What I Wore: Vaguely Inspired

Skirt, Åhlens; shirt, my dad's; leggings, ???; boots, La Canadienne; belt, Joe Fresh.

You are probably wondering why there is a model wearing one of the looks from Betsey Johnson's spring 2010 ready to wear collection next to my outfit shot. It's there because this outfit was somewhat inspired by the dress shown. I was reading through some old posts the other day ( I reviewed the Betsey Johnson spring 2010 ready to wear collection here.) and was like "OMFG, I could totally do something vaguely similar!" So I tried. Obviously, since it's December, which in Maritime Canada=cold (around -12 degrees Celsius), I added leggings and boots, and I don't have any little white dresses, or any white dresses at all, A white button down with a belt was called upon.

This post was also inspired by Sal of Already Pretty's Weird Friday idea. This may be pretty standard, but once the temperature plummets, I go into hypothermic Rosie mode, and live in multiple sweaters a day, jeans and yoga pants everyday. BORING!

Thoughts? Requests?

Love, Rosie


  1. luvs the betsey johnson dresses ~~ cute! & I like how the pink isn't the extreme girly pink ;)

  2. i like how you took inspiration from the shot, I kind of suck at putting together looks based on editorials.... I like the texture of your skirt.

  3. Cute skirt! I'd totally wear that with everything XD Winter is an excuse for layering and wearing all your favourite clothes all at once!

  4. That skirt is so cute, I so regret that I didn't buy it when it was on sale.

    Oh hope you get a nice weekend anyway.
