She looked so put together yet free spirited consistently, from her grew hues to her long gold chain lightning bolt necklace. I do live in Canada so shipping to my great nation can sometimes be a hurdle. Any help with this will be greatly appreciated! Thank you very much :)
Yay, I love doing these celeb inspired Personal Shoppers. I make it my personal mission to find the exact piece the celebrity was wearing and when I can't find it, I dupe it. Such as that necklace. Because oh. my. god. who can afford a $790 lightning bolt (#1)? I picked a few outfits from the movie that would be easy to copy with affordable pieces, although I did manage to find some exact matches as well. Because I clearly have too much time on my hands... -Magzilla
1. Willow and Clay Plaid Blouse ($32)
2. Vintage Seiko Round Roman Numerals Watch ($100)
3. Citizens of Humanity Rocket High Rise Skinny Jeans ($176)
4. Forever21 Floral Tunic ($20)
5. Steve Madden Caryssa Heels in Blush ($50)
6. Ajito Faux Leather Shoulder Bag ($45)
7. 7 for All Mankind Women's Farran Strappy High Sandal ($265)
8. Caslon Elbow Sleeve Cardigan ($48)
9. James Perse Twisted Wrap Mini Skirt ($135) But, of course, because this is the exact skirt she wore in the film, the darn thing is sold out. However, this clever lass figured out a way to fake your way into this skirt with a knit scarf.
Lightning Bolt Necklace:
1. Lizzie Scheck Lightning Bolt Necklace ($790) THEEEEE necklace from the movie.
2. Sterling Silver Lightning Bolt Charm ($8)
3. White Trash Charms Lightning Bolt Charm & Necklace ($170)
4. O2 Designs Bolt Necklace ($70)
OR you could be a frugal fashionista, buy a cheap lightning bolt charm and string a 30 inch chain through that bad boy.
