the look :: for less

lookforless1

It's a happy Thursday because ::

a) it's almost the weekend, and

b) we're kicking off "The Look for Less"!

I constantly see fashion trends and outfits that I am drooling over, but simply could never justify or afford. One of my favorite coveted brands is Alice + Olivia. With beautiful, unique & trendy dresses starting at hundreds of dollars, it's a brand that's not exactly in most of our (my) price range. Today I'm featuring two of my favorite winter trends :: Leather + open-front cardigans.

Enter, Alice + Olivia "Scottie Shearling," currently ON SALE {enter jaw drop} for $837, marked down from $1395.

This is a super chic and stylish open front cardigan with leather. Perfect for cold weather, day-to-night, and dressier occasions. I love everything about this look, except the price!

Now, enter the Anthropologie "Ecliptic Cardigan," giving you the same effect at around 1/8 of the price {$98}. Music to your wallet's ears! When shopping with one of my clients a few weeks ago we actually purchased this open-front cardigan from Anthro. So I can tell you first-hand that yes, it is just as dreamy as it looks on the website.

LIFE.STYLED's Christmas Favorites

This Christmas brought lots of goodies; among them many fashion and beauty favorites! {Here are a few of LIFE.STYLED's favorite things from Santa} xmas blog

1) Fur Collar Coat :: This winter fur is in. And we're loving the fur collar trend on coats like this Tory Burch coat, in navy.

2) LORAC Pro Eyeshadow Palette :: This shadow palette has just about any color you could ever need; from mattes to shimmers, from light to dark. I have used it EVERY day since Christmas!

3) Booties :: Booties are one of our favorite trends; they are so versatile and can be dressed up or down depending on your outfit. These Tory Burch Milan booties are the perfect shade of camel, and the wedge is super comfortable.

4) Embellished Sweaters :: Ever feel like you want to wear a sweater, but don't think it's dressy or polished enough for the occasion? Enter, embellished sweaters. Like this one, from LOFT - with gold sequin embellishments on each shoulder and always-classic black and white stripes.

5) Philosophy "Purity" Facial Cleanser :: Enough said! This face wash smells amazing, takes all of your makeup off, and leaves your face feeling soft, smooth and pure - the name says it all.
