And she cinched in her waist with a skinny black belt. Since it was fall when this picture was taken, she layered the look with a white scarf and a black blazer. Then she tied the whole outfit together with a pair of classic black heels. This look is perfect to recreate because most of us already have at least one or two of these pieces sitting in out closets. Am I right?
Alright, let's start with the core of this outfit, the striped dress. Luckily, I found a great sleeveless striped dress while thrifting. And I was super lucky that day! There was a sale at Diversity Thrift, where all clothing was one dollar!
And I love the zipper detail in the back! The great gold zipper with the ring clasp is a great pretty little detail! Can you believe it was a dollar?
This is a dark chambray jacket that I got from my older cousin. I was picking through some of her older clothes and this was a great find! It's such a classic piece that can be worn over and over again! This jacket looks very much like a classic black blazer. But I decided to bring out the navy in my striped dress like the way Emma Watson has the black blazer to bring out the stripes of her dress.
And I got the belt from my mother's closet. It's an old belt she used wear back in the eighties. I just love it's simplicity! Emma Watson wore a simple black belt that is very reminiscent of this simple grey belt I got from my mother's closet.
The shoes are nude Steve Madden flats. They are so comfy after I broke them in and they're a great pair of shoes to have because you can wear them with pretty much everything. They cost forty dollars, which is most of my budget. But I felt that I would wear these shoes quite often, so the forty dollars would be worth it.
And this is a scarf that I knitted myself. The yarn was on sale for about five dollars. So, in total I spent $48.50 including tax! I think I did pretty well! I have a whole outfit under fifty dollars! And the look is pretty similar. What do you think?
