WWD: Score, A Direct Hit*

This outfit is a blatant ripoff of an outfit I saw in InStyle magazine. The January 2010 issue had an article called 28 amazing outfits that were ensembles comprised of components used repeatedly in a 28 day span. I tore the pages out then and still refer to them because they were SOOOOO great.This is a direct interpretation of one they showed (shirt dress under military jacket with sequin tank, black tights, booties, etc. etc.)...

Sadly, I could not find the article online to include photos, and tried to scan the tattered pages at work to no avail.

Just trust - it was EXACTLY like this.

I was beyond excited, though, when, while looking, I found online a THIRTY days of amazing outfits from more recently. Don't worry - I'll share some of my favey crocketts later in the week.



Dress: Loft, via Goodwill
Jacket: Old Navy
Sequin Tank: The Limited
Tights: Target
Boots: eBay
Necklace: Charming Charlie's
Ring: Fox House
