Luxe For Less Shopping Tips

September 6, 2013 by  
Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds


Like most people I have a keen appreciation for designer luxe items whether it’s amazing clothing in my favorite magazines, stunning photos in personal style blogs or the trendy moms at the local mall.  But more than anything I try to find inspiration from the finer things in life.  I love scouring flea markets, Goodwill stores, clearance racks – anywhere that will allow me to get the luxe for less and I’m all over it!  For the most part it’s focused around my love of fashion but it really applies to anything or anyone I may be shopping for in my life.  The thrill of finding something for way less than it was originally priced is simply unmatched. But finding pieces for less can easily open us up to impulse shopping so over the years I’ve come up with a few rules of shopping that I swear by:

Don’t be afraid of the junior department.  These are the stores and departments that WILL carry those trendy items seen all over magazines for way less, leaving you more money for those important investment pieces.

Find out what days they do mark downs and get there early.  I take about five days out of the month (sometimes even more lol) to hit up the stores for new items and shop the mark downs.  Some stores will even honor the sale if you happen to buy within a few days of the mark down.

Consider swapping with friends and family.  What’s old to you maybe something your friend or cousin might have been dying to wear and vice versa.

Consider some easy DIY projects.  Lots and lots of designer pieces are detail focused and can easily be recreated.

Know when to invest. I know this one may be a bit counterintuitive but I do know and appreciate that there will be items that need to be investment pieces. The criteria for me is that investment pieces have to fluidly go with just about everything in my closet and need to be easily dressed up or down.  So invest in a good bag and classic must-have items like a leather jacket, trench or a good pair of boots or heels.  These items will be worn year after year and never go out of style so they’re worth saving up for.

Below are some of my favorite outfits that I bought following these rules.

1. This purple dress was only $5 and I’ve been able to wear it so many different ways. 2. This outfit is a perfect example of mixing some high low pieces.  The DVF heels go with a ton of different outfits and I knew I could wear them year after year. The beige wrap dress is a no brainer and only cost me $25 and I’ve had this denim jacket for years and wear it ALL the time. Same goes with the clutch. 3. I built this outfit around my favorite $6 chambray top and the entire look was under $50 including the shoes.

 

Hope you found these shopping tips useful 🙂

Celeb Style: Recreating Elizabeth Taylor’s Old Hollywood Elegance

November 14, 2012 by  
Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds


Lifetime’s much anticipated Liz & Dick debuts November 25 and I can’t think of a better way to enjoy my Thanksgiving time off then to watch a movie about one of Hollywood’s most tumultuous and romantic relationships (If my math is right, Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton were married, divorced, and remarried).  Sure there’s a lot of hype about Lindsay Lohan in the lead role, but what I’m dying to see more then anything is the recreation of Elizabeth Taylor’s over-the-top glamourous style!  Always elegant and dripping in diamonds, her outfits screamed Hollywood elite. For the upcoming holiday season there’s no better time to recreate the old Hollywood elegance epitomized by Liz (for less of course!).  Check out some easy ways to recreate that old Hollywood elegance below:

Rhinestones, diamonds and jewelry with sparkle and glitz instantly give any outfit an elegant and expensive look.  Pair them with jeans and a white button down for a modern/glam vibe.

Red lips and dramatic eyes are a must!  When choosing your lipstick look for colors that complement your skin tone. For warm, tanned skin, go for an orangey red. If you’re pale with rosy undertones, pick a more pinkish red.  If you’re still in doubt try a true red mixed with a lipliner – it will look good on any skin tone – and make sure to balance the bold look with bold lashes and dramatic eyeliner!

Faux fur is a no brainer!  Whether a vest, scarf or coat, you can’t go wrong and it will never go out of style!

A chic sheath dress is an iconic wardrobe staple and one that Elizabeth flaunted many times (sometimes with a tiara – Come on!  How can any woman not swoon over the very idea of wearing a tiara just for the sake of wearing one!).

Lindsay Lohan stars as the legendary dame Elizabeth Taylor alongside Grant Bowler as celebrated actor Richard Burton in the Lifetime Original Movie Liz & Dick, making its world premiere Sunday, November 25, at 9pm ET on Lifetime.  Based on the true story of the couple’s passionate and tumultuous love affair Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton were Hollywood royalty and their fiery romance — often called “the marriage of the century” — was the most notorious, publicized and celebrated love affair of its day.  http://www.mylifetime.com/movies/liz-and-dick
