Golden Globes 2012 Style for Less

I recently read a fabulous article from the LA Times titled Frugal Fashion: Golden Globes 2012 Accessories; the article which can be found here showcases some accessories from the Golden Globes this year which are super affordable that anyone can purchase!

One of my favorite accessories from the article was a jewel-encrusted buckle of an eagle worn by Emma Stone as seen below (photos courtesy of LA Times Blog/LA Times) and two affordable alternatives:

Affordable Alternatives:
Eagle belt buckle $17.95 or the Rhinestone eagle belt buckle $19.95.

Of course all the celebrity outfits and accessories of the night are out of our price range, however there are a lot of comparable alternatives that look very similar, yet are very affordable. The three dresses below are a very unique style that I love, which is called "Mermaid" gowns. The are very flattering for any figure, no matter what size or height.

Below are some alternatives to the dresses above,  these dresses can be worn for prom, a wedding, or an elegant evening out. The dress on the left (blue) is a Betsy & Adam Pleat Bodice Taffeta Mermaid Gown which retails for $165 at Nordstrom.  The dress on the right (red) is a Dalia MacPhee Strapless Taffeta Mermaid Gown, which retails for $328 and it's currently on sale (50% off) for $163.90 at Nordstrom.

  You really don't have to compromise on fashion when you're on a budget, there are many options out there for all of us budget-friendly gals who want to look as fabulous as any other celebrity!  It's important to keep an eye out for sales and discounts, know what you're looking for (do some research ahead of time), and just have fun (shopping shouldn't be a chore)!
