You know that I love to invest in pieces from small French fashion brands! But the over $100 price tag is definitely a splurge that not everyone can make.
The good news is you can still achieve that Parisian look without spending a fortune!
What I recommend doing to find styles similar to your favorite French designer pieces is to just use google! I check out my favorite French brands to find styles that I like and then just google characteristics that are similar to the French piece. For example, I’ll google “cropped eyelet top” or “button front midi skirt”. I’ll type the same thing in the search bar at my favorite retailers as well.
I was recently browsing H&M online and found this super cute button midi skirt that is almost an EXACT copy of the Rouje skirt that I wore recently. It’s just missing the tie at the waist. So I did some more searching and realized there were lots of styles available that were similar to some of the French pieces that I love! For example, this eyelet tank is similar to this Rouje top and under $25! I also love this one but it’s almost sold out. So it’s totally possible to get the almost exact same look at fast fashion sites like H&M! But you need to hurry! A lot of these styles are already sold out. The good news is, similar styles come back in stock often to just check the sites every once in awhile to make sure you don’t miss out!
Check out sites like H&M, Forever 21, Zara, and Topshop for budget friendly pieces!
I love this eyelet top from Forever 21. And the button front knit that I’m wearing in today’s post is from Zara! I was inspired by this button front tank from Rouje. It might take a little hunting and patience but eventually you can do it!

Now onto Flashback Fashion Fridays! Here’s a look from last June. Guys – this dress is actually NON-MATERNITY and keeps going in and out of stock. So keep checking back because it’s awesome. And I can’t tell you how much I wish I was back at Korakia right now. I really want a vacation…haha. My hubby and I haven’t been on a long vacation since our honeymoon 7 years ago. This was the closet we got and it was only a full day and a half because he had to go back to work. Anyway, this place is AMAZING and a total oasis from the desert.
