Kate Mara in H&M The Garden Collection

Earlier this year H&M gave us a sneak peek at their eco-friendly Garden Collection. It finally hit stores last week and consists of organic cotton, organic linen and recycled polyester.

Actress Kate Mara was recently spotted wearing the $39 red rosette dress from the line.

This has to be my favorite dress from the Garden Collection. And her look can easily be recreated with nude peep toe heels and a basic black clutch. Perfect for a festive party look.

Asos Princess Peep Toe Shoe, $42.74.
Aldo Steiniger Clutch, $35.

Has anyone checked out H&M’s Garden Collection in stores or better yet, have you purchased anything?

“Designer” on a Dime – Alexander Wang

This Alexander Wang Corset Dress is certainly swoon-worthy and celebs like Rihanna and Paris Hilton seem to love it. If you can’t afford the $795 price tag, Asos’ Contrast Cup Mesh Dress is only $76! Hmm, I think I’ll go with the cheaper (identical!) version.

I absolutely love Rachel Bilson’s style. Easy breezy Cali chic, as I like to call it. She was recently photographed in an Elizabeth and James Laurent Plaid Shirt, skinny jeans, flat boots and a cross body bag.

The shirt alone is $225, eek! But we can do better than that! Here are some picks for Rachel’s head to toe look for less (the entire outfit costs less than the shirt).

Charlotte Russe Leather Flat Boot, $34.99 *the cuff can be folded up*
Aeropostale Plaid Camp Shirt
, $24.99

Forever 21 Solid Colored Skinny Jean, $17.80
Piperlime Freebird by The Sak Stitch Medium Shopper
, $39.99. The color’s different but the style’s are similar.

Celeb Style on a Dime – Natalie Portman

Natalie Portman is definitely living fly on a dime. We already know she wears Aldo, and this past weekend she graced the red carpet in a Rodarte for Target slip lace dress ($39.99) with a black blazer.

My initial reaction to the collection was a big thumbs down but I haven’t had a chance to see it up close and personal. Check out The Budget Babe’s first hand review of Rodarte for Target.

Do you guys like seeing celebs wearing affordable (i.e. under $100) fashion?
