Golden Globes IRL
Posted on January 12 2016
There is something about the Golden Globes that speaks to our inner Popstar/Actress/Diva/Taylor Swift. Maybe it's the flash of the paparazzi, the plush red carpet, or all the painfully good-looking celebs strolling around with shiny white smiles. But lets get real here ladies. I think we all know what captivates us at this awards show: The fashion. Those gowns glue us to the TV each year while we wear our old prom dresses and binge eat french fries without shame. And this years fashion was phenomenal. We saw gorgeous looks from Valentino's plunging necklines to Givenchy's floral cape gown. And running through every girls head after seeing these looks is, "Can we like wear this stuff IRL (In Real Lyfe)??" The answer is, Yes. Yes you can. Or at least a tamer, wearable, everyday version that is. And the great news? ShopSeptember carries new, hard-to-find designers that can mimic these amazing looks with a casual, everyday air and a much lower price tag. Can we get a unanimous "Hoorah!"? Right now, we are obsessed with Kristen Dunst in her black, low-dipped Valentino gown. For a gorgeous alternative, take a look at our Dio dress by designer The Jet Set Diaries. This piece laces down the front and features a cascading ruffled hemline that flows beautifully when walking. Wear with lace up, over-the-knee boots and a leather jacket for a casual, yet still ultra-glamorous look. Cape dresses are trending big this season and after seeing Cate Blanchett flawless and fabulous in Givenchy, our hearts stopped. Cape dresses are simply a MUST. Get your hands on one for yourself with our Sahara Mini dress. Shorter in length and the best LBD ever, this dress can be worn for any dressy occasion or casual afternoon with friends. Pair it with a stiletto heel and metallic clutch for glam or wear with ballet flats and fun, chunky jewelry for a quirky work to bar look. The Golden Globes blew us away with so many amazing looks featuring sequins, deep burgundies and ruffles. If you are looking for a wow-effect dress, try our oxblood Elegance Maxi Dress. This dress has a high slit and an open back for that extra sexy feel. And for only $95, You can afford this dress plus extra french fries for your next Globe watching party! We also adored Jennifer Lawrence's architectural silhouette in Dior. For a similar look, our Paper Trails Maxi by Aussie designer Keepsake has a gorgeous high-neck funnel collar and sheer cut outs for an elegant, modern look. Pair with a red lip and fur clutch to finalize the look.
