Look for Less – Kristen Bell

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...

The Look for Less – Maria Menounos

I don’t know much about you, lady, but that outfit is freaking adorable.

The Look for Less – Anne Hathaway

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.

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

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

Have a great weekend, everyone! Love!
