From High End to Affordable: Fashion Dupes

Every time I see a designer or higher-end piece, I immediately run to my computer and search for style dupes for it. While I would love to dish out hundreds of dollars for one piece of clothing, my wallet doesn't necessarily agree; especially if the piece of clothing is so simple that it could easily be recreated. I know I'm not alone in the constant bargain hunts, I put together some of my favorite dupes of trending items that have been well duplicated for much less money. Stay tuned for future style and beauty dupes!

DIY: Cookie in a Mug

Inspiration can come from anywhere, whether it be in the form of art or music, however this inspiration came from sheer cravings. While indulging in a Keeping Up With The Kardashians marathon, my stomach was pushing me into indulging in something else: chocolate chip cookies. Unfortunately, seeing that I was home alone and that it was roughly 11pm, making an entire batch of cookies seemed unnecessary. Alas, I googled away and stumbled upon the exact thing I needed: a warm, fresh baked cookie in a mug. One thing led to another, and roughly 6 minutes later I was enjoying my newest creation (with the help of a recipe, of course). I was so astounded by the product of my creation that I wanted to share it! Whether you're home alone or with friends, this is a fool proof way to satisfy your cravings without being left with two-weeks-worth of leftovers to corrupt your "diet".

What's Trending: Daisy Crazy

This summer is all about blossoming; it's about starting fresh and reconnecting with what was lost during the tough year. And what better to symbolize the new season than with daisies, innocent and carefree. This season can continue to be all about stopping and picking flowers, but in addition, we can wear these daisies as a reminder to enjoy every single moment of this beautiful summer.

Top 5 Bathing SuitTrends for 2013 Feat. Wildfox Swimwear

While it's already well into swim suit season, it's never too late to venture out into the realm of new trends considering I, for one, am still rocking last years bathing suits. Swimwear trends are often trickier to tackle because the number one goal is always to pick a suit that flatters your body. However, once that is figured out, it becomes easier to pick and choose the latest trends that shows off your body while simultaneously showing off your style. From Wildfox Couture's swim line, I have selected their top 5 trends that they have favored this season. Enjoy and let the swimming begin! 

Cropped Tankini Top

This top is perfect for girls who are looking for a more conservative alternative to a bikini top, which can become decently revealing. I also find that this is a great piece for smaller chested women because the shape adds more volume to your chest, and the conservative manner allows for the attention to be draw to other parts of your body. 

Cheeky Brazilian Bottoms 

Time to do some squats, ladies! This summer, more than in the past, is all about showing the booty. This piece would work nicely with the previous top, balancing the conservative top with these cheeky bottoms. In addition, the thick band on the top of the bottoms balances out the larger amount of skin shown on the lower portion. 

American Pride 

Even with the 4th of July gone, the American spirit continues! This piece is simple enough to show off some red, white, and blue without overwhelmingly shoving your countries flag in everyones face. In addition, the heart shape creates a cute and original twist from the original rectangular shape.

 High Waisted Bottoms 

 As tiny as bathing suits seem to be getting these days, these high-waisted retro bottoms will always be a great alternative to smaller pieces while still looking good. These bottoms highlight your waist and give your bottom a rounder shape. The ruffles on the side add a unique flair and also add more volume for those who want to enhance their hips.

Printed One-Piece 

This floral and geometric one piece takes this classic shape to a whole new level, combining the sexier bustier top with the feminine pattern and shape. The one piece also is a sneaky way to hide any imperfections while still giving you the classic hourglass shape.

Outfits: Circle Skirt

Tight mini skirts have been booted off center stage now that circle skirts have made a comeback. These breezy skirts will be a staple for this years spring and summer and thankfully can be found in almost every store now, with a wide variety of colors and lengths. I've been absolutely lusting over these skirts until finally getting my hands on this black one from H&M that honestly goes with just about everything.
