Animal Print is a Neutral

My oh my this is my kind of editorial. Bold colors, big hair, gloves, fur, cinched waists and of course animal print. My mom always used to tell me that animal print went in and out but I don’t think it’s going anywhere! As the Man Repeller says, animal print is a neutral in my opinion. I also want to address socks with sandals. I think I need a full post for that. Enjoy!

Pretty, Pretty Purple

To me, this is glorious. Purple is such a lovely color with so many hues and varieties. It’s just as beautiful in the fall/winter as it is in the spring/summer. The surrounding Jacarandas obviously bring the color to life (and make me desperate for spring) but the color itself is also moving. Purple can be worn by people of all complexions and hair colors. I especially want to mix a lavender blouse with a plum pant. I’m even partial to a dark violet smoky eye.
