Wardrobe Wednesday #15 - inspired

So Nin's challenge for the month is to take inspiration from any source and make it our own when putting an outfit together,

So... I have a wee confession to make (not the peanut butter on cheap white bread one - I already confessed to that!) I'm a bit of a  wannabe dancer.

So today I'm taking inspiration from the 'dancer off duty' look - slouchy pants, fitted tee, ponytail, minimal makeup, flat shoes. Just makes me want to bust a move.

While I may be no ballerina - my flat feet and ample bust put paid to ballet as a possible career option (and the lack of discipline to practise and requirement to live on lettuce leaves!) I do adore moving to music and let me tell you - I got some moves - just none that will make it to 'So you think you can dance'!
I also like this as a holiday look, and a superstar doing the incognito thing.... Just add over sized dark glasses and some labelled shopping bags (and maybe 10-20 less kgs - but who's worried about that)
My photo shoot today is also inspired by Jess who always has heaps of fun with her WW posts.

Pants - classic clothing (I know!)I love these pants- they have a super high waist and they are wide and really long,
t-shirt - gift,
Shoes - 25c TradeMe
What is your wannabe dress style? I also love the ballet chiffon and frou, frou look but I really don't carry it off.

Pop over and see what other ladies are inspired by - just click on the pic!

on a related or unrelated note I've had a bit of a sewing fail - chose a pattern that really isn't a great shape for me.... I'm down to the last 3 steps to finish but I don't think it's redeemable for me.... suggestions??

Oh I love this look - yoga-chic! And I love the way you have taken the theme in that direction. I haven't bought anything from Classic Clothing but I always use their car park and sneak through the store, maybe I should be having a good look next time. I give them props for being NZ made. :)

But who doesn't fancy themselves a dancer?! I mean I still think of that snickers ad from the 80s and think she was the coolest lady on TV "I eat a snickers, and then I can dance again".

Love love LOVE this! Love your poses, love your attitude, love your outfit - I'm a bit of a wannabe dancer too! It was my biggest desire as a child to be a ballerina. Alas, I don't have (and I'd guess never did!) the discipline or self-control to carry it off either...

Every now and again I stumble on a winner there - I have 3 items from there and I wish they still stocked those pants cos I could do with a smaller size. You have to be prepared to look past a lot of the stock though!

and let's not forget , 'oh I'm so hungry, cue fake laugh!'

Miriam said...

If only we lived nearby each other I'm sure we'd make great friends!

I agree! We'll just have to be Blogland friends instead!
