Reign on the CW

Reign-New-Poster-reign-tv-show-35839791-1200-1800It’s almost impossible for me not to love anything set in a time filled with floor length gowns, royalty, and speech that is as eloquent as it is charming and witty.

Reign, which airs on the CW, is the latest show to offers us a look into the ever intriguing past. Thanks to ScoutedApparel.com I was able to create a hairstyle that is appropriate for both a maiden of 1557 and an L.A. native. You too can recreate this look with one of Scouted Apparel’s lovely chain headbands available HERE

Get Alexandra Daddario’s Cosmopolitan Look for Less!

Cosmopolitan June 2013

Recognize this lovely young actress? You most likely remember Alexandra Daddario from Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief. She’ll also be starring in the soon to be released sequel, Sea of Monsters.
The outfit she wore in her June Cosmo shoot was cute but pricey. I think a casual look like this should be way more affordable.
Ready to see the total cost for her look? Top: $ 375 10 Crosby Derek Lam Shorts: $141 James Jeans Bra: $98 Fortnight Grand Total: $614!!
And what’s it going to cost you to recreate it….$50! Or you could use a pair of jean shorts you already own and just find your self a striped top :)
Love,
Niki

Steal Kelly Osbourne’s Cosmopolitan Cover Look!

Kelly Osbourne is gorgeous! I love her hair, her new style, everything. She’s also on the cover of this month’s Cosmopolitan and after reading her interview it’s easy to see why people adore her.

Kelly has definitely grown on me and become a bit of an inspiration. I like that she stays true to herself, speaks honestly, and isn’t easily intimidated. Also, I’ve been working to get back in shape so she is a big fitness inspiration! Check out that bod….that girl worked hard for it and she completely deserves it.

And now, we must steal her style! I raided my wardrobe for pieces to create a similar look but it wasn’t easy. The skirts and bustiers Kelly wears are bright, bold, and …designer. But I was able to create a similar vibe with a few pieces I already own. Hope you like it  **fingers crossed**

Lara Croft Tomb Raider Inspired Look

LaraCroft2013

LaraCroftFireI love doing style thief posts. They’re creative and I get to dress up…. that’s an ideal day in my book. This look was inspired by a not-so-typical and not-so-real celebrity, Lara Croft. The badass tomb raider hottie.  No, I’m not a gamer but style inspiration can literally come from anywhere.
I saw a commercial featuring Lara’s new look and felt compelled to recreate it. If you wipe off my fake blood and lose my pseudo war wound bandages, you actually have a very wearable everyday outfit. And to me, that is one of the coolest parts. Most of my outfit was thrifted or already in my closet but I created a set with items to help you recreate the tomb raider look.
I really want to start doing more style thief posts and show you how to get the looks you love from movies, tv shows, magazines and anywhere else you can find inspiration. You can send me looks you want to see recreated via email: Niki@LoveNiki.com or leave a comment on my Facebook page: Facebook.com/MsLoveNiki

Get the Look: Emma Stone’s Eyes

What You’ll Need:

Urban Decay Smoked PaletteMaybelline Color Tattoo

This week featured the lovely and talented Emma Stone. I love her sweet style and how genuine she comes across! As I continue to recreate looks, I want you guys to know that LoveNiki is a place full of love. I’m not here to bash or judge celebrities’ style or life.

I love being able to look at them and the world around me for inspiration. I think the world would be a much better place if we all made an effort to support each other and our uniqueness :)

On to the makeup… The biggest secret to Emma’s look is getting the blue to pop. Use a white cream base like the one above and your blue shadow will really stand out! I may be a beginner but playing with makeup is fun. Lol

Love,

Niki

I think I’m in love with denim shirts. They’re cute, warm and have a cool casual look. The skirt and pointy heels that Emma wore helped her outfit look more date night-ish and although I have almost the same exact heels, I wanted to keep my look casual. Hence the sunnies and leopard flats :)

I hope you’re having a good week! I’m excited to be heading to the snow in just a few days (I’ll bring back lots of pix!) Do you have any plans for this weekend? And how do you feel about these style thief posts…..want more? Or less? Lol

Love you lots,

Niki
