Color Swap

I loved the brown, white, hot pink, and orange color pairing of this DSquared2 outfit from their Resort 2012 collection. I couldn't duplicate the look exactly, but came up with a more casual version by swapping the colors around a bit. No orange shoes? Orange necklace to the rescue. No pink skirt? A pink tee will do. White shorts and an olive/brown cardigan finished off my look.

Are you a fan of using runway looks as inspirations?
necklaces: Amrita Singh Nello (sold here); Forever 21 gypsy (sold here)
tee: American Eagle deep v-neck (sold here; similar; similar)
scarf ring as ring: Talbots - thanks to Elle (similar)
clutch: H&M snake-embossed envelope (may still be in stores; similar)
belt: Forever 21 braided (similar)
shorts: American Eagle washed classic (this season's version sold here)

  3. Oh I love your interpretation, Cee. The darker brown/olive color I think works better with pink/white combo. I have never done a runway inspired outfit before. Maybe I should give it a shot. Sounds like so much fun.

  14. Gorgeous!! I love your interpretation of this look!

    Remember that H&M necklace that looked like the J. Crew Bubble Necklace? They had a reddish-orange version in H&M today (previously only had turquoise) if you're interested :)

  15. Great inspiration! I love your version of the look :) The necklaces are great layered too, would have never thought about that!

  16. Uh...awesome!! This is such a pretty combo!!

    I saw your clutch at H&M on Friday and thought of you! <3

    I have a bunch of tear out pictures from magazines for inspiration, but they are not readily available to gawk at! So defeats the purpose. Will be fixing that!

  17. I would have never thought of this color combo...I must admit, I may flip through a magazine or see something on TV that I like but I am just too lazy to recreate....I need to fix that.

  23. I love what you do in your own version. This color combo is very pretty. I wore something very very similar on Sunday but with a different set of colors. You look tres chic, as always. Can't wait to see you in Fall clothes.

    Thanks Cee for your flattering compliment on the photo, a photographer will smile from ear to ear..hehe.

  24. Cee, you have inspired me to pay more attention to how people dress. Can you believe that I would flip through magazine images and not note about the fashion inspirations at all? Urghhh!!! *shame*

    your interpretation is beautiful!

  30. I <3 how well you put the pink tee with other colors. I would've never thought to match it the way you did in this post. You look fabulous!

  31. Thanks everyone :)

    @purses and puppies - Haha, believe me, I tried!

    @questforfashionsense.com - Yes, please wear an outfit with your orange shoes! I bet they make such a statement.

    @SewPetiteGal - I saw the red necklace too! I considered buying it but felt the red color was too close to coral (which I already own). H&M needs to come out with one in white, or black, or any color that I don't already own :D

    @Michelle - I bet you've got some gems in those magazine tear-outs. I used to do that too, but I don't remember where I put my stash. If I ever find it, I'll have to make sure I find time to scan them all in.

    @kileen - Yup, bloggers are slowly becoming the top inspiration for me as well. Too many good ideas out there!

    @Sunshine - Haha, I used to browse through magazines lightning fast, wondering why there was so little content. Until I realized a lot of the ads were so beautiful, both in photography and styling, that now I'm slow as a turtle when I read magazines :)

    @kimchi girl - Girl, you read my mind. Like white? And I have a black pencil skirt that's calling my name too :)

  33. I don't usually use runway looks...I use blogger looks! :) I never would have thought of wearing extra necklaces with the nello b/c I thought it was such a big statement necklace already! I'm so gonna copy...lol...maybe you'll see it on my blog in a few months! :P

    I love the colour combo of your outfit too!
