OOTD- Can I Borrow That, Diane?

Today's post is brought to you by Diane. Diane Kruger, that is. She of the fabulous style, Chanel connections and a boyfriend that I spent my teen years watching on tv. I was completely enamored with an outfit of hers that I saw quite some time ago:

It was absolutely perfect to me with the fun, colorful tweed, the bright sweater, and that adorable hat. I mean, seriously, it's fantastic! I bought my sweater over the summer and I was beyond thrilled to spot a tweed skirt at the outlet that was perfectly priced and practically a twin to hers. And then the weather got way too hot to wear anything sweater related, so my plan to imitate her got put to the wayside. With my new bag arriving this week and the hint of fall in the air, I joyfully decided to put this outfit on yesterday. I mean, can you blame me after waiting over 2 months? Now if you don't mind, I'm going to see what other outfits I can "borrow" from her. ;)

Was there ever a celebrity outfit that you absolutely loved and wanted to create? Tell me who and what outfit!!

"Tippi" sweater in bright dahlia- J. Crew (available here)
Tweed skirt- J. Crew outlet
Brown belt- thrifted
Cap-toe ballet flats- Delman (via Gilt)

    So cute........this is my favorite type of look (classic and chic)!

  4. You NAILED IT! Love this look.
    To help in your search for faux fur really should check out 3 is annie sez where I got mine..they had some great ones that were all around 140 and under. I also googled Damselle (which is the brand that I bought from Annie Sez) and it came up as being sold at Nordstroms...and they were around 98 dollars....the touch and feel is really great on this Damselle brand....and last I saw a really great one at Ann Taylor BUT I think it was pricey...BUT WAIT they are having a 40 percent off of everything it would probably be aroudn the same as the others....hope that helps! Go get your faux fur vest girl!!!!

  5. Oh that sweater colour is stunning on you , I don't like pink at all but when it veers to that fuchsia tone, I suddenly love it.

  6. very nice recreation of dianes outfit.
    love the bright dahlia is the fit on the tippi sweater?

  7. Thanks Ina!! If it wasn't overkill, I would buy everything that comes in bright dahlia.

    I bought my regular size and find that it is a bit roomy. You might be able to size down.

  8. Thank you, Tabitha!
    I wasn't a pink girl when I was younger, but I love it now. When it comes to fuchsia, I can't resist it.

  9. Pearls definitely help to class up an outfit. :)

  10. Thanks, NF!!
    You can't go wrong with classic and chic!!

  11. Thanks Carly!!
    I will definitely check out your recommendations.
