I found this on My Theresa.com and fell in love as seen above and also my #girlcrush Olivia Palermo below and had to add it to my closet with this clean classic everyday chic look but without the price! So as I’ve been consolidating my wardrobe and types of items in it I am leaning much more towards classic pieces this lead me to recreate this look for MUCH LESS.
The white asymmetrical top from My Theresa was $1190 alone – jeans by 3XI are $298 and the hot pink mule shoes are a cool $550 = OUCH! That is $2100 and change. Ok so lets see what I can do……
Here Is The Breakdown
Need: White Top, Red/Hot Pink Shoes, Frayed Jeans, Minimal Accessories…….
The Classic White Top OK now this one is pretty simple I have a few in my closet I really like that were under $30 great “goto” places are ZARA,
FOREVER 21, and some from CMEO and Nordstrom $75 range. This great dupe is from POSHMARK only $60.00 pretty close to the origianl one right?
Now for the Jeans – google search lead me right to Bloomingdale.COM and they have some great one’s about $100 – $150
DIY to try – I have taken some jeans from AE and ZARA and used my MARTHA STEWART FREY SCISSORS or even better the WALMART SHREDDER SCISSORS only $9.95 and make my own! It takes some practice and patience but works great – maybe even use an old pair or get cheap ones at ROSS first to try it out! (Try on Scrap piece of denim first) .
Now for the shoes.…… I am happy and so grateful that I have a adorable pair of GUCCI MULES – that I got after a 30day detox / cleanse I did and it was my prize for completion so lucky me! These are a definate sprulge but “I love great shoes and handbags – the rest is smoke and mirrors”! You can treat yourself too and get the same pair at
However, normaly I shop more wallet friendly versions and these are great looking choices STEVE MADDEN @NORDSTROMS $62.99!
Or these beauties which come in black and red from TARGET at a cool $34.99
I have my handbags all set so my outfit will look like this but you can buy the look for $200! WHAT A SCORE! Shoot I could even look for a white purse too – I dont have one of those.! Below are my choices and what I’m wearing to Bethesda, MD tomorrow for some meetings and alittle window shopping. I will top it off with big black shades, a red lip and ooodles style – LOL. #EUROCHIC “Like look at me I dont even have to try” say it out loud in Italian accent. LOL
This look is going to Europe with me for sure in September – I hope you like it and this post share your thoughts below – The outfit goes live this week so check my instagram feed! BTW – hitting Bloomingdales tomorrow to grab those jeans baby!
