Open to Interpretation

Photobucket

Picking an inspiration picture for a group OTI is kind of hard. When I showed Erica my initial pick I could see her shaking her head through gchat. Not accessible. People would balk. So I sent her this one and she said, "Perfect!" And she's right, of course. This is the kind of classic outfit that pretty much anyone can interpret with stuff they already own.

I really wanted to wear a cozy sweater but, strangely, I own zero cable knit. So this is what I came up with:

Button up free from swap (similar), thrifted and altered red top, khakis from American Eagle altered (similar), Target heels (similar), bangle from a trip to the Bahamas



Bright + neutral + layers. I actually started out with something a lot closer to the original but I hated it and declared a last minute re-do yesterday. I was much happier.

Link up your OTI below! Or you can also add it to the Flickr group!

  5. I like your spin on it. It's fun to see how the looser interpretations still capture the flavor of the inspiration outfit.

  7. I will admit that this one was stumping me a bit but I think I was being too literal. Now that I see what others are doing I can go in the direction that's comfortable for me.

  8. Loving your interpretation Kayla. Way to improvise w/no cable knit. If only we could all be so lucky to own a piece of cable knit! ;) Those heels are rockin'.

  10. I like what you pulled from the color pallet. I can almost see you doing the same process I went though, basically putting on the outfit the model is wearing and then trading out pieces until you are wearing something you like :)

  11. I love how that jacket looks with the button up. I sometimes go too literal with challenges like this and I get the outfit in your interpretation too.

    I also can't believe that you have no cable knit sweaters... tis a shame. :)

  12. Another good prompt - love the inspiration outfit. And I hope you do more of these group OTIs... I feel like I'm quite literal in my interpretations, but it would be a great exercise of my creativity to try to make some more inspirations my own!
