Last year Kate Spade came out with a cardigan that I just gasped over when I saw it. It is the Kate Spade Bumble Bee Sweater.
Grosgrain and Little Nashua.
Here is my take on it. I bought a black cardigan off the sale rack at JCPenney. It has the prettiest rhinestone buttons on it. As soon as I saw it I knew it would be perfect for the knockoff. I bought an sequin applique bee off ebay and ironed it on.

Here is how I wore it to work today. I made this skirt before I ever started blogging. It is a lightweight polyester material with a raised design in it. I don't even remember the pattern I used. The polka dot tights are from F21 and the Mary Janes are from Payless.
As I recall the Kate Spade sweater was $350ish (correct me if I am wrong) and mine cost less than $20. Talk about instant gratification.
Have a Great Day!!!
