WIW My version of Mochi's Inspiration pic

So, I had the pieces (sort of) so this is what I did today. It looks better IRL (you'll have to trust me on that) because my tank doesn't look so darn purple. Also, my hair and scarf looked a lot better: I'd just lugged a bunch of things into the house and was in a bit of disarray.

Okay, so I don't have the cool cons or the gloves (not to mention the Hermes bag and designer scarf). But I DO have the YLF attitude!! :-)

    Attitude, for sure! A very successful translation to my eye, indeed. You look effortlessly chic!

  • ElleH replied 7 years ago

    What can I say? You Look Fab! I love red purses & I would love to see the Hermes one you speak of but then I would just drool over something I can't have.

  • siniestra replied 7 years ago

    nice :) combination

  • KathyL replied 7 years ago

    I love your interpretation! You are rocking the look and I love the red bag with the scarf. You've got the YLF attitude for sure.

  • Lyn D. replied 7 years ago

    Thank-you Suz, I thrifted a similar stripy top recently that is way too short. Now I have a way to style it, and YLF!

  • Transcona Shannon replied 7 years ago

    Fabulous Suz! You look chic, comfortable and full of attitude!

  • Suz replied 7 years ago

    Thanks, YLF!!

    I should note that my top isn't actually as short as it looks here, either! I guess it got all smushed...it's a little short and boxy but not quite to the degree it looks here! :-)

  • Mochi replied 7 years ago

    You look great, Suz. I did like the original orange bag, but red works really well here. The booties are just as cool as the Cons.

  • christy replied 7 years ago

    Great interpretation! Love it. That scarf is beautiful and I love the printed scarf with the striped shirt. The boots are perfect here too.

  • Angie replied 7 years ago

    You look great, Suz! Your KILLER attitude goes a very long way.

  • Caro in Oz replied 7 years ago

    Love it all.

  • cciele replied 7 years ago

    Great interpretation -- love how the accessories jazz up the classic jacket-stripe shirt-jeans look.

  • texstyle replied 7 years ago

    Stylish, Casual, Fun, Chic - you look great and this seems like the perfect autumn "uniform" to me.

  • Makrame replied 7 years ago

    Very cool! Love the bright hues added by the bag and scarf!

  • krishnidoux replied 7 years ago

    Wow! So stylish! The warm print scarf with the stripes: absolutely perfect. You look fab!

  • Debora replied 7 years ago

    Wow! Love your version, Suz! I especially love how you layered the tank under the Breton top. A classic, chic look with attitude!

  • Deborah replied 7 years ago

    Lady you do have "attitude" and you look fab! Funnily enough I am sporting a similar ensemble myself today :). Great minds...

  • shevia replied 7 years ago

    Great scarf on you and those boots are excellent. The rest looks terrific too of course. I love interpretation outfits!

  • Joy replied 7 years ago

    You look like you are having so much fun. The colors and mix of prints makes me smile with you.

  • Ariadne replied 7 years ago

    You nailed it! Way to work with what you've got. And every time I see those taupe booties on you I want a pair more (even though I know I probably couldn't walk in them).

  • Beth Ann replied 7 years ago

    Yeah! You're on a roll, Suz. Can't wait to see what you come up with next!

  • Kiwichik replied 7 years ago

    That's definitely an outfit with attitude - love it.

  • Mona replied 7 years ago

    Love the rich colours of your scarf. I missed the inspiration post from Mochi but you look absolutely gorgeous.

  • Nova replied 7 years ago

    I love it!

  • moira replied 7 years ago

    I am totally glomming onto this look. I have all of these elements. I will be wearing this today!

  • Jjsloane replied 7 years ago

    You totally nailed it in your way! Love it! Colorful and chic.

  • nancylee replied 7 years ago

    Like Ingunn said, you look "effortlessly chic." And that red bag really completes the look.

  • MNsara replied 7 years ago

    I missed the inspiration for this, but whatever it was, you must have done a bang-up interpretation because this is fab! I really enjoy the striped shirt in fall because it seems like I don't wear mine until spring, but the fabric is certainly heavy enough for fall. This is great, and is inspiring me . . .

  • MsMary replied 7 years ago

    Love this! I missed the inspiration post, too! Can we have a link? ETA Found it: http://www.thesartorialist.com.....-paris-15/

    Note to self: Copy this the very minute the weather gets below 90!

    I didn't read through the comments but WOW! This is one of those outfits that I hope you wear repeatedly, it looks that great. I have loved that mariniere from the beginning, and I love the scarf (from MK, right?) but that BAG! When did you pick up that tote? It's just the perfect thing to tie in the scarf. Love, love, love the blazer, jeans and boots and your tank just blends into your jeans; I didn't even notice it at first. Your slightly disheveled 'do only adds charm to your look, which is totally natural, and not at all contrived. Perfection my dear! :)
