Leopard and lace

vintage cheetah-print silk top, vintage ruffled lace vest, H&M lace dress, Forever 21 purse/knee-high socks, thrifted wedges, UO necklace

For some reason I really love juxtaposing lace and leopard-print material -- one has an innocence to it, while the other has a fierce flare. I remember saying in one of my earlier posts that I seem to be all about unusual balances, eh? Also, originally the leopard and lace stood alone (sans the thigh-high socks) but then when it came time to snapping some shots, the weather instantly turned nippy, warranting the thigh-high socks. Gotta love fickle So Cal weather. Anyway, please excuse the poor quality of these photos... sometimes when you're trying to recuperate from a three-week long cold while you're drowning yourself in notes and books to study for finals, you don't really have the brain matter to function properly, nor do you have the time to pose in front of pretty places. Soo, in front of the house did it for me, ha. Alright, I got my quick blog fix and now it's back to studying. As if I haven't reiterated this enough in my head: I can't wait until it's Friday (Friday, Friday -- anyone else have that Rebecca Black song on repeat? HAHA).

just perfect

Lynzy said...

This is by far my favorite outfit of yours thus far. You look gorg in the lace and leopard. I cannot believe that the vest and blouse were thrifted. You seriously need to bring me to the thrift stores you go to because I can tell you the ones around here are not nearly as amazing.

Angel said...

These photos are still great even if they were taken in front of your house! I always hear people say they don't like mixing patterns and materials too much, but you do the mixing AND matching (the necklace is just perfect as well!). I'm going to a bloggers meet this weekend, so Friday can wait; I'm so anxious...

Anyways... bad ass combination of prints. I LOVE how you're willing to take such risks and so daring to try new things. Even for 'lazy' photos these are amazing. I've been meaning to ask... who takes your photos for you?
