I Killed a Leopard & Threw it on my Back, Jeremy Scott Style

JS leopard  3

Yawn, yes, even your mum has most probably seen/heard/read about the Jeremy Scott x Adidas Originals collaboration by now. Pictures and information of this collab have been floating around since Autumn last year! But this won't stop me from expressing my love for the goodies, especially as yesterday was the first time I spotted the SS09 in store! I think it has been in store for a month or less now, but helloooo I have been housebound for how long due to my academic studies. Give me a break!

The dudes and I went to the Originals store and Selfridges to check out the goods and we were super excited! Be warned, if you want a piece of JS x Adidas action...forget about going to Selfridges because they bump the price up of each piece by a good £10-£20!! I was shocked, definitely go to the Adidas Originals store. Unless of course its a last resort, for instance, the above leopard fleece hoody was only sold at Selfridges.

The leopard fleece hoody (paws and tails included) was a steep £150 :-( but how cute is it?! I was just trying it on to see how silly I looked but I love it!!! Its too adorable and I feel like a kid playing dress up, as my friend (Coco Pine - check the bitch out y'all!) noted it looks like I just fell out of "Where The Wild Things At" land, which is pretty darn fitting seen as it is my all time favourite chidren's book, along with "A Necklace of Raindrops" (dope kids book). Granted, it does look like I just killed a leopard - skinned and gutted it - and threw it on my back as a form of outwear, but that just adds to my fantasy imagination and all the fun of the jacket, no? I truly adore every detail of the hoody, and it plays a little on those Bape shark 'zip all the way up to the head' hoodies but 100 times better, sweeter and less overplayed. Like for real, paws and a tail? *I heart*!

The only thing I fear if I ever bought this and wore it around my area on the London streets, are the stupid fools who will no doubt pull my tail. I wouldn't mind the stares or laughs so much (they clearly do not understand) but the pulling of the tail would seriously push my buttons, and I would be tempted to turn around and claw at them.

150 odd pounds is a hella lot of cashmonies so I can only hope it drops in the sale, if it ever reaches to that stage! I also wanted the leopard print t-shirt but £40 (£50 in Selfridges!) was also too steep for my purse, I have holidays to save up for and my mummy and daddy are not the rich folks who fund my life!

The on trend, less sporty and more fashionable items from the Jeremy Scott collab were much more expensive. Items with thrills, fringing, sequins and also the black and white cup, cropped corset top (effing love this piece) started from around £150, so I gladly touched and admired without looking too shocked.

Me & my sister obviously couldn't leave empty handed; one of us had to get something. It was between the leopard print t-shirt for me, because if you don't know, I am quite fond of the odd animal print, and a zip-up leopard print jacket for my sister. £45 for the tee and £70 for the jacket....we chose the jacket of course! It seemed a lot more worth the money and it is the HOTNESS!!! I love it, on my sister, I look like a right dweeb wearing it. She looks so cool and I'm going to be a proud big sister walking next to here when she wears it :-D. This was one of the cheapest JS Adidas Originals pieces and totally worth the £70, and we were even more psyched as we saved £10 because it was £80 in Selfrigdes!

This is what I wore on one of the rare outings that actually requires me to take a break and leave my house. Its a very old dress that belonged to above sister aged 10. My mum found it whilst going through a cleaning frenzy.

teminators

Those Nike Terminators....! There was a lot of Internet news floating around for these badboys and everyone was under the assumption these were going to be an Asia release only. Could you believe my shock when I saw them?! I want them so bad....but £85....! I've been so good, and have not bought a single pair of kicks since I came back from New York in February....should I break my trainer fast?? I'm in two minds...and plus I want the Nylon x Nike dunks that I mentioned in previous posts here and here...which are to be released on June 1st!

Help??

Sheeett its almost 5pm and I have not written a single word for my dissertation, which by the way is about the subculture of trainers...! Easier said than done, I promise you! If I don't do 1000 words today I will be royally bummed....

I would die for that jacket. The tail behind got me.

Kay said...

Fantastic choice, that's actually not bad for a jacket either! The first one was a bit on the steep side... and I have a feeling you may have been right about people pulling on the tail.

Love that hoody and the tail is too cute but you're right, people will pull that tail which would drive me insane too!

The jacket your sis got is pretty awesome though. Totally borrow it if you manage to get it to work for you!

Your dissertation is so you! Do you get to illustrate it with lots of pics?

I looooove the jacket that your sister got - still got leopard print with the added bonus that no one would be able to tug the tail. I love your dress as well! I've only got horrible 90s clothes from when I was ten like a velour striped t-shirt from marks and spencers! (Yes really... completely disgusting) :) x
