Look for Less…

I have a lot of people ask me how to shop on a budget, how to put things together, etc. So, I thought I would attempt a ‘look for less’ posting for people to gain inspiration from, as well as information on where I found the items to create the look, etc. 

Here is my first “look for less” - 

Look for Less

Black and white is all the rage this season! And, Jessica Alba pulls it off, beautifully, in this graphic checked dress. Yes, I have to admit, at first,  her dress reminded me of the checkered flag at the races. But, found myself wanting to create a similar look for a fundraising event that was coming up! 

I found this dress at Marshalls! LOVE IT! Super comfortable with a slight ombre vibe with the graphic pattern. And, who doesn’t love a great pair of red heels to add some ‘wow’ to a black and white look! 

What do you think? 

Black/White  Anne Klein Print Dress: Marshalls, $39.99

Red Nine West Heels: Marshalls, $39.99

Black Clutch: Macy’s, $26.99

Red Glass Earrings: JCPenney, $10.00
