So I started reading Kayla's blog during her last wardrobe challenge, and I loved it. I also loved when she and Amy and Erica started doing this series called Open to Interpretation. I have no idea why, but I never thought of taking an outfit I saw in a catalog or a magazine and then recreating it or something like it with what I already own. This has really helped me not only stretch my closet but also push me to try some new fashiony things (without going out to spend a ton of money).
Here is the photo inspiration (I just copied it from Kayla's blog):
Sweater - Old Navy, $8
Striped Shirt - LOFT (from the event last week), $20
Pink pants - JCPenney, Juniors section (don't tell Stacey and Clinton), $10
Leather Oxfords - J.Jill, $30
Mine is pretty close to just being a copy, but I wore pink pants instead of red because my red cords had a little problem in the washing machine last weekend so they are in need of repair. I also didn't crop my pants because I had to work and it is chilly outside. Also, I didn't wear heeled oxfords because mine are dark brown and my striped shirt is black and I cannot yet mix dark brown and black. I can do cognac and black but that is about all. Anyway, use the link above to click over to Kayla's blog to see all of the interpretations. This was so fun, I hope we get to do it again!
