Inspired By: Amber Riley in Badgley Mischka

Welcome to a new feature on Sydne Style: Inspired By. I’ll be showing affordable versions of celebrity looks that inspire me. This isn’t a look for less post. Instead of creating a cheaper replica, I interpret star style and bring my own version into every day life. I hope you enjoy! And feel free to email me celebrity looks you want to see recreated!

At this year’s SAG Awards, Amber Riley was perfectly on trend in a lace Badgley Mischka halter. When deciding what to wear to kick off Oscars week, I thought of the Glee star’s dress and remembered my own I had scored at Shareen Vintage last year.

I liked how Amber’s ankle strap heels added a retro pin-up feel so I slipped on my own lace platforms. I was party hopping that night and needed to cover up for an earlier event. So taking note of Amber’s black bow top I added a fur vest to my dress. While I liked her updo, sleek straight hair felt more me.

Head over to the Sydne Style Facebook page to see what the dress looks like sans vest!
