I may not have the bucks to spend on designer clothing, but this look is actually very doable on a real world budget. Here is my (much) less expensive version:
Obviously leather pants were a no-go for a weekday look, but I think I was able to translate it into something work appropriate without losing all of the cool factor. Now I just need to find a few more pairs of work pants that I love. And a nude lipstick, though I don't think this pale, freckled face could quite pull off bronzer!
What do you wear to work? Any ideas of good places to find flattering pants?
