06/19/2019 Darling of the Day: Victoria Beckham’s Modern Neon Inspiration!


Victoria Beckham is always flawless. This isn’t news, but I just had to start there. The Spice Girl-turned-designer recently stepped out in what starts to look like a minimalist summer look with a white tee & black cuffed jeans, accessorized with classic pieces like a sleek black envelope clutch, pendant necklace, a chain link gold watch, & Celine sunglasses (shop here)… until you see the heels! They’re Balenciaga Square Knife neon pumps (shop here) that make a wild style statement, but it all works seamlessly, especially on Victoria!

Of course, this look would’ve worked with pink, orange, red, or really, any color heel. She could’ve surprised us all with neon ballet flats, which would have been equally successful & exciting to post about. I’m always finding new ways to mix up my favorite wardrobe items in my collection, playing with different colors & patterns to pop, which is why I love Victoria’s inspiration so much.

However, we all don’t have the kind of budget needed to recreate this high-end, luxury look… but have no fear! Because so many of the pieces are staples, they’re not hard to find without breaking the bank! Even imitation-inspired heels are available to peruse (in several other colors too) to bring Victoria’s posh style back to life!

SHOP: Prologue short sleeve crew neck tee @Target (available in XS-XXL), black straight jeans @Old Navy (available in 0-20), neon green high heels @Stylentol, ASOS DESIGN clutch @ASOS, tinted sunglasses @Forever 21, hammered pendant necklace @Forever 21, & gold pave square link watch @New York & Company.

Luxury Look-Alikes for Less: Butterfly Rings!


Instead of posting a Darling of the Day, I’m going to take a break from celebrity styling (especially after the fashionably insane SAG coverage I just posted).  I’m so happy to present to you a little shopping fun with a luxury item & its much more affordable look-alike.  And yes, I’ve been groaning about the weather, now that I’m iced-in due to freezing temps, I have the whole internet to myself & a world of style to blog about.  Today’s items came to mind when I learned of Hailee Steinfeld‘s adorable hot pink lips ring by Solange Azagury-Partridge at the recent ceremony.  The actress is nominated for her supporting role in True Grit & critics in the fashion world are even pegging her as the next it-girl as the face of style, picking up where Emma Watson left off since shedding her Harry Potter image. Pack some punch with a bejeweled butterfly ring.  While one is a Couture Candy items for $225, another is $68.00 @Nordstrom, GUESS created one for $28.00 @Macy’s, & the least expensive is just as stylish for $6.80 @Forever21.  Click around to see which is which.  All are definitely fun cocktail rings, but sometimes a Style Darling on a budget can’t always splurge on the big item.  Any of these are perfect for a lunch out with the girls with a crochet cardigan & cuffed jeans, or can be worn with an LBD & hoop earrings for a special occasion!  Happy Styling!
