Get The Look For Less X Fashion Dupes

I started this blog with the intentions to help my readers find the best deals and steals, while also feeling confident in what they put on their body. I have noticed that SO many boutiques, clothing lines, and other stores that sell apparel overprice everything! If you're interested in getting the look for less on my favorite fashion pieces then stay tuned!! XO
I plan on doing these fashion dupes monthly because Im always finding steals on the trendiest apparel and accessories!
Fashion Dupe #1:
Floral dresses will always be a classic for summertime. Whether you prefer loose fitting pieces, or fit and flattering items, you can find so many inexpensive items. I have the dupe version of this dress in two colors and it is not only ADORABLE but it is comfortable and practical. I found the exact same dress on Amazon Prime AND it was $30 cheaper.
You can find this inexpensive dupe here!
Fashion Dupe #2: 
Hats are EVERYTHING in 2019. A wide brim hat can spice up any outfit you throw on, it can cover up a bad hair day, or it can block the sun in the summertime. I would suggest having at least one neutral colored straw fedora/wide brim hat in your closet... or ten! I adore the Lack of Colors brand and all of their trendy hats, but I don't think I will ever be able to splurge on a hat that can only be worn in the warm seasons. Luckily, I found a similar option on Forever 21 for a more appropriate price!! You could save over $70 by getting the look for less!

Fashion Dupe #3: 
Alright, I am guilty of spending TOO much money on these Steve Madden studded sneakers for $90. It was an impulsive decision but I should have done my research on these spunky sneaks a little more because Shein has super similar shoes and I could have saved over $60! White sneakers are a must have in your wardrobe, but a pair of white sneakers with a pop of color is hands down amazing! I love the edgy touch with the studded outline along with the platform bottom.

Fashion Dupe #4: 
High waisted bikinis are beyond perfect this summer. They hide the food baby in your stomach, the "bloats" from that time of the month, and all around it is flattering and creates an hourglass effect. Not everyone loves a crisp white bikini but I love a bright look. I love this duped v neck line bikini from Amazon Prime. The quality is thick and durable, and the all around appearance looks luxury. You could save $180 on this seasonable piece.
You can find the dupe here! It comes in so many adorable colors.
Fashion Dupe #5:
This wouldn't be a summer blog post with some sunnies! I am borderline obsessed with these hexagon shaped sunglasses under $13 that look so similar to Ray Bans. I have them in a few colors and they fit the face perfect! You can save $165 by getting the look for less.

Thank you SO much for reading my loves. Happy shopping!

Summer Staples

What’s up loves!! I cannot wait to share my holy grail summer necessities with you all. I’ll be honest, I am not a big fan of change. I hardly ever switch up my make up, skincare routine, or hair products. Once I find something I am in love with, I stick with it. My summer essentials could easily stay the same for the next 5 years and I would be content!

Summer Staple #1: Small Accessories With a Big Impact

Let’s start off with my essential accessories in the summertime. I am loving the chunky hoop earring trend more than anything this season. I purchased these small gold hoops (30 mm) from Amazon Prime way back and I have been wearing them nearly everyday since. My favorite part of these inexpensive earrings are the clipped backing of the earring. Losing small things is like my job- I am horrible with keeping track of my items, especially an earring back. These earrings were made for me. Along with the thick hoops, I have been obsessed with puka shell necklaces. This bohemian statement necklace brings me back to my childhood days! This piece screams summer and it looks adorable styled with several gold chains or multiple necklaces. Lastly, Quay Australia sunglasses are my absolute favorite brand. I prefer Quay eyewear over any designer brand because of the pricing and unique pieces. I have countless amounts of sunnies designed by them that I have collected over the years and they are timeless. I wear these specific sunglasses from Quay Australia
daily and I always receive compliments. They are my go-to pair and I don’t see that changing anytime soon.  

