I know most women, including myself, follow and admire celebrities at award shows and red carpet events on television, while wishing we could afford the very pricey looks. With this economy in it’s depressing financial state and the disappearance of so many jobs, I decided to start a celebrity look of the week to show women that you don’t have to spend thousands of dollars to achieve similar styles of the rich and famous. I also want to share a couple tips on how you can turn something cheap into chic!
To achieve this hot look for less, stores such as H&M and Forever 21 have stylish leather jackets that cost around $30.00. This same style of dress can also be found at H&M or Forever 21 for under $25.00. These black closed toe pumps are very common and chic. I was able to buy myself a pair of Guess heels similar to these from Marshall’s for only $35.00. You can’t beat that!
Tips: Thrift stores are one of the best places to shop. Most creative fashionistas buy their clothes from thrift stores and vintage shops. You can find anything from a stylish dress or a 80’s inspired blazer. Thrifts stores are fun, trendy,and cheap; and you’ll be sure to steal the spotlight at any event.
