Business Casual Superstar #307: Bargain Babe: Leighton Meester’s “Blair Waldorf” Ensemble

Wow, it’s been forever since I did one of my Bargain Babe posts! Hahaha, I totally almost forgot about that stupid drawing I did for it. (I drew the character and the gavel, but the background is a stock image that I manipulated a bit.) The image isn’t all that accurate, either, because it does […]

Business Casual Superstar #108: The Bargain Babe: Prada Studded Bootie

Back again, and the Bargain Babe is still feeling shoes, which should come as no surprise. Today, I’m really loving these Prada studded booties, which you can buy at Barney’s for $870. Yup. $870.

Business Casual Superstar: Designer Duds!

As you’ve noticed, I don’t incorporate designer pieces into the BCS series. I will if they’re ridiculously discounted, but even a heavily discounted JACOBS by Marc Jacobs for Marc by Marc Jacobs in collaboration with Marc Jacobs for Marc by Marc Jacobs (I WISH I were making that label up; I’ve seen it on a […]
