Keri Russell's Look For Less

New reader, Nichole, sent me a request for this Keri Russell look. And I love it. I already loved Keri Russel because she's fabulous (Felicity Season 1, anyone?), but the style she is exuding in this magazine shot brings my admiration to a whole new level!

Here is my best stab at her look on a budget:

Ruffled Cardigan - Forever 21 -$29.00
Striped Woven Top - Forever 21 - $15.80
Lace Trim Cami - Forever 21 - $5.80
Bootcut Jean - Forever 21 - $27.80
Patent Loafer - Urban Outfitters -$38.00
TOTAL: $116.40

The most difficult thing to find for this look was a button up shirt with horizontal stripes. I never did find one that I liked. So, I substituted a more traditional vertical striped top. But, other than that I feel like I hit pretty close to the mark.

What do you all think? Did I get it right? Is it something you would wear? Leave a comment!

Also, I just added a contact feature over to the right, so if you have a request, you can just click the button to submit it!

Thanks for reading, and as always,

Happy Shopping!


  1. So cute! I need some help. I have been searching high and low for a pair of reasonably priced skinny jeans. I am tall and thin but I still have hips so I prefer skinny jeans that do not have stressing at the hips (which makes me look larger). I love a dark wash. I hate it when the skinny jeans almost "gather" at your ankle. I don't want to spend too much money. Help!

  2. Love this look!
    Cindy - Try Ann Taylor Loft for afforadable and cute skinny jeans!

  3. i love this look! good job!!!

  4. Love it! your looks for less are the best!

  5. This is pretty cute, I never think about layering an oxford shirt, it's pretty cute with that cardi- the shirt Keri is wearing is interestin, it's striped and polka dot...I'm not sure I'd wear it even if you did find something like it! ;)

  6. love it. you did great.

  7. Keri Russell is a babe, no doubt. Nice work on the look for less and to be honest, the striped shirt you found is totally fine in my opinion.

  8. I LOVE Keri Russell!! Felicity is still one of my fave shows. Great job replicating her look! Great cardi :)

  9. Hey Cindy-

    Just responding to your blog question. My big reccomendation for skinny jeans is ALWAYS buy them in store after trying them on. I only own two pairs of skinny pants after looking at them and trying them on for a year.

    I like to look at Nordstrom Rack because they carry higher quality denim at lower price.

    If the pants are scrunching at the ankle, that is something that can be fixed with a simple hem (as long as you like how they fit otherwise). I am petite, so most pants are long on me and I have to hem everything.

    Keep trying!

  10. i don't care about the outfit...necessarily, but i love her hair. might have to take that photo in next time. my natural curl could do this, i think.

  11. hey! susan just posted a diy, as her my request, on how to make one of those cardigans yourself:
