This kitty is wild at heart ……………

Photobucket

It has been a while since my last outfit post. This outfit was quite random but yet turned out to be fun and quite trendy. I originally planned to wear a skirt and a button up blouse but Mother Nature’s atmospheric conditions took a different route and so did my outfit. Instead I opted for this vintage 80s light wool dress in pull over style which is just perfect on a chilly fall Nashville day and threw over my recently thrifted leopard cardigan labeled Express. The Fabric is super soft as well.

Otherwise I really don’t have much to say for this post except that I appreciate all the love from all the new readers and older ones too who emailed and asked for my return. It meant a lot and I love you all very much.

In case you were inspired by my look and want to experiment a little, I found this article below and thought I’d share!

How to Wear an Animal Print
In the past those who wore leopard-print occupied a strange no-person's land. According to Alexander animal print “treads” a fine line between tarty and tasteful.
However, anything goes this season from a single piece to top-to-toe:
•Fashion’s golden rule has always been to keep animal print to one single piece and keep the rest of your outfit simple. The safest way to wear animal print is sparingly!
•Pair leopard print with beige or black to keep it chic and refined.
•Dip a toe into the trend by adding a leopard print accessory to a plain outfit. This could be a scarf, a hat, some tights, gloves, a structured bag or a pair of cute kitten heels.
•For a real celebrity look break the rules by mixing and matching prints. However, this look is not for the faint-hearted. Keep accessories to a minimum to keep it chic.
•Go for good quality fabrics. Cheap material can look less than chic when it’s an animal print.

I love all the brown and black in this outfit, you look spectacular!

I've never much liked leopard print and am still extremely leary of it, but two ways I've liked it worn recently:
leopard print tights and shoes, together, with an otherwise neutral outfit

big, ridiculously fake and yet very fluffy looking coats. But only if they're really fake!

Bonjour Fabiola!

Thanks for stopping by today. I do love this looks. The cognac brown and black are so classic. Pining over your brown bag, currently on the lookout for one of my own.
