Luxe for Less: June

It’s not news how much we love a good deal, so we gathered up some items to keep you stylish, while still saving some pennies!


Sequin skirts are perfect for summer weddings and we always love a floor-grazing number. This luxe style is By Malene Birger and is originally $695. For over $500 less you can get a similar look with our Gold Paillettes Sequin Maxi Skirt!


Fun, graphic tees are essential for casual weekends and for layering during breezy, summer nights. This Markus Lupfer tee will run you $240, but for only $36 you can get the same look with our Bite Me Glitter Ink Tee!


When it comes to jewels, the layered look is super on trend right now. We love the look of this Dylan Lex number, but for much less, our Lexie Opulent Necklace will give you the same result for $700 less!


Whether it’s date night or a summer gala, a glittering cocktail dress is a necessity. This Lela Rose beauty is almost $1,600. Get the same look for only $88 with our Golden Brocade Dress!
