Buy this not that: Fashion Dupes

Hey guys!

So after a lot of trouble my blog is finally working again after switching to WordPress.org.   At one point my whole blog disappeared and I thought I lost everything! Not that it’s working I like it so far, but I’ll let you guys know what I think about it in a few days after I’ve had the chance to play around with it.

Since I link so many products on here I know most of the products at my favorite stores at any given time and I’ve come to notice quite a few pieces offered at various stores for different prices.  Some of these are the same exact product and others are very similar. Keep reading to find the best deals!

Dillard’s $41.60

I’ve noticed Mod Cloth and Dillard’s carry a lot of the same items and 99% of the time Dillard’s is cheaper! I always do a quick check on Dillard’s before I buy anything from Mod Cloth to make sure I’m getting the best deal!

2)  Bright Romper: Save $15.99

15+ Carry-On Essentials

Spring break will be here before you know it so I came up with a list of carry-on essentials to make your flight more enjoyable. Let me know if there’s anything not on this list you would include!

carry-on essentials, travel guide, travel in style, fashion, packing list, styledbysteph96

1) Travel Tote: Obviously the most important item on this list is a nice sized bag you can fit everything in. I loved the bright color of the one I picked out, and it easily attaches to a suitcase for convenient transportation.

2) Makeup Bag: If you’re carrying any makeup (I would carry a little even if you don’t plan to wear any on the flight in case your other luggage gets lost or delayed) a cosmetics case is essential to keep it from spilling. In the makeup case I would carry oil blotters, lipbalm, concealer, and facial towelettes if it’s overnight for actually using while you’re on the plane. I would also include foundation, eyeliner, mascara, and one lipstick for a backup as I stated earlier. Continue Reading

Let me know if you like this format or the old one better! Also, I’d love to hear suggestions for future articles!february wishlist, polyvore, red and pink, styledbysteph961) Yes Please: I’ve heard so many great things about this book, and I’m always looking for new books to read.

Glee Inspired Outfits

In honor of Naya Rivera’s birthday yesterday and the final season of Glee here is how you can recreate Rachel, Quinn, and Santana’s look!

Rachel Berry

rachel berry, glee outfit ideas, styledbysteph96, lea michelleRachel was very nerdy looking in the beginning of the show but now she knows how to look preppy without over doing it. Mod Cloth is the best store to find pieces similar to what she wears in the show.

"Glee Inspired Outfits: Rachel Berry" by styledbysteph96 on Polyvore

White Tank, Black Coat,Luxury Divas Black Over The Knee Knitted Socks,Hot Kiss Juniors Flounce Houndstooth Knit Skirt, Bow Flats

If you look on the Fashion of Glee Blog, they find the exact items each character wears in every episode. The only downside is that most of the items are designer and therefore very expensive.

Rachel has worn hounds tooth printed pieces many times on the show including the pilot, and almost always is wearing knee highs and flats.

Quinn Fabray

quinn fabray outfit ideas, glee outfits, glee fashion, dianna agron, styledbystephAlmost all of Quinn’s clothes are from Anthropologie, but again Mod Cloth is a much more affordable alternative. Quinn is definitely a girly-girl; she is almost always wearing a skirt or dress, and it’s usually in a quirky print or muted colors with a bright jacket over it.

Zeagoo Women’s Folding Sleeve Office Blazer
, Black Heart Handbag, Oxford Heels, Lace-Trim Socks, Heart Print Top Skater Skirt

Maybe I’m biased, but I love this outfit so much! 😉 The top is actually a heart print, but from a distance it looks like polka dots which Quinn wears pretty often. I don’t normally like socks and heels but I added some with a tiny lace ruffle because I saw her wearing similar ones in multiple outfits and loved it. I would stick to a small ruffle though so it doesn’t look like kid’s socks.

Santana Lopez

Santana’s outfits are too revealing for school in my opinion, but they are perfect for a night out! Charlotte Russe and Macys both carry a ton of body-con dresses.

In honor of Taylor Swift turning 25 today here’s how you can recreate her signature stye. Also only a couple of more days until the giveaway is over! Let me know if y’all want more of these types of posts and who you would like me to feature next.

taylor swift, plaid outfits, fall style, style,  styledbysteph96, street styleTaylor loves plaid and bright outfits. If you look closely you’ll notice in almost every outfit she has a boxy bag that she holds low on her arm so I included those in the outfits as well.

To get her look mix plaid and equally bright preppy pieces. I included oxford heels since she can have a very classic/ retro style and likes vintage pieces.

Gift Guide Part Two

Let me know which set is your favorite! Find me on polyvore:http://styledbysteph96.polyvore.com/

Read my first gift guide by clicking here.

gift guide, christmas 2014, jet setter, travel, girly, styledbysteph96Notebook, Travel Jewelry Case, Eye Mask, Travel Cases, Luggage Tag, Portable Phone Charger, Tote Bag, Mini Curling Wand, India Poster, London Poster, Paris Poster

I think the mini curling wand (a mini flat iron would be great too!)  is probably my favorite item on this set because it’s not something a lot of people own and hair products tend to take up a lot of room when packing. It would probably work a lot better for girls with short-medium hair but a mini flat iron would probably work fine for all girls.

I also would love the  travel jewelry case since jewelry tends to get tangled so easily and it would also work for my dorm where I don’t have a ton of room for a jewelry holder.

OOTD: Game Day Outfits

Surprise! I have a twin. Can you tell which one is me?

Hey guys!

Today I have a mini (only one picture) OOTD post. Both of the dresses are from Mod Cloth. While Mod Cloth is a bit pricey their clothes are definitely high quality, and in my opinion, worth the money.

Surprise! I have a twin. Can you tell which one is me?
