How To Get Away With Murder - Copy #1

My lastest obsession is to copy outfits I see on TV.  I'm already super excited about clothes, so when I'm wearing an exact piece I've seen an actress wear from a TV show I'm into - the excitement level about the piece I'm wearing, well, it just goes without saying.

This dress and jacket were seen on "Michaela" of "How To Get Away With Murder," Season 1, Episode 5.  I had to work really hard to actually purchase these pieces.  It took weeks.  When I first discovered the dress and jacket - they were already sold out.  I kept checking back frequently, and finally on Black Friday Week my sizes became available again and was able to purchase the dress and jacket with deep, deep markdowns and promo codes.  I seriously lucked out on these.  It was truly a miracle.

Do You Have A Fashion Blog?

Today at my local Nordstrom a customer came over to me and asked me if I have a fashion blog.  I was stunned.  Thank you, Michela, for recognizing me from this blog!  I am still amazed.  I had this happen to me one other time, it was the first time I had met Style Underdog, who is now Beverly Like Hills.  At the grocery store, she came up to me and asked if I was No More Frump! That was so cool.

Today's encounter with Michela made me realize I should post.  The thing is my husband is rarely home when the light is right, blah blah blah.  I have my 9 year old taking outfit photos with my iPhone just about everytime I'm dressed up, and the photos aren't so great.  So I just don't post them.

Today's outfit:  I copied all of the clothing from outfit from a mannequinn at Nordstrom back in October.  The mannequin did not provide the tights, shoes, handbag or earrings, so I had to think of those things on my own.  I love this skirt because it's grey, not black.  I wore tights today because it was cold and rainy.  I tried black tights on first, but I think the grey looks more interesting than black.

October 2014 Nordstrom Mannequin Outfit

Halogen® Twill Moto Jacket, black -
Halogen® Pleated A-Line Skirt, Grey Ebony Houndstooth - (now available at
DKNY Hosiery Semi-Sheer Tights, Flannel Grey - Nordstrom
kate spade 'licorice too' pump, Black Suede -
Cara Studded Faux Leather Cuff - Nordstrom
MARC BY MARC JACOBS 'Classic Q Natasha - Mini' Crossbody Flap Bag, Black - Nordstrom

Note:  This bracelet (Cara Stone Cuff, Black Diamond/ Hematite) was on the mannequin in addition to the studded cuff, and I bought it.  The two cuffs together looked incredible.  Unfortunately the stone cuff kept flying off my wrist so I had to return it.  I was so sad since it was my favorite part of the outfit.  Instead, today I wore the kate spade bangle in silver, in hopes to bring in silver to complement the skirt as the stone cuff did so beautifully.

I think my 9 year old did a great job today.
