Whoo hoo! Another Bloggers Do It Better challenge and this time I feel a whole lot better about taking on the challenge. This time we’re raiding our boyfriend’s/husband’s/brother’s closets to re-create our version of the preppy trend. A few pieces we had to incorporate a tie, a vest, and/or a blazer. All week I’ve been racking my brain trying to figure out what to wear! I’ve never been the preppy kinda girl. I don’t even own a blazer (Gasp! OMG! I know!) Then as I was laying in bed watching Top Model Wednesday night and it hit me! A fashion epiphany!
The whole outfit came together around my husband’s tie. I love this tie! The colors are so posh and elegant and my husband looks so awesome in it! I also
stole borrowed one of his button-down white shirts which I was shocked fit so perfectly. His blazer though was a big a too big so I couldn’t use it. But I did have a gray vest and the pencil skirt was given, because I’m always rocking pants. Now the shoes are the highest pair I own (around 4 inches) and I’ve had this shoes for years! I bought them at an outlet shoe store in Seacaucus, NJ and they are one of my favorite pair of shoes. Only problem – I can only last maybe an hour or so in them! I’ve only worn them twice and both were sit down dinners! So I had to rock them – they rarely come out of my closet!
Ya’ll, after chatting with my girl Krystle on Twitter, I just couldn’t resist the Fedora!
