Dress for Less: Inspired By Clueless



  Tuesday, November 30, 2010 at 8:15 AM   |    Post a Comment     Tagged:,,,, 
One of my favorite movies is Clueless starring Alicia Silverstone. What many people don't know is that it is a modern interpretation of the novel Emma by Jane Austen, which was also made into a film starring Gwyneth Paltrow (among other versions).  One of the things I love about the film is the fashion, Cher wears so many crazy outfits but a lot of them can still be worn now and will look current. 

I decided to do a Dress for Less based on my favorite outfit of hers, the maroon dress. It was hard to find a good shot so you'll have to settle for these bad ones. I wish I could find heels the same color as the dress, but these were the perfect shape to match hers. These never come out as good as I imagine them in my head since its always impossible to find exactly what you're looking for. Hopefully it's not too horrible.

Sleeveless Dress - Tibi from The Outnet $108
Short Sleeve Dress - Mango from ASOS $94.65
Long Sleeve Dress - YesStyle $30
Heels - Forever 21 $22.80
Pink Ribbon (for belt) - Jo Ann Fabrics $1.99
TOTAL SLEEVELESS: $132.79
TOTAL SHORT SLEEVE: $119.44
TOTAL LONG SLEEVE:  $54.79

P.S. Did you know that Calvin Klein did a remake of the white dress she wore? Buy it HERE for only $916 ;) (haha...no thanks)

  35. I love Clueless! My favorite is when she wears that slinky little dress on her date, and her dad asks what she's wearing. "A dress." "Says who?" "Calvin Klein."

    Definitely watching that tonight.
