Happy Friday Ladies!
The weekend couldn’t come fast enough and mine proves to be very busy! I just wish it included shopping! LOL. I haven’t bought any new clothing practically all summer and it’s killing me! I’m proud of myself that I’m saving my money for some personal endeavors I have going on and I’m putting my recently acquired remixing skills to work. But I really miss shopping and getting some new goodies in my closet! My shoe wish list is already a mile long and there are new trends I want to incorporate into my style.
So for now all I can do is look around and get super inspired (and keep adding to my list!) Here are just a few looks that I’m not only totally swooning over, but I think I can really wear. Granted, I don’t have a Gucci budget, but with a little creativity (and patience) I can recreate them quite easily!
I came across this Gucci Ready-to-wear ensemble when I was doing research for another writing project a few weeks ago and it hasn’t left my fashion brain since! I’m a sucker for wide leg trousers! They are very flattering with these curves I have and it’s something I could wear to work. I can definitely find a short sleeve version of the jacket and I love the thin belt. Though the trench is out of the question (too flippin hot out here) the hat is a must! It’s fab!
Ever since I saw this top in person, I’ve been crazy about it! Not only can you wear it like the photo above, it also makes a really cool hoodie too! I have no problem finding a cheaper version of the capri pants and aviators (which totally rock!) however, I will pull all my pennies together and get this from Michael Kors. It’s destiny I tell you!
You guys can’t tell me these jumpsuit isn’t fly! I can honestly see myself rocking this on an evening out, belt, peep-toes and all! Rompers may be an iffy thing for me given my body proportions, but jumpsuits – especially with my favorite wide-leg pants – yes please!
I admit that I haven’t gotten into the show Mad Men, but when I do watch it from time to time, I’m looking at the clothes more than anything else. I was just excited as the die hard fan when I found out Banana Republic was launching this collection. This outfit by far is my favorite! That leapord print jacket is FIERCE! I might have to save my pennies for that too! Otherwise, finding a cute little white dress is super easy and I already have a similar belt.
Forget the fact that the LV bag she’s holding is amazing, the dress that she’s wearing talks to my newly found vintage heart. I love how simple and flattering the cut is, with the white lines and (once again!) a cute belt. The shoes and those cat-eye sunnies take it to a whole other level and I’m in love! I will scouring everywhere to find a dress similar to this one!
What keeps you fashionably inspired? What are some things you have to get into your closet…like asap?
