The LT Savvy Style Challenge: Meet Stephanie of Love and Lace!

Welcome to the London Times Savvy Style Challenge, where we had four of our favorite fashion bloggers style one dress for both day and night with only $100 (a toughie, right?). For the next two weeks, we’ll be introducing you to these stylish women, breaking down their buys and maybe sharing a savvy shopping tip or two! First up? Meet Stephanie of Love and Lace

Hello LT readers! My name is Stephanie Poli and I am a film editor and graphic artist from south Orange County, California. I own and operate two small businesses, SP Creative and the Darling Loves Dapper shop on Etsy. I’m happily married to my charming Mr. of 14 years. Fall is my favorite season for two reasons: Halloween and the fashion! I would describe my style as eclectic. One moment I’m sporting a vintage-inspired frock a la Audrey Hepburn, the next my biggest sunglasses and boho bag. Through the medium of fashion I am able to create and express a ‘new me’ everyday. Other loves: coffee, blogging, typography, indie music and Italian food.

Stephanie scored this adorable heart handbag at Forever 21 for $25.00!

The flats are from Target for $15 – perfect for a day of savvy shopping?

We love how she added a twist to the outfit with this little beret from H&M for only $6.

For night, Stephanie took the belt on the dress, twisted it backwards and added a blazer (which she picked up for $25 at H&M). What a great trick!

Ever so clever, Stephanie used this cosmetic bag from Forever 21 as a clutch. Just the right size for a night out and you can’t beat the $5 price tag.

The bold statement necklace ties together the look. We would have never guessed she scooped it up for $10 at Forever 21.

For her shoes, Stephanie got extra-savvy and did a DIY on a pair of her heels. You can learn how to do it here – and all of the supplies are only $7!

Don’t forget to vote for Stephanie here if she’s your favorite and you’ll be automatically entered to win $150 to London Times as well as a $100 Amex card to complete your look!
