Re-creating a look found on Pinterest

Do you love Pinterest as much as I do? As a stylist, it’s one of my most useful tools. I happily recommend to my clients that they start a Pinterest board to get a handle on what their ‘personal’ style is to begin with, and then refine and define that style.

My own personal style veers towards feminine first and foremost, and I fell in love with this outfit when I found the picture on Pinterest recently.


However, for my inverted triangle body shape and D cup bust, the high neckline on that particular dress would not be a very good choice for me at all. I found this alternative at Target, ($69) which although is strapless (again, not so good for me) will work as I will be wearing a cardigan over the top. The deep V neckline is far more flattering and the waist sits flatter over the tummy because there is less gathering.


The cardigan ($30) is also from Target. I like how it sits nicely to emphasize the waist.


Finding accessories is always the fun part and can sometimes be easy and other time very frustrating! Today, it was easy, thanks to a combination of online browsing and old fashioned pounding of the pavement….(phew!)
