Eye of the tiger

Photobucket

I'v done it girls, (and boys) i'v done it! I'v finally embraced leopard print. I know it's nothing new and it's been around for quite a few seasons now, but I have always been scared of looking like Pat Butcher or Kat from Eastenders. I found this fabulous blouse in Zara, it was just hanging there whispering buy me buy me, so of course I obliged. It instantly made a casual outfit a little bit more glam and as my sisters boyfriend mentioned - i'v managed to colour co-ordinate my outfit with my hair! Hmmmmm thanks Jason!

i agree, this print is the hardest to style without looking chaved up! i think you've done it beautifully though - i LOVE that shirt. X

Katie said...

I think the key to animal prints is that a little goes a long way, keep everything else toned down - exactly how you did it here! Looks great!

Nathalie said...

Love that blouse! I am partial to Leopard print!

Milly. said...

Ooo it looks lovely! The sum total of my leopard print is a wallet...and some VS underwear, haha! (Although not tacky!) And I rather like that nail polish colour too.

Ooo the film's pretty good although not amazing. It was my sort of thing though, in a way quite arts cinemaish. I'm going to see Clash of the Titans this weekend FINALLY. And then Dear John next week. I've turned into a film geek like you ;)
