Laid-Back Bombshell

This outfit was inspired by an old Lucky How-To: Laid-Back Bombshell. I chose to copy the look on the right. According to Lucky, the ingredients are: “a solid wrap sweater over a printed blouse with a below-the-knee pencil skirt and peep-toe heels.” I adapted the requirements to what I had in my closet: a printed sweater instead of a printed blouse and a button-front cardigan instead of a wrap sweater.

I love this look! It's so chic! I should definitely put that formula into my own design repertoire.

Zeynep said...

Errr... style repertoire, not design. Heh heh.

Very bombshell-y, especially with the leopard print cardigan and sassy peep-toes.

I am so in love with those shoes. And I've got to keep a look out for a great animal print top.

Everytime you wear this purse I am so envious! I love it! Such an interesting piece. It looks vintage (but I think it's not??).
