VANESSA HUDGENS | LOOK FOR LESS

VANESSA HUDGENS | LOOK FOR LESS

I feel like I'm a bit behind on the Vanessa Hudgens hype.  Don't get me wrong, I've always loved her bohemian style, but I haven't been following her looks as much as I have been recently.  And as much as I gush over her ensembles, I know that there is no way I can afford spending over $1,000 on an outfit.  

So for my own sanity -- as well as other readers who are equally as obsessed with Vanessa's style -- I have decided to recreate two of her most popular looks (based on popularity on Pinterest).  I hope with these Looks for Less, you all will be able to rock her boho-chic looks without letting your wallet be the ones who suffer for it.

XOXO.

LOOK NO. 1

VANESSA'S OUTFIT

Dress | Ecote: $98

Purse | Kenneth Cole: $298

Sunglasses | The Row: $450

Bracelets | Henri Bendel: $294

TOTAL COST | $1,140

MY RECREATION

Dress | F21: $28

Purse | F21: $15

Sunglasses | F21: $6

Bracelets | F21: $11

TOTAL COST | $60

Amount Saved: $1,080

The dress I picked out is almost identical to Vanessa's.  With the side cutouts and boho print, you can't go wrong with this alternative.  As for the accessories, each of the one's I picked out are so closely similar that you wouldn't even notice a difference besides the fact that the look itself is $1,000 cheaper.

LOOK NO.2

VANESSA'S OUTFIT

Romper | Spell & The Gypsy: $190

Booties | Sam Edelman: $120

Hat | Goorin Audrey: $66

Sunglasses | Wildfox Couture: $179

TOTAL COST | $555

MY RECREATION

Romper | Choies: $14

Booties | Tilly's: $35

Hat | F21: $25

Sunglasses | Romwe: $10

TOTAL COST | $84

Amount Saved: $471

The romper -- though the pattern is slightly different -- is almost identical in style and color to the one that Vanessa is wearing.  For the accessories, I picked out practically the exact same one's as she had, but SIGNIFICANTLY more reasonable in price. You can achieve this look, and save almost $500 with my recreation.
