..Cheap-chic

 The deets: Wet Seal lace top; J.Crew skirt; Payless shoes; Michael Kors watch; Essie "Blushing Bride" nails.

I have no idea what made me put this crazy outfit together last night.  I had a friend's birthday dinner right after work and obviously got ready in a hurry...anyway, the shoes and top are both from places I'm rather embarrassed to go in (but I did anyway since I'm addicted to shopping and it's all I've got in walking distance) but in my opinion, were such great finds!  I love the color and texture of the top and the shoes look identical to the much pricier Steve Madden version.  Lucky for me I live next to all these cheapy places and not the good stuff or I'd be broke.  Happy weekend.

  1. I know exactly what you been by being a little embarassed but the more and more I read people's blogs, the more I've found that you should look EVERYWHERE. There are hidden gems at the most unpredictable of places. By the way, I lovethat top - I just bought a similar one from zara in coral.

  3. Great finds , I must say!! Love the lace top and those heels sure look fabulous! If you get good stuff for less, why not?

  4. You look so cute! Wet Seal isn't exactly my style, but if it's inexpensive, and I see a top I like that fits, you better believe I'm buying it. I'm all about Walmart jeans--they're cheap and they fit really well! And I have a soft spot for Payless...their shoes are just so comfy. I can't say no.

  7. haha I know what you mean, I sort of feel the same way about Wet Seal. But that top is really cute and I like how you styled it! Payless on the other hand, has been my go to spot when I need a pair of shoes or flats lately! I have been finding lots of cute stuff in there & for super cheap!

  15. Those shoes are SO cute, and I love that they are from Payless! I used to shop at Wet Seal ALL the time back in the day, and probably still would if I had one in walking distance :) Love the leopard skirt Erin!

  19. I love the mint paired with leopard! And Wet Seal - I didn't even know they still exist! Takes me back to my junior high days!

  20. What!? Wet Seal... I haven't shopped in there in ages, and obviously I am missing out big time! You look so put together and adorable! Payless is my secret shopping spot for shoes - mostly ones that I am going to wear out to the bars and trash anyways, but I always get complements on my $20 steals!

  29. Gosh, You are seriously gorgeous. Super jealous.

    That color blue looks fantastic on you, so who cares where it's from!?

    I would NEVER think to mix leopard w/ that shirt, but I can' believe how well it works. Your hair , brunette and flowing, and the black shoes really ensure that the outfit isn't over the top. It's perfect. Can't believe you got those babies at Payless!

    Love the watch, too :)
