  10. Spot on re-creation, and that leopard bag is beautiful.  Congratulations on being featured BRINK!  You are such a hard worker and such a beautiful person in and out - you deserve every bit of it. :)

  12. Don't blame you for wanting to re-create that outfit!  It is hot!  Love cobalt blue and neutrals worn together!  You look great in blue!!  I am so obsessed with your leopard bag!  That is one item I don't have in my closet yet!  xx

  13. Pairing your cobalt skinnies with a really *monochromatic*-neutral clothing palette + a leopard purse is soooo chic!!    You could just fit-right-WITHin your Inspiration Photo, J. ............ (i.e., from this very high-end/upscale blog  http://www.theblondesalad.com/2011/09/my-outfit-for-burberry-fashionshow.html  )............ at LONDON'S Fashion Week in September, 2011;  so maybe you yourself'll simply have to return to London again someday, too!!

    Incidentally, I can genuinely appreciate the great design of the Alexander McQueen Skull & Bee Cocktail Ring, which the person in your Inspiration Photo is wearing on HER lovely left hand--(i.e., see Photo #9 in the Above link)--however............ (although I know it's probably foolish to be creeped-out by a RING!!)............ IF I had LOFT's dreamy/romantic/feminine Pink Oval Stone Ring in my jewelry box, which you're wearing on YOUR lovely left hand............ INSTEAD of the McQueen ring in my jewelry box, I don't think that............ I'd need to  S.L.E.E.P.  W.I.T.H.  T.H.E.  L.I.G.H.T.  O.N.  at night, though, (haha)!!
