Do It My Darn Self!


It's Monday and I'm ready for Friday already. This will be short and sweet because it's naptime. I saw a picture of Janet Jackson at last week's Fashion Week festivities and loved the look to death. I knew immediately that I could throw that look together. For a second, I did say to myself that even I would have have shown a little more "cleavage" than Ms. Nasty but I get it...she was going for the school librarian look. The look also put me in the mind of Michele Obama.

So here is my version of the Sexy Librarian/Teacher look. We will call this segment D.I.M...NOT...D.I.Y...because I DID IT MYSELF!




Cardigan: Target
Skirt: Banana Republic
Shirt: Urban Outfitters
Shoes: 9 West
Bag: In Philly visiting my cousin Messa 5 yrs ago

The challenge is still going on...just thought would share my D.I.M with you:)

You did a damn good job with recreating the look

I think your curves have taken you waaaaaaay past creating Janet's look. You're smoking! Janet's got nothing on you. Great job.

You commented on my blog (thank you) and since I had no idea who you were, it led me to YOUR blog. I really enjoyed reading through your blog- I love that you thrift, you have an excellent sense of color, and love the outfits you put together- very stylish and figure flattering. You have made me a new follower :)

I've been looking for a belt like Janet's, just that perfect shade of brown, but haven't found one yet! So I'm still on the search..... :)

This look is so cute! I am loving the studded belt! Well done

Juanette said...

Okay, SERIOUSLY, get out of my head!!!!! I saved the pic of Janet from Fashion week because I was going to do a post and emulate the look but laziness abounds these days and I didn't finish it. Your look is great, and we have got to trace our family tree, I swear you're my twin! (Even though I'm older, lol!)

Oh my gosh... I just came to visit your blog after seeing your comment, and as I was browsing I couldn't resist commenting on this perfect outfit. From the studded belt to the pencil skirt to the ruffles to the argyle to the shoes! It takes my breath away in its perfection.
