Thanks, DeBran for this fabulous coat!!

I had so much fun with the last Closet Collection, that I decided to find another collection to try to emulate. This time it was 3.1 Phillip Lim Fall 2008 RTW. I know that none of the outfits are going to be completely spot-on, but remember that everything I'm wearing is out of my own closet, so I had to improvise. I just like to see if I could make an inspired-by collection from my own clothes to give myself new ideas of how to remix and re-wear old clothes.

I really loved the basic, neutral colors of this collection... the blues, grays, whites and blacks. Also the feminine feel of masculine pieces. Even though it may not be this seasons "looks" I think they're still very stylish and relevant. What do you think? Are these wearable for everyday? Which ones are the best? I think #4 and #6 are my favorite, and might have to give those a run out in the real world.

Any suggestions for the next collection?

  3. I really liked a lot of these looks and think they're a lot more wearable than the runway collection. I think you could make just about any of them work IRL especially if you didn't roll your hems or tuck flowy pants into boots.

  6. The last time you did this I thought it was awesome. Glad to see you tried it again! I am really impressed. Most of those looks on the runway I wouldn't think you could pull off IRL, but when I see your interpretation, they just look awesome! Great job. I love the last one.

  20. Just popped over to say hi from 365 Truth... and I am impressed! You did a great job emulating each style. Numbers 8 is my favorite (love the coat!), then 6, then 4. But they all look rockin'.

  24. I think everyone loves the last photo best is because we can actually see your rockin' body! The photos just seem more bulky than the "Runway" looks and your beautiful long legs are cut short by rolling your cuffs. I really DON'T mean to criticize!! You're style is great, I do the same thing, I tear out pictures from GLAMOUR and go to my closet to emulate. I'm a size 14 so I buy everything in lightweight fabrics so I can layer w/o appearing too big.

  26. You're amazing! i love your interpretations of the outfits and all these outfits work really nicely in real life, i especially love the last outfit

  27. I think this is incredible and you should make from runway to hallway a running feature on your blog or you could do your own interpretation of deisgner clothes and make it a weekly feature, just an idea :)
