Look for Less: Kendall & Kylie’s Dior Technologic Sunglasses

Happy Sunday, friends! How was everyone’s weekend? I’m about to nurse a casino hangover at brunch with my parents, but as Sunday tradition dictates, I first wanted to share a designer dupe with you. This one’s HEAVILY discounted, so get excited!

Forget the Dior So Real sunglasses, everyone’s favorite statement sunnies seem to be the Dior Technologics. Bloggers and celebs alike – Chiara Ferragni, Kendall and Kylie – have been spotted rocking these bad boys. I’m not a huge K&K fan, but they are definitely a barometer for what items are on-trend and soon to be coveted by the masses.

Kendall and Kylie Jenner Dior Technologic Sunglasses Dupe


More sleek than the So Reals, I think these would be super flattering on most face shapes, and a good pair of statement glasses can elevate an entire outfit. Unfortunately, the Technologics retail for $560, so not exactly pocket change. Miraculously, the look for less I found at Missguided is only $19.20 (!!!!!), so you can get this trendy look without shelling out half a pay check and your firstborn.

Madewell Summer Sale Picks (Extra 40% Off!)

madewell summer sale pickssource

Shop the sale HERE

While the #NSale gets all the love, my old friends at Madewell are hosting a rival summer sale that quickly caught my attention in between catching up on Snapchat and mindlessly scrolling through Instagram this morning. The trendier/more hipster little sister of J. Crew, Madewell is one of my favorite retailers, but often just a bit too expensive for my budget. This weekend though, the fashion gods have smiled upon us and you can currently get any Madewell sale item with an additional 40% off with code EXTRA40 at checkout.

That effortless “oh I just arrived back from summering on the Mediterranean” look for less? Don’t mind if I do! Check out some of my top picks to finish your summer sartorially strong below! All of them are less than $100, and most are less than $50!

silk sandstar dress in vinefloral

Silk Dress in Vinefloral – light and airy and oh so pretty. A perfect summer dress and currently less than $40! This dress would be perfect for a day out shopping or date night. I may need this.

the amalfi tote bag

Amalfi Tote Bag – Available in this navy or a bright crimson. Love this tote for the beach or as a summer carry-on bag. Plus, that name means I’m automatically a fan!

embroidered gamine skirt

The Gamine Embroidered Skirt. Pair it with a white tee like on the model and you’ll have mastered bohemian, yet still put together style.

silk off the shoulder dress in palmflower

Silk Off the Shoulder Dress in Palmflower. Off the shoulder dresses are everywhere this season, so why not invest in one that’s high quality (all my Madwell products have lasted several years), silk – so super comfortable, stylish, and less than $100.

the renny tassel sandal

Renny Tassel Sandals – I highly recommend Madewell’s sandals for summer travel. I wore mine to death in both London and Italy, and they’re still chugging along. These are fashionable, classic and will hold up while your wanderlust takes over.

scatterblock tassel dress

Scatterblock Tassel Dress – What’s not to love about a dress with tassels? They just make me want to dance! The shift cut on this dress is so flattering and the length is work appropriate. If I can claim it as a work investment, that’s all the convincing I need to throw my money at it!

eyelet sunshower top

Eyelet Sunshower Top – A delicate summer top in classic white. I think this basic is well worth it’s less than $20 sale price.

silk petalplay romper

Silk Petal Play Romper – A gorgeous romper in a gorgeous cobalt blue. Like dresses, I love rompers because there’s no thought involved in getting dress – perfect for lazy girls like me. This would be cute at a bridal shower or for college girls going through rush.

Denim Piazza Skirt

Denim Piazza Skirt – I own this skirt and love it. My only regret is that I didn’t buy it when it was on sale! Feminine and loose, it’s the more girly and grown up version of the classic denim mini.

nightbreeze mini dress in stroke dash

Nightbreeze Mini Dress – I know, I know, yet another dress. Honestly, dresses are just so easy and chic for summer, so I couldn’t resist. Plus, I’m a huge fan of Madewell’s dresses, and jump at any chance to buy them at a steep discount. This gingham number is a little dressier and would be a lovely summer work dress.

Thank you for stopping by, amigas! Happy Saturday and happy sale hunting!

Look for Less: Gianvito Rossi Plexi Pumps

There’s something about the weekend that puts me in a bargain-hunting mood (check out my #Nsale travel picks here), so I thought I’d help keep the Sunday scaries at bay with a #shoeporn-worthy dupe.

nude gianvito rossi plexi pumps

Gianvito Rossi is a fairly new brand to me, but I’m a firm new fan after seeing these sexy plexi pumps. How cool is that transparent panel? I love how they take the classic pump and elevate them to a whole other level of edginess. Plus, I think they’d do wonder for elongating your legs just like little Miss Selena:

As I suspected, since these are red-carpet worthy, they also unfortunately have a red-carpet appropriate price tag – over $700! I mean, they’re gorgeous, but I feel like they’re a bit too trendy to justify an investment. But let’s get real, I just don’t have that money. However, my (imaginary) friends at Boohoo have done us all a service and made a pretty spot-on dupe for only $44.

Grab them here!

Asos also sells a similar version by Public Desire in khaki, if you’re looking for a more autumnal pair:

They’re also under $50, and you can purchase here.

I think these will become even more omnipresent with dupes come autumn, so snag them now before every fashionista is let in on the secret! Happy Sunday shopping! I’m currently catching up on YouTube videos and will be off to brunch soon and more blog post writing! I’m so determined to do at least 4 posts a week, so I need to get working away (but brunch comes first of course)! What are you up to this weekend?

Look for Less: Self Portrait White Lace Azalea Dress

Give me this dress, a flight to Greece and a glass of rose – and I’m all set!

If you’ve been to any summer wedding or read any fashion blog this season, chances are you’ve glimpsed this oh so lovely Self Portrait dress.  Lacy, feminine and unique, I think it’s the perfect pretty party dress for any summer occasion. Something not so pretty? The $480 price tag.

Miranda Kerr is a fan. Miranda also has supermodel/Orlando Bloom divorce money, so $480 probably doesn’t set her back like us peasants.

Surprisingly, there aren’t too many dupes currently available for this design. Determined to save money and find a bargain, I put my years of online shopping/sleuthing experience to the test. Finally, the angels at Bloomingdale’s heard my prayers and sent me a Sunday blessing with a gorgeous look for less:


aqua lace empire midi dress - self portrait dupe

Buy here.

Brought to you by in-house Bloomingdale’s brand, Aqua, you can look very Self Portrait esque without the price tag. Sidenote – this brand Aqua has so many cute dresses right now – definitely check them out. Thanks to the neckline details, I almost love the look for less more than the original. If you’re headed to a bridal shower or wedding and don’t want to commit a serious faux pas, the dress also comes in pink and black.

Happy Sunday and happy shopping!

Look for Less: Eugenia Kim Do Not Disturb Beach Hat

It’s hotter than the hobs of hell here in St. Louis, and I’m looking for any way to escape the heat wave. While I love the look of a golden tan, I’m trying to get better about sun protection and hiding my skin from sun damage (wrinkles begone!). This Eugenia Kim sun hat is a blogger favorite and perfect way to shield your face while looking perfectly Instagrammable.

Rocky Barnes is one of the many insta-celebs loving Eugenia Kim.

While it’s super sassy, the hat is also super expensive. Frankly, I’m not down with spending over $50, let alone $400 (!!!!) for something I’m wearing to the pool or beach. I found some dupes that also feature cheeky slogans, so you’ll turn heads while keeping yours cool and covered.

My favorites have to be this Come Sail Away version and this Beach Please option. One sweet, and one a little more spunky.
