Steal her style for less – Part 1

A couple of months ago I was approached by a South Asian Publication in Dubai to do a feature for them. The feature would be entitled ‘How to look like a Million Dollars! for AED 500.’ (Yes this is how they spelt it)

So for the next couple of weeks, I would relentlessly pour through endless amounts of pictures to find one of an Icon/Idol whose look people would actually want to emulate (it sounds easier then it is, no offence to celebrity stylists!)

So after having found the look, I would run around the malls trying to find items of clothing that would a) look similar to the celebrity’s look and b) that would not add up to more then AED 500.

When the feature was finally compiled and done and I was starting to feel particularly  pleased with myself, I  found out for whatever reasons that it was was not actually going to get published.

However now that I have my own platform for all things fashion related, I decided not to let my hard work go to waste. I hope you enjoy my efforts in a post I like to call ‘Steal her style for less!’
