Recently I have been ogling all things leopard...
Style crushes come and go... and when they go, you're left with items that work with absolutely nothing in your wardrobe and a nagging sense of 'what the hell was I thinking'.
Still, they're hard to resist... the internal debate goes something like this:
Inner Fashionista: "But leopard print looks so cool... "
Voice of Reason: "And brown tones wash me out completely, make me look as if I haven't slept for a week."
Inner Fashionista: "Maybe just accessories... very glamorous..."
Voice of Reason: "Only if you get a whole new wardrobe to go with your new accessories."
|bangle, shoulder bag, tote bag, sunglasses, ballerina flats, slippers|
Still, I did get the tortoise shell Miu Miu sunglasses last spring... And it wasn't easy to find them: I remember running around London looking for them, and how excited I was when I finally tracked down a pair at Liberty's...
Since then I have been trying to mix and match them with my existing wardrobe... I usually wear them with something blue, or blue and white stripes, but I think these sunglasses need to be matched with something with a bit more oomph... Maybe if I add leopard print shoes...
How do you deal with completely out-of-character style crushes?
