I am a Big Fat Copycat!
You know it--I LOVE the Paris catalog from Fall 2007. I love it so much that I did a blog entry about it in February. You also know that I have promised to continue posting pictures from this catalog in the future. You also may know that I am obsessed especially with page 15 of the catalog, in which the ethereal Vanessa Lorenzo is wearing a red peacoat sweater, an ivory top, a double-strand frog necklace, a red wool hat, and tan cords.
I loved this image so much that I went out and tried to replicate it the best I could. So I own most of this outfit (top was sold out when I tried to buy it, and the cords are a wee bit different). I have been walking to school so much lately that I cannot wear this. Or should I say, I will not wear this...I do not want to ruin any of these pieces. By the way, the shoes are the Dandelion print flats from last January (2008). So since I drove today, out came the outfit. I get the silliest joy in my heart when I get to wear this to school. And I always get compliments...especially for the frog necklace and the hat!
Oh, and yes, goofy me is trying to tip my hat the way Vanessa did in her shot. Try not to end up on the floor 'cause you are laughing so hard. :) (Which I totally give you permission to do--I mean, if I can make fun of me, you certainly can...)
Here I am with said shot in my hands. Rex is so cute hugging my legs. :) I may not be in Paris, but I feel like I have a little slice of heaven right here on earth!
Here is a close-up of the pieces. You will also notice that I am wearing the orange cluster ring. I wanted to give it a whirl today. :)
By the way, I do this every so often...the whole take a look from the catalog and try to recreate it thing...more to come!
