Look for Less: Charlotte Olympia Kitty Flats

Hey everyone! So I've been seeing these Charlotte Olympia Kitty Flats all over instagram lately and I think they are the cutest flats ever. I went on the Charlotte Olympia website and realized that they were $495. I am a little reckless with my shoes, and would be so nervous wearing a pair of shoes that cost that much. So I decided to order a pair of look-a-like's from Delia's. A girl at my school has these and they are adorable in person. I'm so excited I found them (and on sale too). The grand total of my purchase , with shipping included, was $14.89. CRAZYYYY. They are on sale for $9.99 and I got standard shipping for $6.00. Using the promo code "DELIAS5" I received an extra 20% off. And to make it even better, they are buy one get one free so you can have a backup pair ;). The Delia's shoes ended up costing $480 less than the Charlotte Olympia version.
 
Here's a few photos of the Charlotte Olympia flats vs. The Delia's flats

Look for Less: Zara Blanket Scarf



Hey everyone! Since the Zara tartan plaid blanket scarf came out last year I loved it, but could not get my hands on it because I don't live near Zara and it sold out so quick online. Also the price was pretty expensive for one scarf in my opinion. Over the weekend I went shopping and stopped in Forever 21, and found the perfect look alike for fall.  The quality is also fantastic, something I wasn't expecting. And guess how much it was? Only $7.80, doesn't get much better. Run to your nearest Forever 21 and pick yours up before they run out. ;)
 
Here's a few photo's of the Zara blanket scarf, and the Forever 21 scarf. you can barely tell the difference.
 
 
Here's the Forever 21 version! It's also online here.
 

 
Here's the Zara version!

Camo

Happy first day of fall everyone! I am so excited to layer ,and wear my J. Crew Camo vest. I got this vest last year , but J Crew Factory has a very similar version here. I paired my vest with this super comfy sweatshirt dress, and a button down from Kohl's. My Old Navy Leopard sneakers added the perfect touch to outfit. My monogrammed ring from www.lovealwaysbysd.com is 15% with code "belleoftheball45".
 
 Enjoy your first day of fall!

Gingham and Poppy Clips

Hey everyone! Today I'm styling my favorite Poppy Clips For fall. They are not only adorable, but all profits from the sales of these Poppy Clips go to a 17 month year old girl named Bailey who  is currently fighting Stage IV Neuroblastoma.
 
The mustard yellow color is perfect to pair with navy! I paired it with my second favorite J Crew vest (herringbone being #1 of course). And a special thanks to my mom for letting me borrow her gorgeous purse. :)
 
Enjoy!
