      Its perfect. Leopard print really is a classic. And it makes the shoes pop.

      I have a phrase such as ‘urban sophistication,’ while being sweetly feminine come to mind. Lovely!

      I love the outfit, too, especially because I have the same Zara shoes. Now I know they really look great!

        Zara – so they are stunning and reasonably priced too ?!!! Wow. Thank you for letting us know. And, you have great taste in shoes.

        Thanks Marisa for the tip :) I really never expected them to be zara shoes, when looking at the rest of the outfit.
        However, the coolest things you find do not have to be expensive, actually it’s quite the opposite. For example a lot of handmade from Italy is actually quite cheap, like bags…

        Check out for yourself :)

    I like the prints, I like the colours of the prints, not sure I like them together? To pull the pant suit look together the prints should be matching…good try!

    Gosh, this looks like a page out of Lucky Magazine’s January issue (Jennifer Hudson on the cover). I like the sandals…nothing something I’m really thinking about as we Chicagoans lurch toward winter, but still fun to think about anyhow.

    Okay, there are only 2 people that can pull this look off – 1 is the girl in the photo (how she made mixed animal print in yellow/black/white/is that pink? work is beyond me!) and Elton John. AMAZING. Thank you for capturing this. And not sure if The Strand refers to the strands of her hair – but love her hair in this. Thank you! xo

    As I already said, I m not a fan of animal print and I ll be so happy when it will move to the archives of fashion history. But the shoes are really awesome. And the cut of the jacket is also fab!

    I love this look. I think the jacket & pants are from the same designer, but I don’t know who. I am a big fan of mixed prints in general, and I always think it is fun to try to analyse why it works. As everyone knows it is hard to do. It is a special case when it is 2 colourways of the same print. I think it is the simplicity and abstraction of the leopard pattern that makes this mix work (along with the great shoes). If it were naturalistic leopard, or a very fussy print, not sure it would work.

    I just like the shoes, not with this outfit. Am I a non-trendy person??!!! Maybe it’s because I just follow my instinct!
