The Look for Less: Turtleneck and Burgundy Skirt

I had great intentions of having this post be a fabulous look for less post, but then when I went to find all the pieces that I'm wearing from Forever21 the skirt was sold out, and then it wasn't nearly as fun anymore. I bought this skirt last week after I had seen one from J Crew that was a whopping $148 last month. I really wanted it, but would never spend that much on a skirt. A couple weeks after that I found this one for $19 at Forever21 and knew that it was meant to be. I originally got the idea for this look from The Ivory Lane Blog and I'm so glad that I was able to recreate her look for literally thousands less. 






Shirt: Forever 21
Tights: Target
Necklace: Walmart
Shoes: Forever 21

  1. I also wanted that J. Crew skirt but was NOT willing to pay that price tag! Great look-alike post.

  2. I love this! I know MOST (if not all) of the things Emily (and Rachel) wears are donated for the publicity. Where do I sign up!?! To me, it all seems like a colossal waste of money. Who would pay that for ONE OUTFIT?

  6. I love this, and think it's so funny that the difference is by the 1000s ha. Too bad the skirt is sold out :( F21's good stuff sells out so quick, I think there is maybe one time I have snagged something while they still had it in my size.
