Dress for Less: Inspired by Jenni Kayne



  Sunday, February 20, 2011 at 8:15 AM   |    Post a Comment     Tagged:,,, 
Yesterday I posted this look from the Jenni Kayne show and I just had to make a Dress for Less with it.  Even though it's for next Fall you can totally wear it now (just add tights if you live where I do), I would... *drools*  I couldn't find burgundy velvet shorts so I switched the colors around. Its not as perfect as I would like it to be, but its pretty close and has the same feeling.
Shorts: ASOS  $32.27
Sweater: ASOS $71.72
Flats: American Eagle $19.95
Total: $123.94

  21. Those shoes remind me of Disney's Cinderella a bit. ALways wanted shoes like that as a kid! (I thought she looked way better pre-makeover, but I've always been contrary)
