Erika said...

I honestly cannot resist that Kate Spade line - it is possibly my favorite thing ever! So adorable yet trendy at the same time. Marvelous post, darling. I think I need a pair of leopard print opaques for the fall! :)

Little Rus said...

This just made me smile... Believe it or not but I was looking at animal prints today thinking of creating a post. I also thought that you would love some of my picks.
And here you are! Blogging about animal prints! Wow... Great minds... ;)
Love your post and adore those Charlotte Olympia Dolly leather platform pumps. I wouldn't wear prints (just not me... and I do have a scary example in mind... every time I think of that woman I feel dizzy... ), but I do love the footwear.

Have a great day, darling!

cavalli will always be the king of leopard prints.....always in style! :)

mariarose said...

Ahh I love Leopard print, such a versatile pattern, it's so trendy and timeless, and gives a bit of spark to any outfit. It looks really edgy and modern but there is that classic 80's vibe to it xx

Delmy said...

All this leopard makes me go crazy! I want leopard cardigan or jacket so bad!

Laura Trevey said...

SO many fabulous finds as usual!!
Killer print boots ~~ a must have!

xo Laura

The Anthology said...

So gorgeous! Especially when paired with metallics.

Love that animal prints are so vintage and modern at the same time, which I suppose makes them timeless.

Melissa Blake said...

You always have a great way of making me change my mind about fashion. Thank you! :)

WendyB said...

It cracks me up that animal prints and red lipstick are so "in" this second. I feel like a broken clock that's right twice a day. I was wearing them before, when everyone thought they were tacky, and I'll be wearing them after, when everyone thinks they are tacky.

Shay said...

I'm not really a leopard girl, but I love snakeskin!

Zepequeña said...

Estas prendas rugen y todo!

Zepequeña.

rebecca said...

that is a lot of animal print! i actually hate animal print, i just think its tacky and outdated but we all have our own opinions! a very cool post x

Monica said...

I was just watching Factory Girl and thinking that I just love how well Edie Sedgwick pulls off leopard print. I'm actually quite fond of the ankle boots you've posted.

Peter Breese said...

Tip top CC... nice

Ashley said...

I could really go for a pair of leopard print booties, they seem like they'd be so fun to play around with!

Gabbi said...

Gorgeous post dear CC! Completely in love with that Plum Chloe animal-print dress...♥

AX80 said...

Ah! YES! I love leopard and zebra prints.

The only unfortunate thing is that they can make or break you but other than that they can add so much color and texture to every outfit.

I'm guessing you like your prints?

Maria Confer said...

Oooh, I really want the leopard cape at the top! So stunning.

I have never been a huge animal print fan but i am really loving some of these especially the ones that are more subtle!

Averill said...

Love all the animal print, but what I'm really craving this fall is peacocks (like that to die for Milly shirt!).

Thanks for visiting Odi et Amo, CC!

Cindy said...

I love leopard print! My aunt gave me her gorgeous leopard print coat from the 1950s, but my dry cleaners destroyed it. Needless to say, I was heartbroken.

MissNeira said...

Meghan Donovan said...

Frank&Rémy said...

I must say that in a strange way the D&G runway outfit reminds me of Alexander McQueen, dont u think?

But my favorite outfit has to be the Dsquared2!

Alex Dom said...
