Most of us do have a love of all things celebrity and once someone we love or admire wears something inevitably we have to have it right???? Have you ever done that, picked up the latest trash magazine, saw that outfit on someone whose style you admire and decided I have to have that, I need it, I want it…. I think we all have at one time or another. The secret however, is how can I dress like that with my budget ?? Now do not misunderstand me,there is no problem with buying the exact outfit they have if a) you have the budget for it and b) do not mind spending that much. I, on the other and like to see if I can get that look without the heavy price tag attached to it. ( yea that is correct I am ultimately cheap, cheap, cheap.)
Today being a slow Sunday ( and the fact that all us Canadians were up at the crack of dawn to watch the gold medal game, go Canada) I decided to play around with a few things I had in my closet and try to mimic a few outfits I found on line.
First up a style Icon I admire a lot Reese Witherspoon, a celebrity that seems so very down to earth and one who wears her pieces over and over again. She has a fabulous Denim/Chambray Shirt dress that we have seen on her a few times.
I love all three looks on Reese and although I do not know the brand of her dress nor her accessories ( with the exception of her Chuck Taylors) I thought I would take a go at a few styling options. Forgive the photos being inside but it is now cold and dark outside.
I found this shirt dress at J Crew Factory Outlet for $22.00 and I could not resist it. Boots are from G.H. Bass ( great prices), Chuck Taylors in the middle although a little dirty and finally a great pair of flats that I found at Old Navy for 5.97. Purse is one of my Favs from Coach ( again a factory outlet deal)
Each outfit I have own ranges from 28.00 -175.00, very affordable ( especially because purse, Boots and shoes will be worn many times with many outfits.
I then tried another Reese look
