How to Look Like a Million Bucks for Less

Once upon a decade ago, single-gals and twenty-something girls watched Carrie Bradshaw unfold an embracing truth, “When I first moved to the city, I would buy Vogue instead of food, because I just felt it nourished me more.”  Bravo!

It was a justifying moment. A truth many of us would never admit. For the first time in forever, we all realized that in New York City, A.K.A. Fashion Central, it was almost instinctual to choose labels over lunch, shoes over bills, and magazines over unlimited-metro cards. The twenty-something girl’s guilty pleasure of misplaced boundaries was exposed—and it felt good to be bad. Who cared if you slept on a mattress, at least you looked good. Right? Over the years we saw Carrie place Monolo’s before rent, and as a guilty shopaholics ourselves,  (let’s face it, anybody reading this is pretty much obsessed) we wanted to help wean your expensive taste to a more moderate/sensible budget.

The great thing about New York City, no matter how tight the budget, there is always “something” that mimics “Wait is that Emilio Pucci?” the world will never know. There are plenty of stores out there that furnish great items for bargain prices. All it takes is a little research. Sample sales will forever be your friends; Forever 21 will keep you young, and H&M posh. To show you how, let’s see how far $200 can take you.

Extreme Layering – The Trend This Winter

There is one fashion trend this year that is praised as the best – the extreme layering. The so called extreme layering was part of all major designers’ collection and represents a natural touch to your wardrobe.

The extreme layering winter clothing is fashionable and will keep you warm. In case you want to look trendy and modern, go for nomadic layering.

The nomadic layering represents carefree spirit and stylish appeal. Go for long knitted skirt; combine it with big knits or bigger coats and the ultra-long sock boots, which are the hit of the season.

The ponchos are also super modern. Another fashion combination is the fur coat with over-the knee boots and a mini knitted skirt.

The gypsy layering is eccentric too; therefore you can include more bright colors, combined with different fabrics: lace, satin and many others. The hats are also part of the hot layering trend.

Go for knitted hats with different patterns, if you want a more extravagant look. The fur hats are an absolute must for this trend, so pick one in dark violet color.

Remember that layering is also a matter of spirit, so experiment with the colors.

Sarah Jessica Parker: Get The Look

Sarah Jessica Parker may not be quite as outlandishly fashion-obsessed as her alter ego Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and the City, but this middle-aged working Mom walks her fair share of red carpets. She always brings the glamour, even if it’s understated.

On this occasion SJP wore an anything-but-simple, one-shoulder little black dress with exquisite ruching and gathering detail. She paired the piece with a bib necklace that almost works as a collar for the dress. Parker is one to layer lots of jewelry in this way to change the neckline of a top or dress and make it more special – it’s a great trick to have up your sleeve. Black polka dot stockings, satin pumps and a medium-sized hobo bag finish off the look.
