    Gorgeous! I notice you even have the pose pretty close!

    Cute! Love the inspiration and your interpretation.

    Nice interpretation! Black IS a Spring color (that's what I told my hubby Tuesday) but your orangey - spicey toned skirt punches it up.

    Wow! What an ambitious copycat project, and how beautifully executed!! Love it, and so happy to see my beaded top thriving in its new home! (I'm wearing your pants today, BTW!) You have such a beautiful individual style, Rae!

    Very nice! Your copycat is true to the original and to your style.

  • goldenpig replied 9 years ago

    Great copy, I like yours even better than the original! I never get tired of seeing you in that fabulous copper skirt!

  • catgirl replied 9 years ago

    Wow, what a great inspiration photo! How amazing to have the right pieces for it. You've captured the essence but added your own Rae-ness to it too with your hair and smile!

    Nicely done! Love the boots without house in this outfit, makes the outfit for me!

  • Jonesy replied 9 years ago

    This looks fab! I'm sure your black overcoat only upped the fab quotient even further!

  • shevia replied 9 years ago

    Wow, I think you upped the inspiration picture. Great job!

  • Ana replied 9 years ago

    Ooh, Rae! This looks fabulous! Your interpretation is true to the spirit but definitely you. Also, this rust colored dress is awesome on you!

    I'm really enjoying this internet/copycat-inspiration challenge and seeing everyone's entries. Great job!
