{Splurge or Save}...Celebrity Edition Pt. 1

Confession: I watch Keeping Up with the Kardashians. I know, I know. . . But let's move on.
Kim wore this interesting two piece ensemble for the Cannes Film Festival. Do you remember who Gwenyth also wore it? (I'd love to know who you think wore it best!) Some people loved this, others did not. While I'm not a huge fan of its entirety, There are a few parts I love. . . Let's see how you can get this look for a lot cheaper!

1. Black mesh and lace over a nude sheath. Black is, like always, very on trend for the fall. The hint of "skin" really jazzes it up, though.

2. The emphasis on the waist is phenomenal with this skirt/top combination. Although it could flirt with the icky side, since it covers the navel and bares only 1.5-2 inches, it's simply sexy. The Dorothy Perkins dress I've selected does the opposite and features a lovely, black sash to emphasize your waist. 

3. I usually love a cap sleeve, but on this, I don't really care for it. It's interesting, but for our purposes, the sleeves are a tad impractical. So the save dress that you can wear is sleeveless. It'll be great for transition between all seasons.

  1. Okay, I love the save dress even more than the pricey one! And don't worry...you're not the only one who watches trashy tv when she gets the chance. I would sometimes watch Bridezilla (like RIGHT after our wedding late at night on the honeymoon), look at my husband and scream, "Bridezirrrra!" He probably regretted marrying me. :)
