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!

April Showers: Rainy Day Outfit Ideas

Hey guys!

It’s been raining at least a few times a week where I live which can make it hard to stay cute and dry. Let me know which outfit below is your favorite!

Red Rain Coat, Necklace, Black Umbrella ,Crop Top, High-Waisted Jeans, Matte Rain Boots

Personally, I’m not a fan of wearing full length rain boots unless I know it’s going to be pouring all day.  I love how this ankle boot version is matte so it doesn’t even look like rain boots! Plus tall rain boots can be too hot in the spring and summer. Continue Reading

Steal That Style: Selena Gomez Inspired Looks

Hey guys!

My new laptop finally got here, thank you so much for being patient while I was gone! I love Selena’s sense of style so I picked four of my favorite spring looks she wore and recreated them for cheaper. Let me know what you think of these looks!

1) Boho Skirt

This is probably my all time favorite outfit of hers! So cute and unique! I feel like this is more likely to be something she picked out rather than her stylist since all of the shots are just of her filling up her gas tank- she wasn’t attending any event as far as I know. I love the way she knotted the top too!

Hey guys!

Today I recreated some of the looks I liked from Sonia Rykiel’s Spring 2015 Ready to Wear Collection using more affordable items. What’s your favorite spring collection? I’d love to hear suggestions for other collections to recreate!

This dress from ASOS has the same drop waist fit and stripes but I think the blue and white are more appropriate for spring.
