What is it about leopard print that so enraptures me? Maybe it’s the versatility. It’s preppy, chic, sophisticated, sweet, and confident all at once, encompassing all the traits I’d ever want to be associated with. One could use it to both spice up or sweeten any outfit. I’m especially blown away by the print’s appearance in DKNY’s Fall 2013 collection. All the backstage shots are just so cool and collected. Sigh. It’s aspirational stuff like this, which tumblr keeps flooding into my dash, that makes me question my average life.
Ooh, I love this spread by Grey Magazine. And I’m mildly obsessed with Ming Xi, the freshest of fresh-faced models, I think. Is it because I like to think we look alike? Peut-être. It’s a claim based solely on the popular belief that all Asians tend to look like each other, but hey, in this case, that’s good enough for me. Anyway, the outfits here are super cool and subtly fierce. And an added bonus, in the last picture, she faked a chic bob by tucking her hair into her shirt! Anyone who’s ever tried that before, and who with long hair hasn’t, can appreciate that trick.
