Am I late with this post or what. Technically speaking, leopard prints were meant to dot my blog from top to toe and everywhere in between, last month, but instead, here we are, right smack in the first week of August and I’m still speaking about those spots. I could very easily blame my tardiness on my newly acquired frequent traveller role. Indeed, I could. And I’m rather leaning towards that. I have, after all, been living out of suitcases for the past 4 weeks, with another fortnight to go. But I’ll play nice.
And I’ll apologise from the very bottom of my heart because my timing is way off 🙂 by a month and three continents.
It has been quite the adventurous time, I’m telling you. First I was in NYC then in Chicago then off to Melbourne then to Kuala Lumpur, and, now, Kuching. Enough of my pseudo jet-setting adventures (I have to save those for another post) and more on the Fab 40s.
You know who we are; Ann, Dawn Lucy, Dixie, Jane and myself. We are the fearless five. The feisty five. The fabulous five who are having loads of fun with fashion in our forties. And we hope that you’ve been enjoying the ride too. Since exploring the themes of Marsala & Denim, Jumpsuits, Gingham, Lace and Leopard Print, we’ve come full circle.
We put our heads together, wondering how we could further improve upon the series, you know, and Ann was the first to come up with a delightful idea.
Therefore, in the next bout of The Fab 40s, we have a little surprise for you 🙂 obviously I can’t/shan’t tell you now because it wouldn’t be a secret afterall, if I did, would it? I promise, it’ll only add to the merriment. Pinkie swear. For now though, please join me (if somewhat belatedly) in delighting in their lovely oh-so-individual interpretations of that glorious feline print, Leopard.
Ann of Kremb de la Kremb (she has the quirkiest ability to pair the most unexpected items of clothing together, and make the entire outfit work)
Dawn Lucy of Fashion Should Be Fun (thanks to this stylish lady, I purchased my very first slip-on soles from H&M, in leopard print, but of course)
Dixie of Inside Outer Beauty (I’m always impressed by her ability to make the basic look completely fresh and chic)
Jane of My Midlife Fashion (not many possess that inexplicable talent of being able to transform the most mundane into cool, edgy ensembles, and this lady does)
And there’s me.
My entire outfit, with the exception of hat and booties, is from Poshmark. Wow, I didn’t really think about how much I shop on that app (and I hope neither is my man). The Camo top is from Madewell, the Denim & Leather Jeggings BCBG. Hat is from Forever 21 and fabulous Leopard Ankle Booties, a gift from my daughter. Oh and the bag? Gaultier, dahlink.
p/s please forgive this post for being laid out less than perfectly, I’m working using my iPad and I swear it hates me
