Celebrity Style Steal: Cheryl Cole's Hippie Dress

I saw this photo of Cheryl Cole the other day in a magazine and love her outfit so much that I had to do a post on it. After searching google for far too long I finally found the website (http://www.bluebee.com/) that she bought the dress from but unfortunately they don't sell it anymore, however they do sell a very similar dress (below) for $398.00 here. It is pricey but it's 95% silk and I looove it :D

Regrettably, we don't all have that amount of cash to splash on a single ensemble so I decided to recreate the look using items more within our decidedly limited budget.. Here is a skirt I found from a lovely website (http://www.thelittlebazaar.com/) that has a massive range of gypsy skirts all at fantastic prices, you can find this one here for a pocket-friendly $24.99.

I have paired it with wardrobe basics to complete the look, I gave the waist belt a miss as I don't think that counts as a hijabis wardrobe essential:

I think a hippie hijab style like this would look best with the outfit, but of course you can experiment to find what works:

Hope you like the look ^-^

I'm definitely loving the colours, it allows for lots of options when tryin to pair it with a nice cardigan and hijab!

Very nice. but what a rip off for only 95% silk. hahaha.
the shop i work at Monsoon. you can google them. Sell 100% silk dresses for less then £200. Some as low as £80. I bought one before the sales, 100% silk in fushia with big white and black flowers. very formal and i wore it to a fraduation. cost me £70 bargin. Then it went ino the sale... for £25!!!!!!! I would of got it then but i needed it before the sale. But just shows that you can get nice dresses for less then what you may think :D
