Snakeskin Print

September 26, 2011

I admit shamefully that sometimes I am a fashion victim. A typical case today as I wore a pair of printed pants that could potentially make me look 5 pounds heavier . It took me literally a few weeks to decide whether I needed this snakeskin printed pants by Zara in my life. I caved in when I noticed that Zara had restocked it in my size and I was able to snatch the last pair before someone else did – it’s a sign!

Top: Zara (current stock)

Pants: Zara (current stock)

Blazer: Zara (current stock)

Bag: Chanel (fall 2011)

Sunglasses: RayBan

Black Suede Pump: Wittner (current stock)

What do you think of this trend? Gotta have it or make it stop?!

You look ultra chic! Not many people could pull off the snakeskin but you look great!

I have to say that’s a trend I’ll stay away from, although the way you styled them is gorgeous, and I think they really suit you! You look very polished. Now the blazer… LOVE that!

Thank you Elizabeth :-) I can’t get enough blazers. Whenever I find one with nice tailoring, I just have to have it!

Gotta have it! I don’t think it makes you look heavy at all. You are so skinny lady!

Not a fan of the print, but it sure looks posh on you. And helps that it fits you perfectly, rather than baggy as I’ve seen on others. And that Chanel bag goes with everything, right choice of purchase!

I would say lose that blouse and go for non pattern top. I hv noticed many various solid colored tops at Zara that would compliment this pair of pants :) and you don’t look fat at all!

Thanks for the opinion Annie! I am on the hunt for bright tops and I lurve the ones I spotted at Zara, unfortunately none of them have my size left..they are too popular!

Love your style! I need to check Zara for such chicky pants :) I would try to compare it with plain one color t-shirt.
PS And your new bag is really fabulous!

Love it on you, I think it would look even more dramatic with clunkier shoes, maybe a cage/cut-out bootie

I ADORE these pants!! They are sooooo chic – I’d definitely keep them! Although you said 5 lbs heavIER, I’d still say you look really skinny in them. They are a keeper for sure!

Gorgeous outfit, love how you carried off the snakeskin pants and blazer. The Chanel 2.55 goes with everything!

Love your outfit! I would definitely wear that :)

Actually, Elizabeth Olsen was wearing a pair of crazy patterned Proenza Schouler pants in the new issue of Nylon, and it looks really cool. Now I want to get a pair too.

Congrats on the new bag!

Love the olsen sisters and their fashion lines! Elizabeth is so chic as well. Wish we have Elizabeth and James in Australia!

Reika, you look absolutely stunning! Love your chic style! I also have to damit that I’m kind of a fashion victim at times, but I’m not a very brave with some styles though, hehe…

When will I get my Chanel Classic Flap Bag? ;)
