every so often, an email hits my inbox and i just exclaim “yes, exactly!” when i open it. such was this email i received yesterday from kirna zabete. kz is every new yorker’s secret source for the latest and greatest in fashion lovelies, this fantastic store is finally offering its designer wares online.
i think each and every one of their picks is a flawless, investment-worthy choice…and, if you can swing it, you absolutely should. if nothing else, you should at least spend some time playing on their site…there are so, so many lovelies to ogle.
but i love this look so much that i’m going to give you some budget-friendly ways to get the look…so that you can look as hot as this picture without walking the streets begging for spare change to finance your fashion.
i love this version of the tie-neck blouse from banana republic (in the lovely purple, not that blah tan color), and it’s just $69. equally lovely is this version from marc by marc jacobs, marked down to $78 at nordstrom. but best of all is this stunner from roberto rodriguez, which i may even prefer to the original, on sale for $200.
and if those loooovely lanvins just don’t fit the budget, i’d swap for this version from bloch london for $163 – gorgeous (and a perfect match for the banana republic top above!)! for an even better steal, i have to admit that i would never have thought to check here, but plus-size site silhouettes has a quite lovely satin cap-toe flat (in sizes 7-12) for a cool $40. i’d go for the wine color, i think…perfect for this time of year!
the clutch is vastly more complicated, as i adore their choice and hate to mess with it. so…how about if i find the exact same alexander wang clutch for you at 50% off? yep…$325 at shopbop. don’t say i never did anything for you!
