Friday Fashion: The Look For Less with Rachel Bilson + Splurge or Save?

I found this gorgeous photo of Rachel Bilson on pinterest this week and fell in love with her outfit at first site. She is someone I often look out for when I'm in need of some modest style inspiration which I've talked about in a Friday Fashion post here. I really like how she mixed the fun patterned dress with a blazer and strappey heels with white accents! I immediately decided to put together an affordable version of my own using similar looking pieces from some of my favorite online stores. I was amazed to find each piece for under $35.00 and the final total was $151.44 which is just insane! You know how much I love budget buys and these are total bargains for our Summer wear. Do you love her look? Can you see yourself wearing an ensemble like this this summer? I'd pair the jumper with a white shell instead of the blazer and some nude flats for a relaxed summer afternoon when the temperatures are scorching.

While we're on budget buys topic, here are some more pieces I've found that look similar or are from the same trend or theme but have very different price tags! The only question now- Splurge or Save?

  4. Wow, great selection! I'll confess that I normally would pick the expensive stuff, but the looks are so similar, the less expensive pieces! So I would say save! I liked Rachel's outfit and you managed to find that cute dress for $29.95? And the jacket for $35? Well done! I loved every item!

  5. Indeed a budget buy! you should totally go for it...I love this look too, very classical!

    now to the splurge or save list...do what you think is best, but these save items are super cute! sometimes the difference in quality isn't that great...quality shoes are always a good investment but I think that for most other things you'd be more than happy with low coast alternative.

  6. You've recreated Rachel's outfit so perfectly! She has great style. I really like your selections. This is really bad for the budget, but for every piece I just instantly chose the splurge! I appreciate your kind words over at mine :)
