Daytime Dare: On the Prowl

Ok, Tartelettes, the latest Daytime Dare should come as no surprise—leopard print. I set it up for you in last week’s lust list—and if you are even remotely familiar with moi, you know how nuts I go for print dell’animale. I’ve blogged it, coveted it and worn it. Now, it’s your turn to step inside the wild kingdom. I know it may seem non-sensical, but leopard print can be a wonderful neutral when done right.

And these are your rules for the game:
1. No more than two leopard pieces at once. No kind of “cat lady” is good.
2. Start with a conventional neutral base—black, white, brown—but make the print pop with a bold color. No time to be a ‘fraidy-cat.
3. Pace yourself. First time wrangling the cat? Go for gloves, a scarf or bag for just a touch of leopard fierce. Move on to a classic coat or sexy top when you feel more comfortable.
4. Most importantly, when you wear leopard print, strut your stuff like it’s nobody’s business. Those possibly dirty looks from coworkers in basic black and not-so-novel navy? Hateration Nation, honey. So what if you prefer your coffee with a side of cat, not cream ;)
So, follow Mimi’s leopard laws and unleash your inner chic kitten! Me-wow!

Fall 09 Trend Alert: Heavy Metal

Nodding our heads to Kiss, Van Halen & Metallica might not exactly be our thing, but channeling their heavy metal wardrobe this fall does seem about right! With fall 09 fashion beginning to hit the stores, keep your eyes peeled for some chic and fierce trends that mimic the style of these hard rock legends. Look out for deep rich hues, lots of leather & STUDDED EMBELLISHMENTS! This peak-shoulder Balmain number is amaaaazing— I only wish I could rock such a hot get-up! But translating haute runway to reality is definitely doable. I love these geometrical prints from Louis Vuitton, tarte and Cesare Paciotti. So this fall, are YOU ready to rock?
