cheap(er) chic: cobalt blue

To show that one can be chic on the cheap and in response to my brothers outrage that I post so many expensive things (his girlfriend reads my blog) I am going to start a weekly post on cheap(er) chic. All the items will either be on sale or under $200. Each week will have a new theme and this week it is the beautiful cobalt blue!

Embellished dress from Alice+Olivia (25% off), patent ballet flats from Old Navy ($17.5o), sleeveless shirt from J.Crew ($59.99), silk scarf from Burberry (40% off), leather key pouch from Marc Jacobs ($87.50).

Also, I would love your suggestions for upcoming cheap(er) chic posts - whether a style, a color, a type of clothing ect...

SUPER cute finds! I'm loving that little coin purse with it's oversized gold clasp. Marc Jacobs is my god...

I went into Burberry last week and couldn't BELIEVE the sale they're having. Trenches for half price, shoes for even less...it killed me to walk out having bought nothing. But we're on a budget, sigh...so I'll just have to shop vicariously through you!

Cheap and chic - that's what I NEED!!

I know I am in shock by all the sales-even on the luxury brands. It is crazy!

I so am excited for this feature because based on your first one, it is going to be great!

The cobalt blue is a wonderful way to start too. I love the dress, the J.Crew blouse, and the Marc Jacobs leather pouch. The ballet flats are cute too. Ok, and I certainly wouldn't turn down the Burberry scarf. Now if only we weren't budgeting quite so much. -sigh-

And it cracks me up about your brother's outrage! Too funny!

Oh. good I am glad you are excited. I think it will be a little bit of a challenge for me but quite fun!:)

Sorry about the budgeting-I only allow myself 1-2 non necessary purchases a month and it usually ends up being Kiehls products! Not fun at all!

Great items! I love the key pouch and that sleeveless shirt most especially. I may need to head over to J.Crew and get that right now.

Looking forward to future budget friendly posts.

Thank you! I think a visit to j.crew is definitely in order. They have a ton of very pretty items on sale!
