Look for Less – Kristen Bell

Jun

I’ve had several readers kindly remind me that I’m WAY overdue on a Look for Less post. Thank you for that, ladies! Seriously, how did I forget about all the fun I used to have finding these cute celebrity outfits while I was sitting in the office, putting off real work like the committed employee I am?!?

I HAVE NO IDEA EITHER!

Kristen Bell is beyond adorable and always seems to be dressed in pretty, feminine outfits. That polka dot top she’s wearing makes me all happy inside. Aaaaaand I’m pretty sure I’m going to hunt down those shoes the first chance I get. Yes, they’re a tad hookerish, but sometimes I’m okay with hooker shoes. Judge me not.

Note: This post was actually not written during office hours. You know, just in case my 6’4″, middle-aged, manly boss ever gains an interest in my blog and decides to read about these fashiony-type things...

I’ve sort of been dying to get my hands on a leather jacket lately (judge me not), but kind of thought I’d end up looking like a biker-chick. Pairing it up with a cute dress & heels could work quite well in bringing the Badass down a few notches.  Hmm…

Any family who happens to be reading this… Christmas is coming uuuup.

Wait. Who said that?

The Look for Less – Katie Holmes

Wait… Are we even allowed to call her Katie anymore? Or is she just Kate? You know, because Kate just sounds so much more grown up, and I can really take someone named Kate so much more seriously than someone named Katie. The two names are just so different, you know? (Ugh, TOM.)

Anyway. The girl has been through a lot, but she proves that no matter who you’re married to or how batcrapcrazy they are, you can still pull it together and look fabulous. R-e-s-p-e-c-t, right here.

Well hello there, little people. My name is Anne Hathaway and I’m freaking adorable in my size 2 red flouncy dress. Go ahead and attempt to copy my amazing outfit on your more …humble budget.

Oh, and while you’re at it, be a doll and find the fat, pregnant version of this amazing dress for my very close & personal friend Morgan. She’s desperate to look like anything but a beached whale these days, poor dear.
