Writing for a fashion blog is probably the best excuse for hours and hours of cyberstalking Shopbop. God, I love Shopbop! Their huge selection, the various price points from super cheap to super steep, the easy navigation and site design, the editorial section, their stylists, models and did I mention international shipping is free with orders of $100+? See, there are tons of reasons to love Shopbop. And when I checked their latest arrivals today I found yet one more to add to the list which is the styled look below. I adore the color combo, the layers, the easiness of the whole look; well, basically everything about it! Absolute perfection!
- TOP: Alice + Olivia Sleeveless Drape Wrap Cardigan, $176
- SHOES: L.A.M.B. Quest Platform Sandals, $295
- BELT: Elegantly Waisted Twist Belt, $137
- SHORTS: Alice + Olivia Butterfly Shorts, $188
D’uh! Of course, how could I forget the prices?! All of these gorgeous items cost more than what I’d normally spend on tops, belts, shoes and shorts. So what’s a girl with a limited budget to do? Easy, I put my look-4-less skills at test and tried to recreate Shopbop’s lovely look on a more budget-friendly basis. I’m quite happy with the outcome; it’s not a 100% match and not as charming as Shopbop’s version, but the overall look & feel is almost the same and price-wise it’s totally doable.
