Inspiration - Ann Taylor Loft

1:01 AM

Whenever I come across an outfit that strikes out or speaks to me personally, I save those images from magazines and websites for inspirations. As I am sure many do?

A couple of times bloggers inspire me, like here and here, and other times celebrities do. However, most times it is from random places which are not even meant to be fashionable like a billboard or an advertisement for household products, etc. I thought it would be interesting to actually show you all where I got the inspiration from. 

This is from the Ann Taylor Loft's SS11 Collection Print Ad.
 I do not own a nude blouse or a big-floral-print skirt, however I did find a nude-pleated skirt and a big-floral-print blouse in my closet. I decided to reverse it! I think it still works! What do you think? 

Top - Zara [11']; Skirt - Lulu's Via Giftcard [11']; Shoes - Atelier [Delhi, 06']

  7. Your reversal looks loads better than the model, the muted shades are a big change for you but look so pretty. x

  13. I love this outfit! Isn't it funny how inspiration comes from the most random places? Also, do I spy an ankle tattoo? Am I allowed to be nosy and ask what it is (because I just did-haha) Hope you're having a nice morning, Tanvi! xoxox

  15. Not only does it totally work, you're also making a good point about how inspiration works... It sets one's own creative thinking in motion.

  21. That's a delightful combination. Good eye!

    After reading that other bloggers do this, I've started collecting pictures of outfits I admire and put them in an inspiration file. We can always use good ideas.

  33. This is a really nice look on you Tanvii. I am very into the pleated skirts right now and the color of this one is so romantic and pretty.
    PS: your hair looks amazing! I always try to do a chic pony like this with some height in the front but it never works for me.

  73. btw, i really like the way you`ve done ur hair here. I know its all the rage now but it gives u such an edgy look(specially in the first pic, with the print ad) to be contrasted with the softness of the outfit :)

  74. It did work and was looking great on you... :)

  77. Hi there!! Thank you for commenting on my "Corset Top" post. I hadn't finished it, but I included commentary on it if you want to go back and have a read...only because I wrote a thank you note to all of my readers (that means YOU!). xoxo

    I do like the skirt. The whole outfit is better than the Ann Taylor one! I want a skirt like that....would look great at work or on a night out. Lovely color!
