Versace, Versace, Versace...Inspired

I love a good Versace anything, to be honest. Something about the classic gold chainlink print on a silk blouse!

But since Versace chainlinks cost Versace coin, I've suddenly found that Versace-inspired pieces need love too. 

This Versace-inspired blouse is somewhat of a thrifted find. I permanently borrowed it from my aunt during a closet clean-out a few years ago. I've only worn it once before, but today I felt just bawsy enough to pull it off. It has a royal blue, red, cream and gold print that features sayings, stars, feathers and an emblem. It also has its original black and gold buttons, which made for a great find!

Although this blouse is somewhat too big for me, I love what the loose, slouchy fit of the top adds to this look. To balance the top and bottom, I opted for a slim-fitting pencil skirt. 

Coco Note: Life is all about balance. Tight top = loose bottom and vice versa. 

I recently purchased this long-line pencil skirt from Zara. I have been looking for a black pencil skirt that is work and church appropriate for the longest.

Coco Note: By appropriate, I really mean not jersey or another bodytho- I mean bodycon material.

This skirt is a great length for all heights. It can be work with anything from stilettos to flats, and even a pair of Converse sneakers. Paired with a festive top, it can also be work to a family, office or church holiday dinner/party.

I added black and gold accessories and my suede and leather Dolce Vita pumps to add texture to this look. The gold, along with a red lip, made this look just bawsy enough to pull off the top!

Coco Note: Do I not look like I belong in a scene from American Hustle?!
