Dress For Less: Dream Outfit

Okay, here we go with a cheaper version of the outfit I posted yesterday! It obviously isn't exactly the same, but it has the same feeling.  If you forgot, the other outfit was over $4000, this outfit is under $175. I still prefer the other one though, sad. I wanted to use this blazer from ASOS, but it was $94, and the one I used was only $28...so in this case, cheaper wins.

Top: Alloy $22.80
Blazer: Forever 21 $27.80
Bag: Alloy $19.99
Shorts: ASOS $44.82
Wedges: Forever 21 $26.80
Ring: La Dama $30
TOTAL: $172.21

  5. This is so great- I love "look for less" posts, but I haven't seen it done quite like this before. The YSL ring is fabulous and I can't believe you found such a similar affordable item. Following!

  17. i think you did a stellar job finding a cheaper version of that last outfit. A+

  18. the arty ring knock off isn't half bad - had me fooled at first!
    I think some of the pieces in the dream outfit just work better though - specifically the top (love the neckline) and the bag (since it's my fave color in the whole wide world)

  28. I think this is a great rendition from yesterday's outfit created from net a porter finds! Aside from the leather shorts which were some what affordable from yesterday's post, the rest were just out of most people's price range! I love posts like this and the Dama ring is fantastic! I've been debating on getting the YSL Arty ring and think the Dama will be just fine! So glad I discovered your blog!

  35. Oh my gosh, love this post next to the last one! Except for the La Dama ring - way too much of a copy, and a horrible one :-/
    Do more posts like these two - I am def a fan!!! xx

  36. I love the shorts!

    I can't believe that ring - I'm all about the YSL one in this instance! Great alternative for those who can't afford the other one though.

  37. I really like the top and the wedges. I would totally wear them :)

    Boys have always been really confusing.. until now! Maybe it is my first healthy adult relationship (as opposed to the relationships I've been having in my 20's when we are really just trying to figure things out). Whatever it is, he is great and it is WONDERFUL to not feel confused. If he is having trouble deciding, live your life, get on with your bad self. If it works out with him, it works out with him. If it doesn't, you didn't pine away to long waiting for nothing.
