Here's Oscar doing the same skirt in a blue/cream scribble plaid with the same short cardigan jacket/twinset look ($3,530 plus tax).
So what do I have to knock off these looks? I bought this light beige cotton/linen/silk skirt by contemporary designer, Robert Rodriguez from, a TNT eBay seller few years ago. Take a look at his modern, clever designs for for ideas and inspiration to add to your sewing. His skirt is the same shape, length - same panels, same channel top stitching on the ties and the hem silhouette as these two Oscar skirts. I have a camel lambskin pencil skirt in that looks great with many tops and jackets in fall and winter. Oscar also paired the short cardigan with high waisted pants ($3,530) -- got it covered. In my closet is this cotton sweater by Vera Wang for Kohl's that I bought because I liked the neutral splatter effect. This coffee brown rayon jersey tank with a sheer insert and embellishment at the neck was the same season as the cotton cardigan, and has the look of the Oscar $2000 top. I enjoy wearing them with a lot of things, including this Shapes Nine Lives Vest/top/jacket, and it looks like his styling under the cardigan. So here's me wearing "the look" interpreted for spring/summer that, as I recall, cost under $60 for all 3 pieces. Same tops work with a number of my slacks. Who's copying whom? In fashion what comes around, goes around, especially classic shapes and colors.

Terri's BLT impossible pie recipe:
Place the following in a large pyrex pie plate lightly greased with olive oil:
(quantities, salt and fat content are your choice)
- quality turkey bacon cooked and broken into pieces (I use Applegate brand)
- ripe tomatoes cut into slices to cover bottom
- low fat swiss cheese thinly sliced and cut into ribbons – (about half cup)
- one cup chopped fresh spinach (if you don't use the creamed spinach below
Blend the following ingredients in a blender for two minutes and pour over the above:
½ cup all purpose baking mix (can also use a gluten free mix)
1 serving (approx one cup) defrosted Tabatchnik frozen creamed spinach (this is the lettuce part and this brand has onions and seasonings in it)
1 cup milk (2 cups when using chopped spinach)
4 large eggs
your favorite seasonings and salt/pepper if desired
* if you like the taste of mayonnaise, add about 1/3 cup to the blender mixture
Note: whatever you use in the blender, you need two cups liquid with the 4 eggs - lower amt of milk when adding mayonnaise
Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 55 minutes. Note: I turn the temp up to 375 and cover for the last ten minutes when these have a lot of liquid like the tomatoes. It's done when a knife inserted comes out clean. Let it sit for about 10 minutes before cutting, It's even pretty to look at. Enjoy a slice!
