This week’s fashionistas proved that you don’t have to break the bank to look fabulous and trendy.  Our lucky picks knew exactly how to mix high-end pieces with lower end ones, and still look great.  Even I was fooled!

Sayegh typically shops in New York, specifically in the west village at the small boutiques.  Natalie looks to her grandmother as well as Nicole Richie for fashion inspiration.
