in the jungle
sweater: h&m, shorts: urban outfitters, shoes: gap, jacket: forever 21
Inundated with months of countless sightings of Céline/ Céline-esque replicas all over the net, I was sold on these gap leopard print slip-ons. I guess my capitulation was inevitable since leopard has maintained its strong presence over the past few years, with everyone squealing about how it's the perfect "neutral." Somehow I got over the memories of an endless string of leopard botching outfits, as well as the bad aftertaste from all the guido, and in my opinion tacky, looks equated to my home state (I blame you, cast of Jersey Shore.)
Introducing the print in the form of an accessory, an accent is perfect for me. Most of my shoes are black, black, some shade of brown, or oh, black. The print adds some sugar and spice (...and everything nice), but it a color palette comfortable enough with someone who prefers all things neutrals. I can't believe I'm saying this, but I may have to join in the "leopard is a neutral" crowd.
