Leopard Bottom Jeans

2.16.12d{Similar Shirt, Jeans, Clutch, Heels}
Well I’m back in town and $30 lighter from, sadly, the penny slots. I didn’t dare to really gamble, because let’s be honest — I’ve got chump written all over me.
 So I picked up these jeans at Target a few weeks back for $23 (yes for less than my Vegas loss). After seeing these in all of my magazines, I knew I had to find me a pair.  Although completely smitten with the idea of wearing leopard print on over 60% of my body, I wasn’t convinced that I could pull them off.  But for $20 (and a bag of Sour Patch Kids) I thought why not? I’ll try any trend for around $20. You can quote me on that.

    Way to work the leopard jeans! I was really hoping that with the leopard bottom jeans, you’d be wearing boots with the fur.

    Oh my gosh, Kendi!!! How crazy! I most definitely wore this same exact outfit yesterday! Leopard skinnies, denim shirt, and red michael kors heels! How funny! It makes me feel good about my style though, because you chose to wear it as well 🙂 love your blog- thanks for sharing! Check out mine if you have some time! I will be posting my twin outfit sometime soon!

    So ever since I over-did the whole leopard print thing while being a “rebellious punk rocker” in high school, I never thought I could look at a pair of leopard print pants again without gaging. BUT you have broke the spell, I am now convinced that they can look amazing if done right 🙂 What a great look Kendi! <3

    You know what, I think those pants are something I like on you but not me. I think you have to be skinny (like yourself) to wear spotted pants without feeling like you look like the animal the print is named for. Kuddos to you for having the figure to pull them off!!

    I just bought those very jeans yesterday!  I am going to style them with black platforms, a teal tank top, and a black puffy sleeve jacket.  I love how you paired them with a denim shirt.  I’ll try that for a casual day look.

    I didn’t know Target has leopard jeans now. I’ve been looking for a relatively cheap pair. Very cute, especially paired with the chambray top!

  143. Ok, so I adore this entire ensemble, but my favorite part by far is the pop of color with those AMAZE-ing shoes… nice work lady!

    I tried these on the other day but in the gray color. I really like the brown ones you have on Kendi, but they were all out of stock. I’m going to check online.

  146. $30 is not bad… I mean I went when I was 3 months away from 21… So I have yet to go and loose any money. (Unfortunately my Dad lost some money since he hosted my junior year Vegas shopping trip…) But those jeans, super adorable/totally-amazing! And I just plain love the red shoes. Mine are about 5 years old. That’s a good excuse to get some new ones that are in style right?!?!

    Never really liked leopard print jeans, but these ones look great because they are toned down. I love how you paired them with the denim shirt.

    I think that these could also be cute cuffed with some bright flats. I really like cuffing skinny pants.

  159. I feel out of the loop because I have never heard of your blog until today and I am so glad I found it because I love it! I am a fashion design student at FIT in NYC and am so tired of the same fashion blogs and you are a breath of fresh air and an instant new favorite. I will be following 🙂

  164. GIRL. I have been reading your blog for a while now and this is the first time I’ve ever commented. This post epitomizes why you are my favorite fashion blogger (and I read a LOT of them). Five minutes ago I was reading Brooklyn Blonde’s NYFW post and was like “OMG, I HAVE THOSE JEANS.” Imagine how cool I felt, owning her jeans and not even knowing it. I was all “Yup, I’ve arrived. I don’t even have to run out and copy what the bloggers are doing…it’s all just ALREADY IN MY CLOSET.” Come to find out, her skinnies were Current Elliots that cost $198. 

    I couldn’t help but think “What a sucker.” Not me, HER. For paying such an outrageous price for jeans that I couldn’t distinguish from my own Target pair.

    Five minutes later, I read your post on my blogroll and feel totally vindicated. There is nothing fashionable about an outfit that costs upward of $1000. ANYBODY can look good at that price. My true fashion icons are the ones who pull it together for less than the average yearly income of a man in Ghana. Thanks for rockin’ it and keepin’ it real, sista. You da bomb.
