Today’s Inspiration Monday from Two Birds is finally someone I actually know!  Well, I mean, I don’t know her personally but at least I’ve seen at least one movie she was in.

Original Inspiration: Elizabeth Hurley

Ms. Hurley is wearing something that is very on-trend right now:  velvet.  Which just reminds me of the black velvet pants I had in high school.  I don’t currently have anything velvet in my closet so I just went with the color scheme here and stuck with black and grays.

Although, to be honest, I could have worn jeans today.  I’m not in the office (took a vacation day) but I still wanted to show you how to take a casual inspiration photo and make it work appropriate.

Also, don’t forget about my contest to win a $50 Visa gift card!  Two comments before November 22nd as well as helping me hit either 100 Facebook likes or 200 pageviews a day for at least 5 days.  For your reference, here are the stats so far:

Facebook Likes: 65

Days with pageviews over 200: 2

Thanks for your help, everyone!

And thanks again to Molly for taking my outfit photos this week!  We took them all on an abnormally warm (and windy) Sunday so if I seem underdressed for current Chicago conditions that’s why.
