It’s all too easy to fall down the Amazon Prime rabbit hole, isn’t it? But in the name of scoring some serious style that’s seriously affordable, it’s a journey I’m willing to take. And share my top 5 finds for Spring with you!
Gucci revved up their runway with luxe logo barrettes, and the next thing you know every fashionista’s hair was all aglitter. Despite the $400 price tag, these sparklers are on backorder. But why wait? For a few dollars versus hundreds, you can shine bright right now!
April showers may bring May flowers, but they also make figuring out how to fashionably fight the weather a challenge. Thanks to this lightweight, well-designed jacket you can stay warm and dry without sacrificing style. Roomy enough to layer a sweater underneath, this jacket is loaded with pockets and a detachable hood. Plus, its cinched waist creates a flattering silhouette for every body type. Love the striped lining too. And it comes in 16 colors. Bloggers have been raving about these best-selling all-weather booties, boasting about their quality, comfort and cute design. I’m partial to the camo, but there are six other color combos to choose from.
Phoebe Philo earned cult status with her decade long run as the creative force behind Céline. She was a genius at creating clothes and accessories that were wearable and sophisticated but never boring. Case in point: her oversized Alphabet charms were the most Instagrammed accessory of 2018. Fashionistas are still mourning her departure from the label and her original charms are no longer sold in stores or on the website, but you can celebrate her design inspiration with these amazing and amazingly affordable dupes.
Maybe it’s all the NYC buzz about the Museum of Natural History’s T-Rex exhibit, but when I spotted this mini crossbody bag I was instantly captivated by its cute-chic dino vibe. It’s pretty darn irresistible in pink, too. Well-designed and well-crafted in faux (vegan!) leather, it looks a lot more expensive than its below $20 price tag. And it’s sized to hold your phone, wallet, keys and a few other essentials. I’m counting on this adorable crossbody bag to start a lot of fun conversations. And yes, I know it’s a Stegasaurus…
