Wild Streak: Part 2

The inspiration for yesterday’s post, Wild Streak, featuring chic interiors with a touch of leopard came to be because I recently received an absolutely gorgeous leopard coat (very similar to Sienna Miller’s above) from my dear friend, Betty, so I have had leopard on my mind even more than usual. Betty happens to be one of the chicest women I know as well as the owner of A Bientot, my favorite boutique in Houston. I love the coat so much and know that I will wear it forever since it is the kind of thing that will never go out of style. A leopard coat is chic, glamorous, timeless, and as you’ll see in this collection of inspiration images, it is actually super versatile. It can be ladylike or edgy; paired with neutrals, all black, or a combination of colors. Leopard is a neutral after all!

{If you love the idea of leopard coat that you’ll wear forever as much as I do, you’ll be thrilled to know that Emerson Fry recently re-released their chic Wingtip Coat in Leopard Linen from a couple of seasons ago. I lusted over it for a while and then lamented the fact that it sold out, so I am super excited to see it’s back! It’s selling out quickly, so don’t hesitate to order before they’re gone again. Emerson Fry has lots of great neutrals to pair with it, too!

Seeing Red

While I only wear red from time to time and don’t have a stitch of it in my home’s decor, I have been seeing red lately! Known to symbolize love, passion, courage, success, and even rage, red certainly isn’t for the faint of heart. Perhaps it is because red is so inextricably linked with the Christmas season or because I have been feeling ultra-motivated lately, but like a moth to a flame, I can’t help but be drawn to this powerful color.

Think Pink

{An Über-Chic Pink Room in Ines de la Fressange’s Home}

Seeing as how October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, it only seems right to celebrate the color pink and everything it represents. The color pink comes in a plethora of shades and is typically associated with the traits of compassion, nurturing, and love. I’ve always been a fan of pink, particularly in its brighter incarnations. I think some people mistakenly believe that pink is girly and meek, but quite the opposite is true. While pink can be feminine and ethereal, it is also a very powerful color. It takes moxie to wear pink or to commit to a pink sofa, pink walls, or a bright pink front door as seen above. You’ll notice in my round-up below that pink works in just about any space in various applications and it looks just as fabulous whether you’re dressed for day or evening. Are you a fan of pink? Admittedly, it isn’t a color that I wear very often, but I do have quite a few pops of pink throughout my home. This month, I challenge you to “Think Pink”!
