5 Incredibly Cheap Office Friendly Tops that Look Expensive

I found these beautiful office friendly tops for under $15 they look shockingly identical to blouses that cost more than $150.  Take a look and let me know what you think:

1.  Emerald-green Ruffle Silk/Chiffon Top 

SheIn Vs Ninna Ricci

Left: SheIn Green Puff Sleeve Split Chiffon Blouse   Right: NINA RICCI Vertical ruffle silk blouse

2.  Brushstroke Short Sleeve Boxy Blouse

Shein vs Lafayette 148 New York

Left: SheIn Black Short Sleeve Dip Hem Loose Blouse Right: Lafayette 148 New York ‘Lula’ Brushstroke Split Neck Blouse

3. Embellished Chiffon/ Silk Blouse with beading around the neck shein vs Haute Hippie

Left: White Round Neck Branch Print Blouse Right: Haute Hippie Embellished Silk Blouse

4.  White Blouse with Floral Branch Print 

Floral Print  - Branch Print blouse

Left: SheIN White Round Neck Branch Print Blouse Right: Essentiel Top – Hurry Up Print
Cutout sholder top

Left: SheIn White Short Sleeve Cut Out Chiffon Blouse Right: Cooper & Ella Lily Cutout-Shoulder Sheer-Yoke Top

Keep in mind the fabric nor the quality will be the same of course.  The designer tops are made with real silk (not chiffon) and with a level of perfection that  you will logically never get from the cheaper version. But for those of us who want style on a I’m-paying-off-student-loans-budget the cheaper version will get us through just fine.

A couple of weeks ago a beautiful dress popped up on the side of my Facebook feed, I never click on those ads but it was so pretty I went to take a look.  The dress was from SheIn,a really inexpensive (wholesale prices)clothing store with up-to-date styles.  The same dress would cost me double the price at any other store. I am now an affiliate and all my shein posts including this one will have affiliate links.  I will continue to find chic and cheap styles for you like the ones above and post them on the blog, Twitter or Facebook.   Thanks for reading!

From Casual to Dressy – I Found the Perfect Little White Dress!

I found a really cute and affordable little white dress to  participate in the Long Live The Little White Dress campaign and (fingers crossed) hopefully be featured on luckyshops.com.

Here’s my post (originally posted here):

I found the perfect Little White Dress that can be worn at night or during the day. It’s comfortable, breezy, effortless and easy to wear. It’s flattering to every body type and it will make you feel so feminine when it’s flowing with the wind.

I chose a casual look for my LWD by pairing it with a floppy hat and chunky heels. I would wear this look to a BBQ, brunch or pretty much any daytime outing.

If you are looking for a night look, you can easily shift this dress by pairing it with high heel nude sandals like these and bolder jewelry like this one.

love these tan chunky heels!

***some links above are from affiliates***

When I started blogging, I never thought I would be writing about fashion.  I joined a couple of affiliate programs from my favorite stores for my own shopping and found myself wanting to share the promotions with you.  Then I found that there were not many bloggers sharing work outfits, so I started the Office Style section to share what I find.  And now my fiance has a really nice camera and I love his photos so why not have fun with it!  This my first style post featuring myself, how did I do?

Target Lovers, Don’t Miss This Amazing Offer!

If you love shopping at Target.com and love to save a pretty penny you definitely want to keep reading…

I just became a Target.com affiliate and a couple of days ago and I received an exciting email from Target letting me know about their REDcards  benefits and I think you’ll love the savings as much as me.

Before we get to the benefits and details of the REDcards, I want to mention that I absolutely love that we have the option to choose between a debit and  credit REDcards and still get the same benefits. That means that customers that prefer to pay cash or those who cannot get a credit line  are not left out of the amazing savings.

I personally like to keep as few credit cards open as possible, so the debit card is perfect for me. But if you prefer to pay your balance slowly or make larger purchases then the credit line might be a better fit for you.  There is no annual fee for either card but be sure to review the REDcard Credit for APR and late fees.  The REDcard debit is straight forward and works like a check like a check by drawing from your existing checking account.

Now the fun part —>The Benefits of  the REDcard debit/credit
three-offers
REDcards Benefit 1:  5% discount on ALL purchases

This may not sound like a lot but this is actually a pretty good deal.  It is specially in a store as irresistible as target, where you can get pretty much everything you need backed by a price match guarantee.  My credit card only offers 1% cash back on all purchases and in less than a year I’ve accumulated $225 in free cash.  Of course I don’t carry a balance so it’s not like I’m giving that money back to them in interest.  If you think of the 5% discount as cash back and throw the savings into your piggy bank and you’ll watch it add up.

