today's holiday opulence: jacquard pants and metallic flats!
photos by the amazing Molly Stillman


     You guys, it is safe to say that I have an obsession with Anna Dello Russo......I'm seriously in awe of her style and the deeper I dig into her philosophies on fashion the more I grow to love her. So today's Copycat Lookbook is inspired by ADR herself....I've been staring at this photo since fashion week thinking of a way to recreate it...because the Copycat Lookbook series is all about putting together looks with items I already own and all.... and last week it donned on me. I don't have a green jacquard jacket and pale pink pants......BUT I do have a pale pink jacket and green jacquard pants....plus a blue button up, crazy sunnies and an awesome clutch!!!!!! PS the shopping bag I'm holding is full of some vintage goodies I picked up during this photo sesh that I can't wait to show you guys!)

I know this outfit may seem kind of cray cray but I have to be honest....its one of my favorites, ever. By channeling Anna I almost feel more powerful and free to be me, that's what fashion does to me......I walk around every day literally with my heart on my sleeve. I figured I would leave you with some of my favorite ADR quotes, because fashion should be fun and full of joy.......(PSS I REALLY enjoyed hearing about the items in your closet's that make your spouse's cringe!!!!)


"The message is having your own fashion week, You can play with low budget, but you can renovate your wardrobe like if you were front row." 

 'Wearing lots of JEWELLERY. the sound of JEWELLERY banish bad thoughts and bad ghosts."

"Color me! ACCESSORIZE me!
shock me!"

"FASHION is such stuff as
DREAMS are made on…"


And now for the accessories du jour....The Stella & Dot Liz Drop Earrings

And the Stella & Dot Chelsea Tech Wallet

  17. I HAVE THE SAME PANTS! Lol, sorry for the excitemet. Don't you love them though? I feel like there's an infinite number of combinations you can put together with these pants. Pictures don't do them justice, they're so beautiful in real life. Also, how did you do your sunnies (you said they were DIY)? You are totally channeling ADR.. I love your copy-cat series. Keep it up! I think you should let your followers recommend a look that you should then attempt to copy. Would be very challenging but fun :D

  23. LOVE LOVE LVOE it! Especially love how you reversed the look so you could do exactly what your copycat series is about-taking items that you already own & using them! You look amazing. AND I can't wait to see the vintage goodies that you picked up...you know I'm a huge fan of vintage things! :)
