Lucky Community styling post featuring animal prints for ss2015 (rawr!)

So the prompt for Lucky Community came and it was all about animal print, since that is the new neutral (that’s what they said).  I ran in the closet and the delivery pile and started styling…

I figured I’d start with a casual outfit, perfect for school or work. This is pretty easy to pull off and the white pant is comfortable and a great piece to mix patterns around. This outfit has checks, stripes, and print- but you really don’t feel it…

This look was inspired by all the festival style tweets I was seeing last week. I loved mixing the colors, but also how easy this is- jump out of bed, grab pieces, dress, leave- done. Those boots are super comfortable by the way, and cut to conform to the shape of your foot.

This may be my fave because of the humour involved. Very proper lady wears gold oxfords and a bucket hat!!! This is also the most personal look, since most of it is thrifted. It’s my smartass punk dowager look resurfacing, lol!

The leopardskin cardigan, or what makes an item of clothing your best friend.

One day I was walking around in the Village, near Washington Square Park and saw this cool thrift store. I went in and started poking around. Finding the prices reasonable and the merchandise appealing, I settled in for a good long browse with intent to buy.

After looking, holding things up, turning things inside out, feeling fabric, sniffing, trying on, discarding, and searching item by item and rack by rack for the ONE thing? I found my leopardskin cardigan. Behold the resulting sartorial glory!

The print is a perfect palette of neutral browns and a hint of black- as a result, it goes with ANYTHING. Just anything. It’s just thick enough and is made from a soft, stretchy cotton that has held up to repeated washings without fading. The 3/4 length sleeves make this rock with a retro dress or tshirt and pencil skirt, but then you can get grungy and put it with a rock tshirt and coated jeans or shiny leggings. The card has it’s own swagger, but can be a backup singer if neccessary.

(the cardi goes to NYFW. I love this outfit so much)

If I’m feeling lost and alone, I throw on my cardi. Ok, that’s weird- but I do end up looking through the cardigan pile and saying -‘hey you! let’s go out’ and putting that cardigan on. I cannot say enough about my leopardskin cardi.
