Miranda Kerr Style For Less

March 2, 2010 by  
Filed under Celebrities

Miranda Kerr I love it when celebs have their own unique style that they stick to instead of wearing anything and everything that is has been dubbed “on-trend” at the moment. At the top of that list is Miranda Kerr. When she’s not modeling bikinis or unmentionables, she tends to go for simple, versatile basics that create a statement-making look when paired together.

I love the idea of throwing a long black blazer over a simple striped dress and casual flip flops. The final element, a quilted black purse with chain accents, adds just the right touch of sophistication to the look.

We often rely too much on our jewelry for sparkle. If you are of the opinion that other accessories can and should be used to dazzle, then the Franchi ‘Carrie – Crystal Cage’ Frame Bag is for you.

The crystal net surrounding this gorgeous satin clutch is to die for. With New Year’s just around the corner, your purse deserves to be dripping in diamonds just as much as you do! Those who wish to channel an old Hollywood glamor look will also love the vintage-style kiss-lock closure on this clutch.

In addition to plum, the Crystal Cage bag is also available in black, whine and champagne. I want it in all four colors!

Wristlets: Every Partygoer’s Must-Have

I’ve suddenly realized how irritated I get every time I carry a purse when I’m out at crowded parties or clubs. Be it be a big clutch or a small shoulder bag, it gets pulled every which way each time someone brushes past me and gets in the way while I’m dancing. As a result, I am now a huge wristlet fan. These convenient “mini-wallets” as I like to call them provide just enough space for my credit cards, cash, ID and keys. Whether I use the strap to wear it around my wrist or put in my pocket, it doesn’t get in my way–cute AND convenient!

Historic moment: StealThisDress! is reviewing its first “splurge worthy” purse. We’ve chosen Marc Jacobs’ phenomenal ‘Stardust Cecillia’ Studded Leather Satchel as one of the “it bags” for this fall.

Sprinkled with delightful goldtone studs, the ‘Stardust Cecillia’ does not lack sparkle. MJ even finds a way to serve up the shoulder strap with a generous dose of fabulosity in the form of a 14 inch gold chain. These metallic elements are right on target for next season. And what better color to take you into fall than a delicious purple?

Just imagine how amazing this bag will look with a cute little pea coat and boots. Yum!

Designer handbags. They are the obsession of the majority of the female population, to the point that there are dozens of blogs devoted solely to covering the latest and greatest purses. Oh, why do they have to be so #$@$ expensive?! Argh.

If designer bags are as touchy of a subject for you as they are for me, have a look at Baghaus, whose specialty is designer and celebrity inspired styles. Their selection is quite large. Animal print, quilted a la Chanel, faux croc–you name, they got it.

I also love that almost every style is available in a whole bunch of colors. I spotted four or five bags that I’m dying to get just while browsing the first page.

In case you need a reason/justification to get a new bag–Baghaus is having a massive sale right now. Combined with the already affordable prices, this is a such a spectacular deal.

Lauren Conrad

As requested by one of our readers, this week we bring to you the look for less a la Lauren Conrad. In the last couple of weeks I’ve finally been able to get caught up on Lauren’s last season on The Hills. The trailers for upcoming episodes make it clear that her replacement–frenemy Kristen Cavallari–will cause more drama than Lauren ever did in her 5 seasons on the show. While we are way overdue for new story lines on The Hills, I’ll miss following Lauren and her experience in the fashion industry.
