Selma Blair is one of those fashionable ladies whose style I adore, but recognize that I can’t come close to recreating most the looks she puts together (like this and this). Her latest appearance on MTV’s TRL was a perfect example, when she wore an Unhee black romper and Roger Vivier heels that just oozed 20′s appeal. Since I certainly can’t pull off the entire ensemble with the same ease and grace, I picked my favorite part of the outfit, her balloon sleeves, and made it my own.
At a recent Built by Wendy sample sale, I swiped up this three-tiered poufy-sleeved dress. Though I was initially apprehensive about adding any extra width to my build, I quickly learned to love how the wider shoulders create the illusion of a smaller waist. Since I was conscious of looking too dainty in this confection-like dress, I paired it with some rugged boots to toughen it up a bit.
