Bling It On


It’s time to seriously spice up your style ladies!

How many times have you looked into your bulging closet, and thought “I have nothing to wear”??
So often we get caught in a fashion rut – we get so sick of everything we already own, even if we just bought it last week!

Well, I know exactly what you need to put some life back in your wardrobe!
BLING is exactly what the doctor ordered!shoes_1024x1024

But where should you start? For some of us, it can be hard to imagine buying a dress completely covered in sequins. If you’re not really ready yet for hardcore sparkle, then maybe a gold sparkling single breasted jacket from Etro is exactly what you need! A jacket is the perfect accessory – each to throw on, and complements all outfits. ETRO-GOLD-JKT-2Add some sparkle to it, and you’ve got a classic accessory with the volume turned up! Throw this jacket over a pencil skirt, and it will instantly give you some flair without going overboard. It would be perfect for the holidays, or any event where your wardrobe needs an update.

If you’re ready to increase your dosage of bling a bit, I would suggest trying this elegant gold cocktail dress by Oscar de la Renta. It has just enough shine to make you feel like a million bucks without crossing the line of costume. Although the shape of the dress is very classic, the color is what really makes this a unique and exciting piece. This gold color highlights any skin tone, and is perfect for those nights when you just want to step out from your LBD comfort zone! Wear it to impress your hubby on date night, or to outshine everyone at your high school reunion!oscar_gold_dress_2_1024x1024

So now that I’ve eased you into the world of bling, it’s time to get serious! We all need to add some sequins, rhinestones, crystals and glitter to our lives! Accessories are the perfect way to add extra bling into your wardrobe. This silver glass stones tote from Valentino is the perfect way to bring a lot of sparkle to day time! Wear this tote out shopping with a simple outfit, like jeans and a tee, so you don’t overdo it. VALENTINO-SEQUINS-CLUTCH-7Because of its size, it can fit all of your essentials plus anything you might happen to pick up on the way! And for night, this Valentino Sequin Clutch Bag can be the perfect addition to your sexy night out look.  Because the bag is small, the crystals and sequins won’t clash with what you’re wearing, and will add a sexy touch!VALENTINO BEADED BAG 1

Now are you ready for some hardcore sparkle? I think you can handle it! My favorite way to wear lots of bling is on my feet with these Ruthie David gold spikette platform pumps! These amazing shoes are covered with golden glitter leather, and are studded with rhinestones and spikes! They are in your face, attention grabbing shoes that will make you feel like a bad ass! These shoes are certainly not for the faint of heart, and might even cause you to be a little rebellious! But if you need a major dose of bling in your life, and shimmer just won’t cut it for you, then these are the shoes for you.spikette_2Bgroup

I want to hear how you’ve added some bling into your wardrobe!  Do you prefer to stick with a shimmery gold, or kick it up a notch with larger rhinestones?

Which Look is Le$$?

Have an appetite for designer styles but can’t afford to fund your expensive taste? There are ways around that, so get the look for less! Put it to the test – I bet you can barely tell the difference.

So which memorial day outfit is the knockoff? To your right is the nearly $1300 outfit consisting of a Charles Anastase dress, DVF shoes, and Helene Berman hat, while the almost identical outfit on the left costs less than $300. Save $1000? Yes, please!



These ones are almost identical! Can your hunger for designer styles lead you in the right direction this time? On the left are Christian Louboutin heels which ring up a total of $995! On the right are heels by Jessica Simpson which can be found at and cost a mere $98. When you find a match this close and are on a budget, I’d say why not go with the cheaper pair!?… Except for the fact that the other choice are Louboutins!!! (As you can see, I’m still a little torn.) But at least your wallet will thank you!

This one may be a little easier to tell which is which, but without having one next to the other you would never know. On the left is an original Bottega Veneta that would break your bank at a whopping $4,050! You can grab the one on the right from Forever 21 at for $35… That’s over $4,000 you can save for an almost identical look! Incredible, right!?

So we’ve seen it done with clothes, bags, shoes, but you can even steal a celeb’s accessories at a fraction of the cost! On the left are Ippolita teardrop earrings that go for $515, where you can get the look-alikes from t+j Designs on their website for $12!

Now what if you could get the look for less without feeling like you betrayed your favorite designer by going with a cheaper version? That’s what Boutique on 57 is all about – bringing you real designer fashion at up to 75% off the retail price! Yes, I did say real designer styles and affordable in the same sentence.
