Here are a few things i hope you own or at least suggest you acquire in the near future--because, well, they're just perfect staple pieces.
1. a well-tailored trench coat
2. leopard print shoes and/or belt
A trench just makes any outfit sophisticated, ladylike, and structured.
Wouldn't you agree?
Leopard print has earned itself a 'tacky' label in the past, and it still can be terribly tacky if down wrong or in abundance, but when done right it can really add such a pretty texture to an outfit.
It's one of my favorite prints to play with. I've been looking for the perfect pair for some time--but after seeing the j.crew etta's i thought i was spoiled for life...not that i would ever pay that much for a pair of shoes, but i just knew i wouldn't be satisfied with anything less jaw-dropping.
well, what to my surprise, when i found these beauties for only $29 at target. They're almost identical and less than 1/10th the price! it was love at first sight, even marcus told me to put them immediately in the cart. i did not contest.
