Sweat the Details

27 Mar

Grey Sweater + Leather Skirt - front edited

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!

Grey Sweatshirt and Leather Skirt

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 loved working on the last two DIY posts, and i’m looking forward to posting more DIY on here, but working on today’s outfit post just felt like a homecoming. So without further ado…today’s outfit post.

I’ve been noticing a lot fashionistas rocking oversized sweaters. All of the inspiration photos below are from Pinterest.

They look so cute and comfy and i wanted one of my very one, so I kept my eyes peeled for one to buy that wouldn’t be too expensive. Well recently i took a trip to a discount store near my job called Lot Less and what should i find but the most amazing oversized gold sweater by Anne Klein. The original price tag on the Anne Klein online store is $119 and i bought it for a whopping $14.99, not bad huh? I love how versatile it is, i’ll be able to wear it more casually during the day say with some jeans and flats or by night the way i’ve styled it for the post. The leggings are from Zara (similar) and the booties are Calvin Klein…two Kleins in one outfit!

Quintessentially British

9 Jan

I’m not gonna lie to you guys, the past couple of shoots have tested my cold tolerance since i’ve chosen outfits that were not exactly covering my limbs. For this outfit i set out in search for something more appropriate for shooting outdoors in cold weather. An internet search for winter 2012 trends led me to this Glamour Magazine UK article. They call the look Quintessentially British and say this about how to put this look together:

Sturdy leather boots, Fair Isle knits, the classic flat camp, tweeds, heavy-duty knitwear and colours that channel British heritage (royal blue, pillar box red).

And here is the outfit they chose to represent the look

So i thought to myself, i could totally pull this off! I have a “pillar box red” t-shirt  I could wear, and a pair of pants that i recently bought at Zara (they’re 50% off!) that i thought would work great. Add to that my Sharagano Atelier plaid blazer, benetton tweed coat and most definitely sturdy Ink leather boots and we’ve got something. While doing the shoot i even got inspired to style it two ways, one styled more similarly to the inspiration outfit and one with my jacket buttoned up. Which is your favorite?

I tend to take the pictures for my blog posts on the weekends so i can be sure to catch the day light, which in my opinion is the perfect picture taking light. Unfortunately the Sunday i took these pictures it was dark and rainy all day long. At 2pm it looked like it might have been 5pm. I wasn’t sure how the rain and gloom would affect the look of the pictures, but I’m really glad i didn’t let that stop me from doing the shoot. I really love the effect that the rain drops gave some of the pictures and it turns out that with a little help from the flash the pictures didn’t turn out too dark afterall. What is your favorite time of day for picture taking?
