Hi/Lo: Metallic Oxfords, Loafers & Brogues

Sensible shoes don't have to be boring! The latest menswear-inspired oxfords, loafers and brogues walked the high fashion runways in an array of gleaming metallics, but as much as I love a pair of gold or silver shoes, I don't want them to cost me my weight in gold and silver either. Luckily, the metallic…

Hi/Lo: Flat Sandals For Summer

I'm sad. After years of depending on J. Crew's Capri flip-flop as my go-to summer sandal, the company went and broke what was already perfect by pushing out a new version with slightly thicker straps and this weird supportive thingy on the heel. The difference between the old and new versions is marginal but noticeable and just…

Hi/Lo: White Eyelet Tank And Pencil Skirt Suit

This Alexander Wang eyelet suit costs hundreds more than my wedding dress! White eyelet never goes out of style, but there is no way in hell I would spend $1,000+ on a white suit. I'd have to wear a plastic poncho to protect the damn outfit from THE WORLD! I saw "Can't…

Hi/Lo: Vintage-Inspired Totes For Spring

Cute and feminine with a vintage feel? I’m in. Kate Spade's Vita Riva Francis bag is super cute but a little out of my price range. I'm not gonna spend $398 on a bag to carry sunblock, beach towels, and beers! Mod Cloth’s When In Venice Beach Bag provide…

Hi/Lo: Island Photo Clutch

Is it summer yet? I'm dreaming of sand, sun, and saltwater. When I saw this Cynthia Vincent clutch, my heart screamed "need!" but my brain said "no way!" I have never purchased a clutch for $295 and have no intention of starting now. If you can’t wait to go to the beach, or…

Hi/Lo: Varsity Sweater

See that varsity tennis sweater on the left? It's by Rag & Bone (or is it "rag & bone"? I dunno) and it is THE IT SWEATER of the season. Various fashion magazines told me so and then I've seen it on at least five celebrities in the last few weeks. But it…

Hi/Lo: Abstract-Print Slouchy Pants

If you haven’t already, ease into spring with a pair of relaxed fit pants in a cool, abstract print. I know what you’re thinking. But Sophie, they look like pajama bottoms. 'Tis true, but think of the pajama-like comfort! What's not to love? Try pairing these printed pants with a short structured jacket and heels. If…

Hi/Lo: Sexy Silver Shorts

When I found these elegant Kate Spade shorts, I couldn't help but swoon. Imagine sipping champagne on a yacht in these bottoms, as your tan legs stretch out lazily… OK, so that isn’t quite my life, but a girl can dream. However, I will opt to wear the more affordable …

Hi/Lo: 9 Styles Of Sunglasses That Are Totally On Trend For Spring

Spring has arrived, the days are getting longer and the sun is shining brighter. Time to invest in a new pair of designer sunglasses! Wait, maybe not. I don't know about you, but I've lost, sat on or otherwise broken so many pairs of sunglasses over the years, that I now refuse to spend any more tha…

Hi/Lo: Lace-Up Snakeskin Stilettos

Lace-up stilettos are a hot trend this spring. These Aquazzura sandals are a playful mix of snakeskin, cut outs, and lace-up details -- at a decidedly not fuckin' around price. Luckily we found an affordable version of this sexy trend by Report for 70 percent less at…

Hi/Lo: Black & White Mules

If you are flirting with the idea of mules this spring, consider a black and white, color-blocked pair as a great way to modernize this '90s trend. These Fendi patent leather mules are exquisite and the color and texture contrasts create a clean,…

Hi/Lo: Black & White Patterned Romper

I love a fun statement piece that can be worn year round.  This Alexander McQueen romper could be paired with tights and a jacket or rocked solo, and is the kind of onesie I could picture being worn by preppy Taylor Swift or…

Hi/Lo: Floral Pumps For Spring

I love how pretty patterned pumps can brighten up an entire outfit. The unexpected burst of color screams "Spring is here!” Though many of the prettiest patterns come with the highest price tags, you can achieve the same effect for a sixth of the price. Try these Guess pumps for…

Hi/Lo: Cool Colorful Coats!

Okay, yeah, sure, you should probably have one or two neutral colored coats in your winter wardrobe -- camel, black, navy, grey, whatever. But don't you want something fun and colorful and bright and crazy to keep you warm sometimes too? Spending a bundle on an eye-catching red, blue, yellow, green or burgundy coat is probably not particularly practical, however,…

Hi/Lo: Fantastic Fall Booties!

Tonight/tomorrow morning, we set the clocks back an hour which means shorter days and colder temps have arrived. One piece of good news: you are absolutely justified in spending some of your hard-earned cash on a new pair or pairs of booties for the season. I decree it. I found seven pairs of stupidly expensive…

A leather jacket is de rigueur for fall. But not everyone has the inclination or the ethics (hello, vegans!) to spend big bucks on a nice moto jacket. That's why we're here -- to find the affordable, faux-leather versions of the high fashion styles you love. After the jump, leather jackets and "leather" jackets we…

I am still pretty securely in denial that summer is ending and fall is just around the corner, but in those rare moments when I allow myself to consider the cold temps on the horizon, its been to think about buying sweaters. I have been jonesing for this black sweater with leather pocket…
