More leopard & Free People Inspiration

It seems that every morning when I think to myself "What is something chic I can wear today?" Leopard print is what comes to mind, and this top has become indispensable.
Knotted, of course, and mixed up with navy for a change. Boots without tights, since this outfit is from October after all.

Now on to the inspiration. The Free People Holiday catalog arrived in my mail box and it was a feast for my eyes. I think this might be my favorite catalog from them yet, I want to don these clothes, I want to be in these places, in these photographs. Can I just please live in this catalog?

Their theme was "Through the Decades" and they are so chic, so decadent; lace, sequins, velvet, all utilizing pieces to create both vintage and modern looks. There is even a 2012 calendar in the center pages, with seasonally themed outfits.

It was hard to to not post every page, but here are some of my standout faves:

What if I promised to wear this to every holiday party this year?
I love these pieces together, and the dress is so cute, even though it seems better suited for warmer months.
These accessories are killer.
I'm not sure what I love the most, the dress, the boots, or the bike?
Leopard tights! So glad I just picked up that pair from Old Navy...
I do not need anymore scalloped shorts, but I'm crazy about that ring!
Are you seeing this Sequined Jacket?
Okay velvet pants. I might love you, or I might loathe you, but no matter what this look is awesome.

The catalog was by decade? With a calendar? Yes please! I love your leopard top and how you knotted it. It looks great with the navy and the boots. I can't wait to go sans tights again. I already miss it. (We got snow a week ago. Sigh.)

Free People catalogues make me tingly. Seriously. I LOVE THEM. I haven't got mine yet. Where is it? SEND IT TO ME NOW, Free People. Along with those scalloped shorts and white lace dress. Okay, thanks.

BTW, Also LOVE your outfit! It might be my new favorite from you. I MIGHT be adventurous and not wear tights until December. I know, that's crazy. But I figure I'll have plenty of time to wear them later on. December. January. February. March. Probably a little bit in April. Why start early?

Courtney Erin said...

Of course I am a huge fan of the leopard! And I'm drooling over all those amazing looks - so pretty!

Tabitha said...

Leopard is definitely very chic and a great way to feel dressed up, but down at the same time. I love Free People stuff there's something so feminine but edgy at the same time.

Iulia Romana said...

You look simply wonderful :x I love the quality of the photos and the way you wore that gorgeous shirt :)

I wish you a fabulous weekend ! ♥

Bonnie said...

Great outfit. Leopard is definitely my go to for chic as well. I actually own that exact shirt. HAHA. I kid you not. I think we might have duplicate wardrobes. Oh man. I've never worn my shirt though. Every time I pull it out of the closet, I can't figure out how to wear it. Maybe someday.

xo,
Tracy

Alex Elizabeth said...

Free People Holiday is always epic. Sometimes I kind of think that I should just not look at it.

Like that would ever happen :P

Why is your shirt tied so perfectly? Gah. Mine always look floppy and sad.

Francesca Giusti said...
