A Year of Pin-Spiration

Today I'm sharing one last look back at 2014 Favorites, this time looking specifically at my favorite outfit interpretations from the past year.

I think my favorite (and most surpising!) fashion discovery of 2014 was figuring out that I dress like a rap mogul. But it turns out Jay-Z is a pretty great style inspiration, and I went on to imitate three of his outfits this year: (Original Posts: Sagittarius Style and Working Backwards)

Blazer: Express / Tee: Old Navy / Jeans: Express (Similar) / Necklace: Forever 21 / Shoes: Sole Society

Sweater: Express / Tunic Tank: Target / Jeans: Nordstrom (Similar) / Booties: Express / Necklace: Express (Similar)

Moto Jacket: Express / Tee: Old Navy / Jeans: Express (Similar) / Booties: Target (Similar)  / Necklace: Old Navy  / Belt: Target

When the ladies from my favorite guilty pleasure TV show started wearing clothes from my favorite store, it was a no-brainer for me to re-create some of their looks. (Original Post: Real Housewives Style)
 Blouse: Express / Skirt: Express  / Shoes: Zara / NecklaceForever 21

Blouse: Express / BeltGap / Jeans: Express / Sandals: Vince Camuto "Luciah" / Necklace: Old Navy

This one just might be my favorite post of the year. I never want to look worse than the person whose outfit I'm re-creating, so what better way to avoid that risk than by not dressing like a person? Re-creating outfits has become a piece of cake, so this year I decided to take it literally. (Original Post: Outfits Take the Cake)

Lace Tank:  Express / Cami: Express / Shorts: J. Crew (Exact Color Sold Out) Necklace: Forever 21 / Chevron Bracelet: Express / Sandals: Vince Camuto "Luciah"

I think I've worn this outfit three times in real life since doing this re-creation. It's one of my favorite night-out looks, and I even wore for my meet-up with Carylee and Noelle. (Original Post: Scorpio Style)
Barcelona Cami: Express / Blazer: H&M ( Forever 21 version) / Jeans: Nordstrom / Necklace: Target / Bracelet: Express  / Bag: Forever 21 / Shoes: Nordstrom (Similar)

It's not so much this outfit that I think is special, but it was just so nice to find a nice staple piece like this tee at a such great price! It goes with pretty much everything. (Original Post: The Striped Tee)
 Tee: Nordstrom / Scuba Leggings: Express (Similar) / Scarf: Express (Similar) / Booties: Target

I feel like my fashion inspirations came full circle in this post with outfit re-creations from my favorite childhood fashion icon - Barbie. (Original Post: I'm a Barbie Girl)

2014 was really a blast for me with this blog. I had so much fun making new content, new friendships, and especially new versions of "already been done" outfits. Thanks for your support and I hope you'll keep on coming back for more in 2015!
