I don’t get as worked up over leopard prints as I used to, but I still like a really good one—and these days that tends to mean one that has some color other than the ones you traditionally associate with leopard print in the mix. This shirt, with its bold hits of pink against a background of grey, for instance, is pretty remarkable.
Army green turns out to be a great foil for leopard, and gives it an almost camo-like feel.
Don’t even click through to the price (it’s bonkers); I just had to include this coat because it is so fun to look at.
I am not really a colored jeans person. And in fact, I have known of the existence of these brick-red jeans from The Great for some time now without feeling one way or another about them, but the other day I ran across them again and felt strongly, suddenly, that they needed to be mine (am I the only one given to these transitory urges?) I might have waited for the moment to pass, but I went for it and am glad I did: they’re soft and comfortable (I sized up or they’d definitely be on the tight side), and a really nifty way to inject color into an outfit when I’m feeling lazy.
Another item I surprise myself by wanting: this corduroy vest by Frame Denim, my new faves. I don’t think I’ve actually worn a vest since the 70s—I always feel a little bit like I’m in costume, or about to take a drink order when I try one on—and I’m not at all sure I could pull it off. But this is so chic—I love that it’s corduroy, and such a good blue—that I might have to try.
Most sweater coats tend to look lumpy and un-tailored (that’s sort of the point of them, I guess), but this is just fantastic.
And these are crazy, I know, but I can’t stop thinking about them.
I always make sure the items in my cheap and chic posts are under $100, but am making an exception this time with these handbags, which are all under $150, because I can bring you so much more cuteness just by adding those extra fifty dollars (having said that, I’ll point out that there are a couple of under $100 options here too). First up: I think I this blue suede bag looks really luxe, especially with the chain handle. And I love that there’s another—leather—handle, because chain handles are wicked uncomfortable, chic as they are.
This bucket bag looks just like it could be Mansur Gavriel, but it’s faux leather and costs just a shade over $50.
Just a good, solid everyday bag, with room to fit a small laptop.
I really like the combination of the rich brown suede and natural leather handles here.
A chic little lady bag, streamlined as you please.
Converse high tops with a quilt print. Mind = blown.
