The Look for Less – Halle Berry

Okay, hot mom alert. She just had her baby in what? March? I hope I look that good after this bundle of joy/fatness arrives.

I thought Halle’s summery casual look was wicked cute. She glammed up a plain white dress with a few accessories and made a completely gorgeous outfit. I find that if you have a few good and simple pieces in your wardrobe, you can change the entire look by swapping out the accessories. Hmm… new post idea …

I KNOW you can do better than that… Try it.

The Look for Less – Katherine Heigl

I love this girl! Usually, I automatically despise any woman that my husband finds attractive… but is it wrong that I agree for once? His whole Uma Thurman phase drove me insane. I don’t get it. Anyway, Katherine Heigl is always so put together, has that lovable, all-American thing going on, and just happens makes some pretty hilarious movies. Knocked Up, hello? One of my favorites.

This look was so inspiring to me. The yellow jacket is what drew my attention at first — the whole kimono thing is really adorable. It takes a confident woman to pull off that color!

So here’s what I came up with using the ever-fabulous Polyvore. If you guys haven’t checked that site out yet, pop on over there soon. It’s so fun and addicting. It’s like playing with paper dolls… without… the dolls. I don’t know. It’s just fun. :)

  • Scrunchie Skinny Jean – Wet Seal: $29.50
  • Three Tier Tank Top – Wet Seal: $9.99
  • Hoodie Cape Jacket – Forever 21: $27.80
  • Pearl Buckle Peep Toe Heel – Go Jane: $16.99
  • Large Hobo Bag – Target: $29.99
  • Gold Twist Bracelet – Bees: $19.80

I could have done better, I suppose… but go ahead and try to beat my prices!

Have a great weekend, everyone! Love!

The Look for Less – Tina Fey

Tina, you are hilarious. Absolutely loved Baby Mama. And I’m digging the nautical-esque look you have going on here. Can I please copy this general idea, but spend about $2,000 less? Okay, thanks.

So, here’s another celebrity-inspired outfit for a fraction of what the original items cost. Let me know what you all think, and if you have enough time, explore Polyvore and try to beat my deal!

  • “The Sweetheart” Curvy Jean – Old Navy: $34.50
  • PPQ Stripe Top – Oli: $43.27 (I know I can do better than this… Disgraceful!)
  • Ruched Front Cardigan – Dorothy Perkins: $35.40
  • Strappy Knot Wedge – Go Jane: $15.99
  • Squared Corner Color Frames – House of Sunglasses: $9.99

I had to add the glasses… come on, it’s Tina. :)

The Look for Less – Blake Lively

Blake Lively is just too cute for words. And her outfit — GLORIOUS!

Okay, I have a small confession… while sitting at my desk at work (as I am right now — minimize screen power!), my mind is usually on everything BUT my job. One of the most distracting sites on the planet is InStyle.com. I could honestly sit and browse through The Look of the Day for hours (and I have). I get so inspired by all the well-dressed women, and often try to recreate the looks on my own for a lot less money.

Blake Lively’s look just caught my eye for some reason — it’s so crisp and effortless. So, I found some similar items online and just might have to try it out for myself…

So, what do you all think? Please tell me I’m not the only copy cat!
