Getting Oscar Style — for LE$$ Courtesy of! #Getthelook #getthelookforless

We all love checking out “red carpet style” (ok maybe you don’t but I do!). I love looking at the fashions and the jewelry because clearly I am not going to be wearing $300K gems anytime soon! However I also like finding ways to get the feel or style of the look that is being shown — and do it for a lot less! That’s where comes in! They have quality jewelry for LE$$… and I mean a lot less!. We all have budgets to deal with, why not find something that is stylistically or related in theme to the pieces you liked and get them at a savings. I love to save money– don’t you? sent me some images of jewelry that seems related in theme to pieces seen on Oscar’s red carpet!

Cate Blanchett

I loved Cate Blanchett’s necklace. I thought it added a serious dose of style, sass and color. While the necklace is from Tiffany’s and features spectacular rough cut turquoise stones, it’s most likely beyond my price range. I won’t even look it up because it will induce serious cringing!

If that doesn’t set your credit card on fire, I don’t know what will. However this is a great way to see how you can approach collecting some statement pieces for le$$. The trick is to approximate the look… then “own it”! (Own it means more than just buy it. Feel comfortable and even more important, feel awesome wearing it! )

Thank you to for this great pieces. Buy one (or more) and as says, “be the star you are!”
