Designer look for less: Carrie's blue Manolo Blahnik wedding shoes

We've all been in love with Carrie's blue Manolo's from her wedding day in Sex and the City.  And seeing Olivia Palermo wear it for her wedding pictures just fed our obsession even more.   Whether its the romantic symbolism behind it or our plain old love for fashion and a beautiful shoe, it's one of the most coveted shoes in the world.  Unfortunately it comes with a steep price. If you have a grand to spare, you can get it here.  Or if you're like me and need a more reasonably priced alternative, i found a great version by Audrey Brooke called the Sarah pump.

 Its absolutely beautiful and still conjures up images of this in my head:

Olivia Palermo - Look for Less

Olivia Palermo's effortless style is impeccable, but the best part of her looks is that you probably own most of the things she wears. You'd have to invest in a few key statement pieces, but other than that you can recreate her look for a fraction of the price.

Total cost for this whole look: $205
Cost for Olivia's shoes alone: $500 (Manolo Blahnik Amielia pump)

PS - if you don't have most of these items in your closet - you should - they're staples that you can use everyday to recreate different looks.  Invest in a good pair of skinny jeans with a hint of destruction, invest in a good white collared button down shirt, invest in a good pair of printed pumps, and every girl's closet needs some fur.

Paris in 48 hours

Spending 48 hours in Paris with my love was one of the most exhilarating, exciting, and most memorable trips of my life.  My pictures don't do the magic of that beautiful city justice.
