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,
I swear i have the best friends ever! I was recently invited by a good friend of mine to attend an event hosted by Citibank and House Beautiful where interior designers had the chance to decorate empty apartments in a newly constructed building. As guests, we were able to explore the apartments and get up close and personal with the beautiful items used, while snacking on some delish drinks and appetizers created by mixologists and chefs specifically for this event. All of the apartments looked like scenes for an upcoming issue of House Beautiful, which i think was the idea. It was truly inspiring the see all that good design in person. But the benefits of attending this event don’t end there…no siree. When we got our coats from the coat check an extremely heavy goodie bag was handed over with them that contained none else but the March issue of one of my favorite fashion magazines, Marie Claire. It was the treasure trove of inspiration i expected it to be. Today’s inspiration comes from their 101 Ideas column which was chock full of ideas for wearing Spring trends. Not surprisingly, i was drawn to all the knit items on this page…seeing as i love to crochet and all, and also not surprising is that i had the perfect knit top to rock for the shoot.
