Steal Her Look: Miranda Kerr’s Floral Pants

Posted 2 years ago by

The 29-year-old model was spotted wearing adorable floral trousers while running errands in New York City over the weekend. She’s also a repeat offender. She was spotted only days before wearing another pair! There is no denying it: floral pants are a hot item this summer. But how do you wear them?

Floral pants come in all different styles: trousers, leggings and even jeans. Once you know the style you want, just pair a simple shirt with it. It’s very easy to over do it. To be safe, a plain black, white or grey top is all you need…just like Miranda! The same goes for your shoes. On both days, Miranda paired her floral pants with either nude pumps or sandals.

If you’re short and/or petite, go for floral pants with a smaller print. If you’re tall and have long legs, you can go for the large and bold floral pairs.

Below are a few pants you might want to consider adding to your wardrobe.

Topshop: $72

Urban Outfitters: $39

Necessary Clothing: $27.99

Urban Outfitters: $49

Annie Sez Got a Makeover!

Posted 3 years ago by

The label loving Annie Sez just got a makeover, and now she’s better than ever! I recently got invited to a Blogger Preview Party at the new Annie Sez in New Brunswick, New Jersey: it was love at first sight. I was throughly impressed with their new store. It has become highly classy and super sophisticated, with in season merchandise by designers such as Betsy Johnson, Michael Kors, Calvin Kline, Steve Madden and Carla Mancini. I recommend this store for the post grad who needs to revamp her style with chic and sophisticated clothing (for those longs days at the office). Love labels? Crave savings? Shop Annie Sez!

Get the Look for Less: July

Posted 3 years ago by

Jeffrey Campbell has easily become my favorite shoe company! Amazingly unique designs for a great price. Most of the shoes are between 100 and 200 dollars, which is quite reasonable for designer. Many of the designs are wedges, which in my opinion, are the most “comfortable” heel. But these wedges are an entirely different league of comfortable. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think an 8″ heel would be comfy, but they’re like walking on pillows. Regardless of their affordability, $200 is still a little much for my wallet. Living in the Big Apple equates to big bills. But luckily for me I have found some great alternatives!

Here’s a peek into the wonderful world of Jeffrey Campbell Shoes

“Revolver” $199.95The famous “Lita” $159.95

“99 Tie” $114.95

“Groovie” $184.95

“Bandit” $144.95

Cheaper Alternative Part I

This is the Jeffrey Campbell “Tick” shoe. $169.95

Vs.

I found these wonderful “copycats” at Necessary Clothing on Broadway in Soho for only $29.99. I hope everyone gets the chance to stop at this wonderful store to get their own pair of Jeffrey Campbell “knock-offs.”

Cheaper Alternative Part II

“Pixie”  $179.95“Zoe Fur” $199.95

Vs.

These are also from Necessary Clothing in Soho. Only $19.99! They’re just as comfortable too!

You never know when you’ll come across the bargain of a lifetime!

Get the Look for Less: June (Part II)

These glittery oxfords were only $25 at Necessary Clothing in New York City. They had them in black, silver and gold, and they sure beat spending $80, or even $600.

$40 Durango Boots

Posted 4 years ago by

These boots were originally around $130, but I got them on sale for only $40 at a western store in Massachusetts (Double J Western Store) about 5 years ago. I wear these boots more than any other pair of shoes I own. If you want a pair of real cowboy boots, I recommend you go to your local equestrian/western store and look in the sale section. Nothing beats real leather.

Bag: $24 H&M
