXPRESSUSA” at checkout. Valid on US orders only. Cannot be used in conjunction with another promo code. Maximum spend: $848.

So I bought this exact dress by Closet a few months ago at ASOS without even knowing that it was designer-inspired. Of course, I bought it full-price (d’uh!) because I was dead certain it would be sold out in my size before it could get it on sale (obviously I was wrong!). Now I own quite a few Closet dresses already and let me tell you: they are all beautiful and very well-made dresses that are totally worth their moderate price (currently under $40! Score!). And while this body-con dress is not too forgiving figure-wise, it does look amazing on when you’re in good shape and looks especially beautiful against tanned skin. Plus, it’s also available in a lovely green color.

With all the glitzy holiday parties just around the corner, how wonderful would it be to snag this red carpet look from non other than the lovely Charlize Theron? It’s the perfect modern ball gown with its sleek silhouette, deep V-neckline, and its absolutely perfect bow detail at the waist. The dress falls somewhere between goddess and princess and the accessories really pull it all together. The trick to looking polished instead of in costume is choosing the right shoes, bag, jewelry and headwear. Charlize nails this 1920’s style for the 21st century by pairing her stunning gown with minimal nude heels giving off a hint of shimmer, a beautiful antique looking brooch at the waist, and a gorgeous headband that gives a nod to the Gatsby-inspired outfit. Wondering how you can pull this off for your upcoming gala? Take a peek at some of the budget-friendly finds we’ve found below.

A couple of months back we did a post on Camilla Belle’s gorgeous Max Azria Silk mini dress, but at the time we didn’t have a steal version for you lovely folks. I gushed over the color and the shape, the ruffle, the slit, and how perfect it all was for summer. One thing not so worship-worthy was and is the price. Also unfortunate is the fact that the dress is sold out. No wonder, really, considering how, well belle Miss Belle looks wearing it.

LuLu*s Miss Mitzy Mint Dress

Leave it to LuLu*s to feature a stellar knockoff of our Max Azria frock. They have the best mix of brightly colored, fun, summer dresses, don’t you think? Sure, their “Miss Mitzy Mint” dress is more of a turquoise than a green, but I think this bluer color is probably more universally flattering than the sea green of the original. This is the perfect dress to take you from the heat of a summer day to the very different heat of a summer night. Only $39!
