I absolutely love the drama of the neck collar and the contrasting sash color. Hubby remarked, "That looks a bit much. Are you going to wear it to the office?" So yes, I admit, it's a little dressier than what I would normally wear. But I think you can always make it more casual with a cardigan. Accessorizing makes all the difference too.
Here's what it looks like on me (I, of course, lengthened the skirt from Zoe's version):
Left: Collar up for max drama (my favorite way)
Right: Collar down for more of a conservative vibe
What do you think? Does this inspired piece capture the gist of the Zoe's dress?
And an award (my first!) from the fabulous Elaine from Curls-and-Pearls. I am so incredibly flattered and don't feel at all that I'm very stylish (but I'm learning LOL) - thank you Elaine! You are so sweet!!
I'd like to pass this award on to:
- Kerry of Little Nashua - She makes the most gorgeous garments (and perfect-fitting!) and has an incredible eye for picking out items to flatter her figure.
- Cee of To Brighten My Day - Cee has impeccable taste and a flair for accessorizing / styling things to make everything look chic and polished. I would love to pick up some of that skill!
- Ping of All About Fashion Stuff - This gal NEVER looks bad! She always looks amazing and is uber-fashionable. Even when she's reviewing items that don't fit well, she still winds up gorgeous.
