The look for less:Marc Jacobs Vs Oil

I honestly do not know where to start from with this post. This dress has haunted me for about a year and a half now. I spotted it on Victoria Beckham and I loved it so much because I thought the fabric pattern was extremely unique. I really wanted this dress but of course was not ready to shell out $3900 for it. An alternative has been spotted on Oil's website and I love it. Even the 2 dresses are not in the same design, they still have that fabric pattern i fell in love with. So guys get thisif you love it. Get it here and it retails for £90. The sizes are going really fast so get it as soon as you can....

Christian Louboutin Vs Charlotte Russe

Charlotte Russe has made a copy of the Christian Louboutins Pigalle Crystal Encrusted Stiletto Pumps. I like these pumps because they are shiny and as we know, all things sparkly and shiny are in season right now. Get the Charlotte Russe version here for $25.

Alexander Wang Vs LuLu's

Everyone needs that little balck dress especially since we are in the holiday season. A look alike of the Alexander Wang's one shoulder dress has been spotted at LuLu's. It's a really pretty dress. It has been spotted on Rihanna and Nicky Hitlon. The Alexander Wang version retails for $595 and like most designer pieces, it is already sold out. So head over to Lulu's and get the look alike. Get it here for $56.

Balmain Vs Forever21

Who doesn't love Forever 21?They give us a copy of high end fashion at low end prices.Who doesnt love that?I spotted this copy of the Balmian jacket in their new magazine they give out to you in stores when you spend $40 or more. As soon as i saw it, I went online to look if they had it but they did not :-(. About 2 weeks later, I saw what looked like the jacket in one of their stores but I did not have the time to check it out and so when i got home, I went online and searched(the internet is my best friend) and I found it...O the delight!!! The Balmain version was spotted on Rihanna and Carrie Underwood and retails for $5,075. and is currently sold out. I love it. I havnt gotten the chance to go pick it up but I will when i have the time. Get it here

Balmain Inspired Jacket

I was browsing through a blog sometime in october and someone had blogged about this designer that makes inspired by pieces. I went to her store(she has the store on ) and i saw that she was selling a Balmain inspired jacket. The cool fact abot her jacket is that it is handmade and she meticulously puts every bit together. Well i ordered from her(the jacket cost $100;shipping included). The only problem is that the jacket took a whole month to get to me and i was really mad at the seller but once i got it, i was impressed. She made a good replica of the balmian jacket and the shoulder pads on them were awesome.She made them pointy exactly like the pads on the Balmain Jacket. i totally love. I have not rocked them yet and i do not know when i will rock them, but one thing is for sure; when i rock them, i'll def look fly as hell. Here is a picture of the Real Balmian Jacket(1st picture) and also a picture of the jacket i bought(2nd picture-picture gotten from the seller's store as i have not yet worn mine).
P.S the jacket i bought (the 2nd picture) is an inspired by piece and is not supposed to look 100% like the original version.

This is just a quick reminder for all those who live in states that have an H&M retail store. The Jimmy Choo collection will be released in stores tomorrow so please go to an H&M store and shop your heart out(although i think the quantity you can purchase is limited per person).

There will be shoes, clothes and purses made by Jimmy Choo for sale and of course for a lot less than it would normally cost. Please go out and buy. I know a lot of people who plan on lining up in front of the store by 5am. They will give the first 160 people on that line a beeper that gives them a time to come and shop. here are some Jimmy Choo things you will be able to buy at your nearest H&M store tomrrow.There will be so much more so please goooooooooooooooooooooooooo.

The look for less:Herve Ledger VS Lipsy

When Herve Ledger burst onto the fashion world, i couldnt get enough of his designs. Every celebrity from the Fabulous Victoria Beckham to Beyonce hit the red carpet rocking his designs. Over the summer,dresses and skirts inspired by Herve Ledgers bandage designs was spotted in most retail stores but there was one piece i could not find anywhere. The dress i am talking about was worn by Megan Fox when she made an apperance on the late show with david letterman. I almost nearly died searching every website for a look for less.I finally gave up looking for this dress. Well they say the best things come to you when you are not looking rite?I found a look for less that replicates this Herve Ledger dress so well.

Ahhhh.Don't we all love Christian Louboutin's? I'm sure by now, we are tired of seeing those celebrities flaunt their various collection of Loubotins everywhere they go. Well don't get jealous just yet. A lot of stores are now copying Christian Louboutin's precious designs and some have even gone as far as copying his red sole which is the most unique feature of his shoes.

