What Do You Wear With Leapord Print Pants?


I scored a fabulous pair of vintage Blumarine leopard print pants (that will be listed in my Etsy shop soon), and it got me thinking; Just what do you wear with leapord print pants? Any suggestions?

Couture Sweatpants

Seen on the runways and in the shops; Sweatpant trousers.
 I love this trend. Here's my take on it.
1. You take a thrifted pair of Hanes gray sweatpants size small so the legs are on the tighter side.
2. Add some flare to make them more "trouser" like. In this case I added zippers at the bottoms and a drawstring bow tie waist and a pocket on the bum.
3. Wear like a pair of pants or jeans.

Hunger for Ungaro

I have recently started hunting for vintage Emanuel Ungaro pieces online. Perhaps it's my age or the fact that my style is starting to grow up, just a tad, but those silky prints have proven to be irresistible. I love love the 2 sided striped blazer from the Spring 2010 collection.

Who is Your Celeb Look Alike?

I love my celeb look alike, whom I've been told is Sophie Dahl. She is the grandaughter of Rauld Dahl the auther of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, among many others favorites. Sophie has been a skinny model, a plus size model, an author, and now a chef with a new cookbook out.

Here is me:

Age 3 and in Heels

This is Suri Cruise at age 3 and already wearing higher heels then me. In my opinion, and I'm speaking from experience here, I think that wearing heels this young gets you on the fast track to bunions and hammer toes. What do you think?

POMPLAMOOSE!

For all you lovers of vintage music, check out this version of Mr. Sandman by musical duo, Pomplamoose. They became famous on YouTube for they creative covers, as well as a few of their own tunes. They are singing the oldies but are so modern and enviromental by not printing CDs but are download only. LOVE them!
