Atlantic-Pacific’s ‘Look for Less’ ~A ‘Creme de la Creme’ DIY

In the world of fashion blogging, everyone has their faves and one of mine (and maybe yours too) is Blair of Atlantic-Pacific. She always looks soo classy, unique and styled perfectly in her outfits. While there’s some TopShop, H&M, and ASOS sprinkled into her ensembles; by the time I could afford many of her outfits & accessories it would be a few seasons later. 🙂

Last week, she debuted a really cute casual “Creme de la Creme” cotton-blend sweatshirt with a pair of denim and leopard heels. When I clicked on the sweatshirt by Zoe Karssen, not only was it sold out already, it was $160. Knowing that even a million dollar sweatshirt would end up in my ‘gym clothes’ drawer within a month, I thought Hmm, maybe I could re-create it?‘ So I made a knock-off, threw on a pair of jeans, brushed my bangs back and tried my best. While it’s definitely not the original, here’s my ‘Creme De La Creme’ DIY below attempting to create Atlantic-Pacific’s ‘Look for Less’….

Super Quick Messy Bun ~ Brush your hair into a high ponytail, tease it and swirl into a bun. Then bobby pin it & hairspray in place. 
Unexpectedly Clutch ~ It’s not vintage, but sometimes it’s fun to choose a beaded, leather or sparkly clutch and pair it with a casual outfit. (TJMaxx)
Buzzin’ ~ I only drink coffee a few days a week; but when I do, it’s a Greater Alarm at Philz Coffee with meduim creme & sugar. (SF Tip) ~ If you’re visiting the city, try to grab a cup of Philz. They’re famous for brewing one cup at a time and you’ll feel the difference in about 3 sips. 🙂
Step One ~ Find similar sweatshirt (recent from Forever 21~$13) , Buy ‘Iron On’ flocked letters in similar font and start cutting. (These letters are a brand called Transfermations I got in Michael’s Craft Store)
Step Two ~ Lay out the letters, space them as best you can and iron them as directed
Step Three ~ Wait for letters to cool and peel off. Entire process took about 20 minutes.
Sweatshirt~ Forever (similar here), iron-on letters ~ Michaels Crafts, clutch~NY MAX (recent TJMaxx), jeans ~ GAP (similar here) (old from Crossroads Trading Co.), heels ~ Zara (old), Vitality Necklace ~ Stella & Dot HERE, sunglasses ~ H&M, Nails ~ Sally Hansen Insta Dri  *Total for Entire Look (Under $160)

Are you ever inspired to re-create a look after seeing it on your favorite celebs, fashion bloggers or friends? 🙂

Hope you’re having a great week!

  1. […] ¡Bienvenida primavera! Teníamos demasiadas ganas de sol pero teniendo en cuenta lo cambiante del clima en esta estación no podemos confiarnos y aligerar de golpe las capas de ropa por lo que pueda pasar. Una prenda primaveral donde las haya que además de cálida puede resultar chic es la sudadera. Para rescatar aquellas típicas grises relegadas a ropa de andar por casa, he aquí algunas ideas DIY. Unas hombreras de cuero como las de All those other kids darán el acento rockero. También podemos convertirla en asimétrica según este tutorial fácil y efectivo de Quality Rivets o convertirla en blazer e incluso añadir cremalleras como hace A Pare and Spare. Si queremos lanzarnos a dibujos o mensajes las posibilidades son infinitas: labios de Wobisobi, indirecta de Savvy Spice. […]
