Today's Everyday Fashion: It's A Boy

Yep, that's a boy in my inspiration photo! I love saving menswear looks for inspiration, but this is the first time I've ever re-created one. I added a couple feminine elements such as a ruffled top and patent heels, but stuck to his overall color palette and I have to say I'm digging it. (I also love his clutch, I want one that's "floppy" like that soon.)

Speaking of purses, I'm holding my latest find. Purses are something I usually mull over before I can decide for sure. The pros and cons list for this one? Pros: it meets my bare minimum standards because it's genuine leather and has gold hardware. I also don't have any purses this color, and it was only $60 (score!) at Ross. Cons: it seems a tad big, and almost like a backpack shape. Anyone care to offer their vote? Also, have you ever been inspired by a menswear look?
