Yesterday morning the most amazing thing happened on my way to work. I was running a bit late, so I hauled ass off the subway and started walgging (you know when you're walking so fast, you're practically jogging? That's "walgging") to the office. I saw a photo shoot happening up ahead, and as I rushed passed, I saw MY SISTER crouched down styling the model's outfit. I got so excited, I stopped and started waving like a lunatic; I could hardly contain myself. Liza was equally excited to see me, and when she came over we hugged and started jumping up and down. I have no idea why. We see each other every single day in the apartment. I guess it was just neat seeing each other unexpectedly, and at a photo shoot Liza was doing on the streets of New York, no less! In that moment for some reason, in our own small way, I felt like we both had made it.
Anyway, Liza told me my outfit was cute and when I looked at it later, I realized it was actually something she had inspired! She did a shoot for the November issue of Women's Health on how to layer clothing. It's probably one of my favorite shoots she's done so far. One of the outfits was a magenta top with a black and white stripe top peeking out at the sleeves (p. 49 for anyone who has a copy of the issue!). OK, so my outfit looks nothing like what that model is wearing, but that's where I stole the idea from! Check it out here.
I never, ever try to copy things I see in magazines, so I was pretty proud of myself on this one. What about you: Have you ever worn an outfit inspired from something you saw in a magazine?
