From The Glamourai to Portmans

For a while now I have been following a fellow fashion blogger called The Glamourai and yesterday I saw that she had partnered with Portmans to model some of their latest range. I have chosen the outfit I covet the most and you can go to the Portmans website to find the individual garments. Then I have found garments on Trademe to recreate a version of the outfit. Recreating it exactly would be impossible but the idea is the same. Here we go.

Find the garments at these links: Jacket, Top, Scarf, Pants, Shoes.

As a bonus I have put together one of the other looks that Kelly Framel from The Glamourai wore. This comes in a close second.

I have chosen another picture from The Sartorialist blog to recreate using first garments from Trademe and then from local shops.

You can find these garments for auction here: shirt, jacket, boots, hat .

The hat is from Dotti, the blouse from Ezibuy, the jacket from Portmans, the boots from Overland, the ring from Sussan and the earrings from Storm.

I then created it in that online site I have mentioned, and this was the result. I love this site.

Create this Look – Fashion in a Capsule

The website, The Sartorialist, shows photos of people snapped in the streets of the world’s main cities. This is a recent one which caught my eye. I have recreated this look first from garments up for auction on Trademe and then from shops near you. I couldn’t find a cream voile skirt on Trademe so pink it is. For variety I changed all the colours for the shop outfit.

Here are the links from Trademe: Blazer, Skirt, bag, boots.
