I‘ve mentioned before that Atlantic-Pacific is one of my favorite style bloggers so when she posts a look that I love, I instantly wonder if I can create a similar style with budget-friendly fashion. In 2012, I showed a DIY Creme de la Creme and last year an ‘On the Go‘ look-for-less in Munich.
Her recent look ‘party palm‘ reminded me of a dress I bought last summer and featured in a post called ‘Primal Prints,’ so I can wait to test it again on a summer vacay while sipping a Mai Tai. I loved her take on the simple tropical styling and here’s my top tricks for re-creating your own palm print party dress later this summer…
DIY ~ The key to achieving a ‘Glam in Miami’ look is finding a dress with emerald green prints, then adding gold jewelry like a chain necklace which is striking and gives an instant ‘Versace’ vibe. Radiant orchid – the 2014 ‘it’ color – compliments emerald green as well. (pic on the right via)
This entire look can be put together for a fraction of the price of the Just Cavalli dress. Plus, when it comes to vacation-wear; I try to spend the bare minimum after losing clothes or having them ruined by fake tanning spills in my suitcase.
