WWD: Imitation

This ensemble, from the lovely Blair at Atlantic Pacific, was hands down one of my favorites in many a moon, so I decided to recreate it, using way cheaper alternatives. Duh.


Excuse me while I indulge in a slice of humble pie, but I think I just blew my own mind.
Granted, my jacket isn't QUITE as cool and motorcycley as Mz. B's, but it's a decent alternative.

Can someone tell me why my hurr in the photo above looks like I only curled one half of it? I can assure you, I curled it all.


Yup, still loving the hot pink lip, even for fall.
I know I said yesterday's outfit was my new fave, but this one just knocked that one outta first place. I may wear it when I go out with this lady tomorrow night to the Kate Spade opening and dinner, where we hope to meet up with this lady (please oh please oh pleeeeeze). Don't hate me because I'm lucky.

Jacket: Newport News
Chambray shirt: Clearance, JC Penny
Plaid shirt: Target men's section
Jeans: F21
Shoes: Vince Camuto
Necklaces: Vintage, F21
Earrings: Gift
Bracelets: Old Navy

Merci!
Shan

No, no humbleness required when you look this good, another super cool outfit. I am obsessed with denim/ Chambray shirts lately, but I am very specific about the style: Classic, light wash, two pockets at bust level, etc. after seeing the price on J.Crew ones ($90) I decided to get it from China on Ebay, just forgot the sizes are super small so now I don't fit in it :(
JC Penny is my next stop. Yours looks super cute.
