Going "wild" with Leopards.....

I used to think that any leopard prints is just too "old-fashioned" for my liking.  Maybe I just happen to see so many older ladies here wearing leopard prints which made me feel that way.

But I completely changed my mind when I see so many fashionable models wearing leopard prints on the runway, which is the actually the trend for fall.  Now I have all kinds of leopard prints.....scarves, tops, shoes, socks etc....:P 

So, I want to share with you 2 ensembles today which feature LEOPARD prints.....hope you like them.

My ODJ:
****************************************************************
TOP:
- French Connection gray leopard tunic with extra wide bat sleeves

BOTTOM:
- Vertical Club black fitted pants

BAG:
- Miu Miu Bow Satchel in Amarena color w/ silver hw


SHOES:
- Zara gray long boots with multiple side buckle details

ACCESSORIES:
- Scarf: French Connection purple long wool scarf
- RingChanel 08A black&white ring from the "Le Duc" collection

- Earrings: Gray floral dangling earrings with beads (no brand - bought from a local shop)
- Sunglasses: Tom Ford "Jaquelin" black/orange rim sunglasses with brown gradient lens

****************************************************************
I want to keep this outfit simple because the emphasis is on the extra wide bat sleeves.  So I didn't add any layering at all, except for the extra long purple wool scarf.  I chose the purple color to give a bit of contrast to the dull colors of black and gray.  Purple goes very nice with gray and black.

 
 
 

Here are some close-up pictures of my Miu Miu Bow satchel....
 (I bought it last year from Saks but have never carried it till now.....:P  This is actually my only Miu Miu in my entire bag collection.)
 
Love the rich purplish-pink color of this bag...


And the side bows are just too cute...

  5. Hi Purse Addict! Thanks! Yes yes, please add this taupe caviar to your wishlist! It's really a great versatile color, I love that it's with a pinkish-beige tone, not too yellow not too beige. Just right for a neutral bag. It actually kind of resembles the color of the 08 prefall goatskin camel patent flap, but more pinkish. :D Just left a comment on your blog too!

    Hi Julia, thanks! Which Miu Miu bag do you have in your collection BTW? Oh those CL heels are actually called "Gabin". They look like Very Prive, but the platform is thicker and heel height is higher at 140mm. :D Can't wait to see your new shoe loot too!

    ***********************************************
    Hi Pearl! Thanks so much for your compliments! It's really encouraging. :D I must read your post about the history of Chanel 2.55 February 1955 later. Thanks for stopping by and have a great week too!
