Greetings Tall Team!
I ran across this amazing style board on stylist, Demi Dorsey's IG page and decided to create a rendition of this look. This look screams 90's, with the bold colors, prints and classic sneakers.
My biggest issue recreating this look came with deciding on which printed bodycon to make the base for the entire look. I started with a gold-chain printed bodycon (left) and ended up with a colorful vibrant print bodycon (right). My blogger boo Janell, @theWorkingBeauty found this for me while thrifting.
After I selected the dress, I wanted to replicate the cassette purse from his style board, it was sooo cute! I didn't purchase the Chanel purse but I found a similar one here.
Instead of the Classic Adidas shell toe sneakers, I decided to go with the Gazelle Adidas, since the base my bodycon dress was black.
As a replacement for the checkered jacket, I used a collared striped shirt for the outerwear. I wrapped the shirt around my waist since its scorching hot here in Atlanta.
My style and fashion are inspired by my feelings, colors, prints, trends, fads, and even other people. Although my outfit looks completely different from Demi Dorsey's style board, its similar and I was influenced by it. There's nothing wrong with being inspired by others but be unique enough to produce your style with whatever you're inspired by.
