High-Low Dressing on a Budget with Tobi & Shoes of Prey

high-low dressing

Depending on your budget high-low dressing can mean your high is $100 or $1000. For this post I am doing some high-low dressing of my own. One of my higher priced items being these awesome heels that I designed myself from Shoes of Prey (yet still under $200) and a couple of my lower priced items being items from Tobi (under $50). Here I am styling these heels two different ways with these Tobi pieces and other high-low items.

Red Tobi dress

I am obsessed with red, I have always liked the color on me but for some reason don’t wear it as much as I should. This Tobi dress is so pretty and goes perfect with these black Shoes of Prey heels with white tie detail. Let me tell you a bit about how Shoes of Prey works because it’s pretty damn cool and I am obsessed. Have you ever dreamed about designing your very own pair of shoes and then on top of that stamping them with your signature? Shoes of Prey makes those dreams a reality. Basically you start with one of their many extremely cool options which you can purchase as they are or customize them to make them more you. From the heel type and height (wedge, block, stiletto, etc.) to the material, color, sole, lining, zipper and more are all up to you and your imagination. The shoes I am wearing are called the Basel 100 and I designed them to my liking, my own original design. You can make them flats, or wedges or even snake-skin, gingham, metallic oh my, the endless options! Plus you can personalize them with a custom inscription which with code ‘Rachel’ you can get free! Mine says @tohellinahandbag on the inside, how cool is that? If you scroll to the bottom, there I included a video on how they make your customized shoes.

Tobi pink crop top

As for how I did my high-low dressing – in the top photo most of my accessories are on the pricier side (again depending on your budget). There’s the Cult Gaia bag, my Shoes of Prey heels, a Jules Smith choker and Quay sunglasses. But the rest of the outfit is more affordable from my Tobi tank and gingham pants to even my pendent necklace and headband.

In the below outfit I kept things more simple since the red Tobi dress is such a standout piece. It also happens to be one of the lower priced items. This very cool basket bag is also extremely affordable and it’s from a local online boutique called 11th Thread. Both of these pieces are less than $50! My shoes and sunglasses are on the higher side but still under $200. You don’t have to be loaded to consider high-low dressing wearing Prada with Forever 21. That’s definitely not the case. We all have different styles and different price points we like to shop at so I urge you to give it a try!

Before I finish this post I definitely need to tell you about the sunglasses in the below photo. They are by a newer brand called Legacy Eyewear and they make wooden sunglasses, awesome longboards and very cool t-shirts. Plus every pair of sunglasses sold gives an eye exam and a new pair of glasses to a child in need. How amazing is that?!

So what did you think of the video? Tempted to customize your own shoes yet? I know I am going back for more! These boots are calling my name!

Outfit 1: Red dress from Tobi, 11th Thread basket bag, Shoes of Prey sandals (use code ‘Rachel’ for a free custom inscription stamped inside your shoes) , Legacy Eyewear

Outfit 2: Pink Tobi top, Victoria Beckham for Target pants (similar and for petites), Shoes of Prey sandals, Quay sunglasses, Daniel Wellington watch, Cult Gaia Ark Bag, Quay sunglasses, Target headband (similar), Jules Smith choker, Brook & York necklace

  • #fashionisinthehair, Hell yeah it is! #AlexandredeParisgiftedme this gorgeous Excessive #Tropics hair clip. I love a good hair accessory and who knew that these would come back around? Well I guess @alexandredeparis_official did! This hair clip is definitely worth the price because 1. I'll be wearing this all summer long and 2. It's handmade in France! | This brand was started by the same man that "had the delightful idea of scattering diamonds onto Jackie Kennedy's chignon at the Official State dinner in Versailles in 1961". He has done the hair of royals, politicians and the stars of the world. If only I could go back to the 60's, I would line up to have this legend do my hair. Remind me to never cut my hair again!

I especially love wearing it with my #veloextensions from @tony_odisho. I am so used to clip-in's but these are a mix of one halo layer with a second layer of clip-in hair. What gave me trouble was the wire, it was way too long and for the life of me I couldn't figure out how to fix it! It's still not 100%, so YouTube will be my friend today. I am wearing them here and the colour is a perfect match, #8 in case you were interested 😉 Shop my daily looks by following me on the LIKEtoKNOW.it app.
