Don't be scared!

Photobucket

This is kind of an inspired look, not really the look but more of the print and its colors. which is trending atm 
I had few guy friends tell me, any time they think of leopard/zebra print their mind gravitates towards females with skin tight short dresses and tight leggings O_o ...is that true? I had to disagree with that of course lol

I wanted to challenge myself to mix up this wonderful colors in leopard print like riri.. <absolutely love the dress>(D&G dress)  .. did but I wanted it to be simple as well. Its such a huge risk pairing this print colors together but I thought I should go for it. when I found this prettyful sweater at macys at their "one day sale" lol they have that like everyday. I wasnt really in the mood to dress up so I threw a couple of things together and voila!

Sweater - click here (macys), Top- DIY, Pants- shopakira, shoes- Dolce vita

Accessories- F21 , Ebay, DIY

I had to keep my make up neutral, didnt want too much going on.

Photobucket
Scored this bad babies for $29 they somehow remind me of my dads shoe from back in the days lol
At the end of the day, I was happy with what I came up with and even happier when the compliments kept coming, 
so the moral of the story is..... (cheesy I know hehe)
Don't be scared to step out/experiment  with colors...its fun! 
would you be willing to try it ?

  3. Yes gawd I would I did a blog post on RiRi's dress awhile back b/c Topshop had the EXACT same dress for less than 100.00......of course it didn't come in my size so I have STILL been waiting to find something red leopardgy (is that a word) to do my own interpetation of that look. You ROCKED ITTTTTT doll so fierce!!!!

  17. lovely outfit! and I think that's true what guys think cuz they're used to the leopard bodysuit and what they see in 70's movies... but then again what do most guys know about fashion, my bf hates those high waisted pants and prefer me in jeans all day- that's just boring! :)
