today i'm inspired by... vogue straight talking shoot

I was reading Vogue's February issue today and came across this shoot from the 'More Dash Than Cash' feature, entitled Straight Talking. I love it because it shows that cheaper clothes can look just as beautiful as their more expensive counterparts when styled in the right way. I also really love the colour combinations in this shoot, and the way chiffon is used to soften up what might otherwise be overly sporty looks. The combination of an indigo tee with a black chiffon skirt and pink and grey heels in the third shot, for example, is brilliantly inventive but looks completely effortless. My favourite styling idea, though, is the cropped silk shirt layered over the mesh body: divine.
