Ad Inspired

I've seen an advertisement for Lycra in a few of my Fall fashion magazines this month, and every time I come across this image I stop and stare for a good 4 minutes:



I love this look - it's tailored yet feminine and my perfect definition of casual. So cute. Exactly what I'd like to wear. So I pulled together a few pieces in plus sizes to replicate it.



The jacket I found has a black foundation instead of blue. So I also chose jeans that lean more towards black than the vintage-blue in the picture. It's not exactly the same, but the overall feel is there.

  4. I tried on the jacket at LB Friday night and it's absolutely gorgeous.

    The only prob was I thought the arms were way too long. But I'm only 5'3" so on some of the taller girls it will be beautiful.

  8. I am thinking of wearing it with jeans, black trousers, a pencil skirt, and I bought the black cowl-neck "Mad Men" inspired dress it looks gorgeous together.

    I have to go to a trade show in three weeks - six days, so I am putting together a whole mix-and-match wardrobe that I can fit into my carry-on. Checked luggage is no fun at Atlanta-Hartsfeld airport.

  9. I hate checking luggage anywhere - mix and matching is a must when travelling!
