Wear It Now

Wear It Now

The whole “Upper East Side housewife in the Hamptons” look has never been my thing, so I have to admit, I turned my nose up a bit at Tory Burch in the past. However, her Fall/Winter 2009 collection made me do a double take and I’ve seriously reconsidered accepting that marriage proposal from a wealthy New York investment banker type.
Wait, what? Banks are failing and the stock market is in the dumps? Oh. Nevermind…

Anyway, this is a look you can recreate with minimal shopping (dang!) since you probably have most of the pieces in your closet right now (and if you don’t, they’re not hard to find):

My interpretation:

Left: BCBG cardigan, Forever21 blouse, Express skirt, vintage boots. Right: Anthropologie cardigan, Moda Internationale blouse, H&M skirt, vintage boots.

I often find that recreating runway looks forces me to combine my own pieces in ways I may not have otherwise. It sounds counterintuitive, but sometimes being a copycat can inspire creativity. It all depends on how you look at it!

    I love it… in both color combinations. Finding inspiration from the runway is a great way to mix up things you may already own. Well done m’lady!
