I got my new issue of Vogue this weekend and it seemed full of Victorian inspired looks for Fall – lots of delicate patterns, lace, ruffles, and a softer color palette with lots of lavender and mauve. It can be hard to pull off this style without looking dated and overly feminine, not to mention most of looks in Vogue are not what you would call recessionista friendly. Here are a few more budget friendly ideas I put together.

Boyfriend blazers were all over Paris when we were there this Spring, and I definitely think they’re a great piece to pick up for Fall. They go with everything from dresses to jeans and this one adds a casual modern edge to an otherwise very girly look. Plus I’m kind of in love with these dark green boots. The whole outfit costs just over $250.

It’s a classic look but the small touches like cut out detailing on the mary janes, cameo ring, and lace and tweed textures are antique without being fussy. This whole outfit costs $194.85 – the tweed pencil skirt is only $29!
