{GBF LIfe + Style} Eye of the Tiger

I don't think I've ever loved a sweatshirt like I do my green Kenzo tiger sweater. It's just quite difficult to find any redeeming style qualities about an item that's usually bulky, plain, and all around drab. And aside from my beloved cardinal and gold USC sweatshirts which I wear religiously, I never cared for any others until I laid my eyes on this one. The bright emerald green color is unusual while the embroidered tiger makes a playful attention grabbing statement. I love the fit and thickness as it's layerable under jackets but can also be layered over shirts and blouses. I'm not peeling my sweatshirt off until the green fades to straw and the tiger shrinks to a cat. 

The sweatshirt's versatility was magnified when I took it around the the block a few weeks ago. I wore this outfit to the Perry Ellis spring/summer collection preview held at Eveleigh (one of my favorite Weho restaurants). I was floored by the livening style direction of the brand as its Nantucket splashes of color and Princeton prep style aesthetics truly captured my attention. After the event, I headed to downtown LA to watch the Lakers clinch their spot in the playoffs. That was the last time I saw Kobe play. But the man is a beast and I'm sure he'll go in beast mode and recover in no time. Staring into the eye of a tiger is a walk in the park for the Black Mamba.
