Steal Some Fashion Mojo

When something fashion-related makes me pause and pay attention for a minute, as this did, I know that I have found something that is essentially me, and I set about deconstructing it. Granted, this particular look is not exactly statement dressing, but then sometimes the statement that you wish to make is that you want to look quietly chic, and nothing more.
There is something about the simplicity of the lines and the modern mix of navy and black that struck a chord with me. It struck me to the point where I decided to try to suck out its very essence and claim it for my own. To steal its mojo, as Austin Powers would say. With apologies to Dion Lee, I admit that I did not buy the complete looks. Or any part of them, actually. If I‘m lucky, I may secure a few well thought-out, keep-forever runway pieces in a year, but for the most part, my ingrained pragmatic nature will simply not let me spend $300 on a t-shirt. So like any budget-minded gal, I decided I would simply steal the essence of the look with the help of some things that I already have in my own closet.
