i’ve had the Marni Spring 2013 ready-to-wear collection bumbling around in my mental style files for quite some time. it was one of those perfect collections that spoke to the pattern-lover in me and ever since i’ve been searching for affordable versions akin to the Marni frocks.
this top from Forever 21, while not an exact replication (because we all know that is wrong) draws from that same inspiration. i like it because its a lttle sixties, a little seventies, a little cowboy. accented with simple jeans, shoes and accessories, the shirt has a simplicity but statement effect to it. xoxo.
