Today’s splurge vs. steal is based on a look from A.L.C’s Spring/Summer 2012 runway. The leather shorts in this outfit gives your look a hint of edginess. A.L.C. is amazing at putting care-free, simple and feminine looks together. And since we are so in love, I went hunting and found out how to re-create this look at a fraction of the price. Instead of paying almost $800 for the A.L.C. shorts, I created the entire outfit for much less.
