[Every week College Candy’s style guru Jill takes a celebrity look and breaks it down for you. What does that mean? It means that while the celebrities are spending $5,000 on an ensemble, you don’t have to. All you have to do is click on the goods and – boom – you can buy the entire ensemble. Yes, we know; there is a spot for her in heaven.]
Everyone tells me on a daily basis that they can’t believe I don’t watch Gossip Girl. I would loooove the drama, I would loooove the cute boys, and, most importantly, I would L-O-V-E the fashion.
I know I would love every minute of this hour long fashion show, but just like I know that sitting in front of Ghiradelli week after week without getting any ice cream would only lead to me to going nuts on their jumbo ice cream sundae one day (and gaining 10 lbs), I know for certain that I would soon give into these adorable and oh-so unaffordable GG styles leaving my college gal budget (which is already lacking any luster) in the negatives. I would literally become the girl who lived in her shoes (Christian Louboutin shoes, but shoes nonetheless).
So while I don’t watch the show, I do know that Taylor Momsen’s look is cute, and easy to achieve without breaking the bank. And – bonus- you can take this look from day to night, and winter to spring!
XOXO, Celebrity Chic on The Cheap.
Black Bomber Jacket
This is a wardrobe essential: it’s cute for class, it’s cute for the bar… it’s just CUTE.
Hot Pink Scarf
If pink isn’t your color, this scarf comes in plenty of other colors to choose from and adds some punch to your ‘fit.
You may have 8 billion college t-shirts and, therefore, think you couldn’t possibly need anymore, but a grey v-neck is a must-have. It allows you to look casual and cute all at the same time, unlike that “Drink Your Face Off” t-shirt you got for free at a pre-party last year.
American Apparel has a plethora of fabulous colors to choose from, including this bright teal. And – score! – headbands are great for those days when your bangs are not cooperating.
Add a little pizazz to your jewelry collection with these simple yet totally marvelous studs. I recommend the white ones, but they wouldn’t show up!
The best thing about this look is that you can totally rock it for a dressier occassion. Throw this gray dress on, top it with the leather bomber, add some tights, booties and a scarf, and you are good to go!
