I spent a beautiful Saturday evening with friends at “The Gatsby Getaway”. It was such a fun evening at the most beautiful Victorian home with great food vendors and ’20s music to dance to. Here’s what I wore:

  • A French dress stolen from my mother’s closet circa 1996
  • Kors Michael Kors Nude Pumps
  • A Forever21 Braided Silver Headband
  • Rings & things
These BCBGeneration trousers may have been the best thing I’ve found at TJ Maxx in a long time. I wore this look to a Sex in the City themed party a couple months ago, and felt the need to share it officially. Here’s how I wore them:
A Forever21 Bandage Bandeau
BCBGeneration High Waist Fuchsia Trousers
Pour La Victoire Wedges (not that you can see them)
A Forever21 Tiered Rhinestone Necklace
J.Crew Bracelet
Snakeskin Clutch from Target
Rhinestone Earrings from Forever21

Last weekend I purchased this adorable dropped waist cotton dress from Old Navy for $25, and played around with dressing it up and down. Here’s how I have worn it.

  • BCBG MaxAzria Snakeskin Pumps (found at Nordstrom Rack for $50)
  • Michael Kors Oversized Two Tone Watch

This gorgeous dress is, by far, the best broke girl find I have purchased to date. I purchased this brand new ABS by Allen Schwartz gown off of eBay with the Lord & Taylor tag still attached, priced at $530. I bid on it, and won it for $29. Yes, seriously. The front is identical to the dress I wore in our engagement photos, and it’s a size 8, but I will get it altered for about $20.

If you’re broke like me and will never, ever own this Cartier Love Bracelet, that’s okay. I stumbled across these “inspired by Carter”, (*cough* knock off) stainless steel bracelets from LaCoquetteBoutique on Etsy that I’ve deemed to be a great broke-girl-friendly alternative. What’s even more exciting is that they come with a lil’ screwdriver too. This is the closest I’ll ever get to the real thing. Happy shopping, xoxo
