Luxe for Less: Kim Kardashian

Like everyone else in the world, we may be a little envious of Kim Kardashian’s perfect derriere and amazing curves, but we are also a little jealous of her fabulous wardrobe. She definitely knows how to put together an amazing outfit. She was recently seen leaving a church service in this pink and peach number, and we fell in love with the fun colors. Since Kim’s gorgeous Chanel bag alone will set you back more than $3,000, we decided to create the look for a more affordable price. The total for our version comes in at a mere $184.30. That’s thousands of dollars you can throw on your bed and roll around in! Or put in a savings account if you feel that’s the more responsible choice.

Luxe for Less: Carly Rae Jepsen

You may not immediately recognize the name Carly Rae Jepsen, but we’re pretty sure you’d recognize her hit song Call Me Maybe immediately. The 26-year-old won third place on the fifth season of Canadian Idol in 2007, but has just recently risen to stardom in the U.S. thanks to Interscope Records and her new buddy, Justin Bieber. While we, of course, love Jepsen’s amazing voice, we are also loving her style. She always manages to look classy and elegant while also maintaining her youthful and innocent look. She recently rocked a stunning blue dress with yellow heels at the premiere for Katy Perry: Part of Me, and we loved it so much, we just had to recreate the look. While Jepsen’s gorgeous dress, created by the Turkish designer Cengiz Abazoglu, will burn a pretty large whole in your pocket, our version of her outfit will only set you back  about $120. While we love Jepsen’s floral printed clutch, we switched it out for a slightly dressier metallic and lace version.

Luxe for Less: Chloe Grace Moretz

You may remember actress Chloe Grace Moretz from her fantastic portrayal of Hit-Girl in Kick-Ass or her stunning role as Isabel in Hugo, but we are loving this talented beauty right now for her chic style. The 16-year-old has been gracing the big screen since 2005, and we have loved watching her grow into a stylish teenager. Moretz was recently seen wearing this adorable outfit cruising through the airport. We love that she looks so comfortable, but also so effortlessly stylish. Naturally, we had to recreate her fashion forward look. Although we love the cozy cardigan Moretz is sporting, we changed it out for a blazer in the same hue. There’s just something about a structured blazer that manages to look put-together and cool at the same time. While Moretz’s leather pants alone will probably set you back more than $1,000, our version only costs about $100 total.

Luxe for Less: Nicki Minaj in “Beez in the Trap”

(Note: The video contains explicit lyrics and adult imagery)

Between the trippy beat and all that booty, you may have missed some of  the sick fashion in Nicki Minaj’s latest vid, “Beez in the Trap.” While we don’t like to play favorites, we couldn’t help but feel particularly proud when we saw the Harajuka Barbie shaking her derriere in our elastic band leopard jumpsuit. Don’t believe us?

What about now? Admittedly, our model doesn’t have quite as much badonkadonk as ol’ Nicki, but we still think she looks pretty damn good. By the way, if you want to get Nicki’s look we have just a few of these jumpsuits left.

If you like this look, but don’t think you can  commit to such a daring piece, try one of the three options below.


1. zebra cut-out sleeve jumpsuit
2. cut-out jumpsuit
3. elastic band cut-out jumpsuit


Do you guys think you could work this look? Where would you rock it?

Luxe for Less: Rihanna’s Modern Pin Up Look

During our daily gossip blog stroll we saw an outfit so undeniably perfect for GoJane we were forced to put down our latte and take a deep breath. The source of our joy? Rihanna. Of course our loyal readers already know we’re a fan of RiRi’s style, but this particular ensemble combined some of our fave things and we genuinely couldn’t wait to assemble a copycat of this casual, yet sexy, look. Oh, we should mention one major difference: Rihanna’s ensemble cost over $2,500, thanks to the Miu Miu heels, Chanel scarf, and Vlieger & Vandam bag, while ours will run you less than $115.

1. heart print scarf
2. low scoop neck top
3. origami bird charm necklace
4. destroyed cuff shorts
5. rhinestone trim watch
6. perforated trim clutch
7. pocketed denim shirt
8. polka dot peep-toe heel
 

What did you guys think of this look? Is it something you would wear out? Rihanna happened to wear this after dinner at Giorgio Baldi in Malibu, but we definitely see this look working for a casual date in the park or brunch with your girls.

Luxe for Less: Charlize Theron

Depending on age and musical preferences, there are several possibilities that come to mind when you hear the word ‘monster’- maybe it’s Lady Gaga, the classic Nickelodeon cartoon, or the gritty film starring the lovely African-born Charlize Theron.  And while we could probably do a Luxe for Less on all these topics, today we’re focusing on the latter by way of Theron. After all, this beauty rarely fails to make a fashionable impression, but we suspect that it’s pretty easy to do that when you’re the face of Dior. For those of us not blessed with model good looks and a movie star budget, we created a similar look. Granted, our version will cost approximately $125 whereas Theron’s outfit was well over $2,000 thanks to her choice of a Stella McCartney blazer, J Brand jeans, a Thakoon top, Givenchy heels, and Anita Ko jewelry.

1. flyaway blazer
2. dotted peter pan collar top
3. pocketed jeggings
4. strappy peep-toe platforms

Were you a fan of this look? Truthfully, we are definitely loving this- it’s simple, elegant, and could transition nicely from the office to a date.

Look For Less: Beyonce

Lady B has been on top of the fashion game for the past decade and even while preggers she managed to look all sorts of hot. We know that we’ll never land the Hova (question: did we ever want to?) or manage to look as good in nude pantyhose as the queen B, but her fashion sense might be a little more obtainable… or is it?   After all, snagging the R&B songstress’ signature style is nothing more than a sweet dream for most us because this is the woman who has advised us to upgrade to pricey designer goods. So, what’s a budding diva to do? Get the look for a fraction of the cost from GoJane– we put together a slamming outfit together for under $175!

1. design bridge sunglasses
2. buckle strap leatherette jacket
3. flutter sleeve scoop top
4. silky printed pants
5. lace up leatherette boot
