I'm so excited to post my first installment of a new series called "THE CURVY COPYCAT". These installments will include designer looks re-created and rocked by yours truly. As we know, popular designers for brands like Burberry, Prada, Gucci, etc. don't make their items in plus sizes. Many don't make their items for anyone over a size 8. This is mind boggling considering the fact that the average woman is a size 14!
My first installment was inspired by the designer luxury brand "LANVIN". The insect embellishments, Mr. T. like layered necklaces and beautiful brooches pricked my fashion heart.
I searched high and low for insect brooches and pins but every single one that I wanted was in the price range of about $40. Could you imagine the cost to get several! Umm, no way! I decided to DIY all of my accessories. I had so much fun tapping into my creative side! ;-)
Here's my look....

Layered Necklace: Vintage St. John Belt
Heart "YOU" Pendant: DIY
Butterfly Brooches: DIY

I'm already working on my next installment!
