WIW 8/21 Golden circus elf goes to work & MNO (Annagybe copycat)

I really enjoyed Annagybe's "golden circus elf" outfit (6) and thought I'd try doing a copycat with my VC striped tube skirt. Not an exact match to the fab original, but fun inspiration nonetheless--thanks Anna! I did horizontal instead of vertical stripes, skirt instead of pants, gold sandals instead of gold booties, and gold chain necklace instead of gold ball & chain necklace. I also don't know how to do such a tidy bun so I just did a messy twist with an alligator clip. But I still liked how the outfit came out. I wore it to work and am going to a mom's night out.

The Worishofer gold sandals I bought for about $38 on sale at DNA footwear (20% off with code SUMMER20, final sale)--thanks Rae for the recommendation! They were really comfy due to the anatomic footbed and I got lots of compliments on the shoes. Ha, people loved the orthopedic granny sandals! They're supposedly very cool with the celebrity crowd:

I'm on Team Lemming Wear with my VC striped tube skirt and Spiegel jacket. I'm driving down the CPW surprisingly quickly on this jacket! How about you guys?
Thanks for commenting!

    Nice way to take inspiration and make it your own!

    It looks great, but it's hard to imagine wearing a jacket of any kind in hot, steamy August. The shoes seem too open and summery for the jacket ( seasonally confused), although it probably makes perfect sense in the Bay area.

    Gorgeous. Fably pulled together from Anna's inspiration outfit. Suited to you. Well done.

    Great way to take an inspiration outfit and make it your own, suited to your style.

    So awesome! I'm glad you like the sandals - I always get compliments, too. Blast, if I had that skirt I could have another twin day with you.

    Gorgeous !!!!!!!!!!
    Love how you have been inspired by Anna and worked her look to suit you.
    I adore her pants but don't think I'd be brave enough to wear them.....the skirt, I could do :)

    You look lovely - a great look!

  • ModeGekkie replied 7 years ago

    Just gorgeous! I agree with the rest...

    Gorgeous! Love how the jacket structures the outfit and creates a waist

    Looks great! I love how you interpreted the inspiration.

  • Lisa replied 7 years ago

    Super version of this look.  That's a really fun skirt and I am enjoying all the outfits being posted with it.

  • celia replied 7 years ago

    You adapted the copycat brilliantly to you.
    That VC skirt is a magic skirt. All of you look so good on it.

    Oooooooooo gorgeous:)

  • AviaMariah replied 7 years ago

    I saved Anna's picture for inspiration also.  I love your interpretation. 

  • deb replied 7 years ago

    Great interpretation!!

  • texstyle replied 7 years ago

    Another great outfit - love it!

  • annagybe replied 7 years ago

    Wow! I'm flattered you tried to copy me. Looks good.

  • Suz replied 7 years ago

    Great outfit, Natalie! I love it when we copy each other here...so cool! 

    It's fun...you are wearing Rae's sandals, the Lemming jacket and skirt...and your very own red specs take the place of Anna's bright lips. Brilliant!

    You're on such a creative streak.  Baby must be sleeping pretty well at night?  This is not the look of a sleep deprived busy mom!

    Love the black and white -- and the gold accents -- inspired by Anna -- are so fresh!

    I love how you too someone else's outfit for inspiration and made it your own.Love the gold shoes.
