The Runway vs. the Real Way: Brooklyn Blonde and Oscar de la Renta
We spotted this neutral-toned, light sweater and metallic maxi skirt combo on the runway at the Oscar de la Renta Resort 2013 show, and instantly fell in love. Dressed up or down, outfit is the perfect combination of casual and chic. 
Helena of Brooklyn Blonde recreated a look strikingly similar to the Oscar de la Renta, but much more affordable, using pieces from her own closet. A straw Panama hat is the perfect addition for daytime.
