If there is one thing to know about fashion, it's that September is basically its holy month. New York Fashion Week explodes in NYC, and of course the fashion Bible comes out. Yes, I am talking about the one and only September Issue of Vogue. (There is even a documentary about it! You should watch it. Anna Wintour really is scary.)
Since I am extremely intimidated by events such as NYFW (I seriously think I would need, like, three Xanax before stepping into that concrete jungle of aggressively dressed fashion mavens), I stick to my magazines. Vogue and InStyle have always, always been my prized fashion reads. You see, Vogue is for oooing and awing at all of the sparkly, shiny things. I swear I can smell the leather of the bags rising from the pages . InStyle is more my jam where I draw my everyday style inspiration, since they incorporate high and low pieces together into real life, workable outfits. Sure, a lot of it is still mostly high for my clothing budget since we have things like student loans and college for two kids to save for, but hey, a girl can improvise, right?
I thought it would be fun to recreate a look featured in InStyle on a small budget price range. The main trend I noticed was no fuss, no frills and clean lines. With a lot of black, white and grey. Taking that all into consideration, I decided to go with this boyfriend fit sweater and a flirty skirt with almond toe heels. You know, go outside of my usual outfit box of jeans and flat shoes of some sort!
It was actually a blast digging through racks to match the look best I could — kind of like a fashion scavenger hunt, if you will. I even managed to escape the grips of a toddler and baby, and get gussied up in heels! That is newsworthy information! That's it, I am declaring today a holiday! And using it as an excuse to eat some cake! But really though, in all seriousness I love the way this look turned out. It was sleek and sophisticated, and the black and grey combo cannot be beat. (And neither can an entire outfit for $100.)
I highly recommend you go pick yourself up a copy of Vogue and InStyle this week for your dose of shnazzy fashion. Right now at Target when you purchase two fall fashion magazines (choice of Vogue, InStyle, and/or ELLE) you get a $5 gift card, which you will then probably go buy some shoes with. I would if I were you — we can be shoe twins! The promotion goes through September 13. Happy reading and styling!
