Daily Outfit: 10/5/10

Leopard-print tie-neck blouse, Bourbon and Lace (via a pop-up shop)
High-waisted black pencil skirt, The Mexican Shop
Belt, from a pair of high-waisted Phillip Lim 3.1 shorts
Snakeskin pumps, Vince Camuto
Faux pearl bracelet, self-made
Faux pearl earrings, don’t remember

I had a thrifting date with the truly marvelous Katie on Saturday that included a visit to the Mighty Swell vintage pop-up shop. I scored three items – all polyester, all wildly printed. And I adore them all … but I think this blouse is the big winner. I’ve called it leopard print above, but I’m pretty sure it’s actually ocelot.

    great top!! I had a top I was calling leopard and a man I know commented (he was a biologist who had traveled around the world working) corrected me and said it was ocelot.. well, that sure opened up my animal print vocabulary!!

    looks great!!

    Ocelot, leopard, who cares! As long as it's not giraffe, I love it.

    You look fabulous! That outfit is professional and feminine at the same time, and could easily go from the office to cocktails or dinner. Excellent!

    Okay, this is one seriously smokin' outfit. You look radiant and I love the way you've mixed your animals – that leopard and snakeskin? Love.

    I LOVE that it's ocelot. It makes it seem fresh! Great sexy-retro look!

    I just bought a leopard print cardy, but I love your blouse, it is just sooo leopardy….

    You scored many points with this outfit !!!I like how you made it work appropriate . The blouse is so classic and yet so in fashion at the moment.Very inspirational.

  14. Anya

    Ok, this one your personal best. Sophisticated is the word, and the colors look great. I love love love it.

    I adore the skirt…so classic and flattering. I've always been leery of high-waisted styles (afraid they make my bum look bigger), but I always admire them on other people so I think I have a problem with my self-perception that I need to throw out!

    The sexy kitty print looks so striking with the classic skirt too…perfect juxtaposition ๐Ÿ™‚

    Now I want to go thrifting… ๐Ÿ˜›

    Very Mad Men! I'm impressed at how flattering this style is on you, considering that the silhouette is very different from most of your other outfits. You so manage to get proportions to work for you!
    PS. I'm itching to see this blouse/outfit with tan pumps or boots.

    Ok, usually I'm just a lurker, but this outfit is too fabulous NOT to gush about! SO SASSY! Love it.

  18. Associate Girl

    You look fabulous! This is one of my all time most favorites for you.

  19. SarahN

    MEOW! I am ALL OVER this outfit, Sally, my favorite by far.

    Polyester printed tops are the BOMB: colorful, versatile and machine washable. What's better than that?

  20. Future Lint

    Va-va-voom! I LOVE the blouse, the ocelot is such a cool take on leopard print!

  21. Meghan

    I'm so happy that that blouse went to a good, loving home! It's really a special one, for sure! You look fabulous in it, for sure!

  22. rb

    I think this might be my favorite of all the outfits you've posted. It's very DVF 1970s glam and I love that you have your hair in an updo with it. That added touch just makes it.

  23. Audi

    This outfit is truly stunning! And assuming it's still ok to use the term "sexy secretary" I think it applies here. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Wow, I love this shirt. Just looking at a leopard print blouse on another blog and then I click through and there you are looking gorgeous in this. Love it.

  25. Anna

    I was at Mighty Swell and I saw someone trying this top on! Looks like she decided against it and it made it's way to your closet- it looks great on you!!
