Steal Emma Watson's style!

Hello Beauties, Today, I have a special post for you guys.  I will recreate a celebrity look for less than a few thousand or a few hundred dollars.  Instead, I will recreate the look for about fifty dollars or less.  Sound good? Well, let's see how I did. I picked out this cute outfit worn by Emma Watson.

The striped dress worn by Emma Watson is a classic piece that will become a staple in any wardrobe.
And she cinched in her waist with a skinny black belt.  Since it was fall when this picture was taken, she layered the look with a white scarf and a black blazer.  Then she tied the whole outfit together with a pair of classic black heels.  This look is perfect to recreate because most of us already have at least one or two of these pieces sitting in out closets.  Am I right?

Alright, let's start with the core of this outfit, the striped dress. Luckily, I found a great sleeveless striped dress while thrifting. And I was super lucky that day! There was a sale at Diversity Thrift, where all clothing was one dollar!

And I love the zipper detail in the back!  The great gold zipper with the ring clasp is a great pretty little detail!  Can you believe it was a dollar?

This is a dark chambray jacket that I got from my older cousin.  I was picking through some of her older clothes and this was a great find!  It's such a classic piece that can be worn over and over again!  This jacket looks very much like a classic black blazer.  But I decided to bring out the navy in my striped dress like the way Emma Watson has the black blazer to bring out the stripes of her dress.

And I got the belt from my mother's closet.  It's an old belt she used wear back in the eighties.  I just love it's simplicity!  Emma Watson wore a simple black belt that is very reminiscent of this simple grey belt I got from my mother's closet.

The shoes are nude Steve Madden flats.  They are so comfy after I broke them in and they're a great pair of shoes to have because you can wear them with pretty much everything.  They cost forty dollars, which is most of my budget.  But I felt that I would wear these shoes quite often, so the forty dollars would be worth it.

And this is a scarf that I knitted myself.  The yarn was on sale for about five dollars.  So, in total I spent $48.50 including tax!  I think I did pretty well!  I have a whole outfit under fifty dollars!  And the look is pretty similar.  What do you think?
