Fashion For Mom: Cute Clothes on a Budget

outfit in my closet I’m in a little bit of a navy phase right now.  I want to paint my bedroom a nice navy.  I just bought a pretty adorable navy Ipad case.  And I am dreaming of the new navy and white sheets I want (now I just have to actually find them….)  So when I saw this outfit on In My Closet’s Polyvore account I just knew I needed to recreate it!

Navy Cardigan original and look alike

The sweater on the left was from the original outfit.  It was originally $12 from a store in the UK (sold out).  The cardigan on the right is the look alike (and pretty spot on!) from Amazon!  There are lots of colors to choose from.  Prices range from $11.99 - $19.99.  This runs small so order a size big!

outfit original and look alike white tank

The white tank on the left was the original.  It cost $20 from a store that I’m not sure where it is.  (The only words I could read were Kate Moss!)  The look alike is a tank from Target on sale for $7.00!

Outfit jeans the original and look alike

The jeans on the left are $195 True Religion Jeans (original picture).  The look alike jeans on the right are $24.50 (Shipped!) from Amazon! (Get them here.)

outfit original and look alike shoes

I’m in love with these navy scalloped edge shoes.  Unfortunately they are sold out!  I found a pair on Etsy for $109.  These are handmade, Suede shoes (blue suede shoes non the less!)  The reviews are fantastic.  I am really excited to order a pair for myself!

outfit original handbag and look alike

A yellow handbag just screams spring to me!  The original bag (left) is the Ps1 Proenza Schouler satchel and has a price tag of $1,812.  The bag on the right (from Buxton) is still a great yellow color, but has a much more doable price tag of $69.99!

Outfit scarf original and look alike

The scarf on the left (the original) is from Banana Republic (now sold out) and cost $50.  Our look alike scarf (I suppose we should say inspired) is only $15 shipped on Amazon!

outfit the original and inspired bracelet

The original cuff bracelet is from Coach (sold out) and cost $58.  I saw the cross cuff bracelet on Etsy and fell in love.  Only $15.00!

So in total the original outfit cost $2,177!  Our look alike outfit comes to just $260.48 for all 7 pieces!

      The shoes are a little splurge but they look so luxurious! I’m pretty sure they would soon become a favorite of mine! :)

    I am loving your look alike. That is one hefty price for the original. Don’t think I’ll ever spend that much on an outfit although I do spend that much for the jeans. I love designer jeans and they’re really the only ones that fit me great. Joe’s Jeans and 7 For All Mankind are my favorites.

    I am not very trendy, so the accessories aren’t really my style, bt I love the tank, jeans and sweater! All 3 of those pieces could be worn so many times with other thihngs already in my closet. Great deals!

    I have studied fashion and I am always amazed at the prices these brands and designers charge for their products.Having said that I love the Buxton handbag. Being the frugal person that I am, I would for it to be 50% before I buy it.

    Just got my cardigan in the mail. I ordered it and the scarf and immediately wore them both out the door. Love how spending 20 dollars makes me feel a bit more stylish. I can’t wait to see what you post next. Thanks for helping this mom of three boys out with a little style in my life
