How many times has this happened to you?…
You’re cruising the internet reading your favorite celebrity blog and see someone wearing an outfit that you just have to have!
Well, if you’re like me, you don’t want to pay the thousands of dollars for that outfit either.
So today, I’m going to show you how to find your favorite celebrity’s look for less.
Finding the celebrity look for less is like shopping the sales rack – you have to be patient and take the time to search because you may just find that gem you’ve been looking for!
I chose this Kim Kardashian look below from recently to show you – and since Kim Kardashian’s style is one of the more popular celebrities that I frequently get asked by my clients to personal shop for, I figured it would help a lot of you out!
When I start, I look at everything I want to copy from the style – down to the nail polish. For this look, the main components are earrings, black lace top, bra, black leather pants, and lace shoes.
We’ll start shopping this celebrity look for less with the lace top.
Naturally, our first instinct is to type into google “black lace see through top” and see what comes up. Once I do that – I find a lot of short sleeve tops so I’m going to narrow my search even more and search “black lace long sleeve see through top”. After searching for about 10 minutes through the search results – I come across a long sleeve black lace top at guess.com that I like and is at a good price point at $79.00.
Here is our black lace top for this look:
1. Black Lace Top – Guess – $79.00 http://shop.guess.com/en/Catalog/View/W23H50K1NT0?CMP=CSE-GESShopzilla&mr:referralID=2025d3ca-2e90-11e2-97b3-001b2166becc
Onto the leather pants! Since real leather pants would be quite expensive, I’m going to look for some faux leather pants or leggings. My first thought was to go to forever21.com since they always have a wide variety of leggings, but they didn’t have any. And then another website popped into my head – onlyleggings.com – they MUST have some faux leather leggings! And they definitely did.
I chose this faux leather legging:

Ok, now for the shoes. Endless.com used to be my go to for shoes, but recently they were bought by amazon.com so now I have to go to amazon.com to find my shoes. I really miss the functionality and look of endless.com, but what can ya do? So, I’m going to challenge myself and not find these shoes on amazon.com! 🙂 I first googled “black lace shoe” but after seeing my results realized I needed to google “black lace heel” and found a great pair by Chinese Laundry for $89.99.
Here are our fabulous black lace heels:

Now, to find a few accessories to complete our Kim Kardashian look. When googling “black beaded earrings”, I ran across a website thefind.com. Seriously, the best website ever! You can pretty much type anything your looking for into the search box and it will search hundreds of stores for you. You will definitely be able to find any item you need there!
Here are our black beaded earrings:

The last piece that’s missing from our look is something to go underneath our black lace top. You can choose to for the exact look from the picture and wear a similar strapless bra underneath or be a little more conservative and wear a tank top underneath. I’m going to go in the middle and choose a bandeau tube top. Once again, my first thought is to go to forever21.com because I know they have a lot of options and basics. But, once again they have disappointed me. *Sigh*
So, instead through google shopping I found this black bandeau tube top:
5. Black Bandeau Tube Top – $9.99 – http://www.bonanza.com/listings/Fits-S-M-L-Black-Smooth-Strapless-Wire-Free-Bandeau-Top-Tube-Bra/89825191?gpid=44791518541&gpkwd=&goog_pla=1&as=score_threshold_5&gclid=CPOIo5mx0LMCFal_Qgodvn0Afw
So, there you have it! Your Kim Kardashian celebrity look for less! 🙂 A whole outfit for less than $250!
