Iconic

 

Skirt, Blazer & Tights: J. Crew / Shoes: ALDO / Headbands: ASOS & J. Crew / Purse: Le Chateau / Sunnies: D&G (borrow from Kate) / Watch: Guess / Blouse: H&M

This week, for FASHION Canada Style Panel, we we asked to take a cue from someone who serves as a figure of iconic style for us & put together our  best "tribute look". I went with someone fictional, but none the less of great satorial inspiration to me: Blair Waldorf (exhibit a / exhibit b). I loved absolutely everything about her pretty upper east side get ups season after season (as well as her hilarious facial quips, which I have had more than 1 person compare to mine - uh oh, not super sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing, you guys). My best take incorporated my tweed suit by J. Crew & some feminine accessories. The skirt portion of this desperately needs to be altered, but it made do for the task at hand. 

Sidenote! The last time I sported this headband combination was for a FASHION Canada related assignment as well - total serendipity. 

Who would be your pick?

This is a fantastic homage to her character!! I felt like her wardrobe choices could have easily crossed into frumpy territory but never did due to her personality and a few artfully placed youthful details! Nicely done :)
