Get The Look...

This is something new that I will be starting on a weekly basis. (fingers crossed lol) Sometimes I receive emails from friends, sending me a pictures of an item a celebrity had worn, and asking if I could find for them. Sometimes I'm succesful (very few times, Im not), and even sometimes I can find the LOOK for LESS!!! I mean why pay all that money? When you can recreate the same look for much less.


This Dress has been HOTTTTT on the Red Carpet! Taraji P. Henson, Debra Messing, Lisa Rinna, Britney Spears and Aubrey O'Day have all rocked the same Black Halo dress but in different colors (thankfully all at different times). The original dress retails for $345.00, if you are balling and want the original you can purchase it at www.saks.com


But if you are a fashionista on a budget (like moi), here's an alternative! Check out Alloy's version of the dress for $49.50 - www.alloy.com

What do you think???


Now this picture was ALL OVER the internet yesterday, Kanyeeezy and his new Boo Amber Rose shopping in L.A.! People were clamoring to find out how to recreate this exact look, (which is VERY SCARY). So I decided to recreate a more subdued (and grown up) version of Amber Rose's look (lol for those of you who were clamoring *disclaimer I didn't care for the look at all, the cropped top, the elastic waist band shorts nahhh but the shoes were to die for*).

Now the vest and the purse were virtually impossible to find - so I will assume she picked up the vest at a little boutique, or a vintage store, etc. same goes with the purse. Funny the denim shorts were easy (surprised?) and so were the shoes. 

The shorts were Current/Elliot Fontaine Denim Short $164.00 www.ronherman.com - the shoes oooooh the shoes from Spring/Summer 09 Bottega Venetta Collection $950.00 www.bottegavenetta.com


So this is the Anti-Amber Rose look....

Drapey Vest $42.00 www.urbanoutfitters.com, White tank top $6.50 www.wetseal.com, Indigo denim Cycling Short $50.00 – www.topshop.com, Tribal Hobo $54.95 www.purseboutique.com, Chrissy Leather Cut-out sandal $159.00 www.bebe.com, and The big splurge are the clear oversized sunglasses by Balenciaga $399.00 www.farfetch.com

Yes, I saw this nonsense yesterday and said to myself "What does she have on???".....until I got to the shoes!!! Love them....but I heart your ensemble with drapey vest and longer shorts!!! Young & Vibrant yet Classy!

And can someone tell me who Amber Rose is? Am I supposed to know her???????????

This is a GREAT post!! Loving the anti-Amber Rose look because the original was a hot mess! I would totally rock this look. I'm also loving the knock-off dress from Alloy. Might have to cop that! Great find!
