Recently, I was introduced to a fantastic website which caters directly to the budget fashionista who craves the hottest trends and most sensational fashions. Dililo stocks a wide selection of merchandise that is directly inspired by celebrity and runway trends, but for a fraction of the cost. You know all those “Lust v. Must” articles in fashion mags? Well Dililo is totally in the “Must” category!
The site is very easy to navigate based on what you’re looking for. There are categories for each garment type (like dresses or sweaters) if you’re just looking for fashionable merch in a certain category, OR you can select which celebrity’s style you’re interested in emulating and browse that way. Some examples of celebs featured on the site include: Anne Hathaway, Kirsten Dunst, Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, and similar style icons.
The dress above is one of my favorite pieces, and is selling for only $21.99! I love that there’s a picture of the celebrity (in this case, Paris Hilton) wearing the original piece… It gives you an opportunity to check out what the starlet wore with the piece you’re buying, so you can either gain further inspiration… or get an idea of what NOT to do!
This Lindsay Lohan inspired tee is another really cute option- and it’s $15.99! It’s available in several different colors, which is another neat feature of the site… A fair amount of the pieces are available in several colors, so if you share the same taste with a celeb but don’t have the same coloring, you can pick a more appropriate piece!
I’m totally obsessed with this dress… and I don’t mind Kirsten Dunst, either, heh. The Dililo version is $39.99, which I’m sure is a fraction of what Dunst paid for hers!
My only issue with the site is that there aren’t really option for ladies that wear a size Large or above. Each piece is a “one size fits all,” but the “all” range is extra small-medium. I’ve been told that the company is thinking about expanding their sizing, so if that’s something that’s important to you, include it in your comment!
Another thing the lovely people at Dililo told me? They want to give a fantastic fall piece to one of you lucky ladies! I got to select the piece up for grabs; I hope you all love it! Here it is:
Since plaid is so in for fall, I thought this would be a great addition to one of your wardrobes! The winner has their choice of red/black or red/white- woohoo! The retail value is $28.99; you can check out the rest of the details here. This contest is open to readers in any location, as Dililo ships worldwide! You have until midnight EST 9/16.
