The recessionista has been spotted everywhere: on the streets, on the set and even on the red carpet. I have always been a fan of mixing high-end pieces in with more inexpensive items (e.g. a fab dress you picked up at the thrift store with your fave killer manolos). To me, that whole matchy-matchy concept screams “I have no personal style.” And as it turns out, some of our favorite celebs feel the same way.
Natalie Portman looking fierce in a Jason Wu dress, satin bag, Aldo peep-toes and Tiffany & Co. jewelry
Country Darling Taylor Swift was looking casually chic shopping in London in pairing an Armani Exchange cardigan with argyle tights and a pleated skirt.
We can always count on our favorite Gossip Girls to work it out! Little J and S are the perpetual trend-setters.
