quite ferosh indeed

12-14-0912-14-09
vintage leopard silk shirt, BDG cigarette jeans, prada lace-up booties

Let me start by saying that this is WAY outside my comfort zone. I'd always a bit weirded out by animal prints; maybe I'm just not ferosh enough to pull it off (or convince myself that I can). Give me florals or stripes and yeah, I'll WERK it. Leopard print? Nyah... maybe. There's something a little empowering about donning this however, that I must admit to noticing. I rarely venture out of my usual safe zone by going for something as bold as this and it's really quite fun. It's like playing dress up without actually looking ridiculous? Pfft, it seems I'm out running out of steam with this.

I'd also like to add that this is the closest I'll get to a DIY. See the sleeves? Obviously I rolled them myself but since it is silk it needs more than that to keep it in place. I ran of of sewing needles so guess what I used instead? Umm... lol: a stapler. Hey, hey I was desperate! Obviously I will fix it with real thread but until then, here's to my janky DIY skills.

Anyway, back to this whole "AM I FEROSH ENOUGH TO WERK THIS?" question. I suppose it comes down to this: what do you guys think? I'm still not 100% sure I can pull it off but I'll keep it on for the rest of the day and see how I feel. If worst comes to worst, I'll just put it in the shop which, by the way, has been updated. Silk shirts galore!

Sophia said...

you're totally werking the leopard, no worries. janky diy skills ftw. there's no shame. i've taken a stapler to dresses and shirts in the past with fantastic results. it just kinda hurts when the staples get caught in your skin...ya know :/

cat said...

dude you are werking it!

Ganymede Girl said...

It looks good on you but I have to admit when I first saw what you were wearing I instantly thought "ahh that's not her usual style". That's not a bad thing though, maybe just wear it a few more times and you will feel normal and comfortable in it?

Urban Lullaby said...

Lovely print! U worked ittt!!!!

Kennedy said...

yeah that silk leopard shirt is pretty amazing

love, S said...

you work it! I'd be a little freaked if you roared at the camera though - you're much too sweet for THAT :)

this is who I am said...

feroshous!!! you can definitely pull it off! you are so cute cute cute :)

i love how the leopard print looks on you! you should definitely try a zebra print, i think you could rly werk that. ;]

Teresa said...

Just let that sexy, rocker chic out! You know you want to! At least you know that if you decide to divert your style direction that way, you can pull it off EASILY!

animal prints are always hard for me too, but you pull it off nicely. i can't/won't diy either, i pride myself in dda (don't do anything)!

calivintage said...

i loooove silk blouses, but i am fearful of trying animal prints. the other day i ventured out and bought some leopard print tights to try it out!

i think this look is great on you.

Diana said...

i think you look really sexy, while still keeping it classy. the cigarette jeans make your legs look extra long, your booties give the outfit that extra edge, and the looseness of the top leaves the rest to imagination. it's sexy without trying too hard.

so, to answer your question: hell yeah, girl! werk it!

Nadia Kamballa said...

You rock the leopard, gal!! It's good to get out of your comfort zone sometimes..

What are you talking about??? You look awesome!!!

Annie said...

BEAUTIFUL. I have the strangest weakness for leopard print and this is amazing. If you do put it up for sale (which you should not!) I would certainly purchase it.

SAUVAGE said...

loveee the shape of the boots, they're almost architectural.

Renee (eatliveshop.com) said...

love love love this look on you! i think i need that leopard shirt!

Jasmine said...

i think going out of one's comfort zone is necessary sometimes, and i must say this was really successful--i love the leopard print on you!! i think leopard gives women a sexy empowerment, must be all the media's influence :) anyway you look great as always dear! i hope finals are going well!

betz said...

rawr! you work it well! love your shoes. you look so stunning!

Dirty Hair Halo said...

This WERKS. I really like how you did the sleeves, it gives the blouse that chic oomph. Better get to sewing!

This blouse is so fabulous, it should really become one of your staples.

Pun. Intended.

You look so good! I think you pull it off, even if it's outside of what you normally wear.

Cotton Socks said...

i have the same issue with leopard print. i think it looks great on everyone else but stupid on me.

i think this works on you because the top is loose.
i think leopard print on tight clothing is a different ball game. (unless you want that rock star kind of look)

what dia like said...

i like it! you are beautiful.

theflawlet said...

you did indeed work it!

**cha** said...

I adore your style and your look.

wind said...

i think it looks AWFUL on you...put it in the shop! i want it! just kidding it rocks. anytime you wear something outside your comfort zone and feel like you stand out, you have to remember other people don't know that. that always helps me feel a little more confident when i wear something that feels attention-getting to me.

Lydia said...

I most definitely think you can work. I'm super jealous, and you've inspired me to get more leopard print in my life!

Xiaohe said...

i have no comfort zone limits (is that a bad thing? lol)...so i think u can definitely pull of whatever u want to wear to ur hearts desire :P

Arielle said...

I LOVE IT! the pointed heels on the boots are amazing.

Jenny Cindy said...

You definitely pull it off - you look wonderful with the leopard print.

Maria Tasula said...

Hey, why not, you look amazing!

Anonymous said...

haha I'm not too comfortable with animal print either, mostly because the people around me can't pull it off and make it look SUPER tacky. =_= I think you look great though! I love the stapler idea, lmaoo. I've a question thouuuuuugh, I hope you answer! :X I'm really tired of my grandma-looking cheap eyeglasses so I was wondering what company glasses you have in the previous post?..They're sooo cute and exactly what I want! :(

The Stylish Wanderer said...

Um girl.....

connie said...

I love that print on you. You can totally work it!

Ami Schaheera said...

you look cute & FEROSH! Haha I'm the same, I'll end up looking so awkward in animal print as oppose to plain black and minimal prints/colors. Time to venture other possibilities ey?

:)

Ania said...

oh honey this shirt was made for you ;)

lol I'm glad I'm not the only one using stapler to alter clothes - a skirt in my case...

Zoe_Flood said...

I love your pictures! they are so cute.

Sudenly-Me said...

it's awesome =)

Sandy M. said...

learned in my psychology class that leopard/animal prints are subconsciously provocative and arousing! haha perhaps you're uncomfortable with how arousing you look! and by arousal, I don't mean sexual, I mean a shot of adrenaline and so. LOVE YOUR POSTS & you can definitely WERK that top :)
