Hermes Double Leather Wrap Chamonix Bracelet Look For Less

The Breakdown

The real, the sublime Hermes Rivale double wrap leather bracelet, is a smaller adaptation of our Hermes Collier de Chien steal and we think this size is perfect for spring and summer. The gold plated pyramid and ring detail provides just the right amount of edge for any ensemble. The simple black leather strap allows for limitless flexibility when it comes to incorporating this piece into any outfit.

The Hermes bracelet retails for $520. The steal is the Leatherette Wrap Bracelet from Forever 21, which retails for just $6.80. It’s available with gold hardware, in black, cream and brown and features a toggle closure. It would be great alone or layered with a watch, bangles and bracelets.

Luella Dress Spring 2010 Alexa Chung Look For Less

The Breakdown

This dress was so fresh off the runway when Alexa Chung was spotted wearing it at London Fashion week. The cut-out front mini dress from Luella’s spring collection is so whimsical and fun. Ex-fashion editor for The Evening Standard and British Vogue, Luella Bartley, is as hip as her fans Lily Allen, Kate Moss and Alexa Chung. Her collections are characterized by bold prints, and eye-catching accessories.

I’m not sure if this particular Luella Dress, as seen on Alexa Chung, was released for public sale, so I wasn’t able to track down a price on it. Luella dresses typically sell for $500 – $700 at The steal, the Charlotte Dress by BB Dakota, is perfect for spring and may be found at for only $86!

What do you think of Alexa’s style. Is the look for less something you would try?

My girl Vanessa has sent so many “designer look for less” tips my way that I asked her to join The Looks For Less team. How’d she do for her first guest post? Amazing find, right? The following is all Vanessa…

Am I the only one who’s totally on board with the major leopard EVERYTHING trend that’s going on right now? The real is the Stuart Weitzman Leopard Calf Hair Espadrille.

Tom Ford Anouk Cat Eye Sunglasses - The Look For Less

The Breakdown

I am so in love with the Tom Ford Anouk cat eye sunglasses – they are one of those high-end accessories that was almost worth the splurge to me and I found it nearly impossible to find a steal! All of the other look for less cat eye sunglasses were a little off – most have a metal pin in the front upper corners that looked like a staple and make them look so cheap. I’m ok with inexpensive, but I prefer “the look” for less!

Givenchy Black & White Striped Blazer - The Look For Less

Givenchy Black & White Striped Blazer - The Look For Less

A Casual Alternative

I got an email from Raqketa requesting a look for less of a black and white striped Givenchy blazer. She wrote, “Recently, both Keri Hilson and Kim Kardashian were photographed in white blazers with thin black stripes. I’ve looked everywhere for one, but can only find white with NAVY stripes. Think you can help?” I think I can Raqketa! I actually found a couple of options for you.

The real, as seen on Keri Hilson, is a black and white striped blazer by Givenchy that retails for $1,500. What makes this blazer unique is that the stripes on the pointed collar are in the shape of the collar, rather than horizontal stripes matching the body of the blazer. I found two options that I think would look great dressed up or dressed down.

The best match is the hook-and-eye front horizontal striped Camryn blazer by Tart. It comes with a price tag of $172; however, I found it on sale at Last Call by Neiman Marcus for 30% off at $99! I actually prefer the casual alternative found at – it’s like a cross between the fun Givenchy jacket and a boyfriend blazer. I would wear it with everything!

Diane Von Furstenberg Opal Wedge - The Look For Less

The Breakdown

Thanks again to my steal the real tipster Vanessa – she knows her designer styles so well and has an expert eye for spotting a look for less! You have to check out her blog Leather and Lollipops, I LOVE it! The real is the Diane von Furstenberg Opal Wedge and it is perfect for spring! I actually prefer the steal – it’s nearly identical to the real; however, I think the cognac color is much more on-trend and less “heavy” than the brown wedge for spring/summer.
