The Swag Gal Presents: The Look For Less

Greetings Swaginistas, have I got a surprise for you! Today I am starting a new series called, “The Look For Less”. Once a week I will attempt to find an expensive outfit worn by a star for under $150. And the best part is I will do my best to use brands that appear in the Shop&Earn Mall so that you can earn Swag Bucks and help bring the price down even further! Isn’t that awesome?

Today’s look is brought to us courtesy of Britney Spears. She has had quite a comeback in recent months, and I thought her ‘working mother’ clothing would appeal to you ladies who are always trying to look cute while juggling a career and kids.

What I like about Britney’s outfit is the color combination of the bright blue top with the fun yellow bag set off by white sunglasses and dark jeans. Of course her best accessory is her adorable son, but I don’t think I can find another one for under 150 bucks!

Here is what I found to emulate the look:

To start off this look, I found a bright blue long sleeved v-neck t-shirt at Target for only $9.99!

Then, add a pair of dark wash skinny jeans:

Normally a skinny jean would retail for over 150 bucks, but I found it for only $29.99!

Then we add a yellow hobo bag:

Isn’t that bag awesome! I especially like the rivet detail- it makes the bag look much more expensive then the $24.99 it costs.

Now, to personalize the look, I like to add some of my own jewelry. My go-to website for amazing one-of-a-kind items is etsy.com. Etsy has hundreds of crafters that make really cool jewelry and other items that are usually inexpensive and incredibly creative.

Isn’t that locket just beautiful? I think it brings all the colors of the outfit together, and is a steal at $33! If this locket sells out (and I bet it does) be sure to check out all that FreshyFig has to offer. She has some amazing stuff.

The picture of Britney doesn’t show her shoes, but I thought these jeweled flats were perfect! I love the look of skinny jeans with flats, and the jewels on these shoes give them a little extra pizazz to complete the look. Plus, they are on sale for only $16.99!

To finish up this look for less, I present these chic white-rimmed sunglasses. To be perfectly honest, I like these $16.99 frames better then the ones on Britney!

So, the grand total of this look is $131.95, which is totally under the $150 limit! That gives you enough money left over for shipping. How awesome is that! Plus, each of these items (with the exception of the locket) can be purchased through the Shop & Earn section of SwagBucks, so can you be earning SwagBucks while you shop!

I hope you Swagsters enjoyed the first installment of The Look For Less. If you have any outfits you would like me to try and find for under $150, please send the photo link to theswaggal@swagbucks.com. I can’t wait to see what great outfits you ladies would like me to find for a better price.

Until Next Time,
