TO - 09/30 - can animal print be worn with not so neutral colours...???

…I think it can with some precautions and without looking trashy. Don’t you?
I just can´t imagine that I must wear my leopard print cardigan only with black.


Well I suppose I’ve already told you that I’m not a prints woman. I really don’t know very much how to work with them, I just prefer to play with solid colours. But I’m trying…
I think fashion is something like not always playing for safe or it can be so boring, we must have fun now and then, daring to be considered strange.


I was considering in joining “The Second Annual Capsule Wardrobe Challenge” hosted by Jane from The Small Fabric Of My Life but things didn’t happen the way I liked. Maybe next time… or perhaps one week of my own…


I’m sorry about my irregular posting and commenting.
I’m sorry too to some new bloggers that have commented here and I hadn’t the time to return the visit.

  6. I actually think of leopard print as a neutral! (I think Stacy London of What Not to Wear has the same stance on that, too). I have a pair of leopard print pumps I've worn with a lot (even with hot pink and polka dots! http://prissypoodle.blogspot.com/2009/08/daily-duds-82609-leopard-print-as.html)
    I love the magenta with your leopard cardi-I kind of did the same thing, but in reverse. Check it out!

  17. The animal print always looks stylish and chic, love the outfit.
    Thanks for leaving your thoughts on my last post, I am not surprised that you do not fancy Kate Moss, I also do not fancy her, even if she looks very sexy sometimes and she is synonymous with fashion. Her life style just doesnt appeal to me....

  18. Hello beautiful!
    You know I always applause you on how you dare to experiment and think outside of the box! :) Just like yourself , i'm not too crazy about print, however I'll wear them once in a while just to spice things up:)
    And adding a dash of color always adds interest and creativity:)
