Copycat Kendi #2

This is my copycat version of Kendi's "Something New" post from back in April.  The mint green and red together look so amazing on her it made me want to try these colors together.  I already had the jeans and tee, I just had to find a necklace that would work with this outfit.  I really tried to find the exact one Kendi wore, but hers is from 2010 Anthropologie.  I see one on Ebay, but it isn't the same color, and it wouldn't work as well with this outfit because of the white in the necklace.  I found a similar one, though I wish this necklace were longer.  It was really important that the necklace had two shades of green.  I looked forever it seems.

I went out of my comfort zone with this necklace for sure.  This necklace is big and chunky, and not what I usually wear for accessories. And now I'm comfortable with chunky statement necklaces!  You just gotta try once.

My version does not have red suede pumps or a cute heart tote as Kendi's or any other handbag with red in it.  I have one pair of red shoes, and they are patent leather peep-toe pumps with wood-stacked heels.  I tried them on with this outfit, but the shine of the patent leather just doesn't work with the red jeans.  Suede is so much more subdued, and  they would not take away from the red jeans, they would blend right in.  Instead I have brown sandals and my casual leather khaki handbag.  My accessories don't work as well, but I worked with what I already have.

If I only had to get one new item to copy a Kendi outfit, than I'm totally excited.  I know I'll be able to remix this necklace.  I have a bunch of ideas of how to wear this thing.  Francesca's has the cutest necklaces and scarves.  I've never heard of this store until Kendi's blog.  I recently discovered there's one in my closest mall, and I definitely like the price point.

It was chilly this day so I put on the denim jacket.  It doesn't really help the outfit, but it did keep me warm.

  2. Super nice outfit. I love the red jeans pair with the denim jacket. Oh, and that statement necklace is pretty amazing. I have two statement necklaces on order and I can't wait to get them!

  4. Tiffany glasses are one of the most popular collections among the Hollywood stars. A lot of cinema stars, singers, actors and other celebrities adore and wear these glasses.
