Selena Gomez Inspired Look

Style ThiefIf you’ve been following LoveNiki for awhile, you know how much I love Selena Gomez. And after her attending her concert last week (thanks to the best bf ever!), I realized that we believe in and stand for a lot of the same things. I can only imagine the pressure she is under to be skinnier, sexier, and  cooler but she doesn’t seem to care. She embraces who she is and  encourages others to do the same.

I spotted her geek crop top on her instagram and thought she looked effortlessly cool in it. So I looked around for one but I also realized that it’s actually getting a little chilly around here so maybe a warmer option would be a good idea. Lol.

Geek Sweater

Book OOTD

Geek GirlNot only was I able to find a cute geek sweater from Kiki La’Rue (find it here) I also learned what Kiki La’Rue stands for. They are a company who believe in embracing who you are. If you check out their instagram @ShopKikiLaRue you’ll see how they offer pieces for many different shapes & sizes and that their models are real women who are both diverse and beautiful.

Let me know what you think of this geek chic sweater! And I’m always looking for looks to recreate so feel free to leave links to images in the comment section!

Get Rachel Bilson’s Casual Look!

Rachel Bilson styleIf I had a giant bank account, recreating looks would be a cake walk. But this is real life and you’ve got to work with what you’ve got!

To create this look on yourself focus more on the outfit as a whole rather than the details. You’ll need: a striped shirt, a (fedora) hat, coat/jacket/blazer, and jeans. The items don’t have to be identical just similar. And you can switch up the footwear to whatever you like. Add a heel, cute flats, or even your fav pair of boots.

Steal Jessica Alba’s Look!

Jessica Alba Dress

For the record, I wore it first. Lol. Normally I recreate looks but this time I happened to stumble across a dress that looked just like the one I bought last year. My dress is knitted/crocheted and Jessica’s is shiny and metallic but the look is pretty close.

I searched everywhere to find links and options for you guys but there’s not a lot out there. I think this style and color combo is barely headed back out for the new season but I was able to find one dress that’s….semi-similar Lol Check it out: Nasty Gal Zig Zag Dress

Steal Lea Michele’s Marie Claire Look!

LeaMicheleToday I’m sharing a very daring look!  In the August Issue of Mexico’s Marie Claire, Lea Michele looked amazing in nothing but a tuxedo and black briefs. This look seems to be making the rounds right now, you’ll see a very similar outfit worn by Selena Gomez herself in her new music video Slow Down.

But is this really a look you can rock to a party? Yes! Just grab a blazer, throw on your fav pair of shorts and…. make sure it’s the right kind of event! Don’t go trying to wear this to Grandma’s 80th birthday bash.

I’ve been eating a lot cleaner and trying to workout more often so my blazer is not as form fitting as it use to be but I sort of like it a little bigger. It has the whole “boyfriend jeans” vibe going on.

Hope you guys like it! Let me know what you think!

Yay! I finally got a few snapshots of my Katniss look! BUT…I didn’t have the good camera :( Lol…life huh? I thought it’d still be fun to share this look and than maybe reshoot it with an outfit inspired by the movie! That would be pretty cool. I’ll see what I can do ;)

I’d really love to hear from you pretty ladies out there! Send in photos or links of looks you’d like to see recreated! Email me at Niki@LoveNiki.com or post the look on my Facebook Page :)

Hope to hear from you girls!

Get Alexandra Daddario’s Cosmopolitan Look for Less!

Cosmopolitan June 2013

Charlotte russe

Recognize this lovely young actress? You most likely remember Alexandra Daddario from Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief. She’ll also be starring in the soon to be released sequel, Sea of Monsters.
The outfit she wore in her June Cosmo shoot was cute but pricey. I think a casual look like this should be way more affordable.
Ready to see the total cost for her look? Top: $ 375 10 Crosby Derek Lam Shorts: $141 James Jeans Bra: $98 Fortnight Grand Total: $614!!
And what’s it going to cost you to recreate it….$50! Or you could use a pair of jean shorts you already own and just find your self a striped top :)
Love,

Steal Kelly Osbourne’s Cosmopolitan Cover Look!

Kelly Osbourne is gorgeous! I love her hair, her new style, everything. She’s also on the cover of this month’s Cosmopolitan and after reading her interview it’s easy to see why people adore her.

Kelly has definitely grown on me and become a bit of an inspiration. I like that she stays true to herself, speaks honestly, and isn’t easily intimidated. Also, I’ve been working to get back in shape so she is a big fitness inspiration! Check out that bod….that girl worked hard for it and she completely deserves it.

And now, we must steal her style! I raided my wardrobe for pieces to create a similar look but it wasn’t easy. The skirts and bustiers Kelly wears are bright, bold, and …designer. But I was able to create a similar vibe with a few pieces I already own. Hope you like it  **fingers crossed**

Are you loving Taylor Swift’s new song? I’ll admit it, I’m a sucker for pop music….sometimes it’s just nice to listen to fun & catchy tunes! Her video is also really cute.
I’d love to steal a lot of her clothes & accessories. Lol. I found out that her T-shirt (white one below) sells for $800+. That’s when I decided that an affordable style thief was needed! I was able to find some really awesome and affordable options for you guys :)
Let me know what you think!

The Crop Top Trend

Crop tops and bustiers are everywhere! I love the look. It’s the right amount of sexy. Plus, I feel way less out of shape when I show just a little bit of my stomach. Lol. I put together a polyvore set with affordable piece to help you recreate the look :) And….I added a few extra links at the bottom if you want to browse some of the other options I found.
Let me know what you think of this trend!

Atlantic Pacific Inspired Outfit

AtlanticPacificNordstrom Dress: Here| Forever 21 Sweater: Similar| Pointy Kitten Heel: Similar 

Happy Monday! Today’s look is inspired by a very popular fashion blogger, Blair Eadie of Atlantic Pacific. I love her style and her signature dark shades. I think my personal style has a different vibe but I definitely lust over a lot of her pieces.

My goal was to recreate an outfit similar to the one Blair had on HERE while still keeping it affordable. My skirt is actually a dress so that’s automatically 2 pieces for the price of one. My shades are a $5 swapmeet find! I love them. I’ve always wanted some cool Ray-Bans but they cost way more than five dollars. My sweater was $25 from Forever 21, but everything in the photo was already in my closet so I spent $0 on this look :)

Is there another blogger’s look you’d like to see recreated? Or maybe you’d like to see a celebrity’s outfit recreated in an affordable way? Let me know!
