Celebrity Look for Le$$: Shay Mitchell 

Shay Mitchell is a Canadian actress most famous for her role in the hit TV show Pretty Little Liars. She is increasingly becoming more and more famous as the show progresses and her style is constantly changing. She, as well as her character Emily Fields, have gone through some major style changes.

I’ll be the first person to admit that I am literally Pretty Little Liars biggest fan. Yes, it’s embarrassing, but it’s really addictive and they always have cute clothes AND I NEED TO KNOW WHO “A” IS.

Ever since I first started watching the show, I connected most with Shay Mitchells’ character Emily because of her style. I thought it resembled mine the most, and it gave me ideas on clothes I should incorporate more into my everyday life.

Her style has gotten a lot more edgier as the seasons progress. She’s usually in dark colours, combat boots or sneakers, leggings, a graphic t-shirt and a cute light jacket. Below are some of my favourite Shay Mitchell/Emily Fields items that won’t put a dent in your bank account!

Celebrity Look for Le$$: Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian has come a verrrrryyy long way from where she once was.. Did any of you ever believe that she would turn into a world renowned style icon??

Now, I really did love her style before she met Kanye West; but like they say, ‘Yeezy taught her,’ and did he ever.
Every time I see a new picture I die all over again at just how amazing she looks, I think she’s even more amazing post baby!

So in tribute to Kim K for being so fabulously chic, here are some of my favourite looks and how you can get them for less!

Celine Oxfords

When I say this, I know that I’m not the only one who has jumped on the boat of lust, and the Celine gold plated oxfords have made me do it.

I just can’t get enough of how amazing these are.

Rag and Bone ‘Harrow’ Booties

This past fall/winter, leather booties have really come into their own as something unique and cool, which can help add a certain – ‘je ne sais quoi’ to any outfit.

Whether it’s a daytime look, or a night out on the town – you can find just about any bootie appropriate for your look!

A bootie which I really love, and have been seen on just about everyone – are the, Rag and Bone ‘Harrow’ Boots

Such a chic boot and goes with just about everything!

Reece Witherspoon is the perfect example!

Now, these boots retail on average for $450.. Which isn’t typically a frugal choice for a lot of people..
I’ve done some digging, and had a major voila moment when finding, (basically identical), options if you don’t have the means to get your hands on the label brand!

‘Skylar’ bootie via Sole Society – $89

Isabel Marant ‘Scarlett’ Booties

As much as we would all love to get our hands on the real thing, sometimes that just isn’t possible.

My current lust item (at the moment) are the Isabel Marant – Scarlett Booties

Sold out everywhere in my size (continuously crying on the inside), I decided to look around for the next best thing.
That’s when I, yet again, took a look on choies.com to see if there were any cute booties which I could potentially love as much as these ones…… That’s when I came across these (insert heart eye emoji)

In my opinion, these look pretty damn close to the real thing!

With the Isabel Marant’s retailing on average at $1,600, these boots on Choies for $145 don’t seem like that hard of a decision to make!

Grab them while they’re still in stock!

Look for Le$$ – Givenchy Shark Boot

So I know I might be a little late on this, but I still cannot stop lusting over the Givenchy Shark Lock Fold-Over Boots – these things are to die for!! These boots have been seen on the likes of Kim and Khloe Kardashian, Ciara, Rita Ora, etc, etc!

A good leather boot is such a staple in any wardrobe, and well worth the investment. Whether you’re going for a grungy look, or something cute and chic – a well fashioned leather boot is there to help do the trick.

Now I’m assuming that the majority of the population does not having an extra $1895 laying around for a pair of boots; but to those who do, I’d suggest running to Bergdorfs – IMMEDIATELY.

Now for those who don’t, no need to worry. The likes of these boots can be attained from the comfort of your bed, after clicking a of couple buttons.

Courtesy of Choies.com, which also gives you the option of these boots in nude, might I add – are the “Givenchy Shark” fold overs for $174.99, which to me seems like a pretty damn good deal.
