Luxury Look-Alikes For Less: Katy Perry’s Silver & White Sandals From ALDO!


Katy Perry has been everywhere these days, promoting her upcoming film, The Smurfs 2. Along with hitting Europe & Mexico, Katy turned up in Los Angeles to the I Create Music Expo. The “Teenaged Dream” singer wore a cell phone-designed graphic print collared tank dress ($650.00) by Suno, as well as Kasota sandals ($80.00) from Aldo. While I think it’s a great idea for the pop star to don accessories from retailers that can be found in the local mall, $80 is still a pretty penny to spend on sandals. Surely this style can be worn with plenty of looks throughout the spring & summer, but I was really inspired to search for silver & white look-alikes to recreate Katy’s footwear choice, without breaking the bank.

I’ve come up with the following shoes: Forever 21‘s studded strappy sandal ($27.80), the Sperry top-sider Meridian sandals ($29.99) from 6PM, & the Impo Gaga wedge sandal ($39.95) from DSW. Aside from wearing these with a spring or summer dress, they’re also perfect for pairing with a blouse & cropped pants, a tunic top & leggings, & a pullover tee with silk shorts.

Which sandals do you prefer? Do you like Katy’s Suno & Aldo look? How would you style these shoes?

I’ve been one busy little Style Darling lately & it kills me that I went for so many days without posting! So much has been going on in fashion & the May issues of my favorite magazines are stacking up, collecting dust. I can’t wait to flip through them, but in the mean time, I’ve been scoping out some seriously stylish red carpet looks from our favorite celebrities, including Gwyneth Paltrow, who wore a sleek two-tone Narciso Rodriguez frock during an interview on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Also, trends I’ve been noticing are black & white looks, appropriately on my favorite Kates, such as mom-to-be Kate Middleton in a polka dot Topshop dress & Ralph Lauren jacket, Kate Hudson in a leather-accented belted dress, & Kate Beckinsale‘s patterned suit while attending the TCM Classic Film Festival.

Other looks worth mentioning are Charlize Theron‘s Jason Wu jumpsuit, Claire Danes in a leopard print Lanvin dress, Jennifer Lawrence in a sculpted LBD by David Koma, Jessica Biel in an elegant LBD at the Time 100 gala, Kirsten Dunst in a lace & leather mini dress by Emilio Pucci at the GLAAD Media Awards, & lastly, there’s Olivia Palermo looking flawless in an embellished Louis Vuitton sheath dress while at the opening of the brand’s Munich boutique.

Which looks are your favorites? Which trends are you following this spring? Which celebrities do you think always get it right? Happy Styling!

Show Me The Shoes: Celebrating Spring With A Flirty Design By Sophia Webster!


It’s been a while since I’ve posted in Super Style Wishlist, but as soon as I saw the Sophia Webster Leilou polka dot t-strap sandal ($595.00) from Neiman Marcus, I knew I had to share them. I love all of the aspects of this shoe, including the blue & pink polka dot color combination & mod black & white striped heel. These are right up Carrie Bradshaw’s alley, which will work with plenty of looks. These can be worn with a classic LBD, skinny jeans & a boyfriend blazer, a belted sheath dress, & shorts romper look.

Cover Craze: Scarlett Johansson’s Sultry Looks For Marie Claire’s May Issue!


She’s the face of Dolce & Gabbana cosmetics, a Tony award-winning actress, one of the most desirable women in the world, & the latest cover girl for Marie Claire‘s May 2013 issue. We’re talking about Scarlett Johansson, star of the upcoming Don Jon with Joseph Gordon-Levitt & the sequels to The Avengers & Captain America as the catsuit badass Black Widow.

In the interview, she talks about her career, including her work alongside JGL, who’s making his triple threat debut in Don Jon as actor-writer-director, which focuses on a man addicted to porn who is conflicted upon meeting the love of his life. Also, she sheds some light on continuing her action hero streak as Natasha Romonoff since Iron Man 2. Not to mention, she addresses the controversy behind her hacked intimate photos that she shared with ex-husband, Ryan Reynolds, while the pair were still together.

However, in terms of fashion, red is certainly the color for Scarlett, especially given her first name. It’s refreshing to see the elegant actress return to her classic bombshell style for this shoot, which is comprised of red-hot pieces from Giambattista Valli, Miu Miu, Dsquared2, Dolce & Gabbana, Calvin Klein, & David Yurman!
