On the Prowl

9.20.10dI had no idea what to wear this morning. If you could see my closet right now, you, my mother and the producers of Hoarders would be disappointed in me. I even took a picture of it to show you guys, but my pride stopped me. That’s how messy my closet is right now, my pride is even disappointed in me.
So per my usual Monday morning fuzziness, I wandered into my closet pulled out this skirt because it was the only thing still hanging and thought, “hey you look like someone I know.” Then this image popped into my brain.
streetstyle2869{photo cred}Bingo.
I grabbed my blazer, a white tank and heels. How easy is that? That might have been the easiest part of my day, but I forgive you Monday. I’d be cranky if I were you too.

  5. I have got to get a leopard print skirt. I have seen them on many a stylish blogger, and still haven't found one to call my own. You look wonderful today.

    I love this look! It's definitely something I could wear to work, which is slightly unusual to find on a style blog. Also, on a side note, I like the site redesign!

  11. This is a fabulous look! I've had my eye on an animal print pencil skirt for quite some time. This made me want to get it even more!

    that skirt (and outfit, and header!) is so so great!

    Today I posted an outfit titled Howl (rhymes with Prowl!) but involved wolves, not cheetahs.

    Happy Tuesday!

    Don't feel bad about your closet. All of us have 1 or 2 or 7 of those messes in our homes :)

    Hi Kendi! I just wanted to let you know that I love your style because it is very corporate friendly! My fashion sense has improved drastically since I saw your blog :) Thanks for always being an inspiration :)

    You're giving me bright ideas again on what to wear next week! :)

  28. I love that leopard skirt! I actually tried it on at Loft a few weekends ago, but pencil skirts can look very odd on me. I'm jealous that you have the body for pencil skirts and poofy skirts!

    I may have to recreate the look for myself, minus the leopard pencil skirt, because I don't have one (sad!)

    Love this look – I love that skirt!! So chic and easy…

    I have a feeling that if the producers of Hoarders saw my room right now, they would be cackling in glee as well :)

    I love it, Kendi! When my closet is a super Hoarder mess disaster (as it often is), I can rarely make it out of there alive. Or well put together!

  47. That is so funny, I saw the same photo and did the look on Saturday, no photo, sorry. Bingo wins every time.
    Note to Miss Vinyl Ahoy: (weird cuz I'm on Kendi's blog) are you sad I bought your leopard print skirt? I can return it, slightly worn. That is all.

  48. I love this outfit, and the outfit that inspired it! I think both might need to make it into my inspiration folder. And then I need to go out and purchase a eopard print skirt, cause I'm smitten. xx

    I may have to go and get that skirt
