Couture Look For Less

Hi everyone,

Today I’d like to share with you how to create a couture look for less budget. To me, a couture look doesn’t have to be expensive. The key is to find a top that’s dramatic yet chic. Like this Tiered Ruffles Pleated Top. I found it for $7.00 when it was on sale. I LOVE the exaggerating affect of the ruffles sleeves. I simply paired it with a high waist pencil skirt. I got this pencil skirt from H&M for only $10 when it was on sale.

I’m a petite girl. My legs aren’t bad, it’s just that I have a short torso. So I made sure the length of the skirt would be above my knees just a little bit, maybe around half inch. This is a good tip for all the short girls like me out there when choosing a pencil skirt.

Then I finish the look with a pair of open toes platform high heels.

I hope you like this look and feel free to leave your comments.

I met my husband in Beijing 2004 and was convinced move to Fargo, ND in late 2009. Since then, I have been living here with my family here in Fargo. I love fashion, music, food, travel and fitness. Stay in a healthy lifestyle is very important to me. I teach cycling classes at our local gyms weekly. I LOVE a sweaty workout which can hold me accountable for my own fitness. I'm very petite. They said "wonderful things always come in small packages." What a true statement! ;) I'm 4ft11. I wear size 4.5 for shoes. I buy size 5 for the majority of time since I can't find any size 4.5 shoes here in the states.

I hope my posts can give you tips about a healthy life style that we are all looking for. Thank you for stopping by and feel free to share your opinions with me anytime. XOXO, Vivian
