I'm thrilled that my first round of thrifty celeb copycat looks was so well received by Bored Panda!

I firmly believe that everyone should be able to create their own fabulous style that makes them feel great regardless of age, gender or finances and I have devoted my Confessions of a Refashionista site & channel to teaching people how to shop for & DIY their own sustainable eco-fashion on a budget. I post new celeb copycat posts every week for #ThriftyThursday on my site, pop on over to check out the original outfit posts + the DIY tutorials too!

The next time you see a celeb outfit you'd love to have, look no further than your own closet + your local secondhand shop - with a bit of imagination you'll be able to put together something similar for next to nothing!

All of the 'copycat' looks below were put together from items I already had in my closet, upcycled freebies and thrift shop finds.

My Confessions of a Refashionista site is the eco-crafty corner of the Internet packed with over 1400 step-by-step upcycling tutorials for everything from groovy clothing & accessories to funky home decor, sustainable fashion articles, thrifty style tips & tricks + a healthy dose of body positive preloved DIY style inspiration!
