Fendi Anna Colorblock Shoulder Bag Look For Less

Steal the Real – Fendi Anna Colorblock Shoulder Bag

The Fendi Colorblock Piccolo shoulder bag is so fun for fall/winter, but the price tag is a little (a lot) out of my price range! This satchel retails at Barney’s New York for $2,050! I don’t think I could ever add anything to my wardrobe that has a price tag with a comma in it lol. Luckily, HandbagHeaven.com has an amazing look for less for only $40.76, for a difference of $2,010 from the real!

The Bella Colorblock Satchel, available in brown or gray, has retro inspired details, a simple satchel shape with a foldover top flap, and a shoulder length strap. This soft leatherette bag’s colorblock design mixes contrasting colors in chic exotic croc leatherette. A silver metal and enamel faux buckle detail hides the magnetic snap front closure and an exterior back pocket fully zips to keep your cell phone safely stowed.

Rebecca Minkoff Sexy Pleated Dress Look For Less

Steal the Real – Rebecca Minkoff Sexy Pleated Dress

Most of you probably already know that Rebecca Minkoff is by far my favorite handbag designer, but what you may not know, is that she also designs clothes. Her sexy pleated dress is so fun and the perfect party dress for the holidays. This dress is a bit out of my price range retailing for $428.00 at ShopBop.com; however, you’re in luck, we found a look for much less at Lulus.com!

Show off the cutouts at the neckline and shoulder straps that make the Surprise Surprise dress, available in pink and teal, a glam slam. What I like best about this dress is it’s price tag of only $36.50!

Frye 8R Harness Boots Brown Look For Less

Steal the Real – Frye 8R Harness Boots

I am OBSESSED with Frye boots. Over the years, they have come out with so many variations of their harness boot and Target is always right behind them with a look for less.

The real is the Frye 8R W Harness Boot in tan leather and may be found at Zappos.com for $218. The look for less, available in black or brown, is the Kaiala Ankle Boot from Target and what’s CRAZY CRAZE is that the material is genuine leather!!!! They are so similar to the real, with the same expensive material, and cost only $24.99. What a steal! I’ll be ordering a pair quickly before they run out of my size!

Two Tone Gold Silver Pearl Bangle Look For Less

Steal the Real – Two Tone Pearl Bangle Bracelet

I love the mix of materials in this David Yurman pearl, gold, and silver bangle. The real has two fresh water pearls on 14K gold rings and a bracelet of twisted cable sterling silver. This beautiful vintage-inspired bangle may be found at Saks Fifth Avenue with a price tag of $495! The steal may be found at Mimi’s The Look For Less Boutique for only $12!

Classic Ray Ban Wayfarers Look For Less

Steal the Real – The Classic Ray Ban Wayfarer

I have to admit, I own the real (with credits from BeyondTheRack.com, of course) and the steal, and there is no difference other than the expensive label. I was on a major mission to find the sunnies Taylor Jacobson wore in every episode of The Rachel Zoe project, and come to find out, they were the Classic Ray-Ban Wayfarers also seen on Tom Cruise in Risky Business and Edward Cullen in Twilight lol.

The Ray-Ban Wayfarers come with a price tag of $169! The Retro Style Wayfarers from SunglassWarehouse.com are only $14.95, for a savings of $154 from the Ray Bans.

Gucci Tassel Belt Look For Less

Gucci Wide Tassel Belt Look For Less

I’m sure everyone remembers Jennifer’s Summer Style Series, where she translated notable summer 2011 trends into head-to-toe looks for less, shopping with only one merchant and putting together outfits, complete with shoes and accessories, for no more than $150. Her first was the Gucci Color Block Trend which was a huge standout. I’m probably not the only one who saw celebs like Camilla Belle and Kim Kardashian rocking some variation of this look, and was so excited when I saw Jennifer’s look for less.

One of the key items in this trend was the Gucci Wide Adjustable Tassel Belt featured in their Spring 2011 collection. The braided ties are reminiscent of Ancient Grecian style, but the metallic leather makes it so contemporary. This belt has so much visual interest and could be a stand-alone addition to an outfit, or mixed with an array of other accessories.

The Gucci belt retails for $1,250. The steal is the Asos Metallic Tie Detail Obi Belt , which retails for $26.19 and is available in silver, bronze, and black with sequins. It’s easy to add this belt to most outfits because it’s flexible enough to be worn with a range of items like tunic tops, dresses or jumpsuits. I love having different colors to choose from and think all of them could be paired with any hue of clothing or jewelry.

What do you think of this belt? Would you try this look for less?

Prada MultiColored Striped Dress Look For Less

Prada’s Spring 2011 Ready-to-Wear collection splashed onto the runway featuring an array of fashion-forward bold and bright stripes. The collection inspired a bevy of designers throughout the industry to follow suit and flocks of fashionistas all over the world to push the trend into full motion. This particular dress presented in the collection was definitely a standout and was featured on the covers of magazines such as Elle, Harper’s Bazaar and Instyle. A lengthened version of the dress was worn by up and coming actress Hailee Steinfeld, who starred in True Grit, at the 2011 Screen Actors Guild Awards.

House Of Harlow 1960's Tribal Drop Earrings Look For Less

The Breakdown

The real, House of Harlow 1960’s Tribal Drop Earrings, are perfectly on point with the current tribal trend happening right now. An accessory like this can really bring any outfit to life, especially something that’s simple and understated or monochromatic. These earrings pack a real punch because of their design and mix of colors and textures, but have an elegance that keeps them looking polished and chic.

Though the pattern is defined as tribal, it also has an art-deco feel because of the design and the actual construction of the earrings, which is very architectural. Even though tribal design is a trend right now, I really feel that these could be timeless because they can add a really strong point of visual interest to your ensemble. Being interesting is always in!

The House of Harlow earrings retail for $100. The steal, Forever 21′s Tribal Geo Earrings, retail for $5.80. They are available in two colors; silver/black and gold/rust and feature a post backing. I would love to have these in both colors!

What do you think? Would you try these earrings?
