If I was wealthy I would own the Celine luggage tote in every color [a girl can dream!]. But for thousands of dollars even one Celine tote just isn’t a reality for a budgetista like myself and I am way beyond sporting a fake. Ugh, I cringe remembering the days when I thought a fake Louis Vuitton from the streets of NY, usually out of a trash bag, was ethical or chic. If you share my dream of a Celine, Aldo created a similar structured bag with studs for just $83 available at ASOS. Buy it here.

1. Ali & Kris Ombre Denim Top & Forever21 Neon Skirt
2. Vintage Harrod’s Hat [similar]
3. Forever21 Neon Stripe Skirt [similar]
Just because I’m the budgetista doesn’t mean I have less clothing; in fact an argument could be made that I should be allowed to own even more than the average shopper since I buy everything so cheap [hear that bf?]. I am finally getting around to some Spring cleaning and have added some items to my Threadflip closet. Now you can shop my closet. xx, tb
My current blog obsession is Song of Style [if you don't know, now you know] and I adore how she styled this piped blazer with cut-off shorts and ankle-strap sandals. In fact, I recreated this look over the weekend minus the blazer because prep is not my forte and I don’t own a blazer. However, this will be remedied shortly as I will be purchasing the look for less to the Lovers + Friends Addicted to Love Blazer immediately. Happy Wednesday!

Ombre and cutouts? Sign me up. I LOVE the Nastygal frontin cutout version, but since it is sold out [obviously because Nastygal is amazzzzing] I went on a bender today looking for a similar steal. Well ladies, let me tell you; Forever21 is really stepping up their fashion game, especially with this spot-on ombre cutout mini dress for just $18.
Nastygal Frontin Cutout Dress – SOLD OUT
Forever21 Ombre Cutout Dress – $18
Valentino and studs; what’s not to like? Other than the price tag, nothing, but since the reals are sold out anyway I found us the next best thing for a fraction of the Valentino cost. Get strappy, studded and sexy with the Steve Madden sandals for only $66. Then you can save your hard-earned money for things like rent and eyelash extensions [have you done those yet? Tell me if you have!]

I wish every weekend was Coachella, except then I’d have a permanent hangover and be on a serious budget seeing as I would need a new boho hippie outfit every week. Considering I don’t live in CA I’ll just have to dream about my music fest style for now and I am seriously digging this look for my future: fringe suede jacket paired with an oversized men’s rocker tee and knee socks. I live for this effortless hippie chic vibe she has going on. Get in on the Coachella style for under $90, knee socks included.
Fringed Suede Jacket - $60 | Guns N Roses Tee – $15
Over the Knee Cable Socks – $13
The color combo of emerald and blonde hair is killer, as shown in this heavily pinned pic. Love the Ray Bans too. I read somewhere [while hanging out in the black hole known as Pinterest] that the real green blazer is BCBG but I haven’t come across it yet so send me a note if you have. Otherwise, check out the two fab steals for the green silk blazer below. Happy Wednesday!

I’m just going to ignore the fact that Charlize Theron is carrying a baby on her hip (?) and get right to the point of this post. Readers want to know where to get Charlize’s zebra sweater. If you are one of them, you are in luck – the real is in stock and costs under $100. If you don’t dig zebras and just want to comment on this picture, feel free to leave a note.
