Do or don't: Leopard print

For some reason, I've never really liked leopard prints (too Mrs. Robinson), but this rosy-cheeked girl might change my mind. Doesn't she look pretty?

She looks amazing. I am being converted to leopard prints in moderation.

I agree about leopard prints, and most animal prints... I'm not a great fan. But she looks really good! I'm loving her leather jacket... xx

beautiful girl!

I love leopard print slingback heels, but that's about it. I think leopard print shirts and leggings and such look cheap. (But that girl could wear a burlap sack and look lovely.)

of course she could. Her name is Hannah Davis, she is a model. You have most likely seen her in Ralph Lauren e-commerce and even some victorias secret.

Ha, I couldn't agree more but she's totally rockin' it! I think that rad men's watch and slouchy tote have a little something to do with it. (I'm a sucker for both!)

I LOVE leopard prints and own many a leopard piece, but my ultimate wish is the perfect leopard coat.

WOW - did you actually delete my question yesterday about Josh? Why won't you answer? You are the one who has chosen to post your life afterall.. and do you not invite feedback and questions??

i was never really into them either until last week at the YSL sample sale when i found the BEST leopard print shirt. i have worn it twice since.

Joanna said...

I don't really like her outfit at all, but I'm blinded by her beauty, so it really doesn't matter what she's wearing!

OK. I must address this Anon personne above. I was just leaving a cat comment on zee bun but now I'm steamed.

Just because someone writes/paints about (parts) of their life does not mean they cannot place boundaries on their personal narrative. They can entertain questions publicly or privately as they wish. It's a very difficult position to place oneself in, but there it is. Civility would call for some restraint on a subject that might not be welcome here. And no, I do not know a thing about it & do not know Jo personally. But I well know what this might be like (maybe).

Now. Matter at hand. Cat/animal prints.

Yes, she looks cute. The older you are, the more careful you have to be (alas, in so much). I have a bag with a small print in it, a ribbon, accent here & there. And one fabulous black leather (consignment shop, PETA-peeps) jacket & the lining in it is (fake!) leopard. I nearly freaked out when a friend begged to buy it for me (where is he now??) because of the print & it's fuzzyish as it's cold weather jacket. It was needless worry. Looks great.

Off on chocolate run.

Leopard print chair.... leopard print shoes, leopard print scarves... leopard print purse.... but not all at one time! I love it! Call me Mrs. Robinson! I always called myself HIP! Je Suis HIP!! Glad you are coming around!

Petulia said...

She looks great! The leopard print reminds me of Rachel Comey leopard retractors dress at www.petuliasfolly.com!

redhedgingerbread said...

what a great outfit! leopard print has always been the one fashion-themed difference between my best friend and myself... I love it and she HATES (insert gag noise) it. I do have to admit I feel a little self conscious when I wear it however ;-)

Christina said...

She is doin it! I also feel a little weird wearing it for some reason.

Erin @ SYL: Slipcover Your Life said...

I think the broken in boyfriend jeans helps out a lot...

joanna4986 said...

I like the jacket, top and tote, but I hate the jeans. I think it would look much nicer with a darker, straighter legged jean.

Alicia said...

She pulls it off without looking cheap, I think that that is usually the issue!

my name is lauren. said...

i love the styling of this. so relaxed, it makes the leopard look refreshingly chic. i also like this particular leopard print. quite unexpected.

Lexie said...

i like the large scale print! very unique.

e. e. reid said...

I agree about the lepord prints! I thought i was the only one who didn't like looking like an animal carcass -
except sometimes cute on ballet flats, no?

Rebecca (Dog-Eared) said...

i think the large size of the pattern as well as the bagginess of the shirt help quite a bit. i'd never really considered leopard print, either!

Sara said...

She is beautiful. I love leopard print too! I love adding the trend in shoes. It makes an outfit playful. Very fun!

Bali Beach Bunny said...

if it wasn't 35o and 99% humidity i would be wearing a leopard print vest and leather jacket for sure.

Her name was Lola said...

Coo-coo-ca-choo! I love it.

Cheers.

Jen Sc said...

Amazing! I wonder who makes the leopard print top? I love that it's oversized print, which makes it more interesting and less "printy"

Adriana said...

I love a bit of animal print, when worn correctly..and this is the way to wear it! Only one piece of clothing or accessories..only one! The tough biker jacket and boyfriend jeans make this outfit, I love it

Anne @ The City Sage said...

Oy! Careful what you say about Mrs. Robinson! ;)

Sallie Ann said...

This is wonderful. Effortless, right? I do LOVE leopard. I have it dabbled in throughout my life. And love the Mrs. Robbinson reference...sign me up! Is that just horrible? I'm going to go tease my hair now and find a young man to seduce. Great pic! xoxo

Pesky Cat Designs said...

I think this rosy-cheeked girl would look good in anything!

Kristin said...

I've always been such a sucker for leopard and that lovely top paired with the killer jacket is just another reason why!

blue moss said...

totally agree about the leopard thing...but i loving it with the torn jeans

anna said...

That is an ocelot print not leopard. It's so much nicer.

Her look is chic, effortless and so cool! I like her slouchy bag too :)

chess said...

I don’t like leopard prints either but what I have noticed in your photo is on how you carry that bag, it’s so glamorous!

Chessa! said...

I love the casual look of it! the entire outfit is fab.

P.S. whats wrong with a little Mrs Robinson anyway, she was hot.

Polished Sense said...

Yes, I agree. She looks lovely. I only love certain leopard prints. This one is just right :D

Happy Sunday!
