An Outfit And Two Announcements

For the last ABC’s of Style challenge, “Z for Zebra”, I decided to have a little fun and brought out all of my animal prints, because when you get a chance to wear your zebra belt, leopard flats and giraffe collar, you take it.

It’s been such a fun challenge. Big thanks to Kayla for hosting! (I feel like this is the second time I wrote that sentence.)

Shirt: Target, Skirt: thrifted, Flats: LA Fashion District
Belt: thrifted via Buffalo Exchange, Collar: self-made

Anyway, on to the announcements. The first one: it’s my turn to pick the painting for the Style Imitating Art feature! Since Jess went with a painting of a lady last time, I wanted to shake things up a bit and picked a landscape, namely The Artist’s Garden at Vétheuil by Monet:

There are a lot of colors and texture to choose from here. I already have a rough idea in mind, and I can’t wait to see how Jess interprets it. And if you want to participate, just shoot me an email (14shadesofgreyblog@gmail.com) with your outfit photo before Sunday night (that’s February 26.)

The second announcement: see that new Smashion button on the sidebar? That’s right, I have a Smashion store now. I’m going home soon, so this is an attempt to pare down my wardrobe before the big move. Check it out!

      I don’t know yet. It depends on how the job situation goes – if I find a job that I like, I’ll stay for a while; if not, I’ll just get a job to save up some money and look into some PhD programs. But we’ll see.

    Wow! I can’t believe you managed to mix together 3 animal prints! And you did it well!

  6. This is a big-time winner. I love how seamlessly all three prints mesh, the warm tones speak so happily to each other. Beautifully done!

    Also loving: your outfit. Three animal prints in one without looking like Snooki? You win in so many ways.

    That shirt is so fun…I love the large giraffe collar and think the three prints were the perfect amount of animal for this outfit.
