Inspired by Virginie Mouzat, I decided to style this Helmut Lang sweater very simply, and accent with my favorite pair of leopard boots. I purchased it last week from the Net-a-Porter sale. (It’s now sold out there, still available and on sale at Neiman Marcus.) I’d also ordered the Elizabeth and James leopard cardigan which, as I’d feared, pretty much swallowed me whole. They were sold out of the smaller size at the time, but I’m going to continue to stalk it in case it becomes available again. But I do love this HL sweater. It’s soft, light, drapes well with nice movement and swing. Sweet Spot: hit.
I wore this outfit Saturday night to an impromptu evening out. Impromptu, because our sitter showed up unexpectedly (we’d previously thought he was unavailable). We grab our little miracles where we can. 😉 It’s almost impossible to get last-minute weekend reservations at popular restaurants in LA but we often can get a seat at the bar and order from the dinner menu while enjoying a more convivial atmosphere, so that’s what we did.
