Look for Less: Marysia Scalloped Swimwear

Summer is finally here! Since I moved away from Phoenix and LA and year round sunshine, I don’t take a second of the warmer months  and soaking up Vitamin D for granted. Today was a balmy 81, so naturally I laid out on my deck for a good half hour to try and cure my albinism. To honor the arrival of sunbathing and rose weather, this dupe is for the perfect summer bikini.


While Natasha Oakley can make a potato sack look hot, I think these Marysia scalloped bikinis look classy on anyone. They’re simple and flattering with just enough interest due to the scalloped detailing. They usually retail for about $300 for a whole bikini, so that price just won’t do. How am I supposed to jet to Greece or Italy to prance around in my bikini if my suit costs more than a night at a hotel?

Thankfully, I’ve found several styles at a fraction of the price – all under $50!. Never underestimate the power of a little internet sleuthing and lust for a deal. Now, you can spend more of your beach budget on mojitos and a cabana boy – as it should be.

Look for Less: Olivia Palermo x Westward Leaning Sunglasses

Well, Monday has hit me like a ton of bricks. After spending all weekend at a work conference spending my days working and nights drinking and dancing – I am exhausted. The only thing giving me life is this fabulous dupe I’m about to bestow on you. Drumroll please….

Yes, Queen OP is back, and I miraculously found a perfect copy of her gorgeous pink and tortoishell Westward Leaning Flower sunglasses. These babies retail for over $200! Plus, Olivia’s pink pair, the best color option in my opinion, appears to be no longer available online.

Haughty air of indifference and vacation home in Capri not included.

Since I don’t have the bank account of my favorite socialite cum The City star cum fashionista – my heroes at Missguided have stepped in to save the day. This dupe is only $14!

Buy here!

Pretty near perfect if you ask me! Even if you’re not an Olivia fan, these are also very reminiscent of the Dior So Real frames and super on trend.

 

Thanks for stopping by – I’m off to catch up on Fear the Walking Dead. What’s getting you through Monday?

Look for Less: Vince Addie Bootie

Ivana Revic is one of my all-time favorite girl crushes. Her Instagram exudes California cool-girl, and I wish I could look as effortless and chic as she does. As most it-girl bloggers do, Ivana has quite the shoe collection and a special  fondness for Vince shoes.

I literally drool over my Instagram feed whenever she posts these Vince Addie booties. Hashtag shoe porn.  How cool is that sexy cut-out silhouette? But, how not cool is that $395 price tag? As the great Countess Luann once said, “Be cool, don’t be all uncool.”
Snag the look for less.
Thankfully, sir Steven Madden has crafted an almost identical dupe. These baddies are a fraction of the cost, but have that same perfect Ivana-approved shape. I want them in both black and nude! Happy Monday and happy shopping!

Look for Less: Julia of Gal Meets Glam’s Lavender Dress

Hello friends! Sorry I’ve been MIA – I was at Coachella, then recovering from Coachella. It’s amazing what dust storms, long days dancing your heart out and the oppressive heat can do to your respiratory system! I’ll share a bit more of my trip soon, but I didn’t want to delay posting any longer, so here is a trusty Sunday look for less!

Julia Engel of Gal Meets Glam has been gallivanting around Italy with her blogger bestie, Rose of The Londoner. Julia’s style is usually a bit too girly for my taste, but I fell for this lavender number she wore while exploring Verona. I don’t know if it’s the purple, the gorgeous Italian backdrop, or that it’s by boho favorite brand Tularosa, but I love this floral dress for spring and summer. Tularosa is a bit expensive, so luckily when I was wandering around Nordstrom this morning I found a great dupe!

Um, can I go to Italy now please?
Julia’s original dress retails for $168, but this Nordstrom look is less than $50! It’s not exactly the same, but the print, cut and color are very similar. In person it’s practically spot on.
Buy it here.
Thank you for stopping by and happy Sunday shopping! What is everyone up to this weekend? I’m online shopping and watching some of my favorite YouTubers to ward off the Sunday scaries!

Look for Less: Gigi Hadid’s High Neck Top

As usual, I’m so feeling Gigi Hadid’s off duty style and had to grab a version of her high neck top. Just like lace up necklines, I think the high neckband cut is going to be everywhere soon. I love Gigi’s white version from Intermix, as I think it’s sexy without being sleazy and adds interest to a plain white blouse.

Missguided (as usual) had a perfect dupe, and I stalked the site until my size was back in stock. I love the fit and think it’s stylish paired with a skirt or jeans.  The black version will be mine soon enough! See gratuitous selfie from the weekend below, so you can get an idea of the fit. How spot on is the fit? Plus it was only $34!  Get it here!
Do you like this neckline or is it too avant garde for you? I’m fully on board and can almost taste the unfettered access to Zayn’s heart and Yolanda Foster’s walk-in lemon fridge.
