Inspired again

I was looking through the Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2010 collection and became completely smitten with this look.  I would never have thought to pair animal print with a polka dots, but this just works.


I tried to putting together an inspired look, but failed miserably.  I have no business wearing a skirt this tight and short and a little embarrassed for posting this.  I have no idea how this skirt even crept into my closet.  It was possibly an impulse buy or "I-have-no-time-to-try-this-on-but it-looks-like-it-fits" purchase.  This outfit proves that I totally have a Food Baby and need to get back to the gym fast.  I'll be on the hunt for a perfect polka dot skirt that is a few extra miles longer, so I can create the above look with two thumbs up. :)

{thrifted shirt | F21 tube skirt | Jeffrey Campbell "Charli-C" clogs}

Fun tidbit:  The last time I did an inspired D&G look, it was success.

Love, S

You are just the cutest EVER. I don't 100% dig this look anyway! Maybe for the runway, but not everyday?

your curves are to-die-for! I think this outfit works well on you :) The tightness of the skirt is balanced out by the looseness of the shirt. And the cognac clogs make your legs look looooongggggeeerrr :) You need to give yourself more credit for this outfit!
