” I have recently bought a new white lace maxi skirt. It has no lining so I have to wear white bike shorts underneath- not so chic. Please help me find a fun stylish top I could wear with this skirt to get an idea as to what colour and style I should be looking at.”
We’d like to applaud your great fashion insight since translucent maxi skirts are very in this season Bridget. Your choice of wearing biker shorts is unique, and we’d also recommend trying a pencil skirt underneath as well. Concerning what to wear with your lace skirt, the best part about this item is that you can either dress it up or down. Why not try a loose button down denim shirt for mornings out with a pair of sandals, and then take the look to the next level with a sequined blazer and pumps? Either way, we guarantee you’ll look smashing. Good luck!

“I know how great you can find similar and cheaper versions of items, so I would like to ask for your help! I saw a picture of one of the Olsen twins wearing a basic lightweight floor-length cardigan, and the Spring 2011 Elizabeth and James line has a black one. The only ones I could find were either too much or cost over $1000! I was wondering if you could help me find a reasonably priced maxi cardigan to rock before the spring. Thank you!”
Wow, we love how most of these Ask Chic posts are about the Olsen twins clothing. Just goes to show you how coveted their style is. We even posted about how hot we thought this cardigan was a while ago. Why not try this ASOS version for $79 or this Eternal Sunshine Creations cardi for $152? Happy Shopping!

“Hi, can you guys please ID Olivia’s sunglasses? Thanks!”
Simply well-put Tina! We like how you just cut to the chase and go for the kill..and you chose a good question as well. The fashionista, not one to shy away from the cat-eye frame, was spotted around recently in a slim version of the trend. It took a little snooping around, but don’t worry, we never disappoint. Olivia is wearing Christian Dior’s ‘Zelli’ sunglasses, and they do look good. You can get your hands on them here. Happy Shopping!

“I have outworn my Ray Ban Wayfarers and am in desperate need of some new shades. I have always seen pictures of Ashley Olsen wearing these amazing pitch black sunglasses but never know what they are! Is there any possible chance you know exactly what brand they are and if not, know of anything very similar?”
How about it we do both? We’ll find out who the original sunnies are by, and find you a cheaper version as well since it’s an Olsen so these are most likely designer shades. The good news is that we found out who the glasses are by. The bad news is that the pictures are from 2006, therefore they’re probably not available. They are the Chanel 6006 rounded aviators, and it seems like both the twins are quite fond of them. Want something similar for less? Try these 80s – parallel large aviator sunglasses. Happy Sunny Shopping!

“Hello!! I absolutely love your blog, and I’ve been visiting daily since I first discovered it 6 months ago! Lately I’ve become obsessed with chunky and oversized sweaters for the fall and in your most recent post about cardigans you mentioned Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent’s Blanket Sweater. Unfortunately, I’m a poor fashion student, so I can’t really afford to shell out $400+ for just one sweater!! Would you be able to help me find some less expensive alternatives?? Thanks so much!!“
Lets start off by thanking you for your sweet compliments! We are always thrilled to feel the love! Blanket sweaters are one of the IT pieces for this Winter and we recommend that everyone MUST get one! Although the Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent version is quite the looker, there are also a few cheaper, and equally gorgeous, alternatives out there at our favorite fashion forward website- ASOS. Here are three of our faves. Happy Shopping
