Diana Inspired: ETA photos!

I just realized that I have 3 Diana inspired outfits. If I have posted these before, please overlook. The third one is a warmer weather version of Diana's outfit and what I am wearing today.
(The photos I'm trying to post all fail. These are Diana's outfits.)
ETA: still not loading. :(
Brooklyn! Success...I think.

    What a pity! Can you do something?

  • Joy replied 1 year ago

    I keep trying but get the same failure message

  • Jenn replied 1 year ago

    That was happening to me a few days ago, Joy. I ended up having to post from my phone.

  • Joy replied 1 year ago

    I will try that, Jenn. Thanks.

  • Diana replied 1 year ago

    I want to see! I hope you get the photo uploading sorted soon. And I'm very flattered to be copied!

  • Joy replied 1 year ago

    Jenn, they will not load from my iPhone and they always have before. I still get a "failed" message. I'm sorry and baffled.
    Diana, my outfits are very poor copies of yours, but I have enjoyed them.

    How are you going into YLF? I had this problem when I was using a "frequently visited sites" link on my phone to get to YLF. When I went in through a Google search, it rectified itself.

  • Joy replied 1 year ago

    Thank you, Brooklyn! That worked I hope.

    Nicely done, Joy! I find both of you inspiring.  am especially impressed that you can come up with outfits that look like some of Diana's, since I've always considered her style unique. I guess we don't have to have the hand-knit wardrobe to capture the feel of some outfits, after all!

  • Joy replied 1 year ago

    Yes, Firecracker, I so wish I had a wardrobe of Diana's beautiful hand knits and your unique and lovely "made by me" pieces! The purple knit is an EF cardigan from a consignment shop that has a hand knit look and feel.

  • Brooklyn replied 1 year ago

    Yay! Worth the effort Joy. What a fabulous homage. I like how you have taken Diana's outfits but given them your own style. Especially on the last outfit - it is quite similar to Diana's but the different shoes and more structured bag really change the vibe of the outfit. 

  • Mirjana replied 1 year ago

    Nicely done. I especially like #7, cobalt blue blazer and animal print top, I am fun of cobalt blue so I love all with that color.

  • Ledonna N. replied 1 year ago

    Very well done and so great when you can get inspiration from one another.

    4&7 you have hit it out of the park.

  • Summer replied 1 year ago

    Lovely, Joy.  Outfit 7 is stunning on you.

  • Diana replied 1 year ago

    Yay, pictures! I really like your interpretation of all of these, Joy! #4 is a really close copy, wow. And I love the more feminine/refined takes on the other two. #7 is my fave. Love it with the soft blouse and delicate footwear. (I'm glad you can wear the delicate shoes that I can't!)

    Thank you all!
    Brooklyn, thank you for your help and coming back to comment. It has turned colder with chance of snow, so I may revisit this outfit and use booties like Diana did. I don't have an unstructured black bag though.
    Mirjana, I like cobalt and, in my former town, wore it to baseball games where the color is Royal blue. Diana showed me a new way to wear this jacket
    Ledonna, yes, getting inspiration from each other is one of the great advantages of the Forum.
    Summer, that is probably my favorite of this lot. The purple did not feel very successful as I do not have a floral top that looks as good with the sweater as Diana's does.

  • Angie replied 1 year ago

    HAH. Fun that you're inspired by Diana, Joy. You BOTH look fab. 

  • Runcarla replied 1 year ago

    How fun!  Well done of you both.  #2/#6 are particularly 'Spring' like.  Thanks (both of you) for posting your outfits in WIW.

  • Joy replied 1 year ago

    Diana! We must have cross posted. I am thrilled that you approve. I need refined shoes as my feet are big for my size and can look huge in the wrong style.

  • JAileen replied 1 year ago

    These are really fun to see. You both look great and so similar, yet distinctive in certain details, too.

  • Joy replied 1 year ago

    Angie and Carla, Diana makes a lovely and creative muse, doesn't she.
    I bought that lavender cardigan especially for my cold spring capsule and have enjoyed it's color and cozy warmth. This area seems to have cold spring that goes on and on. Back to freezing temperatures and possible snow after a few warm days. Back to the woolies.
    JAileen, thank you. Yes, i could not copy Diana's beautiful outfits but used the inspiration to shop the closet.
