It is Inspiration Monday again where Megan and Nora over at Two Birds Boutique circulate an inspiring look for participants to recreate or take inspiration from. This week it is Gwen Stefani's look which is up for imitation.
Again, I have to post a day early as I just cannot wear this outfit to work.
- Plaid shirt: Marks and Spencer
- Jeans: Matalan
- White T-shirt: Topshop
- Silver wedges: Dorothy Perkins
- Sunnies: Primark
After last week's Diane Kruger look this felt far easier. At first glance I felt the look was very casual and even when I picked my items to create it I was convinced it would appear like a down day outfit. However, once it was put together it felt a lot more glam than I was expecting. I love surprises like that. Maybe I should have taken the challenge a step further and tried to incorporate this in to a work appropriate look.
I don't wear these shoes very often as they aren't particularly comfortable but I think they are definitely worth wearing in. These shoes are appropriate for an inspiration challenge as were purchased after I was inspired by another. Do you remember the Sex and the City episode, A Women's Right to Shoes when Carrie's Manolo Blahnik oval d’Orsay heels were stolen during a baby shower and the hostess refused to replace them arguing, outrageously, that they were “just” shoes. I had fantasies about those shoes... I still do. What I loved about those shoes, apart from their sheer fabulousness, was how Carrie styled them with a party outfit and then with a casual look of green khakis once they were replaced. I felt I was channeling a bit of Carrie Bradshaw today which always makes for a good day.
