Channeling a Jumpsuit Favorite

For over a year now, I've held on tight to this image ripped from 
InStyle magazine, aka my style Bible, 
as it's been pinned front and center to my inspiration board.
Olivia Wilde was nothing short of stunning in this sleek and modern 
Gucci jumpsuit paired with a House of Lavande 
gold neck plate and strappy black sandals.

I recently visited a super stylish friend, and what do you know, 
she had this very image pinned to the back wall of her closet.  
Furthermore, she was one step ahead of me in recreating the ensemble
with the top and pants already stowed away in her wardrobe. 
How kind of her to help facilitate my fix.

The red sash, belonging to my Grandmother, 
is a familiar piece to both my wardrobe and the Queen City Style.
I thought I had worn it every which way, until now.
Not to be too copy-catty, 
but I couldn't resist styling this favorite accessory just so.

I've been drooling over the Stella & Dot Pegasus Necklace 
since I hosted a party a few months ago.  
I finally placed the order for my reward, and I could not LUV it more.
Made entirely by hand, the feathers of gold are so light and airy.

Blouse: Diane von Furstenberg, similar one here,
Tapered Pants: Vince, here is a pair,
Necklace: Stella & Dot, Purse: Chanel, 
Earrings: old, but here is a pair I absolutely adore,
Shoes: Mine are Calvin Klein (old), but here is a pair similar to Olivia's.
I'm telling you, if you do nothing else, get these pants.
They made me feel like a gazillion Ben's.
Of course, I'm pretty mad over the necklace too.

Do you have a favorite look you would love to channel?
If so, I would love to help you achieve that sought after look!
