Two Ways: Leopard Print Skirt

Jan 12, 2012

 

Skirt: Animal Print Pencil Skirt (Banana Republic, $90)

From Left, Bag: Furla Soho Bauletto ($375) Shoes: Dolce Vita Notty Pump ($72) Necklace: Black Crystal Collar ($85) Sweater: J.Crew Jackie Pullover ($65)

From Right, Bag: Gray Clutch ($22) Shoes: Jean-Michael Cazabat Pumps ($335) Earrings: Devora Libin Quartz Drops ($90) Top: Anglomania Angel Knotted Top ($460)

For the Office. It’s a simple look, but sometimes, that’s what you need.  The collar necklace and the purple pumps perk it up a bit, but this is the kind of outfit that you throw on when you’re running late and need to get dressed quick but look like you gave it some thought.

The Jackie cardigan from J.Crew is a Capitol Hill Style favorite.  So the Jackie pullover is bound to become a staple.  I just ordered three of them.  I hope it lives up to my dreams of finding the perfect basic pulli.

I love this bag.  It looks like a bowling bag, but it’s fabulously chic.  Sadly, no internal pockets, which seems like a crime.

For the makeup, a neutral day look with matte grey eyeshadow.  For the hair, a bouncy ponytail or down embracing your natural texture.

For a Night on the Town. Let’s start with the shoes.  The perfect shade of dark pewter with a snakeskin effect on the leather that makes them really special.  These are guaranteed to make any outfit sexier.

The blouse is urban and industrial and will show off your shoulders and collar bones.  And as Donna Karan says, your collarbones never age.  Instead of a bra, wear this with some pasties like Hollywood Cover Ups.  The clutch and the earrings complete the modern, evening look.  

Hair must be up to show off your shoulders.  You also need smoky eyes and a shiny, berry gloss.  I’d also paint my fingernails dark purple or black.  I like Tokaido Express from NARS.

    Have the sweater, have a variation of the pump, skirt on the way, NEED the necklace – hoping to rock this look soon

    I continue to be amazed at how much I wear my purple pumps. They were totally a spur of the moment purchase, but I am so glad I did it. They really add a spark to out outfit without being completely over the top.

One of the hallmarks of being middle-aged is buying your clothing in the same place you buy your groceries. For some people it’s Costco, for others it’s Target, for me, it’s Amazon. Yesterday, I opened a box that contained a bag of dog treats, gummy candy, a tin of olive oil and a dress. So […]

It’s happened to all of us: You’re walking into a meeting and you catch a whiff of something. A slight odor. A bad smell. And you wonder, “Is that me?” You want to surreptitiously check that that unsavory aroma isn’t you, but you can’t do that here. So you just keep your arms at your […]

The Range: Lounge/Travel Sets

If the pandemic did one thing for women, it brought back sweatpants as acceptable attire. But then, fashion decided that we couldn’t wear regular sweat pants, we needed to wear fancy sweat pants. And while it would be easy to disparage the ideal of luxury sweatpants made for chic, casual wear…have you felt how soft […]
