When I first layed eyes on the outfit sported by Marissa Webb, J Crew's head of womenswear, in the post, "Behind the Seams" on J Crew Aficionada, I was in love! However, I believe the sweater she is wearing is Michael Kors and I don't have $1,200 to drop on a sweater. So, imagine my surprise when "kittywitty" one of my polyvore buddies, posted a set with a perfect and cost efficient alternative from Old Navy.
In order to achieve the Marissa Webb look, I added my check shirt underneath and layered my necklaces in the same fashion. I thought it turned out really cute! However, I did have one co-worker give me a side-ways glance and say, "Stripes with checks, I would never wear that." So, I don't know if I missed the mark or if its just too fashion forward for this group. Nevertheless, I LIKE it! :o)