Product Review

Hey guys. Some of you might have noticed I stopped blogging and that's cos i dint think a lot of people read my blog. I ran into a friend today and she actally told me she does and some of her friends do and so well i decided to keep blogging.
Today, I am going to do a quick product review on MAC's volcanic ash exfoliator. This product is absolutely fabulous. MAC actually came out with it last year as part of their limited edition collection. A lot of people loved this product and it was completely sold out everywhere. Then earlier this year, MAC came out with the volcanic ash again and this time, it was released as a regualr product and not a limited edition. I really do not know where to start from with this product. I have acne prone skin and since i got rid of my St Ives exfoliator for MAC's volcanic ash, my skin has never looked better. It makes your skin tighter, gets rid of blackheads and whiteheads and leaves your skin feeling sqeaky clean. Did i add that the ash used in this product is actually real ash gotten from a volcano?Yup it is.It costs about $20 and believe me you will not regret it. Definetely worth giving a shot.They also have a volcanic ash thermal mask, but I am yet to try it out.

YSL Vs Bebe

A each day goes by, i keep seeing high end pieces being replicated by a lot of middle-low end retailers and i must say i love it. This YSL booties have been spotted on several celebrites, one of whom is the fabulous Victoria beckham(i die everytime i see a picture of her..she is usually always decked out from head to toe in very expensive designers). The YSL booties retailed for $1055 and are currently sold out. However bebe has offered we fashionistas who have a budget the exact same look for less. The bebe version is called the Tyra Croco Ankel Bootie. They look exactly like the YSL version. The only difference i have noticed is that the bebe version is black while the YSL version is dark brown. Get the bebe booties here.They retail for $189 and sizes are limited. 

House of Harlow Vs Forever 21

I came across this necklace on the forever 21 website about 2 weeks ago. As at that time, they had the necklace in black and cream. However right now, all i can see available is the cream colored one. As soon as i saw this necklace, i was immediately reminded of the house of harlow version. At this time, i am not able to confirm how much the house of harlow version costs. Several websites have listed prices ranging from $56 to $125. The forever 21 version costs $14.80. I am not so into necklaces and so i would go for the forever 21 version. If you want the forever 21 necklace, get it here .

First Makup Post

I decided to do a makeup post today. I know its the weekend and a lot of people will definetly be partying or doing some form of going out. As we all know by now, fall is here and although this means we will be seeing a lot of warm and dark colors, it does not mean we have to get rid of all the color. A particular look that has been spotted on celebrities of late is "old Hollywood". This look usually features a lot of brown(for eyeshadow), some color for the cheeks and of course bold red lips. Some people usually go one step further by using a bronzer to give them that sparkling look. Here is a look i would like you all to try tonight. I actually tried this look yesterday night and it came out looking flawless. 
Note:You do not have to have all or any of the brand of makeup that is listed on the picture above. If you have a similar color in another brand, by all means use it. Click on the picture to make it bigger

The look for less:Christian Louboutin Miss Fortune lace up sandals

We all love Christian Louboutins. My second favorite celebrity(Kim Kardashian) has been seen rocking this heels everywhere. They are currently on sale for $790.25. If you can afford them, then by all means cop them here. However if you have a budget, do not despair. WetSeal has a pair that looks exaclty like the Louboutins(but of course without the red soles). Cop them here while supplies last. 

Rihanna:The Sequin look

I saw this picture of rihanna a while back and i must say i really do hate this look. However, a lot of people are Rihanna lovers who adore anything she wears. She wore this sequin get up on the 12th of Sept to the 2nd annual house of hype directors dinner. While browsing through Forever 21's website, i this floral metallic sequin pant and it immeditely reminded me of Rihanna's get up. I actually love this pants even though i am not a big fan of a similar pair Rihanna wore. Get it here.

Okay so by now i'm sure most of us are drooling over a lot of shoes from Christian Louboutin.

I found this grey studded shoes(pictured above) online and it immediately reminded me of the Christian Louboutin Studded heels even though it is not the same color. If you love this badgir/rockstar look, then pls smile because i am going to tell you where you can snatch them up for way less than the Louboutin's cost. These shoes cost $99(not bad if you ask me). Get it here. They are definetely a great alternative.
