The Look for Less - Tika Sumpter

Greetings Fashion Divas,

Ms. Tika Sumpter was spotted at the premiere of Scream 4. I love this chick! I used to watch One Life to Live and I was so rooting for her to make it in the industry. She seems to be doing quite well.

At the premiere, she's wearing a really interesting outfit that I'm a little on the fence about, but she looks fab nonetheless. That orange crop jacket is oh so fly. I went ahead and tried to find this unique style for less.

Click Padded Shoulder Blazer


This is one of the closest, affordable looks I could find. Everything else was too expensive.

Left: Double Scoopneck Tank


Right: Rhinestone Ball Pendant Necklace


I love when simple pieces come together to make a stylish ensemble. As a result, you can make affordable investments in your basic staples and rock them for years.

Left: Therurer Ring $11.98

Right: Fossil Talita Flap Clutch $50.00

Left: Le Full Casual Pants $60.00

Right: Matisse Women's Darby Mule

$77.21 (on sale)

The harem pants are still in effect this season. I found many affordable options but most were sold out. The above pair fit the style above almost perfectly. At first, I assumed Tika was wearing booties but on closer inspection, you can see she's rocking some leopard print mules. Okay, do your thing. I don't own a pair of mules so I had to search low and high to find the affordable pair above.

What do you all think about Tika's look?

The pad looks very fabulous. I can understand the feeling of being amazed to have that kind of that pad because I am also a fashioner.
