Let's be honest - I took some serious creative license here! I originally had on a button front denim skirt and black leather jacket just like my celebrity inspiration, but jeans and a leopard coat felt more practical for my lifestyle (it was too cold for bare legs the day we shot this!). Pretty much the only thing our outfits have in common now are the graphic tees and velvet shoes, and I'm totally okay with that. In fact, I like not exact-copying even better. I changed my inspiration and I encourage you guys to do the same. There are plenty of practical outfits to be found in things you don't like or don't work for you without some major adjustments!
