Re-Engineered: Fossil

5 Aug

I don’t know about you, but I am currently drooling over Fossil’s lookbook.  The knee high socks / boots, brightly colored tights, and mix of feminine details within structured styles are right up my alley.  It’s giving me a lot of inspiration for this fall when I can actually wear tights and knee high boots again!  So to combat the current 100+ degree days that I will be battling for the next couple months, here’s what I’m dreaming about:


Total Cost Excluding Watch: $292

I came up with a couple interpretations of this outfit (depending on how daring you want to be!) so I hope you are inspired as well.  If I were to splurge on one of the Fossil items, it would be the shoes.  Oh, the shoes.  They are so lovely.  But I know you’re not all as crazy about shoes as I am, so I’ll give you alternatives that are a bit less expensive.

Look #1

Abstract Dress (F21): $24.80

Sweater (J.Crew): $29.99

Tights (Bare Necessities): $13.50

Ankle Boots (Blowfish): $39.00

Necklace (F21): $2.80

 TOTAL: $110.09

Look #2

Ikat Dress (F21): $19.80

Sweater (J.Crew): $29.99

Tights (Nordstrom): $11.00

Ankle Bootie (Me Too – DSW): $34.94

Gold Necklace (F21): $2.80

TOTAL: $98.53

What do you think?  Would you wear this style?  What’s your favorite look from the Fossil lookbook?  I’m planning to re-engineer a few more outfits, so I’d love to hear your input!

    I love the shoes and black tights in look #2, so I vote for that one. I just wish I wasn’t too old to struck around in this fabulous look! Jenni, you inspire me to take more time in dressing and to try new clothing combinations.
