Hello ladies and welcome to my first participation post in the new 'Inspiration Monday' group which has been set up by Two Birds. Each week we will be given a photo of a celebrity and we will use that to inspire an outfit, then we shall share all our outfits on Two Birds Blog. It's a little like the Everybody Everywear idea but with a specific inspiration not item.
Anyway rambling now. I am not sure I will be able to participate every monday but I will try. I actually really enjoyed this challenge it made me look at my wardrobe a little differently and to pair items I wouldn't usually have thought of putting together, so I look forward to more of these challenges.
This weeks picture was of Alexa Chung. I quickly realised I don't own anything that is that similar to what she is wearing, so I decided to take key elements and general style idea from it.
- Graphic print tee
- Dark cardigan
- Loose patterned skirt
- Brown leather bag
- Black tied belt
- Round toed black shoes
- Beaded Necklace
And it actually inspired 2 outfits so here is number 1
T-shirt: Random shop in Canada
Necklace: Made by me
Belt (actually a scarf): No idea where from
And here is number 2
Top: Tiger Bay Brawlers Official Merchandise
All other items same as above
First so you think I was successful at capturing the essence of Alexa Chung's outfit? And secondly which outfit do you think is better? I know my colour scheme is very different to hers, but the general shape and style of the pieces is there, I think.
Anyway I have had one flipping hellish few days so I am lucky to be getting this post in at all. Jon's bike got stolen from work sometime in the last 3 days and he is so upset about it, and worse still it looks like it was a member of staff as it was in a key code locked area. I spent all night going through CCTV in the building and it didn't show up so has to have been taken out our back loading door which only staff have access too. So annoyed! And its a really expensive specialised Downhill Bike. He was actually in the process of selling it so he could buy a Nikon d7000 which would allow him to go semi pro with his photography, so that plan is totally ruined at the moment. Anyway less of the bad stuff.
Hope to get back to regular posting soon but just been so busy with work, it's impossible.
