The Scene
Woke up early and went to workout before work today. Haven't managed that since May. A+ for me.

F for Mr. Diabolina who is sicker than a dog. Ugh. Went to the doctor today. Hoping he is OK for The Rose Bowl on New Year's Day.



The Outfit
Banana Republic tank
Thrifted vest
Robert Rodriguez pants
Vintage trench coat

The Accessories
Marc by Marc Jacobs earrings
Forever 21 bracelet
Chanel bag
Me&Ro necklace
Dolce and Gabbana pumps

The Grade
B-






The Commentary

Built the outfit around my glorious new leopard print pumps. $160 at Saks. Total steal since I will be able to wear them for infinity and beyond.
Didn't take them off tonight until I absolutely had to


Love the purrfect print. And the arch of the heel. And that rounded toe - makes my feets look like little paws.





Thought I'd have leopard flats before pumps. Leopard flats are just the right dash of functional sass.



Leopard heels - on the other hand - are quite the sex kitten statement.






Wedges would be a nice in between.




But boots I could never pull off. Though I do love that flash of red ;)









The new cropped pants were the perfect length to showcase the heels today. I think I am going to live in these pants in 2009. So comfortable and fresh and Euro.



The masculinity of the vest was my attempt to balance the feminity of the heels. The result? Yummy mummy.










The wayfarers and AH-mazing hair helped.

Felt like I should be in London, strolling Portobello Road with a guy in skinny gray jeans and fedora.




Here are some leopard looks floating around my head today



This D&G dress. One of my all time faves - sweetly seductive



Leopard tights. I have a pair I bought for a bachelorette party five years ago but have never worn. 2009 may be the year.







Dramatic leopard coat. Can't wait to don my new one as a dress a la Gwen.



Or pair it with pants ala la Zoe.







What do you think about leopard with leopard?



Complete head to toe leopard would be BANANAS. But shoes and a dress could work depending on the print.





LOOOOVE this Valentino clutch for evening.


And the YSL Muse for day.






Cannot get enough of LV's red leopard print.


This spring I'll try white with leopard print.



It'd be a whole lotta look but 2009 will be all about pure, unadultarated fabulosity. I promise ;)

Love the rounded toe. It makes the shoe.

The only leopard I have are my oh-so-high, oh-so-pointy Stuart Weitzman. Monkey Klutz wobbles in them but gets lots of compliments notwithstanding.

I can't believe I have to work today. Bah.

Why only a B-? I like this outfit, although is the tank actually the brown color that's in the photo, or is it more black? And I now am thinking I'll have to keep my eye out for leopard print during this weekend's trip to the post-Christmas sales!

Head-to-toe leopard got me tagged by the fashion police but I'd do it again! Adore your shoes.

I love your heels....I have leopard flats and wedges....but now i'll have to get heels too...you hair looks amazing!

I have leopard sex kitten heals that I've never worn. I bought them when I was on maternity leave. I think I needed a heavy dose of sexy! Unfortunately, I forgot how to walk in stilettos during my 9 months of pregnancy.

I think you may have inspired me to try them with an all black outfit.

Happy New Year!!
