This look was inspired by Ms Olivia Palermo. She is the one person whose style I truly admire. There are many more ladies whose style I love, but everything Olivia wears I say, "I freaking love that". She isn't afraid to go outside the box, and when she does she still makes it look elegant and classy. The only thing with admiring her style is, is that she doesn't have the same body type as I do. She is very lean and thin, and I am very curvy and fuller figured. So when I see something she wears I have to make it work for my body type. I always accept that challenge. This pin on Pinterest has been in my head for quite some time now. I literally couldn't wait to find the pieces I needed to create my own version of this look. I DIY'd a pair of denim I had to add the "undone" factor to the look. The top I still went with a white, but chose a style that was more fitted and not as loose, so I wouldn't lose my figure in it. I switched a red pair of heels for a black pair. I added a statement necklace, my signature. Last but not least, I chose a bold color for the clutch.
