Today’s outfit is again inspired by a page in the March 2013 issue of Marie Claire. I was not kidding when i said last week that i love the magazine and found this issue quite inspiring, In fact i may just style one more look from this issue but i’m undecided…you’ll just have to stay tuned to find out!
This Marie Claire page advertised looking luxe for less, but i managed to create the look for wayyyy less…by using what i already own! The sweater i wore is from Zara, the leatherette skirt is from Apartstyle, the mules are DKNY via Gilt.com.
The necklace is from Zara and the bracelet was a christmas gift and unfortunately i’m not sure where its from. I really love the way this outfit turned out. If you have been recently inspired by a look in a favorite magazine and were able to recreate the look, do share in the comments!
Yours in inspiration,
This week i teamed up with the talented Janese Castro, mastermind behind the online accessories store Ginger Pinks. If you take a look at some of my previous posts you’ll notice i don’t often accesorize. That is for two reasons, 1. i own a limited amount of cool accessories, 2. I’m not always sure what will look good with what. Enter Janese with her amazing talent for picking beautiful, cool jewels that work perfectly with an outfit. When she laid all the beautiful pieces she’d brought out on my dining table i felt like a kid in a candy store:
Jewels: Ginger Pinks
Here are some of my favorites up close and personal:
We had quite a good time trying on jewels before the shoot.

I dont think i would’ve ever paired such girlie items like the krystal necklace and bracelet with the chunkier and colorful bangles, but once i had them on they worked! I fell in love ❤
I feel blessed to have such talented and resourceful people in my life. You may be surprised at just how willing people are to help you look great. So next time you have a style conundrum, all it may take is a browse through your contacts and phone call.
