I am really pleased to be guest spotting for the lovely Everything5Pounds blog! Let me introduce myself, I’m Vicki, I am 24, a stay at home Mum, wifey and blogger at Elliebearbabi.co.uk. I blog about lots of little things from baby to beauty so pop over have a peek and say hi!
As a SAHM my fashion and beauty budget of years gone by has dwindled, the money I would have spent on new shoes, bags and dresses now goes on nappies, wipes and baby clothes. That said, just because the purse strings have been tightened doesn’t mean I cannot keep up with the latest trends or emulate my fave celebrities look. Thanks to Everything5Pounds I can get the look I want for less… £5 to be exact! I thought I’d show you just how easy it is to replicate both a day time and night time celebrity look by purchasing a few items from Everything5Pounds.
Khloe Kardashian is one of my current style icons, she always knows just how to dress her curves, be it for a days shopping, hitting the town for nights out or fashion shoots and events. She always looks gorgeous but effortless. I want to show you just how easy it is to get her look for less!
Khloe rocks a chic day time shopping look by pairing a basic striped top under an army green short jacket. Light denim wash jeans, ever so slightly turned up at the bottom, really show off her long legs which are made seem even longer by the platform open toe heels. She tops off this look with a statement coloured tote bag. This outfit is perfect for shopping, although I am sure at the end of the evening she was glad to take her heels off and pop something more comfy on. The outfit is casual yet dressy enough to go from day time shopping to dinner or drinks with friends. The larger tote bag is the perfect size for keeping all your essentials in plus room for your purchases (now that we have the pesky bag charges!) So how can you recreate Khloe’s look for less? Everything5Pounds has got it covered!
Replicate Khloes look with these gorgeous light wash-blue denim jeans, team them with an on trend faux leather trim zip front jacket and wear it open to get Khloe’s casual look.
There are lots of gorgeous statement totes to choose from on Everything5Pounds. I love the textured flap design handbag, it will add a pop of colour to the outfit similar to Khloe’s statement tote. It has two handle options, grab handle and shoulder strap, as well as zip pockets perfect for storing all your daily on the go essentials.
Khloe teamed her jeans with open toe peeptoe platform heels, as we don’t have the luxury of the LA weather here in the UK at the moment closed toe heels are the way to go. Everything5Pounds stock gorgeous cut out lace suedette heel shoes with gorgeous Louboutin style red sole. Again as we are in the midst of wintry weather instead of wearing a striped t-shirt like Khloe I would choose a light knit top like the striped open pocket knitted top , still staying with the look but also staying warm! Total cost of look £25!
The look above is perfect for daytime shopping, meals out and even drinks with friends but when heading out for a night out on the town I know I like to go a little more glam. Ditch the jeans and opt for something more party ready like a dress or a skirt and top. Khloe loves a statement dress, she often can be seen in “midi” length long sleeve fitted dresses at events and in magazine shoot pictures. The “midi” style of dress really suits her figure showing of her curves, the longer sleeves are flattering as is the longer length.
Everything5Pounds have lots of gorgeous statement midi dresses to choose from. I couldn’t pick just one as they are simply too nice and for £5 each who says you can only have one! I went with two dresses with prints that I think are most “Khloe-ish”.
Firstly the Bright feather print bodycon silky dress. This is a dramatic eye catching print, with striking blue and orange detail. Second I choose this colourful feathers print woolen dress, I love this print and with the number of different colours featured in the feathers you can team any different coloured bag or accessories you like to match.
Both could be worn with the gorgeous cut out lace suedette heel shoes with gorgeous Louboutin style red soles to finish off the look. Total cost of outfit £10.
So next time your flipping through the pages of a magazine and look at a celebrity and wish you could get their look but think you can’t afford it, think again, Everything5Pounds has it covered!
