Currated Looks: Nanette Lepore meets Forever21

I'm trying something out. I'll search the interwebs to come up with looks (if you ask for something specific like a party outfit, or something for a job interview I'll focus my search) and report back to you with chic, wearable, and reasonably priced finds. For this first one I wanted to go a little bit high end mixed with the fabulousness of Forever21 but let me know what you think. I can always find better bargains if that's what you're interested in.

Option 1: I like this look because it feels luxe and fashionable without trying too hard. The apple earrings are adorable. The dress is a simple sheath which should flatter a lot of body types and that pin and bow detail keeps it from being boring. It's also a bit forgiving if you've got a slight belly pooch. I love the blue high heels or the cream ones. They both feel young and fun but the shape and material keep it subdued and appropriate for anything from work (if you're in a creative but business-oriented industry) or a wedding.

Option 2: This option is both more formal and edgier. The suit has so many lovely feminine details from the cut of the lapel to the buttons to the flair of the jacket and the detailing on the skirt. I also love the color. I'm not a huge fan of brown myself but the richness of this chocolate truffle color would look gorgeous against medium/tan skin or very pale skin with a rosy flush. The necklace is edgy and very much on trend with what I've been seeing from small-scale designers. The delicacy keeps it feminine and the gold complements the brown. The shoes are just a suggestion as any black pumps would do but I like the shine of the fabric and I think the bow helps soften the sharpness of the suit and the necklace.
