Channeling Emma Pillsbury

I have a challenge in front of me folks.  I need an Emma Pillsbury worthy outfit for my birthday party!

Most of my "outfits" involve a solid colored top and pants, so creating a "look" with pieces that didn't all come from the same rack is simply beyond me.  For a little help in that department, I went directly to my new favorite fashion blog, What Would Emma Pillsbury Wear.  These gals have it going on!  I love the Polyvore deliciousness that readers enter into the WWEPW Fashion Challenges.  Talk about genius! They looked so much fun that I decided to try it. Check out my first Polyvore below!

I studied the blog and figured out that I already own a polka dot dress (that I've never worn) and a couple pair of heels that could totally work.  Whew!  What a relief! I don't actually have to start from scratch. Now, I need to find a cardigan and some Emmaccessories.

This is the look I'm going for.  I have everything but the necklace, earrings and sweater. The whole outfit hinges on the red sweater. I think that more than the other pieces, it really makes the whole ensemble Emmalicious. Without it, it's just not Emma.   Forever 21 has it online so I hope it is still in stores.  Wish me luck!
