Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

I apologize for the quality of the photos below but I had to be sneaky. Stores don’t take too kindly when you’re photographing their merchandise in-store.

Behold the Kenzo tiger sweater. Cult and blogger favorite, retails for $255. Beautiful. url

Givenchy Shark Tooth Boots

Yeah, I’ve been on a Givenchy kick lately, but that’s only because Ricardo Tisci is a genius. I’m obsessed with these boots since I saw Kate Upton wear them in her July Vogue photo shoot. They seem like the perfect fall riding boot.

 

check them out here.

Givenchy Couture

Ricardo Tisci is at it again. This gorgeous fall couture fresh from Paris draws inspiration from the gypsies of southern Italy and 60s silhouettes. Can it get more Romantic than that? The photo set we’ve come to expect depicting the models from the front and back is complemented by a fitting German Shepard. The color palate is earthy and evokes a sense of nature. One in which the models emerge from the forest behind them. The gowns are accented with capes, fringe and hand beaded detailing.

Hot Trend: Printed Blouses

Here are 3 amazing printed blouses that are right on trend for this winter. Even though I am an advocate of solids and plaids, printed blouses can be a great statement piece for winter. It’s a perfect way to add color to your wardrobe in those grey cold months. They look great with dark denim, or a solid colored skirt (try american apparel).

Panther Attack!

I am really a big fan of this Givenchy Fall 2011 campaign. I bought a knock-off shirt from Zara (below) that has a panther intensely staring at onlookers, in a very similar manner as depicted in this scarf. Not as fierce but it still evokes the essence of the Givenchy campaign. I love the colors: blacks, purples, greens, and just the tiniest hint of yellow. To me, it’s a dark theme and I’m all about edginess and mystery.

Top Shop also has a tank that’s a gritting panther depicted below (I’m also a fan).
