leopard legs

Leggings, Blouse & Tank- Material Girl (The Bay); Shoes & Square Earrings- Spring; Purse, Spike Bracelets & Triangle Earrings- Aldo; Sunglasses- Zellers
Leopard print worn two posts in a row? Told you I was an addict! These photos were taken a few weeks ago (you can tell by the old hairstyle!) after participating in Place d'Orleans Vlogger Search contest.  During the live shop-off we were given 1.5 hours and $200 to shop the mall.  The challenge was to find trendy pieces for fall 2012 that demonstrated: shapes, patterns, textures & colours.

For the shapes category I found these funky geometric earrings at Aldo for $8 & this high-low (aka mullet) blouse at The Bay for $35.

For patterns I chose amazing leopard print leggings at The Bay for $28 and tortoiseshell sunglasses from Zellers for $10.

Textures included a pair of delicate spiked flats from Spring for $40; spike bracelets from Aldo for $12; a quilted pleather bag from Aldo for $35 and the studded collar on the blouse. 

For hot fall colours I gravitated towards a couple of my favourites- cobalt blue in the purse and plum in the blouse. 

From head-to-toe I'm trending for fall with a Tinfoil Tiaras flare!

What's your favourite fall trend?


  1. Ohh how fabulous are these leggings! I love all the spikes and studs you chose for this outfit!

  4. your hair looks fabulous up like that! you look so cute with bangs, but it's nice to see all of that pretty face too :) and cobalt blue is basically the best color ever, and that quilted crossbody bag is precious . I love this look :)

  5. I love how detailed your whole outfit is. all those studs are totally fierce and I want those flats now even though I actually don't need any. and that collar makes me want to do a DIY to have something similar. great look, Emily!
