Congratulations Mia Heckendorf, you’re InStyle.com’s Reader of the Week! Mia Heckendorf of Cary, North Carolina made a bold statement in a modern-day ballerina style tulle skirt inspired by the gowns in our September issue’s “The Look.” Angie exclusively explained to InStyle.com, “As a girl who isn’t afraid to try something new, I knew I had to put my own spin on the elegant gowns in “Dance With Me” from your amazing, fashion-forward September issue. I chose to contrast a lighter white skirt with a striped blouse for a more daytime-appropriate, but still super-feminine look.” Check out Mia and our other inspired by InStyle looks in December’s Jennifer Lawrence-covered issue or download it on your tablet.
