Animal Print - Do or Don't?

(Photo from Marie Claire magazine November 2009)

I’ll admit I’ve never been a huge fan of animal prints. It’s so easy to over do it and end up looking tacky rather than chic! However a few pieces have slowly crept into my wardrobe and I LOVE them!

The bold black stripe at the bottom gives this dress a finished look that makes it perfect for work or after work drinks!

A black belt adds definition to my waist.

Club outfit from New Look!

Match it with a black or white jacket and leggings!

Dresses that double as shirts are always a great investment!

LOVE the sandals!

So what do you think? Is it a DO or DON'T?

Gossip Girl OBSESSION - Lace!

(Blair wearing Black Lace Dress in the pilot episode from Gossip Girl Fan)

Everyone needs a vice and Gossip Girl is mine (that and coffee)! From the moment the show started in 2007 I’ve eagerly anticipated every episode anxious to see what the characters are wearing each week. With Blair’s sophisticated vintage looks and Serena’s casual glamour I was hooked!

With lace appearing everywhere this season, crossing trends and styles, I was reminded of a particular lace number Blair wore in the pilot episode. Inspired, I went in search of my own lace dress @ New Look.

From the front, a classic lace dress but with a TWIST! The back dips dangerously low and I’m really surprised I got this shot without my pink underwear showing. My advice if you’re going to a more formal affair, wear this with a tailored jacket in satin. If seduction is your plan, pair it with some killer heels, your hair up and perhaps a simple chain that hangs down your back.

While black is classic, lace is now available in all colors giving it a fresh new look. This one fit perfectly and also had a scoop back but was definitely a mini! If you’d prefer to be a little more covered complete this sleek look with a pair of leggings or jeggings and some ankle boots.

Combination, classic black lace and color! This dress had a very straight cut which just didn’t work on my petite frame but the bow detail in the back was adorable!

A look always has to be tailored to the individual and this dress was my favorite! A v-neck is always flattering if you have a smaller bust and the cinched waist accentuates my curves. Felt like a party as soon as I put it on. I also like the versatility of this dress. It could easily work for so many different styles. Pair it with biker boots and a leather bomber jacket for a more punk look. Pair it with some sexy stilettos, a cute clutch and your ready for cocktails!

Houndstooth (or Dogtooth)!

(c) Glamour Magazine November 2009

I distinctly remember sitting on the edge of my mother’s bed thinking I wanted to be just like her. She looked so sophisticated in her houndstooth skirt! (I’m pretty sure she still has it too) It’s nice to see a classic pattern come back in fashion! Loving the H&M skirt and Alexander McQueen bag!

Today there are lots of options. You can go big and bold with all over pattern or simple with just a handbag. Here are some pieces I found. Happy Shopping!

Animal Bandeau Tulip Dress

Being of the small bust demographic I’ve always been a bit nervous about the bandeau dress, they just never seem to fit properly. This one does! The tone on tone animal print is fun without being over the top!

Multi Geo Print 2 in 1 Vest Dress

Tulip Dresses are every where these days and very figure flattering! Love the blue, black & white pattern!

Tuxedo Satin Lapel Jumpsuit

This jumpsuit was just too hot to put back! All the sex appeal of a mini without any of the concerns that you’re flashing people. Can’t wait to wear it out! :D

Smudge Floral Tulip Mini Skirt! The colors are really vibrant and fun!

If you've never been to Jane Norman, what are you waiting for! If you're like me and find yourself in there at least once a week, email me, we'll form a support group. Maybe the store will give us a group discount! :)

According to Glamour – Double Duty Dressing

(Glamour Magazine November 2009)

Loving this look on Taylor (in black) and Peaches (in blue), who have adhered to a similar color palette. Unfortunately, though I love Fearne, I don’t love her version of this look. With the blue plaid top and animal print skirt it’s just too much pattern. What do you think, is this look a DO?

My version
