Wildcat

This outfit seemed kind of boring until I added secret leopard leggings. I know that double leopard is considered a “don’t,” so my legs are well hidden by the 5-inch overlap of my skirt and boots. My animal print overload is our little tacky secret.

Those leggings are awesome. I would wear them exposed sometime. I'm a little tacky though.

Love it. I wore bright blue tights under my outfit today - I felt like a superhero in disguise!

You are a leopard queen!

Melissa said...

I don't think leopard print is ever "boring"! lol! the red belt makes this outfit perfect.

hahahaha. Oh, Kasmira, we DON'T care about rules like this. This is adorable. And I think it would be adorable even if the skirt was shorter and you could see the leggings.

Love the hidden leggings- I find that sometimes things make me feel more powerful and self assured when they're NOT shared with the world. My special secret. Like fancy underwear. Or Tony's Stark's arc reactor in Iron Man. (okay, that's not quite a secret...)
Also, I ask my hairdresser to hide a different fun color in my hair somewhere- then when I find it, I'm thrilled! Life is too short to not have fun.

In my head, you are a secret super hero whose super suit is leopard pattern - you rip off the skirt and go fight crime, but otherwise it's mostly hidden so you're secret identity stays secret.

But what would your name be? Clearly you already answered that with your title: Wild Cat! Love it.

There is nothing at all boring about that top and skirt, and the boots are a perfect accent!

Love everything! Double leopard. Red lips & belt. Black collar & boots. Your hair & skirt. And that hair clip is beautiful!
This outfit reminded me of Jentine's double leopard: http://myedit.blogspot.com/2010/08/double-double.html
You two make animal prints look chic, not tacky!

Crikey Malone! So much leopard... So fabulous!

Lorena said...

I like it !
My favorite part is that you are wearing the tights and only you can see them. It's basically dressing for yourself, which is what I think matters most.

Great outfit! And hooray for the Etsy barrette :)

I am SO going to do secret hidden leggings this coming winter! (am in Australia)

And oh dear, is that a rule? I did triple leopard recently - a leopard dress, black cardigan with small leopard collar, and leopard ballet flats. Still, I got an outfit compliment from a boy!
