Forever 21 Horse Top  |  J. Crew Perfect Fit Tank  |  Pleasure Doing Business Stripe Skirt  |

Christian Louboutin Leopard Patent Pumps (similar here)  |  t+j Designs Gold Twisted Hoop Crystal Earrings  |  t+j Designs Delicate Link Metal Necklace  |  t+j Designs Black Envelope Clutch and Bow Bracelet to launch soon!

I have been eyeing the below Marc by Marc Jacob’s Panthera Blouse, but didn’t want to spend $328 so when I stumbled upon this Forever 21 Horse Top I was very excited!  I loved the similarity in color and the horse print, plus the silhouette is so easy to wear with numerous things.  I am obsessed with fashion and constantly review magazines and blogs for ideas.  I tag items I am loving and with watching my monthly spending budget, I shop for similar items for less.   Mixed with high end pieces that I have owned for years, no one would know the deals I get!

If you love leopard pumps, I recently found the ones below I’m loving and they are $135!  The pattern is pretty and I love the pony hair texture.  You’ll be surprised to know they are by Ivanka Trump, but while shopping Nordstrom, I found her designs were stylish, comfortable and affordable.
