Plaid + Leopard = Awesome

I’m woefully behind on my style/fashion blog reading. As of this writing, Google Reader has 349 entries for me to get through. When I finally get back at it, I plan to play Sister Wolf’s Buzzword Bingo. For those of you already playing, this post contains two bingo words/phrases. Watch for them!

Lace cardigan, Rodarte for Target. Dress, Bitten (shortened). Obi belt, Sugadaminka. Tights, Target. Boots, Rampage. Necklace, thrifted.


I used my pattern mixing trick to decide if leopard went with plaid. Would I buy a plaid dress with a leopard-print midsection? Fuck yeah!

Frankly, I have to disagree. This post should be titled: Plaid+leopard+lace=Awesome!

I always love when you do punk-type looks. They go so well with your hair! You need to wear more plaid!

You are truly a miracle! I can't pull off leopard or plaid, and you are rocking both of them!

LOVE the dress/cardi/obi combo. I used to wear a uniform of that exact plaid. Must keep my eyes peeled...

I would NEVER have put those together...and yet it looks great on you. Thanks for helping those of us who aren't so creative--we can just "copy" you :)

Ok, you're the third blogger this week who has worn the roadrte lace cardigan, and I think it's a sign that I need to get one, because everytime I see it, I go, "ooooh I want it!" Great pattern and texture mixing, lady! Looking fierce, as always!

Erin said...

I fell over laughing at the "Fuck yeah!" Fashion bingo FTW! And this outfit is totally rockin' - nice work as usual :)

Audi said...

Whoa, I love this! Totally fierce, yet effortless. All you need are some studded shoes and a pop of color, and you'll be ready for Milan! Bingo! ;-)

Love this look! May I ask where you got the leopard obi?

Kasmira said...

susan - I bought it from a the Sugadaminka ebay shop. I think she moved to etsy and changed her shop name, too. You might try searching etsy.
