    Sorry but from this angle it is leopard print heels under surfing shorts.

      Indeed. And you know they will go with everything on earth. She is lucky to have them.

    I have to say I’m not a fan of shoes like these… I mean, at least if they’re not part of a similar outfit.

    I always look for interesting prints and this skirt is very interesting: the combination of colors and patterns is beautiful!!!

    Different patterns but it works because of the colors catching one another. Great outfit.

    Co-ordinated they are not! But as elements on their own, worth talking about….

    Each piece individually is great – the shoes, the skirt and the bag. The skirt and the shoes each go with the bag, but the skirt and shoes don’t play nicely together. Give me a solid, bold-colored skirt, though and it would be extraordinary.

    Love this mix of abstract print, but the leopard shoes put me off as they don’t seem to flow with the lovely clutch and skirt/ shorts (?). I would have taken a pair of that compliments the colours in the skirt.

    regardless, totally beautiful

    I enjoy it. I wish I could play with prints like that.

    I believe that’s “Mix Mistress,” not “master,” but perhaps there’s something I’m missing…

    the skirt is gorgeous. a different pair of shoes could have saved the look. let’s hope that it will rain soon and those shoes will be ruined forever.
    P.s.: in my opinion, leopard prints are a fashion obscenity. they should be banned, they should be banned!

    Love mixing, hate matching.

    I find this would be fantastic if the clutch was a couch, the skirt a throw pillow and the animal print as an area rug.

    each piece is nice…just not all together. great shoes, great bag, great skirt. just that you don:t have to wear everything you have at the same time.

    I’m enjoying the mix of texture and pattern with the bag and skirt – they both have a nice worn look about them – with softer edges to the graphic.

    The shoes are nice on their own – but seem too crisp to coordinate well with the other two items…

    The block stripes background adds our favorite photographer’s deft touch to the mix.

    Totally love this mix. Also love the leopard kittens. Leopard is a great neutral — goes with everything.

    Well! This thread is certainly proof that taste is truly personal. I adore this woman’s ensemble. For me the early 60s graphic pattern of the bag picks up the pattern of the skirt and style and pattern of the shoes, in different, contrasting ways, while the colours of the skirt are reflected in each accessory, to similar effect. I was so surprised that others didn’t see this harmonious clash which is all the more thrilling for its dissonance. But that is what personal taste is all about, I guess.

      Well said! I side with you and think this is truly a masterful mix and exudes confidence in a signature style!

        I love the purple top! It’s like cardbuy!! Love it!! Also, the skirt and tights match so well with the shoes, especially with the darker tone in the skirt. wow! If it was me, I would swap the jacket (I do love this camel jacket though!!) with your big black furry one, and a black patent leather handbag, to hold the outfit together and draw more attention to the gorgeous purple, and the exquisite shoes on the end of those long sexy legs!!!! haha. Don’t get me wrong though, the jacket is wonderful, and the jacket-top combo is a delight!! xx

    Great prints but I’m not really going for the clutch which looks MASSIVE!!!

    That clutch looks very impractical!
    love the print clash though.

    Wow! that is an oversized clutch.

    December 2, 2012 at 10:12 pm

    I am not loving this–it looks dowdy and mismatched. I like the kitten-heel pumps, but the skirt is just plain fugly and does nothing to tie any of the disparate patterns together.

    Please, please, let this animal print thing end. It is soooo boring and uninspiring …. I ve seen it a thousand times …. and most people can t pull it off …

    • Martine

      December 8, 2012 at 7:09 pm

      I think its more of a classic then something that comes and goes. Like stripes or polka dots. There are just times where they are a bit more, and times when they are a bit less. Of course there are far more people that can’t pull off stripes then leopard print. But both ere here to stay for good. I am not even sure how you can not pull off leopard print, exactly. Like the same way people “can’t” pull off bright color? I don’t know. I don’t think basics are boring.

    Love the kitten heels, and I love the pattern of the skirt. Like them together, would like them separately too. Beautiful.

    Marni skirt from past seasons. I have it and love it. I would never wear it with those shoes. Works for her.
