* Vintage green scarf worn as a belt.

Before you go judging this head to to leopard print pajama-esque outfit as crazy bag lady rather than chic, think of how you’d react to it if you saw it on a woman just leaving the Paris fashion shows or on a street style blog or photographed by Scott Schuman or worn by Garance Doré… just to name a few. Not that they would wear this exact ensemble but I’ve seen many an outfit applauded that is just straight lunacy but because it’s dubbed “stylish” by “the right people”, everyone else agrees too. But that doesn’t necessarily mean those agreeable outsiders choose to don it themselves, but rather enjoy being agreeable from a distance. Now, I’m not saying that I dislike my choice of wardrobe here {or that it is incredibly chic} BUT, it was very fun to wear and more eclectic than I usually gravitate towards, and I liked it very much. Taking risks in fashion is of all things, risky, yet I hear woman exclaiming just that all the time. Fashion is a way to invent and reinvent yourself and to make life a little more colorful and fun. So JUMP! Seriously, what’s the worst that could happen? Some insecure person makes fun of you? Snore… all the more fun ;)

please note: I am not encouraging you to shop, especially if your budget won’t allow it. In fact, running up credit card debt for the latest trends is a risk in an of itself and I do not advise it. But I am encouraging you to get creative with what you already have in your closet and/or to thrift shop for unique-one-of-a-kind items that no one else has.

    Couldn’t agree more! And, you rock! I love it (except maybe the shoe choice for the outfit but like you say, not everyone will like everything all of the time and frankly, who cares?).x

    Love it, especially the green scarf, reminiscent of the movie “Confessions of a Shopaholic,” which I loved!

    I encourage us all to occasionally take fashion risks and experiment with new looks. I posted a similar wide leg pants look, sans leopard, on Monday. A few of my family members said I looked like a homeless or bag lady, but others thought it was chic.

    I like it but I think I would have liked it better with black pumps. I found the red distracting from the interesting break of shirt and pants.

    Oh and I’m a McQueen wannabe, check it out!

    Who doesn’t enjoy rocking the boat with an eccentric carpet bag lady outfit once in a while? Fashion isn’t supposed to be about always look perfect and completely acceptable, it’s supposed to be fun!

    I especially love the scarf tied as a bow in your hair; it’s definitely something that would go along with so much more.

    I love your daring! Having fun with clothing and life is the way to go.

    :) Ewa

    I love it! I don’t think it looks like a bag lady outfit! (But maybe that’s because I read too many streetstyle blogs.)

    Truth be told there’s something about the shoes that just isn’t winking at me. Maybe the patent? Or the style? It’s not the color, just the style of the shoes. Other than that its super-duper cute!!

    I’m not hating, just feel like it is over accessorized and the pants are too short. But like you said, no risk, no reward. And the pants are just insane in that good?/bad? way. :) You’re hair looks really pretty, I love it when you have it all blonded out!

    I finally found a little time to catch up on some blogs today and yours never disappoint. I actually love love this outfit! I think it’s very chic. You see, I tend to gravitate towards outfits like that, because it screams creativity and shows the world that you’re a confident fashionista. This is one of my favorites for sure! If you ever looked at my blog, you’d see that I love animal prints;)

    Xoxo,
