Celeb Inspirations for less!

Don't you just love seeing celebrities rocking a stellar outfit on TV or in the mags? Don't you love it even more knowing that you'll never be able to afford to spend $575 on a pair of heels or a bag? Can't you just hear the sarcasm dripping off this post? I have come to the conclusion that unless I either win the lottery or get a kickass job in the fashion industry, I will probably never own a pair of Louboutins or an authentic Chanel quilted bag. I've made peace with that, but it doesn't mean I have to start wearing mom jeans and velcro tennis shoes. There are pleeeeenty of stores out there who offer stylish, trendy clothes for those of us who actually have to pay our own bills. It really can't be that difficult to find similar styles for under $150-including the top(s), bottom, and shoes. Maybe I'll make this a once-a-week thing, so if you have any celeb looks that you like, let me know and I'll see what I can dig up! I'm going to do two looks today from Kim Kardashian who is one of my best dressed stars.

Let's start with a "dressier" look. I really think this is perfect for autumn nights out, especially in Minnesota. You don't want to have to carry around a big bulky jacket, but you also don't want to have to stand outside for an hour (I'm talking to YOU, Sneaky Pete's) freezing your buns off. So here is look #1 from Miss K:
I love how she is dressing down that dress with a simple black blazer. Then she added the leopard print clutch to add a little pizzazz. Alright, now let's see if we can get this look for less! Here's the breakdown!:
Forever21 Rosette Dress-$24.80 (not as poufy as Kim's, but it was nearly IMPOSSIBLE to find a dress like that!)

The entire look only costs $105.80!

Ok, here is the next look, which is a more casual one. I love how low key she looks, but she is still so well put together! I just love her and would give my right arm to have all the clothes in her closet. But it'd have to be everything including bags, purses, jewelry, and sunglasses-I mean, I am giving her my right arm afterall. Alright, here's the look:
Ok, so we've got a simple tan tunic, some ripped skinnies, leopard print booties, and a pair of oversized sunglasses. Easy enough. Read on...

And I added this bag from F21 just because it adds that perfect pop of color (and I'm in love with it)

The whole look is only $127.40!
