WIW -- MaryK's copycat challenge

Picture #1 -- Old leather coat from 1995, new distressed True Religion jeans, Edmundo Castillo spike heeled, pointy toe shoeties, Limited white shirt via TJ Maxx, J Crew neon leather belt, red bracelet from Ideeli.

I never realize how many unpaved dirt and gravel roads I have to walk on until I wear these shoes.

Picture #2 -- Inspiration. http://blog.stylesight.com/street/denim-heels

Picture #3 -- What do you think about rolling the jeans a little more? I was having fun pretending I was in a mental institution in my (still) unfinished living room. (Now I understand why women hire contractors to remodel instead of having SOs do it.)

Thanks for looking and commenting!!

    I think this is great look on you-love your leather coat:) For #3, you can def roll up jeans a bit further, may be to just above your ankle?

  • K. Period. replied 5 years ago

    You look stunning! I think the jeans look works on you at that length, but I think it would also look great rolled up just a little more.

    I absolutely love this whole outfit on you! That coat is so gorgeous on you! The whole outfit is BETTER than the model you were using as inspiration....and I love the scenery!

    Great copy cat Denise. #1 looks great. That leather coat is fab. And I do like the jeans rolled in #3. Your gorgeous hair lends itself to this very cool laid back look too.
    And I think I look less contrived than the girl in your inspiration shot - that's a good thing:)

    I like the coat in #1 and the roll in #3. Great copycat. I do all my own painting but there are always awkward periods where it is not finished.

    Ooooh, you look amazing! I love this copycat better than the original. You look uber chic. Well done :) The neon belt is brilliant!

  • Angie replied 5 years ago

    One roll down in #3? Love the shirt with the jeans and belt.

    #1 is SCD! (Super Cool Denise).

  • JennyAnne replied 5 years ago

    Really, really great! I love the simple pieces, elevated to total chicness with the rolled hem, yellow belt, and buttoned-up shirt.

  • clearlyclaire replied 5 years ago

    I think you throw off a different vibe than your inspiration, but I like yours better!

    Are you pretending to be in a mental institution in pic three or threatening SO that you are headed for one if he doesn't finish your house?!!? You do look pretty cool, whatever the case!

  • Transcona Shannon replied 5 years ago

    Denise - you are so uber cool, you don't even know it!

  • Mo replied 5 years ago

    Awesome! And I hear you on the unpaved terrain - one reason I recently got 1" heeled boots to wear with my jeans.

  • Heather replied 5 years ago

    Denise, you are a true inspiration.

  • rae replied 5 years ago

    Your version is so much more interesting, Denise! That coat is TDF. I do think the extra roll looks that much better, but both versions are yummers - I am happy to see more distressed denim on YLF!

  • shevia replied 5 years ago

    The neon belt is what makes your version fly above the inspiration picture for me. You look so tall in your pictures - am I crazy or have you said you aren't so tall at all? Anyway, Angie said one roll down in 3 but going up might work too.

    You are so awesome! Love your look so much more than the inspiration picture.

  • christieanne replied 5 years ago

    You are most def. cooler than the inspiration post. Neon belt is happy color.

  • catgirl replied 5 years ago

    You are going to be MY inspiration!

  • Kirti replied 5 years ago

    I like yours better than the inspiration too :-)

  • Kiwichik replied 5 years ago

    Awesome leather coat & scary cool mental institute patient - watch out girl interrupted.

  • Lisa replied 5 years ago

    What a great coat! And a lovely classic look with a twist from the bright color belt.

  • Jonesy replied 5 years ago

    I love these looks! You really add a level of chicness to the staid button down, I've gotta say. I really like the rolled jeans.
