When I saw Emily’s Black Short Suit I thought it could be an easy outfit to re-create! I mean, who doesn’t own a black blazer, t-shirt and black shorts?  The lace/crochet shorts gives this all black outfit a little more interest which is what drew me to this short suit combo.  
I’m happy to say that my outfit (excluding accessories) comes in around $100 whereas Emily’s outfit costs $300+.  I’m not saying that’s a good or bad thing.  Because…if I had the money I’d probably buy a $100+ blazer instead of a $40 one.  But I’m wondering…do designer (or more expensive) items make an outfit look better?  What do you think?

  1. You have an awesome blog, would you like to follow each other on BLOGLOVIN? Please let me know if you decided to follow me, so I can follow you back! thank you xoxo

  2. This is one of my favorite outfits on you, ever! i love the textures and contrast with the lace. I think the more expensive items have better quality in their construction, but you can't tell unless they are side by side. I love having more items for less, anyway:)

  3. I like yours so much better than hers honestly! I think yours fits you better and you just wear it so much better. I love the look!

  4. Such a pretty outfit. Loving the shorts and the all black monochromatic look. So pretty.

  5. I honestly think your outfit looks just as good!! And those shorts are sooo cute. I've been dying for some lace/crochet ones but I'm a little tight on the money right now…too much shopping! I did see a DIY on pinterest where someone glued/sewed lace around a pair of soffe shorts (those cheap cotton shorts with the elastic waist) and I'm thinking of trying that!
