I'm trying something out today and I need your help!  I've got a blogroll of about 100 and there are always outfits that stand out to me each week.  So why not feature them?  I'm looking for outfits that flatter the wearers figure, feature a great trend, or just catches my eye.  So here's my Fashion Faves, but there's more...

Guidelines: 1) please link directly to the outfit post and not your blog main page and 2) you'll need to have my button either in the post you're submitting or in your sidebar so make sure you copy and paste the code below. 

Can't wait to see what you've got!

Everybody Everywear: Yellow

I was so excited that the next Everybody Everywear pick was yellow!  I love yellow and am addicted to it.  So I thought this would be a cinch to style, until I got dressed this morning.

I tried belting at the waist, at the waist under my 2nd layer, at my hips.  I knotted a shirt, I buttoned the shirt.  I put on wedges, then flats.  Didn't love any of it.  So I went with this:
Simple.  But I'm happy with it.   Shoes are Enzo Angiolini, capris are Wet Seal (previous season), shirt is ModBod, button-down is Express, necklace and headband is ShopBop (see here).

Style Inspired: Easy A and Emma Stone

I loved Emma Stone's style in Easy A (before the uh, "makeover").  I loved the layering, the casual feeling of it without being a simple t-shirt, just everything about it.  And yes, these are the best pictures I could find to showcase my inspiration.
 I've been on the lookout for a great vest since I saw the show and haven't seen a thing.  I wanted something with structure that could easily dress up or down and I found nada.  So, I did what I do best.  I made one. 
The vest might look familiar since I've worn this before for the BDIB: Prep School challenge.  And really, I truly love it. So here's the schpeal on the rest of my outfit:  shoes are Calvin Klein, jeans are from Gap (limited edition, previous season), t-shirt from Gap, vest is custom, bracelets were a gift.  I also made the pin from some leftover fabric of another project.
So what do you think?  Did I do a good job of fusing my inspiration with my own style?

Shirt from Ann Taylor Loft (previous season), belt from Fossil, skirt from Gap (previous season), shoes from Antonio Melani, sunglasses are Steve Madden

So our guest model today isn't anyone special to you, but she's special to me - and she just turned one!  And in case you're wondering her outfit is from Gymboree. :)

Also, I haven't been able to get a hold of last week's Summer Giveaway and I assumed that everyone else took a nice break for the 4th like me, so I held off announcing a new winner until today.  So our new winner is....TINAGIRL
Congrats, you have 48 hours to contact me!
