From Pin to Post (Black blazer, light dress, black tights)
|Inspiration (Left) Interpretation (Right)|
I figured that I might do a recurring OOTD feature in which I take a pin that I like, and try to recreate the look with pieces from my closet.
I was trying to decide how would be the best way to go about it... take a pin of a curvy girl in a great outfit and recreate, or take a shot of a "straight" sized model and recreate that.
And here we enter into the deep dark woods of "comparison."
On one hand, no curvy girl wants to be put side-by-side with some skinny bitch (a term I use with the utmost endearment... some of my dearest friends are skinny bitches) and be measured against her. But, on the other hand, I am hoping to show that we can gain inspiration from said skinny bitches, and still work it in our curvy way. So, here goes...
Also, I should confess that I am still working on not hating photographs of myself. I think about never putting up OOTDs. but if no curvy woman ever had the balls to post a pic of herself, we'd all still be scurrying around in the shadows.
Shoes: Fredericks of Hollywood (from last year, similar here at Le Chateau)
Ring: Torrid (similar here)
Earrings: Le Chateau
Necklace: Zellers (cannot for the life of me remember the brand)
I wanted to try this look because I normally shy away from dark tights, no particular reason, I just tend to. But when I saw the pin, I liked how it looked.
If I were to try and recreate this look again, I might try shortening the skirt a bit. I also might lose the belt, but I though I might need the definition in the waist.
What do you think? Decent recreation of the pinterest pin?
