Style Inspiration



I really miss the days when Lindsay Lohan didn't look as if she hadn't slept in weeks due to binge drinking and snorting coke off toilet seats in bathroom stalls. I can't even remember how long ago that was so for a friendly little reminder I sometimes flip through my December 2008 issue of Harper's Bazaar to take me back to the good old days. I'm kidding of course. Lindsay was hardly practicing good-girl habits less than four months ago but it certainly looks as if she cleaned up her act for a hot minute thanks to this shoot by Terry Richardson. So clean, in fact that her outfits inspired me to start web hunting for similar pieces that I can incorporate into my own wardrobe. Not exactly what I would call perfect but close enough to pull off the same look and cheap enough to not burn a gargantuan hole in my pocket. There's already a decent sized one shredding at the very bottom of my rock and republic's as we speak and now is definitely not the right time in my life to increase it's volume.  Before I bid you adieu here is the pricing and places you could pick up your lilo duds and a comparison between the real deal & the steal deal...

REAL;
jacket  | diane von furstenberg $645
top | daniel swaroski $special order <-- yikes
jeans  | dkny $89
shoes | courtney crawford $565
gloves | louis vuitton $845
shades | grey ant $253

STEAL;
jacket | larok $150
top | bottega voneta $580
jeans | buckle $50
shoes | aldo $80
gloves | asos.com $14
shades | ksubi $210
TOTAL SAVINGS $1,313
