Emma Pillsbury Style - Get The Look - Everything But the Kitchen Sink

I can't say this enough: hearing from people who read WWEPW is the best thing about writing it. A kind note, a funny comment, a personal story - I love them all.

It's been a while since I posted some fantastic Reader Picks, so let's go through my inbox and take a look at a few!



L-R
1. One of my favorite bloggers, Melodie of Pink Cupcake Vintage, emailed me about these adorable butterfly slingback flats by Boden. Aren't they adorable? Check out Melodie's blog entry for details on where to find them!

2. The lovely Glenda found this oh-so-Emma-worthy blouse on Etsy! It's The Cecilia Blouse by Taste of Honey Vintage, and it's only $20!

3. New reader Danielle sent a link to a budget version of Emma's Juicy skirt from Showmance and Acafellas (and in a future episode, too!) You can pick up this Polka Dot Skirt from Alloy for just $32.90!




L-R
1. An anonymous reader sent a tip that the Mixit line of jewelry at J.C.Penney contains lots of Emma-friendly pieces. I love this Stretchable Black Flower Ring for $11.99. Check stores for great 2-for-1 sales, and frequent 50% off sales online.

2. The fabulous Karin has been finding incredible things this week. She spotted a black version of Emma's Lucky Brand Beaded Cardigan from The Power of Madonna, as well as the Betsey Johnson Bow Earrings from Hello at Nordstrom Rack for $13.97! Great finds, Karin!

3. Carolina tweeted a link to A Costume Jewelry Shop. They carry a huge collection of sweater clips, like these gorgeous Chartreuse Moonglow Sweater Clips for $45. Gorgeous!




L-R
1. Liz discovered a lovely substitute for the hard-to-find yellow Hailey Twistneck Dress from Hello. This Calvin Klein Sleeveless Cotton Sateen Dress at Macy's is a little pricier at $95 but comes in a rainbow of bright colors!

2. Speaking of the Hailey Twistneck Dress, look at these perfect shoes, found by Sarah! The Lemon Meringue Heel pumps from Modcloth are vegan-friendly (YAY!) and $34.99. I must have these.

3. New reader Katrina tweeted a link to this gorgeous vintage peignoir set from Etsy, inspired by Emma's in The Power of Madonna. Ro-Vel of California Chiffon and Satin Peignoir Set from luvintage - $125

Thank you to everyone who sent me such fabulous finds! Lots more where these came from, so stay tuned for another installment of Reader Picks!

LOVE that pink dress from Macy's! And those yellow heels are too cute-I love that shade of yellow!

Great finds!

OMGosh those yellow pumps are awesome! Off to look at the sweater guard clips now. :)

I actually have that CK dress from Macy's in yellow already. I never realized how similar it is to the Hailey dress until seeing the post now. I guess I have a major obsession with yellow dresses!
And flea markets are a great place to find sweater clips for a good price. I got some daisy ones for $5 just last weekend.

Sarah said...

I can't tell you how great it is to hear feedback on my fashion picks; thanks so much for picking mine! (And I really need those yellow shoes too. Actually, yellow shoes in general (and in fabulousness) are my current obsession...:)

Sarah said...

What do you think of this dress for Emma? The Peter Pan collar is very her, as is the color, which I think would look great with the butterfly slingbacks for a monochromatic look, or with the yellow bow shoes for a great pop of color:

I will be adding JC Penney to the monthly new jewelry roundup! Sweet!

Jamie said...

I am going by Penney's after work for that ring! LOVE IT! I know it is stretchable, but does anyone know the size it is "unstretched"? My fingers are really skinny (My middle finger is a size 5). I hope it isn't too big. Keep your fingers crossed for me.

Carolina said...

oh! Those are perecious! especially the JC Penny Pin! <3 And it totally makes me giddy that you mentioned A Costume Jewelery Shop on here! I love that store!

Finally bought the Lemon Meringue shoes for myself; I think you guys bought them all up, since I just barely got the last pair, and I was the one who recommended them in the first place! Just as fabulous in person as on the site. :)
