Menswear and Animal Print

A La Kimberly's Inpiration Calendar, today's inspiration was menswear and animal print. I really like the look of neckties on women, especially when the rest of the outfit includes feminine details such as a pencil skirt and/or heels. I got my first necktie in highschool, but have been hesitant to wear one for over a decade. For some reason, neckties on women are still not widely accepted. I think this is a look that I am going to try and incorporate more during the fall and winter months.
The Outfit:
Black button-down and purple cardigan - New York & Company
Snow leopard skirt - Merona
Necktie and cameo pin - Express (purchased over 15 years ago!)
Gray and purple heels - Shoedazzle.com (May 2009)


  1. This is one of my favorites! Love the color and print on you!

  2. "feminine details " Bare legs do not look good and really take away from the girlish look when wearing a skirt. This bare legged trend has really gone too far!
    Very cave woman looking. Go slip some hose on.
