21 Day Challenge, Day 14: Copy That!

Day 14 of the 21 Day Challenge brought copycatting.

When I did this the first time, I copied a look of Gwen Stefani’s that I loved (and still do).

While I had a ton of looks saved on my Dup-A-Look board, I wanted to do something that was more “my own twist” instead of just “copy exactly”.  So that’s what I decided to do.  I wanted to remix that polka-dot dress I chose on Day 1, so I looked for outfits that would work with that.  I found this look on Pinterest, and after some searching found the original at Sincerely Jules, and it was perfect!

Check out the look.

21 Day Challenge, Day 14

I wore my black and white polkadotted dress under a grey oversized sweater.  I added my skully scarf and a horn necklace, just like Julie did, and wore sheer black tights, black OTK socks (ok, ok, they were actually legwarmers pulled up a little higher), and my brown boots.  I don’t own a white bag, so I just used my black one that I’ve been using.  I borrowed a window full of plants for the pic, because, well, why not?  I wasn’t able to get outside during daylight hours, so snapped this quick on a break.

I liked this look, and am not sure it’s something I’d have put together on my own.  It worked out, despite it being a bulkier piece over an A-line.  It was a pretty easy, work-friendly look that I felt confident and comfortable in.  I liked my take on it, and also liked that I didn’t have to feel pushed to duplicate it exactly, like I tend to do with my Dup-A-Look series.

So that’s day 14 of this round of the 21 Day Challenge.

    I really like this outfit! The sweater works perfectly with that dress. I think a shorter or lighter sweater wouldn’t go as well because the skirt would poof out too much.

      I think you’re right, and I’d end up looking boxy and wider than I am (especially in the waist).
