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.
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.
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, Looklet.com and this was the result. I love this site.
Portmans: up to 50% off select lines.
Max Fashions: 30% off pants, jeans, knitwear and coats. They also have a selection of casual dresses at $79.
Sussan has a general sale on.
Pop into these shops for a bargain. I have checked them all out and as well as the sale items, they have great winter ranges with new stock arriving all the time. In my experience, some of the better items disappear quickly and then there could be a long wait for them to restock, if they do at all. I often buy the basics during the sales and then build the rest of my wardrobe with specific purchases from Trademe to create an individual look.
