Leopard Denim

October 9, 2012

The denim trend has evolved from bright and pastel solid hues to intricate and flamboyant printed patterns this fall.  I found this pair of  leopard print Jeans from Zara recently and I believe it was for less than $100! Being quite a Jeans snob, I am surprised how great the fit is. The dark blue hue helps to make the leopard pattern look subtle. To balance the leopard feature, I paired it with an Equipment shirt (which is hands down the best shirt) in a neutral tone for an urban and polished look.

LBD in leather

September 5, 2012

Still jet lagging and bang – caught flu as soon as I landed. I am still sniffling as I type, but I really wanted to update my blog so I thought I’ll do a quick aka “filler” post. These pictures were taken before I left for holiday wearing my favorite leather dress of the moment. It has a shift cut with the waist slightly tucked in which is a fool proof silhouette for my body shape. I have countless dresses in the same cut, but the fact that it’s in full leather brings a different vibe to the look.

I love to pair a soft and flowy skirt with something more structured such as a leather jacket or a tuxedo blazer. From what I have read I think this combination was originated by French women. They can never do wrong with fashion.

I have been literally living in this pair of jeans lately. They are by far my favorite Jean’s brand – J Brand. They have been consistently making great jeans that have a very good fit in super luxe fabric. The fit of 901 Legging Jeans is perfect for me – it’s skinny from top to bottom, and it’s stretchy without losing its shape. And it’s not the usual boring plain black denim (though I love them as well), they have a real leather appeal with a soft metallic finish. (not as shiny as on the website, but complex enough to have people wonder). If you have been tossing around the idea of having a pair of leather pants, I highly recommend you to start with this one!

The Sheer Maxi

March 18, 2012

I have been searching for a sheer and flowing black maxi skirt for the longest time! And Zara seems to always be the problem solver. Wearing it out on a rather perfect windy day was just coincidental.

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!
