The Look For Less: Sienna Miller

The starlet walking the streets of NYC.

   One of my all-time favorite stylish stars is Sienna Miller. I love her as an actress and I love her as a fashionista. She has a bold style that she really takes ownership of. She makes casual bohemian look classy and she makes any gown look glamorous.  The best part about her style is her confidence. Every red-carpet pose dons a big grin and she's never one to be scared of expressing her style. Here is how to get her cool, laid-back weekend look...

Old Navy-boyfriend sweater-$24.50
Doki Geki-ruched sleeve boyfriend blazer-$48
American Eagle-crystal cord-$15.50
Forever 21-soft acid washed jean-$24.80
Wet Seal-stud bottom satchel-$24.50
Urban Outfitters-chelsea crew perforated oxford-$58

Total Outfit Cost: $195.30
Sienna's Loewe Bag: $1,650.37

    Now that drama club is over for the season, I'm hoping to have a lot more time for posting! I hate not being able to post frequently or read as many of everyone else’s lovely blogs! But, I am also sad that drama's done because it was so much fun performing "Hello Dolly!" I went to Goodwill the weekend before our performance to get a dress for my costume, although I ended up wearing a different one instead. The dress was only $4 and since it's too long the way I bought it, I plan on hemming and fixing it up a bit. I also got a pair of red heels and a brown clutch for next to nothing. I'll be posting about the dress and shoes in the near future! For now, here's today's outfit, including my new clutch.

I felt like a blue jay today!

scarf-a nameless one I've had for a while

The Best of Celebrity Closets

   I've pondered the reasons why anyone would want to be a celebrity and the only one I can think of is for the clothes! Sure, it's probably exciting to be famous, but it must be tiring going to so many events, constantly being in tabloids, and losing all anonymity and privacy. For me, the only reason all that money would be worthwhile is having a closet filled to the brim with whatever clothes I want. Half the fun would be just decorating a closet to put my weekly designer purchases in! My dream closet would be as big as my bedroom with either a glamorous carpet or sophisticated hardwood flooring, a vintage wallpaper all around the walls, comfy chairs to lounge in while contemplating my newest outfit, lots of storage space and shelving, a glass table for all my jewelry, and of course, a glimmering chandelier. While I'm not a celebrity, I still love to think of new ideas to make my closet cuter, more organized, and more efficient. Some days, I feel like painting the walls pink, but other days I want to cover them with classy wallpaper. I keep everything organized by color-coding the clothing I hang and putting everything else in baskets and bins. I may never get mine to look like a movie star’s, but it’s still fun to marvel at the best closets of Hollywood.

In the center of Fergie's closet, a circular ottoman sits draped with luxurius fur...a closet fit for a queen!

Eva Longoria needs a ladder just to get to her top shelf!

Nikki Hilton has simple decor to focus on the clothes in her spacious closet.

Although I've never coveted Paula Abdul's outfits, she sure has plenty of covetable shoes!

You don't even need to see much of Sarah Jessica Parker's closet to know she has one of the best.

Kim Cattrall has an organized, clean closet, perfect for putting together a stylish outfit.

Olivia Palermo's closet is so stuffed with clothing, I'm not sure there are any walls in there!

My favorite closet is Olivia Wilde's. The rustic, wood paneled walls offset the fluffy rug, gorgeous vintage vanity, and black details seen in the hangers, chandelier, and chair.

Being a stylist for celebrities, Rachel Zoe definately has the wardrobe to match!

The stars sure love their animal print, and Kimora Simons is no exception.

Also...I have moved my giveaway closing date to April everyone has plenty more time to enter!

Happy Easter!

Dress-Old Navy
Shoes-Kelsey Dagger

   I hope everyone had a lovely Easter this weekend! It was so nice to have beautiful weather for once! Most Easters are during colder weather...and it's not unusual to still see snow on the ground! My family had a yummy brunch on our deck and we just sat and enjoyed the sun for hours. With warmer weather, I was also able to wear my new sun dress I got from Old Navy. It just happened to match my Easter basket too (yes my siblings and I still look for hidden baskets every year)!

My sisters, my mom, and I died eggs, but we kind of turned it into a photoshoot!

My cute little straw basket...filled with candy of course!

My bangs were driving me nuts!

Our bunny cake we decorated with colored coconut!
