Petite Fashion Challenge #15, courtesy of Long Live Classy, asked readers to recreate an outfit from Pinterest a closely as possible. I have to admit that this was a hard one. First I had to find a pin that I liked AND it had to work with what I had in my closet! And because there are so many fashion/style pinners out there, things that are available one day just get lost the next. I think I spent a good while looking for The Perfect Pin. The one I finally chose, courtesy of vogue.es (Spanish Vogue) and from Lauren Indivik’s Pinterest account looked easy enough to style:
- Dress: Banana Repubic, size 00P (circa 2009)
- Shoes: Stuart Weitzman, size 4 1/2
- Pin: Bought in Hong Kong, December 2011
- Clutch: 442 McAdam
- Sunglasses: Fendi – bought at an outlet mall in Florida
The dress I’m wearing is an old one I got from Banana Republic back in 2009. I believe Jean has this dress as well. My shoes are a more recent purchase – pre-ordered from a Stuart Weitzman boutique back in the winter for the spring/summer season and picked up around early March. Of course, I’m going to add a bit of my own touch to the challenge, so unlike the girl in the picture, I’m smiling (something I thought she should be doing). I’m not wearing a floral bracelet nor am I wearing dark nail polish. In fact, I’m wearing NO polish and just my silver chain bracelet. After graduating from a high school with a strict uniform/dress code more than a decade ago, I still can’t bring myself to join the so-called Arm Party or nail art crowd. You can take the girl out of BSS (Bishop Strachan School), but you can’t take the BSS out of the girl, I guess.