Summer Staple #2: Beloved Beauty Products

I'd rather go completely natural in the summertime with no make up but when I do decide to glam up, I have a lot of fun using my creative side. My favorite foundation is the Estée Lauder Double Wear but in the hot, sunny, sweaty summer, I prefer a foundation with SPF to protect my skin. The IT cosmetics CC cream is comfortable on my skin and it is overall perfect for summer. My favorite part of my make up routine is the eye shadow portion and the smoky eyes tricks I can mess around with. I wear the same colors schemes year round (I’m boring)!! Mauves, pinks, and oranges are my signature look and between the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance palette and the Tarte Cosmetics Tartelette in Bloom palette, my money was well spent. I prefer the Tarte palette in Bloom sometimes because it is a smaller size and it Is easy to travel with. I said it before, and I’ll say it again... I cannot stand doing my hair. I don’t know why, but I dread doing anything hair related! On that note, dry shampoo is my best friend. The Not Your Mother’s Beach Babe dry shampoo has a fresh scent and leaves your hair with volume and cleaner. I have travel size bottles that I bring everywhere with me! 

Summer Staple #3: Twist of Trends

I love adding a twist of my own detail on my outfits to spice things up! Whether it be a bold accessory, hair clips, or a mix of prints, I love it all. I have a whole blog post on my hair accessory essentials coming soon and I am beyond excited! My ultimate summer staples that create a trendy image would be a wide brim hat and a hair scarf. I purchased this simple hat years ago, yet it feels brand new. The original band on the fedora is black but I added my favorite hair scarf to make it more summery. I wear this patterned hair scarf in my hair, on my purses, wrapped around hats, as a top, and so much more. Amazon has dozens of colors and prints, It was just under $8, and has so many purposes. It wouldn’t be summer without a worn out pair of slide sandals! I love slide sandals in all colors a lot more than thong flip flops. They dress up a casual outfit and adds a feminine flare. I wear these Shein sandals everyday and they are so comfortable! Last, but not least, small purses are the best thing to own this season. LADIES, everyone and their mother are obsessing over the wicker bag trend. I am head over heels for the straw bags, especially this reasonably priced cross body from Amazon Prime! 

I hope you are all having an amazing summer so far- it is going by WAY too fast though!! Look forward to read some of my favorite upcoming posts as we transition into the fall season soon. Thank you SO much for reading, you have no idea how much it means to me!

Star Eyes For This Fit X $20 Or Less!

Hello beautiful people! Wow, I can't believe June is over and July has started. 2019 is already half way over and it is bittersweet. I love new seasons because new styling trends begin and fashion fads end. I am beyond excited to see what fashion trends launch this fall. I only have a little bit left of summer to express my favorite looks and pieces I have found over the past few months but in this blog post, I am sharing one of my all time favorite finds.
Since the celebration of America is coming up so soon, i wanted to share a Fourth of July inspired outfit from one of my favorite affordable websites. I am borderline obsessed with this sparkly star printed matching top and bottom set from Shein. This outfit was such a steal- this top was only $6 and these flare bottoms were just $14. Comfortable is an understatement for these pants!!! This was the comfiest two piece set EVER! Not only were they soft and stretchy, but they were flattering and super high-waisted. I continued the more feminine look by pairing this pale pink set with black ankle strap heels from Nasty Gal (they run slightly big- size down). The positioning of the ankle strap makes the legs appear more elongated, but these shoes only have a 3 inch heel so they are easy to walk in. As you all know, hats are my thing. I wear this black wide brim hat with so much, and it still feels brand new. I snagged this gem from Target a while ago and it is not sold anymore, but I will link a very similar option here. I had to accessorize with silver because of the large silver zipper on the bottoms. I hardly own silver jewelry because i'm a gold loving girl. But, this chain and key lock necklace is a set from Amazon. Originally, I had ordered this necklace in gold but they sent me the wrong one. I was bothered at first but it worked out for the best because it's my new go-to silver accessory. But, if you place an order yourself, be aware it might be messed up like mine. I adore unique jewelry pieces like arm cuffs, so I knew I had to pair one with this outfit. I only have gold arm cuffs, so I took an old silver bracelet and stretched it to fit as an arm cuff (I do not recommend doing this haha!) Last but not least, I threw on these small statement sunnies to complete this look. Sunglasses weren't a necessity because my hat blocked the sun from my eyes squinting... kinda. But, I like to think "the more, the better" when it comes to accessorizing.

I hope you all have a great holiday and thank you for reading!
XO, Sierra
