Today's Everyday Fashion: Guest Post



























This is a guest post while J is away on vacation. Check out Ty's blog, Words and Wardrobes!

I was dying over this $325 DVF shirt dress last fall (left) but because it's out of my budget, I re-created the look for only $20 ($5 for the skirt and $15 for the shirt). I accessorized with shoes ($30), a vintage bag ($2), earrings ($1), a chunky wooden bracelet ($10), and a ring ($4)!

Inspiration photo: DVF
Skirt: Goodwill
Top: Warchild Vintage via Etsy
Shoes: Urban Original
Handbag: Vintage
Ring: Forever 21
Bracelet: Mall accessories store
Earrings: Gold Beauty Supply
Aviators: Payless

  14. Ty, this is a beautiful re-creation!  You pull the print-on-print look off brilliantly and I actually like your skirt better than the skirt part of the DVF dress!!!  great vintage clutch bag too :)

  15. Ty, you look absolutely incredible.  You nailed the DVF outfit recreation.  It's so close that I thought it was the DVF dress.  I love the entire look.  You go girl.  I'm inspired to attempt to mix prints!

  22. LOVE this look! I doubt I could ever pull it off, but it looks awesome on you. And like another person that commented below, I too read about your "secret" and I am completely in the same boat. It provides some level of comfort that there are other women out there like me. :-) You go girl!

  26. WOW this is a great interpretation of this lovely DVF 2-tiered dress. I love it, this girl did a great job interpreting the look and at a phenomenal price under 70$. I see the vintage retro look behind this but I also see how it is modern, elegant and very much perfect for 2011 with the full floral, A-Line skirt and the gorgeous heels. I love the girl's hair, too.
