It’s like when you find that absolutely perfect little black dress. Or discovering a pair of comfortable heels that go with virtually any outfit. Once you find those sunglasses—you know, those ones that go with every outfit for every occasion—the rest of your look just kind of seem to fall into place.
Over the course of my time here at BonLook, I have become quite partial to changing up my glasses and sunglasses on a daily basis (actually, I frequently change sunglasses multiple times a day). Despite all this eyewear variety that comes with the territory of being a blogger here, I have a few fail-safes that I always gravitate toward when I need a style that goes with everything. Urban Dandy is one of those styles. It was actually my first-ever sunglasses style here, and I still wear them so very frequently.
Putting together a look that embodies Carey Mulligan’s timeless style wasn’t too much of a challenge. The challenge was in keeping each piece as affordable as possible. I think that this look, which combines certain elements of her iconic red carpet simplicity and her day-to-day classic fare, is a pretty big triumph. Not only is each piece individual under $100 (as per the “Get That Look For Less” mantra), but also everything collectively only comes to a staggeringly reasonable $234!
With Father’s Day just around the corner, we thought it’d be fun to throw together a quick gift guide that should both appeal to the sundry sensibilities of all the Dads out there and cater to a wide range of budgets.
The guide is rather minimalistic, but I think there’s truly something here for lots of different types of Dads. The concept: 4 classic kinds of Father’s Day gifts (a beer gift, cufflinks, a handy gadget, and a watch) pitched at two different price points (Budget and Big Bucks).
The whole concept of sweet indulgences that don’t break the bank is the subject of this blog post. After a long, hard week of trying on sunglasses, blogging, and Intagramming/Tweeting/Facebooking (ahem, yeah, I know my job is awesome) I love to pamper myself with an afternoon of relaxation. If you can afford to have a weekly spa day, then kudos to you lucky lady! This post is for the rest of us who love to have a lavish afternoon but don’t want to shell out too much. I’ll be sharing my favourite at-home pamper session where everything comes to less than $100 (hey, just like your future new prescription sunnies!)
Hello BonLook Beauties!
We couldn’t be more excited for the upcoming season of Mad Men (we might be counting down the days), and what better way to fuel our anticipating than by creating some ultra-affordable retro looks inspired by some of the shows stylish leading ladies?
I put together two different looks based on the style of two of the most iconic female characters in the show: Betty and Joan. These two women are very different—both in terms of personality and fashion—but both incredibly beautiful! In keeping with BonLook’s drive for affordable fashion, each item in these two looks cost $100 or less! That way, you can incorporate a few of these retro-inspired gems into your wardrobe without breaking the bank and unleash your inner Joan or Betty (or perhaps even both, if the mood strikes—at this price you can allow your day-to-day prerogative dictate your retro digs)!
Hey BonLook Beauties!
Here in Montreal, the rumour of spring that had been going around for the past couple weeks has finally become something a little bit more tangible and here at BonLook we couldn’t be more excited about one of Spring 2013’s biggest trends: statement sunglasses! Let’s be honest—we’ll use pretty much any excuse to grab a new pair of bold shades and rock them like it’s nobody’s business! From Diane von Furstenberg to Anna Sui, statement sunglasses have been popping up all over the runway; we have rounded up a few of our top picks so that you can get this ultra-wearable trend this spring. What’s better is these luscious picks are ALL under $100.
Our very own Sophie Boulanger has recently been traipsing around Milan, seeking some style inspiration and scoping out all the upcoming trends for you guys. This week, I sat down with her to discuss her trip and some of the style bombs we can expect to be coming our way in terms of eyewear for Spring 2013 and beyond! Here are some of the highlights from our interview:
Well it’s official and if you hadn’t heard about this before today we ask you: where have you been? Beyoncé gave birth to baby girl Blue Ivy Carter on January 7th. Can you believe Jay-Z already released a song for his newborn daughter called Glory?! If you listen to the song carefully, you can even hear Blue Ivy’s cries at the end… Is it too much too fast? Will Jay-Z’s little girl be the most talked about baby in 2012?
In other news… Who’s ready for the 2012 People’s Choice Awards? It airs tomorrow night! We’ll be watching :)