REDcards Benefit 2: Free Shipping

We also get free shipping at Target.com with no minimum purchase, whaaaa???  Now they are speaking my language.  If I had any objections about how much sense it makes get the card, this eliminates all doubts. Say no more, I am sold!  That means that I can rack up savings by purchasing groceries and home stuff without worrying about shipping costs or minimums.

REDcards Benefit 3: Extended Returns

An extra 30 days to be exact. Perfect for the busy person or procrastinator.  I consider this a savings of it own because how often do we go past that return deadline and end up keeping things we don’t need.

REDcards Benefit 4: Give back

Target is highly committed education and will donate  up to 1% of purchases go to school of your choice.

The online application process for debit and credit has immediate approval (except for some debit applications that require a few days to confirm a bank account).  As a REDcard holder you can easily check your credit card account balance, make a payment, review past statements, check their debit card transaction history and manage their PIN. They also get to enjoy exclusive offers available only to REDcard holders.

Don’t miss out on this awesome deal- apply here!

Xoxo,

Leslie

New Years’s Eve is quickly approaching and as I prepare for the festivities the first thing on my mind is what will I wear?

I tend to  buy outfits for NYE and other events that end up sitting in my closet and I never ever wear them again.  This year I will be taking a different approach and go for a dress I normally wouldn’t allow myself to splurge on.  I will be renting a stunning designer dress from Rent The Runway for a fraction of its cost.

As I browsed through the Rent The Runway dress selection, I thought to share with you some of the gorgeous dresses I found along with 20% off on your order of $50 with promo code: HAPPY2015.  The code can be used when you shop between 12/10-12/21, choose a rental start date between 12/26-12/31.

And here are my dress/outfit picks for New Year’s Eve Celebration:

1

Be the Belle of the Ball:  Badgley Mischka Windswept Skirt – $75.00
Gold Dust Top – $65.00

3 Super Stylish Fall Outfits You Will Love!

I absolutely love my friend Arlenis’ impeccable style, so after months of admiring her instagram photos I finally asked her to curate 3 Fall looks for LuckySevenTen and she agreed!

She came up with a Fall look for every occasion + some insights for pulling them off (I knew I wouldn’t let me down!).

From Arlenis:

Fall Look 1: A Date Night/Night Out on The Town Look
I love Fall and rockin’ a great leather jacket, and I love black. Sometimes both of those together feels very heavy and Goth-like (not that there’s anything wrong with Goth). The trick to pulling an all black ensemble is to mix textures and sometimes shades of black, and add on some delicate pieces if you don’t want to look too “heavy”. Here’s a good edgy date night/night out on the town outfit that does just that. Best part, every piece can stand alone with a different outfit later :)Fall Looks 2014 - Date night - Night out in the town - nyc

  1. Vince V-Neck Blouse  2.  Citizens of Humanity Skinny Jeans Porter 3.  Halogen Leather Moto Jacket 4. Nadri Pendant Necklace   5. Phase 3 Clutch   6. Vince Camuto Zip Bootie   7. Dolce Vita Hexx Cage Bootie
Fall Look 2: Brunch with the Girls
Brunch with the girls is an opportunity to play dress up and have fun. Mimosas never tasted so good.

Brunch with the girls - fall outfits - nyc

  1.  Vince Silk Blouse 2. DKNY Saffiano Leather Round Satchel 3. Zara Leopard Print Trousers 4. Ivanka Trump Carra Pump  5. Zara Wool Coat with Belt
Fall Look 3: Day to Explore
Being comfy is the key for a day of exploration, or shopping :)

1.Sundry ‘Le Tee Blan’ tee 2. Paper Denim & Cloth Eze Skinny Jeans, Ripper 3. Vince Honeycomb Crochet Cardigan  4.  Derek Lam Chelsea Tortoise Sunglasses 5.   Madewell the Transport Tote 6. Splendid Roland Suede Ankle Bootie.

About the contributor:

Hi I’m Arlenis, and my personal style falls in between classicly modern with a touch of edgy. I don’t necessarily follow trends unless they work exceptionally well in a timeless fashion. My closet is FULL of black and white and the occasional blush/nude, navy and gray. I add in color (in the rare occasions that I want to) with accessories, bags, shoes or lipstick.
