Today's Everyday Fashion: Outfit Evolution

Once upon a time (this summer), I discovered an adorable outfit on a mannequin at J.Crew and snapped a photo of it with my phone. This photo (and SJP) lead me to seek out a similar woven belt which I found at Rogue Retro. I then re-created the J.Crew look sans blazer, and after mulling it over for a couple days, decided that a mustard top and turquoise earrings would be even better. The final result looks hardly anything like my inspiration, but that my friends is all in the evolution of an outfit. :-) Which look is your favorite? Have you ever gone back to "improve" an old outfit?
