Copy Cats

One of the primary challenges of fashion is its monetary price. I think most of you bloggers can agree with me that designer prices are just not practical. Personally, I own only one pricey handbag, but I saved for that beauty for quite some time.

The rest of our things are thrifted, gifted, or bought with discretion. With this thought in mind, we thought it would be fun to replicate some designer style on the cheap!

The first celebrity we chose was Shenae Grimes. Found on CelebStyle.
Helmut Lang Skinny Leather Pants- $875
Kain Pocket Tank- $90
Zara Twill Blazer- $70

Our alternative:
1. Charlotte Russe Blazer- $40
2. American Apparel Tank- $24
(alternative: Walmart Shirt- $10)
3. Target Boots- $35
(alternative: Famous Footwear Boots- $25)
4. Dance Wear Solutions Leggings- $30

And as an accessory, we love this Forever 21 necklace for $7.

Our next copy cats post will be more summer oriented, promise!
