Dress It Down

Dress It Down is a feature wherein I create a casual, affordable outfit inspired by a red carpet look. 

Today’s Dress It Down is inspired by: 

Samantha Harris at the FiFi Awards

I chose a top that mimicked the color and style of the waist and neckline details on Samantha’s dress, as well as the soft pleating and loose, flowing look of the dress’ fabric. Gold flats help maintain the sophisticated, dressier style of the original look, but allow for greater comfort during active daily wear. A pair of basic blue jeans compliments the top without overpowering it, and the gold hoops and blue-green cocktail ring are in keeping with Samantha’s elegant, but subdued accessories. 

Top: Wet Seal, $21.50

Shoes: Piperlime, $39.00

Jeans: American Eagle, $29.50

Earrings: Charlotte Russe, $4.00

Ring: Dorothy Perkins, ~$11.50

Total cost to dress it down: $105.50
