fake outfit layering - The Fashionably Broke

fake outfit layering

DSC_0292 DSC_0319 DSC_0337 DSC_0322 DSC_0331 DSC_0346 how to best layer clothing? in the case of this dress, you don't. disguised as a shirt and skirt, it's a full monochromatic, layered outfit all in itself. erika does however layer on a denim jacket and voila, the perfectly layered outfit. the weather in dc has been so miserably hot though this week that i have been doing actually the exact opposite of layering. hoping it cools down soon!

especially loving this look because it sort of resembles that whole matching top and bottom look that i have been attempting a lot lately. i tried to buy the matching blouse to these shorts today, but was not well when i discovered they didn't have my size. don't you hate that? day ruiner.

can you tell from this post though that we have agreed, mixing metals is okay? and were these studded sam edelman ankle boots the best purchase erika has probably made to date? we say, yes.

erika wore this outfit to the La Petite Marmoset showroom opening party, which was in the most amazing space and where i purchased a super hot, high-low, vintage LPM dress (obviously, i've already worn it and hopefully it will be blogged by next week). there's nothing better than having friends in the business of redesigning vintage clothes, right? love you Katherine & Ashley!

you can check out the rest of the photos from the event here on our facebook page.
