There was this show that I used to love on the Style Channel called, “The Look For Less.” The show was hosted by style maven Elisabeth Filarski –now The View’s Elisabeth Hasselbeck. And, yes, I’m oozing with sarcasm.
Well, Elisabeth would present fashion victim guests an off-the-runway picture and her team of star stylists would have to reproduce the “look” by running around a local mall within a set time frame and the whole outfit had to be under $100.
Lets put aside our opinions about Filarski/Hasselback and talk about the fashion. The stylists were brilliant. There was Lloyd Boston and James Aguiar, just to name a couple. Somehow these guys would pull off the most amazing reproductions by running to Forever 21 and Macys.
The show is now canceled. We’re still waiting for The View to share the same fate. However, I have come across my own inspired Look For Less. Here we have two pair of crystal studded ballet flats. One is $650 by Giuseppe Zanotti and the other is $29.99 by Sigerson Morrison for Target. Can you guess which is which?
Answer: The top image is from Target. I bet you can guess where I’m going today.
