Scalloped

Update: This post has been updated on August 29, 2017. Scroll down to see the new add.

I don’t actively follow swimwear fashion, so for me to take notice of a swimwear trend, it really takes a lot of hype and medial exposure (yes, I have seen you, Triangl bikinis!) or a very, very beautiful bikini/swimsuit. Marysia‘s scalloped “Antibes” swimwear is easily both: beautiful and dearly loved by celebs and online influencers worldwide. The scalloped swimsuits and bikinis regularly get a fair share of social media exposure and are universally flattering for women of all shapes and sizes. Now if only they weren’t so darn expensive, the “Antibes” bikini set will set you back $282.

Update (04/12/2017): Found spot-on Marysia Antibes look-alike bikinis at Rosegal and various other Asian-based online-shops. They come in multiple colors and designs and most of them are super cheap, but fit and sizing can be off sometimes when it comes to Asian clothing, so be aware of this possible issue and consider ordering various sizes (especially if your top and bottom aren’t 100% proportional).

Shoe designer Giuseppe Zanotti is a well-known man on this blog because a) his shoes are absolutely loved by celebrities and b) because his shoes are often copied. And while it’s not cool to copy, I really can’t blame the copycats because shoes as fabulous as these scalloped suede lace-up sandals need to be brought at more affordable price points. At least that’s how I think. My obsession for these Zanotti heels started when I first saw Aimee Song from Song of Style rocking these high-heeled beauties in various of her outfits. I just love the delicate nature of these! They’re incredibly sexy yet still elude a sense of romance. But here’s the deal-breaker: they cost a whopping $1.095 and are pretty much sold out everywhere.

See by Chloé may be the more affordable secondary collection following Chloé, but $595 is still quite pricey for a handbag. The Poya Vintage Leather Satchel is rendered perfectly; with girly and feminine detailing yet a sturdy structure. It is the perfect go-to satchel for everyday use and it makes luxury appear to be so effortless. I really like this caramel color as it is particularly neutral and compliments various colors and patterns. For an affordable take on the “Poya”, be sure to check out the unique option below!

ASOS Leather Scallop Edge Satchel

This Leather Scallop Edge Satchel by ASOS may not be an exact copy of the handbag above, but it maintains very similar detailing which ultimately is the highlight of the bag. This satchel features a scallop trim and gold-hued metal clasp closures. It also has a shoulder strap giving it an extra edgy vibe. One can pair this with really anything, and pull off a simple, elegant, and casual look. It is also made from real leather and is priced quite nicely at $71.27 (sale price)! Plus, this bag is also available in black!

I’m a sucker for white dresses. They are just perfect for summer and you’ll get an instant mood lift just from looking at them. When I first discovered this Marc by Marc Jacobs tiered halterneck dress I was madly in love.

We all first saw this dress on Blair Waldorf (played by Leighton Meester) in an episode of Gossip Girl called “Summer Kind Of Wonderful“. Leighton looked absolutely amazing and until today this look belongs in my top 3 of all her Gossip Girl outfits. Paris Hilton came second and British soap star Emma Rigby has worn this beautiful dress as well.

BB Dakota “The Sassy” Dress

I’v been looking for ages to find a look-a-like dress of the Joelle frock and finally found it in the form of this BB Dakota dress. But at the time I tried to place my order, it was already sold out. Boohoo! However, weeks later I now found the same dress elsewhere for $75. The BB Dakota dress might be missing the cute front-bow, but otherwise both dresses are practically identical.
