Welcome back to the real world!  Or, at least, back to work for those of us who have been off for the Thanksgiving holiday.  Going back to work is always such a rude awakening after several days off which is why I’m thrilled that Mondays mean Inspiration Monday from Two Birds!  Usually this makes it easy to figure out what to wear.  Although, I admit, I struggled a bit with this week’s ultra casual choice of plaid and denim.

Original Inspiration: Mary Kate Olsen

Which means you’re probably looking at my black and white outfit and wondering how in the world the two are related.  Well, here’s how:  oversized shirt over tight pants?  Yep.  Booties?  Yep.  A black accessory (mine’s in the form of a jacket)?  Yep.  Sunglasses?  Got ‘em.

There you go.  One inspired outfit that looks nothing like the original.

And with that out of the way, how about I announce the winner of the $50 Visa Gift Card giveaway?

Thanks to all of you, Loop Looks got over 200 page views for 5 days out of the past two weeks.  Which means that anyone who left at least two comments over the past two weeks gets one entry per comment into the drawing.  And everyone who likes Loop Looks on Facebook gets an additional entry.  So….drumroll please….

The winner is: Katie at An Alaskan Weredork: A Style Diary!

Hooray, Katie!  I’ll be contacting you shortly to get you your prize.

Thanks to everyone who helped spread the word about Loop Looks.  Keep it up!

    What? Wow, I never win stuff, I’m pretty unlucky that way. Thank you, that’s really fun and exciting!

    I really like your takes on this Inspiration Monday looks and your thought process on them. Your version of this looks is so pretty, I think I like it more than the plaid! (And goodness knows that I love me some plaid.) This gorgeous loose blouse is stunning with the tweed jacket and it looks so polished with the black pants and booties. The gray wrap bracelet is so pretty, it softens up all of the black and just wow. Yeah, I really can’t say enough nice things about this, I think this is one of my very favorites, its so chic looking!

    And once again, thank you! I’ve got this huge smile on my face right now, this just perked up my whole day. Thank you dear! (And congratulations on the page views!)

    So sleek, and such a great contrast of textures (flowy, woven, streamlined, etc.)! By the way, I absolutely love your watch – I’m a huge fan of asymmetrical designs!
