Get the Look: Victoria Beckham on Glamour’s September issue

Ay-yi-yi: there’s so much fashion inspiration in the September issue of Glamour, starting with the cover girl, Victoria Beckham. On one of her bonus covers, she rocks a lavishly embellished Balmain mini-dress and teal Nicholas Kirkwood pumps.

I love this combo of a fierce dress and boldly colored heels: it’s so fun and fashion-forward, and definitely not for the faint of heart. Here are some ideas to get you started on recreating her look:

Scarf Print Bodycon Dress, $19.80, Forever 21; dress, $34.95, H&M
L-R: Disco Zebra Body-Con Dress, $19.99; Mixed Print One Shoulder Dress, $24.99; Mixed Print Illusion Dress, $24.99; Charlotte Russe

And of course, the shoes (which I featured yesterday for Cute Shoe Monday):

L-R: Sueded Keyhole Platform Pump, $35:50; Sueded Uber Platform Pump, $32.50; Round Toe Sueded Wedge, $35.50; Charlotte Russe

For her hair, Victoria is wearing a low, messy ponytail. Straighten your hair if it’s wavy, and add a little shine spray. Pull hair back into a low pony, then tousle the ends and pull out a few pieces around your face for an undone finish.

Complete the look with brown eyeliner and plenty of mascara to define your eyes, flicking the liner up at the outer corners for a subtle cat-eye. Then add a peachy-nude lip color and dark nails for a rocker edge.

Cute Shoe Monday: teal heels! (Three under $36)

This Monday, I’m torn between these three very cute pairs of teal heels:

L-R: Sueded Keyhole Platform Pump, $35:50; Sueded Uber Platform Pump, $32.50; Round Toe Sueded Wedge, $35.50; Charlotte Russe

I’m feeling inspired by the fashion in Glamour magazine’s September issue, and cover girl Victoria Beckham wears a pair of teal peep-toes on one of her bonus covers, which is what got me started on this trend. But if you’re not a fan of peep-toes, the closed-toe pumps or wedges would be equally gorgeous!

Bonus: Charlotte Russe is currently featuring Buy One, Get One for $12.50 on all pumps…and they have tons of fab new styles in for fall, so look around while you’re there–you might just see another pair you can’t resist!

Cute shoe Monday: Mossimo Kalea boot from Target

How awesome is the Mossimo Kalea boot? I just picked up a pair from Target and I must say, they’re not just good-looking—they’re comfy, too. I love the southwestern cowgirl style. The upper feels like denim and the bottom is, of course, faux leather.

They’re right in line with fall’s Southwest-inspired fashions. But they seem to be selling fast, so don’t wait to buy them! At my local Target store, the Mossimo Kalea boot display was almost completely sold out already, and a lot of their other boots were selling fast too!
