The Look for Less-Emm Alt

 

“Pardon? Je suis très, très stylish? Oui! Oui!”. Ok, my French may be rusty, but Emmanuelle Alt’s style is fresh to death.

Happy Labour Day weekend, Lovelies!

Look For Less: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

The Look for Less-Rosie HW

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is spot-on in this chic Fall look. Opting for cognac boots instead of the expected basic black add interest to an outfit with no apparent accessories.

Look For Less: Keri Russell

The Look for Less-Keri Russell

 

Felicity! 16 years on and I really can’t recall any notable roles Keri Russell has starred in since, but I’ll put it down to her choice of genre (Sci-Fi, Hollywood Blockbuster)…not my thing. But LOOK at her style! Simple. Understated. Chic. Utter perfection in my books.

Do you love this look?

Look For Less: Miranda Kerr

The Look for Less-Miranda Kerr

 

Love her or loathe her, there’s no escaping Miranda Kerr. H&M, Victoria’s Secret, Swarovski, Mango, Qantas, Escada,  Instagram…if you’ve used a smartphone in the last 5 years, you’ve become accustom to seeing Kerr’s cherubic face heading a host of high-profile campaigns, from international apparel chains to major airlines.

Gingham Goodness

Gingham


Preppy, fresh and thoroughly rooted in summertime: gingham evokes imagines of picnics, BBQs and beachside strolls.

Whether or not your summer vacation includes an extended sailing trip down the Eastern Seaboard (sigh…), or steamy summer Sundays spent lazing at an inner city pool (hands up!), these preppy pieces are sure to please.

The Look for Less-Lizzy Vanderligt

 

A big ol’ floral print, overalls and espadrilles = respectable adult jammies & slipper combo. Hello, Sunday morning market!

Are you into the overalls trend, or is this look a bit too infantile for your tastes?

How To Wear Daytime Sequins

Daytime Sequins- Faded Denim

 

Daytime sequins are a fabulous thing. They brighten up a mundane 9-5 wardrobe, make a regular day feel sort of special, and let’s face it- give our colleagues something to chirp about at the water cooler. What’s not to love?

These are my three favourite ways to incorporate a little sparkle in a daytime look. What are yours?

 

Daytime Sequin- Oxford

 

Daytime Sequins- Sneakers
The Look for Less-Mira Duma

 

Russian socialite Miroslava Duma is a haute little mixmaster. Although there’s not a thing “budget” about her, her love of exaggerated silhouettes, bright colours, bold prints and intricate embellishment make her a fun street style star to follow. This particular look is a rarity: subdued (for her) and easily attainable for under $100!
