Designer On A Dime

My closet has never been one that's stocked full of designer pieces...because that simply isn't realistic for my budget. But, I will admittedly jump at the chance to score those high-end styles for less that I normally wouldn't be able to afford.  That's why I love shopping at Saks OFF 5TH, because it's like treasure hunting for deals.  When I participated in the outlet shopping challenge with People StyleWatch earlier this spring (here), it was the first store I went into because I knew I could find something I loved & that would help stretch my money as far as possible.

Today I'm sharing two new looks with you featuring pieces I selected from Saks OFF 5TH.  Even though I have a store within driving distance to my house, sometimes it's nice to shop from the comfort of home & I've noticed that their online shop has a more extensive selection of styles & sizes than what I've found in-store.  You can find name brand designer styles for up to 70% off + they offer free shipping on orders of $99 or more with code SHIP99.

The only thing better than a pleated midi skirt is one in feminine lace and the color & fit of this one is absolute perfection!  To keep the proportions right, I paired it with this cropped linen shell & these nude ankle-strap heels. Other designer tops I'm loving include this silk tank & this fringe peplum.  If you're going to splurge on high quality shoes, I highly recommend Vince Camuto.  Because it's a brand that's more expensive at full price, Saks OFF 5TH is a great place to buy them for less.  I have four pairs (including these suede pumps) and they are unbelievably comfortable and so well made - I'm also eyeing these woven slingbacks & these espadrille flats.

What I'm wearing:
c/o Milly Cutout Crop Top (recommend sizing down), 
c/o Max Studio Lace Skirt (wearing Small), 

I love easy day dresses that I can wear around town with flat sandals or throw on over my swimsuit for the beach. The pretty coral hue & intricate embroidery of this one instantly caught my eye - unfortunately, it sold out just before I was able to share it with you today, but I've found several similar embroidered styles here (this one is my favorite). This saddle bag is the perfect size for every day & it's so buttery soft that I had to double check the tag because I didn't believe it was faux leather.  I also couldn't believe my eyes when I came across this Loeffler Randall bag for under $100 (seriously tempting!).

What I'm wearing:
c/o Max Studio Embroidered Dress, c/o French Connection Saddle Bag
Vince Camuto Sandals (similar), Similar EarringsSimilar Bracelets
