dress designer on a budget

I am no fashion blogger but I felt like I needed to share my ways to dress in similar-to-designer duds for MUCH less than the designer price tag. 

I'm going to start with this gorgeous Kate Spade dress. It carries a hefty price of $398.
(found here)
I found a similar dress at Forever 21 for $27.80. It does not have the great print of the KS dress but the shape and the great collar accent are present.
(found here)

Military style jackets are EVERYWHERE this season. You can dress them up with bright accessories, skinnies and heels or you can throw on an old pair of jeans with some combat boots.
This jacket by Michael Kors is beautiful but stabs you with it's $275 price tag.
(found here)
Forever 21 always has stylish outerwear at great prices so it was no surprise that they had something similar with a budget friendly price of $39.80.
(found here)

White is the new black as far as I'm concerned. It goes with anything and everything and gives an outfit a nice crisp feel. This crossbody by Jason Wu is the perfect accessory to top off a plain outfit except for the $1,495 price.
(found here)
Charlotte Russe carries a bag with the same bright white hue for a reasonable $15.99. 
(found here)

Denim is back! I still don't know how I feel about denim jackets but vests are just enough denim to add an edgier look to a sundress or bright tank.
This J Brand vest from Anthropologie is a whopping $218.
(found here)
Lulu's carries a distressed denim vest for a much better price of $52.
(found here)

Happy shopping y'all!

currently learning the cup song from Pitch Perfect.

I'm baaaaack :]

I haven't written a post since October 8 and a TON has happened since then. This post will be strictly for catching up. I have lots planned for future posts so make sure to stop by again!

1. I got laid off from my job on November 13.


3. I moved to Chesapeake, VA on December 9. It was a terrible drive. I don't wish it on my worst enemy. Let's just say that we will NEVER move ourselves by pulling a U-Haul behind one of our vehicles. What was supposed to be a 13 hour trip turned into 24. We couldn't go above 55 mph & if we hit a bump in the road, the trailer started swaying back and forth, causing my Jeep to sway back and forth, causing me to pee my pants several times. We were so tired by the time we made it into VA that we had to stop & sleep for 2 hours. The hotel room had obviously not been cleaned because there was black hair in the bed & in the bathroom and I thought I was going to contract some kind of disease. It was absolutely disgusting.

4. I got to ring in the new year with my best friend, Liz :] Her dad and sister live in Virginia Beach so she came and visited with them for the holiday and we conveniently got to slip in some best friend time.

5. Bristol is loving the new apartment. We live on the first floor so she can run around and play and not disturb the neighbors like in our apartment in MS. She enjoys long walks/sprints around the courtyard chasing the resident rabbit and sleeping on the back of the couch like a cat. There is a dog park less than 5 minutes away which is awesome. I would be so bored on duty days without her.

I guess that's all for now! I gotta get my tush in bed. See y'all later!
