Stilettos Under $100

I recently did a post about the shoe designer, Brian Atwood, and one of my readers wrote a comment saying that they would like to see stilettos similar to Atwood’s without the hefty price. I mean, who can really afford those shoes?

So, here are shoes similar to Brian Atwood, but they won’t clean out your wallet. They are all under $100!

Atwood featured a stiletto with crossing straps just like these. These are for a fraction of the price. They also come in red and tan. They are by Nine West. At Zappos.com, they are $71.06

I showed a stiletto similar to this except that it was fuchsia. But, I love these by Me Too. It is very elegant and perfect for evening. They also come in dark brown and black. They are $88.95 at Nordstrom.com

These stilettos by J. Renee are great. I love the lizard print detail and the gold heel. They also come in a beautiful taupe color as well.  At Zappos.com, they are $74.95.

On Net-a-Porter.com, they have a pair of sandals by Atwood that look just like these. Those are $725. These, on the other hand, are only $78.95,  and they come in so many other colors too. You can find them at Zappos.com

Keep Your Pinky Up For Under $100

I get an email from Neimanmarcus.com the other day, and when I open up the email…BAM! A splash of pink is taking over my computer screen. Pink, pink everywere! Light pink, dark pink and every shade in between. So, I am thinking to myself  “Ok, I guess pink is in. Thank you, Neiman Marcus….your message has been received!”

The thing I love about the color pink is that it goes with EVERY skin tone. And you can mix and match different shades as well as other colors such as black, blue, green, orange, white, etc. I have done a little bit of research because who can really afford Neiman Marcus?

This dress from Forever 21 is so cute. It has a feather trim slip which is adds great detail. And, can you believe that it is only $20?

I really love is one piece bathing suit by Kimichi. It is 50s inspired, and it is very flattering. I love this sweet pink. Very lovely. It is $98 at Urbanoutfitters.com

I love, love, love this T-shirt dress from American Apparel! It is so cute and casual, but you can definitely dress it up with accessories. Wear this dress with a cute belt! It is only $30.

I love this Longchamp Mini. It is small, but you can fit your wallet, cell phone, keys, and lipstick (all of the essentials). This peony pink is adorable. It is $98 at Nordstrom.com

Tory’s Tunics

So, for those of you who know me know that I love Tory Burch. If only I could afford her; although, I do lug around her tote bag as my school bag now that I think about it. But, I am not going to talk about Tory Burch’s tote bags–although, they are fabulous–I wanted to talk about her tunics.

Now, tunics are really practical for spring and summer. They are super lightweight and so easy to wear. You can wear it as a cover-up over a bathing suit, wear it with skinny white jeans or a skirt and heals. They are so versatile.  Below are some of my favorites. You can find all of her tunics at Toryburch.com

Cashin Carry

So, I am loving Coach’s new line of bags called Bonnie. The line is named after the inspirational fashion designer, Bonnie Cashin. Like Cashin, this line likes to incorporate bright colors and industrial hardware. This line is perfect for spring.

This tote is perfect for either a day of shopping or as a laptop bag. I love the little coin purse on the side. The quote on the bag says, “I wouldn’t walk a block without my Cashin-Carry, especially down Madison Ave.” At Coach it is $298.

The Man

Today, I wanted to put the spotlight on designer, Brian Atwood. This guy does not get enough recognition to the world outside of celebrities and fashion shows.

Atwood is a model gone fashion designer. Before he created his own label, he became the first American designer to be hired at Versace in Milan. Celebrities such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Madonna, and Nicole Kidman have been seen wearing his amazing shoes. For more information about Brian Atwood, check out his website at Brianatwood.com
