Look for Less: Gigi Hadid’s Travel Style

I know that I’ve been a bad blogger, but I promise to be more consistent – at least for the next week or so 😉 What can I say, life can some times get in the way of the digital world, but I’m going to make more time for this creative passion of mine and other things that make me happy.

Leave it to Gigi Hadid and a chic travel outfit to re-inspire me. Could I have any more of a girl crush on this chick? Gigi wore this stylish outfit when traveling to Brazil this summer, and I think it’s perfect for a long haul flight or a casual fall outfit. I’ve done some sleuthing and found budget appropriate pieces to copy Miss Hadid’s look and get that effortless on the go it-girl glam. Who says you have to spend thousands of dollars to dress like a supermodel?

These Zara leather leggings look so expensive and like Balmain, but they’re only $40!
The side zips on this Boohoo sweater mimic Gigi’s look and complement high-waisted leggings
Faux suede booties from Forever 21 – a steep discount from Gigi’s Saint Laurent pair
I’m always looking for ways to spruce up my travel outfits, and Miss Hadid certainly provided some motivation, all while helping me get back into blogging. Thanks G!

Look for Less: Something Navy’s Louboutins

Arielle from Something Navy, one of my favorite bloggers, has mastered the art of the shoelfie. That’s a shoe selfie for those of you that don’t waste all day on the internet. When she uploaded the above Louboutins, I was lovestruck. While the styling and merchandising is on point, I was most struck by those glorious red soled booties.

Model bod and fabulous New York lifestyle are not included.

Like Arielle, I definitely have champagne taste, but unlike Arielle, I have more of a beer budget. Even if I could afford these heels, however, I would be out of luck as they are no longer available. Always up for a challenge, I found a similar look for less for only $99 from Gilt. They aren’t exact dupes for the Louboutins, but the color, shape and detailing are very similar. They are also reminiscent of the Vince Addie booties, which are similarly adorable and expensive.

My shoelfie game still needs work, but I’m happy to keep practicing when that means more new pairs of beauties are in my future.

Look for Less: Dior So Real Sunglasses

Every day I see more and more bloggers and celebs donning the Dior So Real sunglasses. Who can blame them? The shape is unique, they’re oversized and hide a multitude of sins, and their uber trendy reflective lenses come in a variety of colors.

Unfortunately, they retail for a Dior appropriate price tag at over $500 a pair! That’s like a round trip plane ticket, so definitely a hard pass. Luckily, through some online sleuthing, I found almost identical lookalikes!
They were only $15! I ordered the “lucency-silver” color, and the quality certainly checks out. I mean, they’re definitely not worth five hundred bucks, but they’re a great dupe, the sizing is on point, and they aren’t falling apart. Don’t worry, I’ve already ordered a second pair in pink 🙂
I don’t look like Shay Mitchell or Olivia Palermo, so I don’t do them justice. Just wanted to give you an idea of sizing even on a seven-head face like mine.
Have you seen any good dupes for these sunglasses on other sites? Their popularity is only gaining, so snatch a pair before they reach critical mass.
