I like finding “looks” I love, than recreating them with items in my own closet. I find a picture that I like, print it out, and put them in a file on my computer, and print out the ones I really love, and put them in a binder. When I want a new look, or fun new outfit, I look through the pictures and recreate that look from items I already own, in my own closet. I make the outfit my own…and rarely do I ever wear a matching 2-piece suit. I prefer to take the jacket and pair it with something different, and take the skirt and pair it with a cardigan, and cheetah belt.
Pair jeans with a frilly blouse, blazer and chunky, funky necklace.
Grey trousers paired with a black crew-neck sweater (or v-neck sweater) white blouse, chunky pearls and fancy party shoes.
Soft sweater-jacket with sheer blouse and large metallic necklace. This also looks like it goes with a 2-piece suit, but it’s always important to break up the suits and wear with other items.
Faux fur vest or jacket, with leggings and heels. Admittedly, many of us won’t own a jacket like this, but you can find faux fur vests and jackets at TJ Maxx or at resale shops.
I love the pale pink jacket…aka dress, paired with dark tights and high boots. This is a tad shorter than I’d wear, but if you’re in your 20’s and 30’s and can pull it off, rock it on.
Print sheath dress, white trench and nude pumps. Solid black tote, with pop of color in the scarf.
Love the pop of pink with the cheetah jacket! I have a black/white faux-fur coat, which I plan on pairing with a very similar scarf.
love the white on white on white…and you can do this with black on black on black, but I prefer the look of “wow”. 🙂
Again…another animal print jacket! I’d pop it with a red scarf and red sling backs.
fancy black skirt, white blouse and high heels. The proper accessories and a dressy skirt, will ensure you don’t look like a waitress!
such a simple look to replicate. Jeans, white blouse, black flats…and pop it with a great scarf and handbag!

Another Travel Tip: After wasting numerous gallon zip-lock bags trying to protect my clothes from bottle spills…here is a much cheaper, more efficient way. Unscrew the cap, place plastic wrap over the opening, and screw the cap back on…a Much easier spill solution. I posted this on Facebook, but want to reach a broader audience, so will post it on my blog as well.
