InStyle August 2010

About half way done with the August issue of InStyle and these are some of my fave looks... which just happen to be ads! The Armani ad is pure elegance in a black dress which I could easily re-create with a stand out layered black skirt, a wrap over black top and a black scarf.... think I will def. try and you can wear this outfit now and just add tights or o.t.k. socks in the fall with chunky ankle boots. Bottega is a simple black wool dress but the lines are delicious and sharp. Don't forget the killer wedge ankle boots. Lust. Chanel always kills it and this ad is no exception. Love the American Indian inspiration of this dress. I am currently scouring vintage shops for a vintage American Indian suede dress complete with beads and all. I also asked my sister for her Abominable Snowman boots... yes I hated them when they came out how many years ago? She snagged a pair at Walmart a few seasons back and have not seen them there since (she can find a deal anywhere never to be seen again!). SOOOOO Em how about sending them my way and I can cut them down to ankle size and shave off half of the hairy look lol?!?! Stay tuned on that one.... Lastly, Gap has mimicked the Miu Miu print and you can have some cute jeans with the swallow motif for a decent price. I am so still going to try the tip I saw on BleachBlack a while ago... got my 90's boots ready! But can I master the Sharpie - hmmmmmm
