Because yes, there was a leopard print post just last week, and I would not typically do another so soon, but this Current Elliott skirt is burning a hole in my shopping cart over at Shopbop, and when I can’t get something out of my head, I find it helps to share. Here’s how I’m picturing it: sized up so it sits a bit lower on the hips and falls a touch closer to the knees, and dressed down with a tee and flat sandals, or platforms that are on the chill side. Can you picture it? Should I go for it?
Sometimes, a girl’s just got to say to hell with it and go with the most electro-fantastic snakeskin print there ever was.
When it comes to choosing prints, the design lords over at J. Crew really know how to bring the clever…
…without sacrificing the chic. I am all over this owl business.
And I’m loving the idea of reaching for this artfully striped cardi instead of one of my many, many, many plain black ones on occasions when an outfit needs just a hit of instant cool.
This nifty weekender is from the Kate Spade Saturday line, which I checked out yesterday on my afternoon dog walk.* As an inveterate collector of travel pieces (have I ever discussed my menagerie of rolling suitcases with you guys?) it is the last thing on earth I need. And yet: I need.
*And from which I was not expecting much, as it is supposed to be the little sister collection of Kate Spade—a line that itself already feels too young for me at this stage in the game. But it was actually kind of fun; the tableware in particular is worth a look (I liked these); as are accessories (this crossbody iPad case seemed nifty); and I liked the mix of cute sunglasses that look more expensive than they really are too. The clothes, while cute, really are for the target demo.
For those who—like me—fear if they tried to pull off the plaid shirt trend, they’d look less like they were trying to do anything related to fashion, and more like they were headed out back to check on the compost heap, may I suggest this snappy little tartan scarf ?
