Throughout the past couple of seasons, we have seen more families and significant others on pit road. One of the ever-present faces is that of the lovely Samantha Busch. There are weekends where we see her at all 3 races and regardless of the situation, or the weather; she always has her head held high, and looks stunning while doing so.

On her Twitter profile she mentions her “excellent taste in footwear,” and she proves this to be true each and every weekend. Samantha has garnered many of her own fans with her famous “shoe pictures” that she tweets out on race day. Also, her fashion sense cannot take a backseat! She always looks cute, and is perfectly in style. She also makes it known to her fans that her amazing wardrobe does not come at a steep price. Shopping at stores such as TJ Maxx and Forever 21 is an excellent way for her to relate to fans, and women in general. Being a “Forever 21-aholic” myself, I was very glad to hear that Samantha shops here as well.

Interaction, is yet another key to Samantha’s success. She is very active on Twitter, and often posts the answers or tips to fans question on her personal website. She includes fashion, beauty, and fitness tips, and healthy recipes.

It was this website that prompted the idea behind this week’s column. Samantha has an amazing photo gallery including shots from the racetrack, red carpet, her engagement, and events she has hosted. I have gone through and picked a few of my favorite outfits, and I am going to re-create them, within a very reasonable price range, using online websites. The majority of the items come from Forever 21, surprise, surprise. They have amazing prices on very unique clothing and accessories. So if you have ever thought, “I want to dress like Samantha Busch” here is your answer!

This dress is almost identical!
First I am going to look at a red carpet outfit. This one is from the 2010 ESPY awards; it is hard to believe that is almost 2 years ago! I don’t care how old this photo is; I love the outfit!

The Dress: I found a similar short, fitted white dress on The only difference between this one and Samantha’s is the neckline. Regardless, it is very cute and sexy all at the same time! The picture comes up as navy, but it is also available in white!
The Shoes: I found some white peep toe pumps similar to Samantha’s on This is one of my favorite websites for ordering footwear. It is the fastest shipping I have ever seen! Samantha’s shoes have little black bows on the toes, to get these buy some black craft ribbon and make yourself a set of shoe clips! There are plenty of tutorials online on how to make these, and that way you can use them on more than one pair of shoes!

The Accessories: I have found a bracelet and earrings from Forever 21. A wide silver bracelet, and silver chandelier earrings! They are really cute and they are both under $8!

The total price for a head to toe outfit: $70

Now onto the outfit Samantha wore in some of her and Kyle’s engagement photos. 

Victoria's Secret
The Dress: I found a sweaterdress very similar to Samantha’s at Victoria’s Secret, in the color, blue jewel.

The Shoes: The black over-the-knee boots that I have found also come from They are suede, which seems to be the same as Samantha’s! The heel isn’t too high, so almost anyone can wear these boots! 
The Accessories: Here Samantha is wearing a thick black belt around her waist and earrings. Of course I have found these wonderful accessories on Forever 21!

The total price: $118

Lastly, one of Samantha’s endless pit road outfits. 

This one is perfect for a hot day! We all know there are an abundance of those! I have found extremely similar pieces for this outfit, except the shoes, on Forever 21!
Forever 21 and only $10

The Clothes: Here Samantha is wearing shorts and a tank top. This is a very cute, and effortless outfit! I found khaki shorts that come with a belt! And a black tank, just like Samantha’s.
Another Forever 21 find - and under $20.
The Shoes: I have found these wedge bootie/sandals on the Dillards website. There are a few minor differences here, there are zippers on these ones, and the entire shoe is black, as compared to Samantha’s black and brown.

The Accessories: In this picture we can see Samantha’s necklace and sunglasses, so I have just focused on those. It looks like she is wearing a layered necklace, but it is somewhat hard to see. Both items here were found on Forever 21 once again.

The total price: $84

These prices may look a bit high to some of you, but when you think about it, you're getting your outfit from head to toe! For clothing, shoes, and accessories, I think these are amazing prices! $70 for a red carpet worthy outfit? Can’t get much better than that.

I hope you all find these websites useful, and can complete your very own “Samantha Busch Look;” I can’t wait to see what she has in store for us this season! Happy Shopping!!
