WIW -- Blogger Copycat (loose interpretation)

Thank you MaryK for starting this challenge. Here's my contribution.

Don't know the blogger's name, I got this off of Angie's Pinterest Board. I am going to get a lot of mileage out of this plaid and stripes concept, it's great fun!

    Neat! I like how instead of a neutral outfit and bright shoe, you did bright outfit with neutral shoe.

  • Raisin replied 7 years ago

    Very interesting outfit! Something I wouldn't have the nerve to try, but it looks so right!

  • TraceyLiz65 replied 7 years ago

    I love that you chose an outfit that you now say inspired you and you will get a lot of mileage out of.... A huge benefit to this challenge,....

    It's like Pee-Wee Herman goes punk. Or was it Urkel. Love it anyways. Now I wish I had plaid pants.

  • replied 7 years ago

    I love that on you!

  • JR replied 7 years ago

    You are so much braver than I am. But that is not news... This pushes past my comfort zone when it comes to pattern-mixing, which is not to say you shouldn't do it.

  • CocoLion replied 7 years ago

    Thanks for the comments ladies. If you can think of ways to improve this look, let me know! (Smaller stripes, navy stripes, dark shoes, more fitted pants?)

    I sized up on these pants, I purposely wanted baggy pants, but am now thinking a smaller size might have been better. Oh well. They are super comfortable!

  • Suz replied 7 years ago

    Love this on you, Denise! The pants are sensational. And I would never have thought to pair them with stripes, but wow, it works!

  • Sveta replied 7 years ago

    I think it is a super outfit, Denise. Plaid trousers are so much fun, aren't they? You did make this copycat your own!

  • Diana replied 7 years ago

    Love the plaid and stripes combo! I really want some plaid pants.

  • Transcona Shannon replied 7 years ago

    Pattern mixing fabulocity!!! LOVE those plaid pants on you - I wouldn't change the size Denise.

  • Carole replied 7 years ago

    Wow, you look fantastic, what a fun outfit! You have a unique and amazing style I love seeing, thanks for sharing.

  • soobee replied 7 years ago

    Great interpretation of this look, you really make this your own :) Love the pants, love this challenge!

  • shevia replied 7 years ago

    The plaid pants are fantastic and I love how the sharp shoulders work with this outfit. Great interpretation!

  • MsMary replied 7 years ago

    I love it!

    Now all you need are some Valentino pumps! :)

  • Parsley replied 7 years ago

    Fun and adventurous!
    I do love those plaid pants.

    The blogger is Andy Torres, from stylescrapbook.com , btw.

  • Joy replied 7 years ago

    I love this too and wouldn't change a thing. Smaller stripes just wouldn't be as fun. You might see what black and white stripes look like with this for something different and slightly more conservative. Have you tried a floral with the plaid pants yet?

  • Deborah replied 7 years ago

    Denise I know we all agree we kind over use this word, but this look IS 'cool'. I love the pattern mix and now I want a pair of plaid pants... they are officially on my list for next Autumn. Love the clutch and the neutral booties. Brilliant!

  • replied 7 years ago

    I love your version Denise! Glad you sized up on the pants; don't second guess yourself.

  • rae replied 7 years ago

    Yours is so much better! I feel the punk spirit washing off this photo. The baggy size of the pants is *perfect*. It would look too Hot Topic 2002 with tight pants.

  • Aida replied 7 years ago

    Oh Denise, I looooove your version! The inspiration is a bit more preppy feeling, yours feels more punk rock. YES! I think the pants are perfect, though I don't mind tighter plaid pants (mine are tighter). That JACKET is killing me though, wow it's so very awesome. And now I want to copy your look!

  • Asingh replied 7 years ago

    Great look, and I really like how you've taken inspiration from that photo and transformed it to another colour palette!

  • goldenpig replied 7 years ago

    Neat! You look like a cool punk rock Debbie Harry! Fearless pattern mixing! Love those red plaid pants!

  • Marley replied 7 years ago

    OK - I just got to try to find some clothing items in my closet to copy this look. I LOVE your interpretation of it Denise! Is the jacket camo? So cool!

  • JenA replied 7 years ago

    I love this "urban grunge" look. I like both the pattern and style of the pants. They work really well with the striped shirt, both in cut & color. I know that I am now gushing, but that jacket is awesome too. I think the blogger's look was "soft" and i like how you made your look edgier (through the jacket and unique color combo). Your style is inspirational -- especially how you pair the unexpected.

  • Ingunn replied 7 years ago

    Urban chic! I admire how you put this together so well. What a fabulous outfit this is on you! I think the size of the pants looks quite right.

  • Lisa replied 7 years ago

    I think this is the most clever pattern mix I've seen yet. I just adore the plaid trousers and the stripes really tie in the look because the color coordinates so well. Isn't it amazing how versatile striped tops are?

  • JulieJohn replied 7 years ago

    Bold and it works great! You took the look and made it yours so nicely. Ro-coco + copycat = CocoLion!

  • Zapotee replied 7 years ago

    Ah man, she is wearing those Valentino pumps....
    I think your interpretation is way cooler, by the way.

  • Freckles replied 7 years ago

    I find that the inspiration photo looks like she got dressed in the dark while your interpretation looks inspired and au courant.
