If you are anything like I am, you are constantly inspired by the images and people you see. That super stylish co-worker who always comes in to work looking so pulled together rain or shine, the latest Lucky magazine showcasing a spread on wearing bright colors together, the paparazzi snapping a pic of your favorite celebrity wearing something that you would love to own, but probably can't afford.
I have a million pictures pasted into a sketch book and tons of pictures on my computer. Images I want to hold onto for future reference or something that sparks a, "hey, I can totally wear that." So with that, I want to introduce a segment called, You Inspire Me. I take something I've seen and re-create it using what I have in my wardrobe. First up, is Ms. Model from J. Crew's November catalog.
I loved the colors of this outfit when I saw it, but when I got up close and personal with the color and skirt at the store, it just wasn't the same. I imagined a deep, rich merlot-esque kind of color and saw clay instead and let's not speak of how that skirt's paperbag waist did me no favors. I already had a sweater in my closet and then Forever 21 came to the rescue with a skirt who's color was just what I wanted. I took a few liberties with what I wore, since bare legs were not in order for yesterday's weather. How did I do?
