OOTD: Colorblocking & Leopard Print

I promised you guys an OOTD wearing my new black Prada slingbacks and my new blue YSL clutch that I did reveals for a little while back here and here.  Well I thought I'd combine them into one OOTD :)

This outfit is my take on colorblocking.  I'm not entirely sure I really followed this current trend correctly. 

HAHA. 

I'll be honest with you guys I'm not really one to follow trends - I kind of just wear things that I like - how I like to wear them.  Mostly because I'm not 6 feet tall and or a size 2.. some trends are just not made for everyone.

ie. Harem pants.  Or as the hubs calls it HAMMER TIME PANTS!

I looked like a total turd in them.  

(In case you were wondering they have since become really comfy PJ's but the hubs still affectionately shouts out "HAMMER TIME DUN NA NA NAH" whenever I wear them heh.)

  2. OMGGGG your shoes are gorgeous! Are they hard to walk in? Every time I am abt to trip in my heels I have to quickly get up & try to make it seem like I did it on purpose LMAO I've gotten quite good at it.

    Love the makeup too! You should do a FOTD sometime ^^

  3. Awww cute! I agree with you about certain trends not being good on a person. I can't wear maxi dresses or ankle length capri type trousers. That clutch is actually a really good size! I thought it was a lot more smaller.

  5. Love the outfit!!!

    I agree with the not all trends fit everyone. i'm freaking short and i'm on the chubby side too :p so i try to just find things that flatter my body shape rather than get into the trend :p

  17. Words cannot express how in love I am with this clutch.
    Seriously.
    And these shoes.
    Okay, you just look 100% adorable. I want to take you home with me.
    Not in a gay way.
    But in a let's-be-BFFs-forever-and-ever kind of way.
    And that's not weird at all.

  29. you look stunning! haha your hubs is so funny. harem pants don't look good on me either, it actually looks quite aweful on me i think since i'm pretty short lol!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I was expecting hammer time pants in this post! hahaha perhaps next time? :) I think you did a great job with the colorblocking. I actually prefer a darker color paired with a bright, as opposed to two brights. Hope you had a great long weekend, Lisa!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Hahaha I totally understand you about not following trends...I absolutely cannot do harem pants either. I don't think 99% of the population can.

  40. I think the same way about trends. I wear stuff the way I like to wear them and not how others say they're supposed to be worn. I love your color-blocking, btw! It's very Lisa, especially with the tights and those lovely shoes!

    ps. I call harem pats "hammer" pants! but I don't care, because they're so comfy!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Lisa, These shoes are amazing and you look great, the black leggings and heels make your legs look so long. I really like the leopard scarf on you and your makeup and hair is flawless...as usual.

    Oh yea, I like how you made fun of harem pants and him singing...those pants are seriously horrible. LOL. Color blocking is so fun, I want to try that soon!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I love the color blocking trend this season :) Your outfit looks great Lisa. I love how you paired it with the leopard scarf and those beautiful heels. Haha I have never quite understood the harem pants trend myself either.

    ReplyDelete
  43. This outfit make you look like you are a fashion editor,Lisa! Love how you add a sassy piece of leopard print scarf to this outfit.

    Boy, harem pants do NOT look good on everyone and very few people can rock them. I am too chicken too try them. I really think you would look good in them (black harem pants) with these heels and a basic tee/top.

  44. Love the shoes (as usual)! :D

  51. Lurve the clutch! Beautiful colour really :O

    ReplyDelete
  52. This might be one of my favorite outfits on you. While in line with the trend, it still has a classic feel. The shoes are to die for and you know I have my eye on the clutch! I'm the same when it comes to trends - I try to incorporate a few each season but with my own twist as I'm no 6' tall super model either.

    yeah i can't do all the trends, most of the trends are for tall stick-skinny bitches w/long legs. HAHA =P.

  62. I'd have to agree.. trends aren't for everyone.. and I'm definitely no where near being a size two and I don't desire it. I think you did a fab job at color blocking, Lisa!! and OHMYGOSH, the heels are freakin' AMAZEBALLS! What size are you? Can I borrow? lol.

    xx Love & Aloha

  65. Loving your colour blocking outfit!!! Especially the hot pink! ;) As for harem pants, I desperately want a pair LOL! But since I'm saving for paris trip and other random *guilty* pleasures I've decided to just stick with last years wardrobe for my wallets sake.....but there's a budget for new shoes....I mean common, if I don't buy new clothes I gotta haves me some new shoes and I swear those Marc Jacob mouse flats are squeaking my name!!!! I think you look gorgeous in colours so don't be afraid to rock them!
