Lots going on with this top: lace insets, pin tuck pleats, lace insets in the cuffs, button back, puff shoulders…whew. This would like kind of cool on Steffy too with some leather pants. Or on Hope with some white wide leg pants. I can’t find The Real Deal on this one either? I must be losing my touch.
I was hoping to get a Taylor post up yesterday in honor of the Stephanie/ Taylor scenes, but I had a difficult time finding Taylor’s blouse and sweater. And I’m pretty sure the reason why is that these two items are from past seasons from Tory Burch. I can tell from the logo buttons on the cardigan that it is Tory Burch, and I’m 95% certain the print on the blouse is also from the same designer. But sometimes…like in our own closets, we wear things from (gasp) a year or so ago. Frankly I would be doing cartwheels down the street if I could wear some jeans from 5 years ago. In any case, Taylor looking beautiful (even when she’s crying too) with her classic, elegant style. To get her look here are a few things that are on the market:
Steffy makes a fitted dress look so easy to wear. Hey it’s no big deal, just need a perfect body and just add a fitted dress. Or great shapewear. Anyone try Heather RHONY’s Yummie Tummie brand? Digressing. Actually no I really do want to know about Yummie Tummie. Back to the outfit; perfect styling with the booties, the pink clutch, and I would have predicted a drop earring, but then I am surprised with a lariat necklace. In a good way. I’m heading back to the gym.
First this elephant necklace, now these owl earrings. Caroline is picking all the brilliant creatures to wear…but they aren’t helping her make good decisions when it comes to men though.
This skirt is nature inspired with a bird print, so you know I insta-gravitate. Birds were very spring 2012, but I like how this lightweight pleated mini is paired with a heavier black top which makes it a more transitional fall type outfit (albeit the top is light with lace and pin tucks…still more top heavy styling). No luck with The Real Deal, but here are a few similar.
Did you ever notice, that Brooke is a beautiful crier? Something I’m envious of, since I’m a distorted, red faced, get really ugly crier when I cry. I just had to throw that in there since there have been so many tears lately (including my own watching these Stephanie scenes). Anyhow, great blouse, love the color, and I love the relaxed leather/chain belt styling on her.
A bolder, blonder Caroline none too impressed with Thomas acting as CEO of douche-baggery. The Real Deal of this dress is by Etoile Isabel Marant, which was also sold out when Caroline first wore this here back in July. This is the closest available on the market at the moment.
I spent so much time focusing on the blouse that I ignored the best part of Brooke’s outfit…her tuxedo pants. With a modern fit and a black on grey contrast piping, so chic. Imagine these with a sexy silk halter for evening, or a fitted short sleeve turtleneck. Nice modern twist to a wardrobe basic.
