Red, Camel, Leopard. Repeat.

It has become clear that I've become obsessed with anything leopard print. I had to add these gloves to my collection. The leopard is fabric, but the underside is leather, which was essential so that I could wear them while driving. What is worse than a bare hand on an ice cold steering wheel?

I've also realized that attaching the fur collar to the trench has caused me to fall in love with both pieces all over again. Between the two of them I spent less than $20, and yet, wearing them makes me feel incredibly luxe, like I could have spent thousands.

Even with the mild winter we are having, I'm still feeling uninspired, and certainly not as adventurous as I was last winter. I just seem to want to wear red, camel, and leopard over and over again. (But for the sake of the blog, I'll force myself to wear some other things as well.)

I love your tights and the combo of the trench and fur collar - very chic :)

Porcelain complexion said...

It's just as well I live over the other side of the world otherwise I would be tempted to steal that coat! Each time I see it I want it more - hopefully when winter comes here I'll find one of my own!

Leopard is a good obession to have

Lyosha said...

leopard print is obsession. I feel obsessed with looking at outfits with it (better for my wallet than wearing it myself)

I love your coat! And your dog is so cute ♥

Gray Skies said...

Those tights are so cool! I like that they look like knee-high socks, only without the fuss of actual knee-high socks. (For some reason whenever I wear knee-high socks, they always slide down my legs and end up looking really dorky.)

Ali said...

Red, camel, and leopard are such good colors on you though! That's probably why you run for them, haha. I'm pretty sure those gloves were made for you, and I'm sure you'll find ways to play around with them more without red and camel. :D

Those tights are way neat. It's like you're wearing layered socks or something but you're not. Fancaaaaay. And the cap on your heels are perfect. I love that tasseled purse, too!

Outside Looking In said...

Red is definitely your color--you look so pretty! Love red with leopard!

A slippery hand on the steering wheel... I discovered wool gloves weren't meant for driving and haven't bought any since. A London Fog trench is an awesome piece-- you should feel like a million bucks! Red, camel, and leopard is a great combination in my book, so you should wear it as much as you want!

Lorena said...

You certainly look like a million bucks.
And I get it - I have been loving animal print too.
It makes me feel grown up- sometimes I need a reality check !
Chloe's leash also adds a touch of lux to the entire look.

Jessica Gitler said...

such a stunning outfit ...those colors are just one of the best combos out there in my mind!

loving your trench and I guess in comparison to our past winters this one is mild but its certainly not warm..no mam. :)

Rebecca said...

Red and leopard always looks super stylish!

Loren said...

I'm in love with those tights. Also I don't think there's anything 'safe' about this outfit. You are definitely rocking bright red, leopard print, and fur. Which may not be 'new' for you but is still very exciting and cool looking ;)

rlutz said...

Such fun tights!! I always love you you rock the leopard print!!
