Pinterest —> Real Life Interest

Truth time:  My name is Charlie and I spend WAY too much time browsing  “Women’s Fashion” on Pinterest.

I said it.  
This should redeem me of all my “wasted” time.

Though, I have to admit:

I want to know where these fabulous women live, work, and breathe!!!

I’ve lived in 5 different states in 5 years with my career and can I just say I’ve come across ONE WOMAN who looks like a walking Pinterest board everyday???

Note: this woman did not buy her own clothes, her husband did. (My jaw is still on the floor). But she styled them daily and always said she hated shopping and fashion. She was a rare breed that was just fashionable by genetic (and marriage) default. #luckyduck

So, I figured I would try to emulate the looks of the women whose clothes/pins/pinboards inspire me!

Here’s how it all turned out:

Rocker Chic

Rocker Chic.  If you lived through the 90’s, you’ll see why I find this grunge-rock look singing “It smells like teen spirit” … Not my favorite look, I’ll be honest.  But it’s simple and inexpensive to say the least.  Find the ORIGINAL LOOK HERE.

My take:
Denim Jacket – GAP Outlet – $35
Graphic t – Fleurty Girl – $25
Lace Bodycon Skirt – Forever 21 – $7
Wrap Boots – Steve Madden – $35
Hose – target – $5
TOTAL: $107

Might be most appropriate for a concert???
Definitely NOT for work!
