Lookbook Ripoff! #1

Lookbook Ripoff is where I dig some faboo outfit out of some EXTREMELY expensive boutique, and copy it for super-duper less money. There’s no reason you can’t get the hottest looks for less. Damnit!

Today’s look comes from PinkMascara.com.

Beautiful, right? Well, it’d better be for a collective credit card payment of $1,863!!!
OUT. RAGEOUS. For an outfit so simple, we should be able to whip up a doppelganger in no time.

Let’s start out with the allegedly $110 grey shirt. Let’s try this one instead:

This shirt is all about flowy-ness, so you may want to order a size up for sheer tunic-y-ness. My deepest apologies for the abuse of hyphens in this description. You can find this shirt for a whopping $13.80 at Forever21. Steal!

So instead of $158 J Brand black pants, how about some o’ this…:


While the pants from the lookbook might be courderoy, these slim knit pants from Forever21 will set you back only $24.80. They’ll fit super-snug into those hot boots and show of your glorious gams.

Okay, it’s the moment of truth – let’s find some boots that DON’T cost us $679… Hopefully, that won’t be too hard at all:

These hot puppies have a bit of a thinner heel, but the height on the upper will give that sleek, slightly equestrian look that’s so lush and classy. AND – instead of paying that huge, bold number up there, try only spending $30.99 at GoJane. A little less heartbreaking, right?

Right.

Bag & Accessories = $1000+. RIDICULOUS. Absolutely ridiculous. Try:

The BAG (previously $409):


Forever21; $10.80

The necklace(s) (previously $200+):


Lulu’s Fashion Lounge, $11.00
Bracelet(s) (previously $250+):


Lulu’s Fashion Lounge, 9.00

So there we have it. We’ve efficiently created a hot look from a designer lookbook. Let’s check out the price difference…

ORIGINAL LOOKBOOK: $1,863.00
H&C RIPOFF: $100.89

Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE designer stuff… but as a lowly student/blogger/photographer/newspaper editor – I just can’t do it. Does that mean I’m going to walk around in my PJs until I hit it big? NO! It means that I will CHEAT and FAKE IT until I’m super famous and fabulous enough to afford everything. 😉

xoxo!
