Project Beltway


It’s what you look out for when you’re scamming quality knockoffs at Zara or Target or Forever 21 or even scouring vintage stores: details that add some pricey-looking design quality without the price. It’s a good rule of thumb to go by when you’re shopping at H&M or any of those places…Does this look expensive? Does it look like I got it at a cheapo store?

I swear, it helps you find the good stuff.

Anyway, I love the oversized tailored pleats and the heft of the skirt (DKNY from Neiman Marcus), the equally structured jacket (Nanette Lepore)and her Hu’s shoes.

UPDATE: So clearly her clothes are expensive–I’m not saying that her look is CTLE (as a commenter just pointed out, her clothes are CT ARE E), but the great detailing and quality look of her outfit can serve as an inspiration for those on a tighter fashion budget. She clearly wasn’t hitting up the bargain stores, but with all of the great knockoffs and affordable design around, you can look just as good. She just serves as inspiration for the CTLE rule…
