Designer Inspired Style on a Budget

February 2, 2018







This simple outfit has easily become one of my favorite outfits ever. What I love about this look is that it is inspired by designer pieces – and looks expensive – but is actually really affordable. The entire outfit (shoes included) comes in at around $300! The Gucci and Celine inspired pieces are, in my opinion, must-have items. I’ll talk more about each below!

As a whole, I like this outfit because it is so versatile. You could wear this to the office or to meet friends for dinner and drinks. I was surprised by how versatile this ruffle sleeve high collar top was. I bought it planning on wearing it with jeans and leather jacket as a casual winter date night look, but have actually worn it to work a lot! Unfortunately the exact top sold out before I could link it up. I did however find 3 similar tops and have linked them below if you are on the market for one!

Moving on to the rest of this designer inspired outfit! You may have caught last week’s work day outfit with this Gucci dupe belt. This is an accessory that I will be styling a lot over the coming months. It is a perfect dupe of the Gucci version, but with an under $20 price tag. I can’t recommend it enough!

Another item I can’t recommend enough is this Celine lookalike bag. The shape is a perfect dupe of the iconic Celine Luggage bag, in a tiny cross-body version. I personally love this size and was really impressed by the quality for the price. It’s a classic style that goes with so many outfits.

As you can probably tell this outfit post is not from good old Rain-couver haha. I shot this when I was in Los Angeles two weeks ago, and posting it now is definitely making me miss the beautiful LA weather. I am actually in the midst of planning my next vacation right now; and it will also be bringing me to the sunshine so I can’t wait!
