I’ve had the Rachel Zoe ‘Kayne’ Suede Platform Wedge pinned to my lust list for months now but since I waited so long to make my move [have you seen the price tag?] the wedge is no longer available. Luckily Jennifer Lopez has her finger on the pulse of what’s hot as shown by her ridiculously similar suede wedge designed for Kohl’s. If they don’t have your size in stock online make sure to check out your local Kohl’s sale rack!
Rachel Zoe Kayne Suede Platform Wedge | $375 [Sold Out]
Jennifer Lopez Peep-toe Platform Wedge Heels | $56
For those of you who DIE for the Louboutin look but want the sky-high patent pump without the extreme price tag, let me introduce you to the oh-so similar, oh-so chic Boutique 9 patent leather pump option. The Boutique 9 Justine pump gives you the same look and lifts you up 5 inches for just $120, compared to the $625 price tag of the luxurious Louboutin. Get the look without the regret in both black and nude, here.

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.
Aldo Folortan Studded Shopper Bag | $83
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!
Real: Lovers + Friends Addicted to Love Blazer in Cream | $246
Steal: Banana Republic Tipped One-button Blazer | $99
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
