I came across this photo of Jenna Lyons (the force behind J. Crew) and I literally died.This, to me, is the ultimate picture of style and class. I love the idea of putting something so casual with something so glamorous. Lyons is absolutely the master of this look. I so needed to find a more affordable option. Glamour Magazine suggested Lulu’s, so I started there.
Pretty Plies Ivory Tulle Skirt $43
While it’s not floor length, it is more suitable for the average girl’s lifestyle (how many of us ever really go to galas?). I love tulle and it has almost the same effect.
Cashmere Blend Double V-neck Sweater $59.95
There are so many affordable v-neck sweaters out there. This is just one (of many) examples.
Poppy King For J. Crew Lipstick $18
And of course, you have to have the perfect shade of red lipstick!
In total, this look would cost $121. If she is wearing the Cashmere V-neck sweater from J. Crew, that alone is over $200. And I can only imagine how much the skirt is!
As long as I was on the Lulu’s website, I decided to see what else they had to offer. These are my favorites.
Lulu’s does seem geared more toward the “juniors” crowd, but there are definitely some great pieces for everyone. Happy shopping!
