REBECCA MINKOFF Spring/Summer 2013 RTW Inspired - GET THE LOOK FOR UNDER $100 & Remix!

Hi everyone!

Today I have a special post for you.

After watching Rebecca Minkoff Spring/Summer 2012 Ready to Wear collection from this video (click) here, I was instantly inspired. Beside the colors and the bags (I used to associate Rebecca Minkoff with awesome bags) my eyes was easily caught by some details:
  • gradient flower prints; they remind me of floral pattern clothes that some part of them washed away by sweat, but in a good way that pretty is a result!
  • oversized man-shirt-like sleeves, which i call boyfriend sleeves.
  • fringe hem that i always love
  • lace up details which currently I hunt in relation to my wish for the perfect lace up booties and native Austrian clothing (Oktober Fest time).
  • In collective way, there are also plaid, unisex T-shirt, ombre, and ethnic look stripes.
  • These are not all yet...(keep reading to find out)
The whole look for me was a modern, sporty woman with a feminine boho spirit of freedom. She is dynamic but calm, smart, optimistic and of course self confident.

However there is one thing more that has inspired me from the collection: 
  • the layering
These summer layering I want to try even for the upcoming fall. Below I show you the layering looks in Rebecca Minkoff Spring/Summer 2013 i have highlighted together with inspired outfit you can get for under $100 ! Take a look!

First, I am interested in how she layered a sophisticated spaghetti strap dress with the "boyfriend sleeves shirt" (pardon my metaphor)

Second is two spaghetti strap dresses, instead of two tank tops or tank top with dress. I like how this layering plays the shapes of two dresses and the sheer fabric over the floral. I think it will create an interesting effect when moving. Complete the look with gladiator sandals, it resonates bohemian vibe.

Third, I like if sheer top is worn in a classy way. I see a lot people wearing sheer top lately, around or in internet. In this one of Rebecca Minkoff collection, all pieces just fall into place and balance.  It looks comfy but not clumsy. I believe I will look taller in it too :). Just make sure each piece fits properly.

So what do you think? Note that these copycat looks I created are all excluding the bags, okay :).

As for my self, experimenting bits and pieces of the Rebecca Minkoff Spring/Summer 2013 RTW collection, I present to you one of the result: an inspired Rebecca Minkoff Spring/Summer 2013 outfit for $0! Why $0? Well, it's a combination of items I have already had plus a little DIY touch with materials happen to be lying around me :).

So let me remix some details i love from the collection which include lace up jumper, fringe, ombre and shirt. Yup, all! It turn out as below!

So this DIY remix is easy peasy.

For the jumper, Safety pins + cotton lace. Personally I like safety pins lately, even of course you can do many other ways. Slip the pin up to its full length to make it looks made to be and not breaks the fabric when it's pulled.

For the fringe skirt, i used wide long scarf, which I saw similar in some shopping malls for 3 Euros, well not the cashmere one. There is the wider one than what I wore. I folded it diagonally so the fringe would be on the bottom and i had a long hem for my waist. However I took care that the corners still overlap each other, and just wrapped it around my waist. I didn't make a knot like wearing beach sarong. I used textile floral belt. The upper part was stacked on my curve and a little bit folded down. I wore a short legging underneath. I would like to layer it with floral skirt next time!

So that's it! I wore it and was being cool and confident :). I just hope that my explanation is clear enough for you!

Coral heel sandals: Zalando
