Twofer Tueday-Nanette Lepore

This Twofer Tuesday I was inspired to create an affordable look that resembles this Nanette Lepore ensemble:
The colors are fresh and summery. The skirt is gauzy and flowy, in a color reminiscent of the sea. The sexy crop top shows a flash of skin, but the cut-out details make it look more edgy and fashion-forward than club wear-inspired. The shoes are bright and color-blocked with an ankle strap and a platform. And to finish off the look, the model wears a bright coral lip.

Love this look as much as I do, but can't afford the designer price tag? I've found some cheaper alternatives to each part of the outfit that I'm sure you'll love just as much as the pieces in the outfit that inspired them. Every piece is under $50! :

A Sea foam-Green Flowing Maxi Skirt:
American Apparel- Chiffon Full-length Skirt in "Sprout"

An orange crop-top with cutouts:

Another sexy option for the Top:
Lulus.com- Sexy Coral "Speed of Light" Crop Top

A Candy-Colored Belt:

Some Color-Blocked Heels:

And a Coral Lip to Finish off The Look:

$9.00 (at drugstores)

I've found that building outfits inspired by designers looks is fun and leaves me with a look that doesn't cost much, but looks very chic and expensive. And we always want to look like our outfits are chic and expensive, don't you think?
