daily duds: all tied up

I just wasn't feeling it this morning. I feel kind of blah today, which translated to my outfit. I can't say that I put much effort into today's ensemble, which is unfortunate because I was really excited about wearing the skirt and the shirt.

I mentioned this skirt in yesterday's haul post. I think it's adorable--and reminds me a bit of Halloween.

My top was inspired by this look from Louis Vuitton's fall 2009 runway.

I took a long-sleeved black tee from Old Navy and a super-long scarf from Forever 21 to make this:

This was actually my second attempt at making this shirt. The first time I tried, the holes ended up too big and in all wrong places. This time, I poked holes instead of cutting them and was more strategic about where I placed them. Next time I plan to switch the cream scarf for a leopard-print one. Rawr!

I added a cream-colored clutch (it was a shoulder bag, but I cut the strap off) and black heels.

  1. Loved your inspiration and how you translated it into your outfit. Looks great. I wouldn't have thought that skit looked like Halloween until you said something about it!

  2. Just saw your DIY post on Glamour and thought it was amazing! Thanks so much for sharing. I am definitely going to try this.
