Reality Chic: Looks for less

I used to think black and blue could never go together, until I discovered how to wear it! Black shoes and navy pants, not my jam, but bright blue shoes that stick out and make a statement, totally my jam.

This week, I wanted to put together an outfit similar to the one above. I had seen it trending on Polyvore but wasn’t able to find some of the pieces. So with that as inspiration, I created a similar look below! 

Black and Blue

Marc Jacobs long sleeve top $699 / Miss Selfridge black flared skirt $44 / Yves Saint Laurent patent heels $875 / Marc by Marc Jacobs mini bag $278 / J.Crew pave jewelry $125/ Nugaard Designs chain jewelry $173
TOTAL: $2,194
Ain’t nobody got time for that price! Here’s how I did it for way less:

Gap long sleeve top $22.95/ old H&M skirt (similar) $10/ old Candie’s blue heels (similar) $19.99/ Coach cross body bag (similar) $69/ Yunikelley Designs crystal pave link bracelet $50/ Glam Grab necklace (similar) $24
TOTAL: $195.94
See ladies, it CAN be done! You can look stylish and runway chic without breaking the bank. The shirt and top can be mixed and matched with SO many other pieces, as can the jewelry and purse. I love having a few statement items (like the shoes) but won’t break the bank because I know they can’t be worn very often.

Don’t forget to look for coupons and deals. Gap sends emails what feels like daily often and Glam Grab has auctions weekly. And of course, you receive 20% off Yunikelley Designs when you enter the code “hiccups” at checkout!

I love getting inspiration from all of you too, and can’t wait to see what kinds of looks for less you’ve come up with! If you want to share, feel free to link up below!
