playing with an ikat top and apricot skinnies in Pinterest

I am enjoying Pinterest and Closet Couture so much! I found two items on Nordstrom's site ( an ikat printed top and a pair of Wit and Wisdom apricot skinnies). I tried blending the two together and sort of like the results. Opinions on this combo? Here is the link where I sort of stuck them together!

    Pretty combo!
    Would you wear this? I think it would look great on you!

  • taylor replied 9 years ago

    Very pretty:)

  • Meredith1953 replied 9 years ago

    You know....I think I might wear that! I'm not sure I wouldn't want a topper of some sort though. I wouldn't have worn it before joining the forum but now I am more open to different kinds of looks!

    I like it! (if you wonder who asked to share your closet it was me :) I really should spend more time over at closetcouture now that I have most of my items photographed . . .

  • Transcona Shannon replied 9 years ago

    It's a gorgeous combination Meredith - and you have the "long and leanness" to wear something like this.

  • modgrl replied 9 years ago

    Very nice! it would be great with a white or denim jacket.

  • christieanne replied 9 years ago

    Love it! You could do this or a variation (with a white denim jacket is nice idea).
    FYI - following you on pinterest now. I need to spend more time there (like I need another distraction lol) and branch out.

  • Meredith1953 replied 9 years ago

    I'll share my closet with you as soon a I figure out how!
    thanks! It's nice you think I can carry out off!
    I was thinking a white or regular denim jacket at least to start. A cream blazer might work also.

    Cute outfit, Meredith. I like those skinnies. You can certainly wear this outfit. Just had to go to the Nordie's website to check out the skinnies and they also have them in mint. They just might be in my shopping cart!

  • kellygirl replied 9 years ago

    Is Closet Couture like Style Book? I should look into that.

  • Meredith1953 replied 9 years ago

    I followed you right back! I am still learning the ins and outs of pinterest and also just started with closetcouture. Polyvore is pretty nice also.
    I am thinking about the mint also and off hand without looking they might look nice with the top also! You will look really pretty in the mint I bet!
    Closetcouture was mentioned by another member on the forum. Mo and Rae both use it and I just signed up the other day so I need to figure out how to link up and share closets since Mo mentioned that earlier in the post.

    Ooh fun outfit! I love pinterest too :D

  • Meredith1953 replied 9 years ago

    Thanks! I like Pinterest, Polyvore and ClosetCouture! They all seem to have different strengths and weaknesses.

  • Mo replied 9 years ago

    Not to hijack, but Kelly, closet couture looks about like this:

    I am stuck trying to save this look, but it gives you an idea of how the site looks/works. You have your items uploaded in your 'closet' and build outfits with them kind of like Polyvore. But I like that here I can put in my own pics of my stuff and see exactly what it will look like. Guess that is like Stylebook from what I've heard, but not having a smart phone, I've never seen how it works firsthand.

    Cute outfit! That would be fun for Spring/Summer and different from your other outfits. (I followed you, too)

  • Meredith1953 replied 9 years ago

    Thanks everyone! I really appreciate the feedback. I am enjoying putting together outfits and I see this as a very valuable tool for both my existing wardrobe but also future purchases or trying new looks.
    I will follow you too!
    I got an outfit to save using Firefox so it was Internet Exploder (err....Explorer) that was the problem. Did you try Chrome yet? Also, I have a smartphone but it is Android and Stylebook doesn't have an app for Android yet, just the Iphones and Ipads which I don't want to purchase. I'll just have to wait for the Android app, but I am patient that way.

    Great outfit Meredith! Loving all the different polyvore incarnations.

  • ManidipaM replied 9 years ago

    ooh,you have to try that on Meredith! I'm actually wondering about adding your green jacket to the mix!

  • Astrid replied 9 years ago

    Lovely outfit! I'm new to Pinterest and I really like it, it's so much fun!

  • Meredith1953 replied 9 years ago

    I have almost convinced my self to purchase the outfit in this photo and ManidipaM that is a great suggestion about the green jacket. It just might work really nicely! I might try the cream jacket as well.

  • seattleattic replied 9 years ago

    Wow, what a great color combination. I love the print on the blouse and the bottoms are gorgeous. Let us know what you end up doing!
