Dup-A-Look 14

Woah, it’s October already!  Where has this year gone?  It seems like I just celebrated my birthday in June.  Wow.  Anyway, Thursday was also a bit of a challenge because it was Yom Kippur and I was celebrating with my family by spending the bulk of the day at temple.  I had a hard time finding a look on my Dup-A-Look board that would be temple friendly, but ended up finding this great look from District of Chic, who has a wonderfully relatable and versatile style.  I knew I had the makings of this look, and that it would be perfect for temple and then family dinner.  It was.

While I have a navy pencil skirt, it’s suede and I’ve never worn it, so I opted to go with a tried-and-true black one instead.  So I dusted off my Valentino wool pencil skirt (the only designer piece I own, thanks to a generous cousin who worked, once upon a time, at Neiman Marcus and got it on super-clearance) and added a subtly striped GAP buttondown under a grey cable knit sweater (also from GAP).  On my feet, I wore a pair of black suede Nine West pumps I did a little DIY magic on (don’t worry, tutorial coming soon!).  I added some bracelets and my Fossil clear and rose gold watch (to complement my shoes) and that was it!  I switched to a thrifted purse that echos the shape of the one DOC is carrying and it was a near perfect match, even with the black skirt.

While this isn’t an outfit I’ll wear regularly, this skirt is so fantastic I think I’ll be bringing it out a little more than usual.  It fits perfect and I just adore it.  The sweater, one of my favorites, seems to finally be losing it’s shape in the sleeves, which makes me sad.  This will probably be its last season.  And the shoes?  I hope to start wearing them more, even though my poor toes just weren’t used to pointy shoes any longer.  I got a ton of complements on them!

    I have been stalking this feature everyday. It must be a huge amount of work but so fun to see!

    I spent a few hours planning stuff out one night, and it proved to be the best thing I did! I’m going to post a “things I learned” post on Friday, after the last look posts 🙂

    Wait. Did you DIY the metallic cap toes on those shoes? If so, you need to post that DIY ASAP!
