If you're anything like us, there's a certain high you get after finally making the decision to buy that item you've been lusting after for months. Unfortunately, our wallets and bank accounts don't always share the same happy sentiments. Now, with summer approaching, we're sure you've put together that list of essentials to add to your closet, be it a new statement bag or the perfect summer sandals. But before you write off the items on your list as too expensive, check out our roundup of lesser-priced versions of the accessories you'll be needing this season.
Trying to be effortlessly stylish on a daily basis is just exhausting-and FAR from effortless might I add. You need help layering chunky sweaters? Pairing shoes with wide leg jeans? Just downright stumped on how to pull off a midi-skirt? We've got you covered with some of the ways we would wear four of this season's staples to work and wherever the night takes you after...

[Salma Hayek, Charlotte Casiraghi via] Even though it doesn't officially begin for another couple of days, international celebrities, socialites and art lovers are already flocking to Venice (the Italian one) for the 2011 Venice Biennale, obviously to get a head start on the parties. You didn't think they were just going for the art, did you? The area is primo party crasher terrain this week, filled with truly fabulous people who have lots of money to spend on the finer things in life at spectacular events, like Tuesday night's Il Mondo Vi Appartiene dinner held at Fondazione Cini. Now, to the important part: who wore what.

While most people in the fashion industry are eager for any form of publicity they can scrounge up, this certainly does not ring true for Britt Aboutaleb, the associate editor for Fashionista.com, the style website with the cult-like following. When a picture of the 24 year-old popped up on Altamira only months ago, the responses, while all positive, were ones of "Oh, that's what she looks like!".

Alice Dellal first came to our attention thanks to her significant other: Pierre Casiraghi, who is third in line for the throne of Monaco -not to mention, the grandson of Grace Kelly. (Random fact: Alice's brother, Alex, is dating Pierre's sister, Charlotte). We're slightly embarrassed that this is the first thing we noticed the British beauty for, considering her modeling career, jet-set group of friends, and eclectic style. Not to mention, the controversial party girl is also to inherit a chunk of her grandfather's 800 million fortune (in pounds, no less). Looks like real estate (and gambling) is the way to go. Especially if it helps get you some of the duds Alice wears. More»
