Looking around: Alice + Olivia

Inspiration abounds. Two staples and a frou-frou dress that’s not *too* fancy. I don’t have the approximatly $350 a piece though, so I wonder how I could approximate them myself?

This vintage Vogue might get at the shape of this cocoon top above. It’s short still but could lengthen.

The white underdress looks pretty simple: tank top attached to skirt. Like this maybe?

The overdress in gray silk (chiffon?) has more complicated sleeves which I’ve seen in a vintage Vogue pattern from my stash.

Then this infinity knit cardigan. Remains a mystery still.

I’ve bought Alice + Olivia patterns before and love them. Wore one of their skirt patterns in three or four versions one summer. Unrelated: Might have eye now on this dress.
