Forever 21 butterfly sleeve leopard top
Theory gray slacks
Vintage black wool coat
Dior black spike heels
Marc Jacobs black Sophia shoulder bag
Was going to wear the top, tights and shoes with a gray mini skirt but it felt over the top. Realized that it would make the Web geeks' heads explode. I forgot for a second that I am not Carrie and there is no Sex in the Simi Valley. Wah.
So opted for the slacks. The palette ended up TOO gray, me thinks. Boo. Felt a bit washed out. Maybe a light colored trench would have helped? Not sure. This weather has beaten me... officially. I feel like half the fashionista I normally am.
Do LOVE this top. I bought it for my delicious trip last October to visit my Jean Bean in NYC. She was surprised that I got it at Forever 21. The drape and subtle animal pattern definitely make it look expensive-ish. And the material is heavenly. Super soft. Like a fine gauge.
Just visited the Forever 21 site to see if there's anything like it right now.
This top has a similar shape but the pattern isn't as dreamy and not sure about the tie situation.
I keep spying this sweater every time I go into a store. The print looks chic and clean. Animal prints are notoriously tough to get just right. They can look cheap (read: inexpensive and/or tawdry) even when they are high end designer. Dolce&Gabana do the best leopard in my opinion.
Don't NEED this sweater so have refrained. But am now thinking it could look really fab layered with some bold jewel tones, black jeans and my Chanel. Hmmm, maybe I should get it...
Oh and I found my pleated collar, cream/beige top that you all loved for sale online. Mine didn't have that bow pinned on but I think it can be removed if it's too much for you. I kinda dig it.
Get it, get it, get it NOW!!!
p.s. I wore my pointy-toed Diors today in honor of M.'s flashy D glasses. Not used to wearing tights with heels and pants. Kinda weird but kinda cool too. Ala Wicked's Elphaba aka The Wicked Witch of the West. Phabulous!
