Ask BB: Kristen Wiig's Looks from 'Bridesmaids'


I just saw the movie Bridesmaids and loved all the short dresses and blazers Kristen Wiig's character wears. I have a lot of wedding related events to attend this summer and think her look would be perfect. Any ideas on where to shop? —kendraoc via The Budget Babe forums

From photos I've found online, I'm loving Kristen Wiig's on-screen wardrobe! As you mentioned, her character Annie wears a lots of cute, playful print dresses paired with fitted blazers and colorful jewelry for a look that's casual yet pulled together and fun. She's also a fan of stripes, which makes her an instant winner in my book.

Keep reading for some outfits I put together inspired by Kristen's "vintage modern" movie style. (You can click on any item for shopping details.)

Off the Rack: Payless June Offerings, Plus The Good Shoe Project




It's BOGO time once again at Payless, so I stopped by one of the stores in my area to see if I could find anything worth getting. Selection varies greatly from store to store, but I did see some cute sandals, including red and white polka-dot espadrilles, some basic white peep-toe wedges and some simple yet chic metallic strappy flat sandals, which look incredibly comfortable and perfect for pairing with shorts or summer dresses.

I also noticed Payless has launched something called The Good Shoe Project: When you buy a pair of Payless "Hope" shoes (a simple canvas slip-on, $19.99), Payless will donate a pair of shoes to a child in need. Of course Payless is piggybacking off of TOMS shoes but it seems like Payless might be able to reach a different demographic with their campaign, and it's all for a good cause after all. The fact that the Payless slip-ons look like TOMS doesn't bother me as the TOMS design is based on age-old footwear styles worn by countless cultures around the globe, so it's nothing original.
