Fakin' Missoni

Hey Ladies,

How many of you are dying to get your hands on some Missoni brand for Target this week? Starting Tuesday, the legendary, Italian knitwear company will launch another, fashion-meets-cheap-chic line at the low priced, giant. And we here at SHS are always on the prowl for a bargain!
In anticipation of this latest launch, I threw on another frugal, find that reminded me in no small part of those iconic, Missoni striped shirts.The piece was loose and lovely, and was also Italian silk, (though NOT Missoni)...
Can you believe this was procured for 1$? I'd held on to it all summer, waiting for the right swingy, silk skirt to push it on into fall. Alas, LA nights do stay nippy. Especially now that September is in full swing. So I thought I'd throw it on with some skinny jeans and make it comfy casual. Here's my take on applying fakey, designer stripes for a retro-finish.
 Step 1: Throw on some extra large, 70's shades...
 Step 2: Add retro-70's heels. (For me, it's my handy Seychelles with the chunky heel).
Step 3: Throw in hoops and Moroccan inspired bangles. Buff out lips with nude gloss.
 Step 4:  Sweep hair into high pony and wrap a section of hair around the elastic. Secure with bobby pin.
 Step 5: Combine with darkest denim. When I'm sick of my skinnies, I'll tuck in the shirt's length and wear it with high waisted, bell bottom flares. For now, the narrow leg will balance out the caftan-like cut.
Add fringey, hobo bag and stir. Then get in line and await the door's opening at Target this Tuesday for a run on the real thing!
Happy shopping!

  1. That is a great top! I'm really excited for Missoni to hit Target - I've been online stalking that open cardigan/poncho thing and the shorts. Can't wait!
