Payless has a great dupe for these Kristin Cavallari ankle booties!
Payless has a great dupe for the popular Kristin Cavallari 'Lash' split shaft bootie! It's currently just $29.99 and there's a BOGO sale going on, too! I'd get these 'Ula' booties for my second pair. Gotta love Payless.

Steal Her Style: Shanina Shaik's Satin Blouse and Dear Frances Boots

Shanina Shaik's satin blouse and ankle boots look for less
Shanina Shaik shows off her features in a silky low-cut blouse and denim cut-offs! Her model-off-duty look might not be easy for everyone to pull off, but we can take some style notes for fall nonetheless! For starters, her black 'Spirit' ankle booties by Dear Frances ($550) are in every It-girl's closet (think Kendall and Bella), but we'd gladly rock this similar pair under $35 instead! The block heel makes these comfortable for everyday while still looking tres chic. And if you want to update your average office button-down, consider an oversized satin blouse instead - buttoned up, of course!

Kristin Chenoweth's Travel Outfit and Pink Suitcase for Less

Kristin Chenoweth Travel Outfit and Pink Suitcase for Less
Actress Kristin Chenoweth doesn't use travel as an excuse to slack on her wardrobe game. There's nothing worse than tight pants on a flight, so boyfriend jeans will be your friend - and you'll still look like you made an effort to get dressed! If you're going to wear a sheer top like Kristin's, be sure to wear a cute bralette or even a cami if that's past your comfort zone. We couldn't help but spot the pink luggage she has, and this Guess one we found is on sale from $400 down to $160! Not only is it a screaming deal, but you'll definitely spot it first at baggage claim amidst the zillion other black suitcases.
