In With the Old

I was watching an old rerun of What I Like About You a few months back. Typically what stands out with these type of shows is the fashion at the time. Or gigantic cell phones. During this one particular episode, I kept noticing Amanda Bynes wearing a ballet wrapped-style sweater with a cute skirt. And so that's where I drew inspiration from for today's outfit. Whoever said fashion is cyclical is so right.
sunglasses: Old Navy (similar)
lips: Maybelline Color Sensational Lipcolor in coral crush (sold here)
necklace: Ann Taylor oval pearlized (similar)
sweater: Ann Taylor cotton blend tie front wrap cardigan (sold here; similar)
bracelets: Forever 21 swirled pearlescent bead cuff (similar; similar);
Forever 21 rhinestone snake chain (similar)

  2. You're so right about fashion being cyclical. I just saw a similar look (wrap sweater, skirt) in beautiful fall colours from the Ann Taylor site: http://www.anntaylor.com/ann/catalog/outfit.jsp?outfitId=cat110080&loc=MHL_OCT_1012_WrapSweater&ICID=MHL_OCT_1012_WrapSweater

    1. The jewel-toned colors are indeed gorgeous. I really like how the model wore the wrap sweater over a cowl-neck top, too. Thanks for the link and inspiration!

    1. Other favorites of mine are "Saved by the Bell" and "90210." I may be dating myself by naming those, but oh, are they entertaining, especially watching nowadays :)

    1. I actually wasn't into WILAY when it was on TV many years ago. I only recently got into it now because it's a favorite of my SIL's. Count me as another Amanda Bynes fan -- absolutely loved her in She's the Man (one of my favs), and of course, Channing Tatum at his prime, as I'd like to say ;)

  7. Haha, I was just watching "Clueless" the other day and was thinking, "Who dresses like that!?" You did a lovely job of recreating an "old" outfit :)
