ANIMAL INSTINCT

March 17, 2014

Animal prints again reign supreme this season, as they have for the last few years. By transcending the bad ( but sometimes fun ) fabrics of the 80s and 90s , this trend has avoided it's mistakes and stuck to key silhouettes in which it always works -  a little vintage inspired but finished in a far superior way. In the same way that nature's fauna never goes out of fashion , this trend will also never die. Designers may tire of it for a season or two but rest assured your investments will stay relevant for the rest of your life. Leopard print has become a staple in my wardrobe and I treat it as I would a neutral - paired with a black or white t-shirt or some simple pumps , it becomes an interesting pop for an otherwise bland outfit. Being a bit of a magpie, I do like leopard on leopard with a lot of gold jewellery to offset the look  - but then again I do feel like I missed the 80s and I'm forever trying to make up for it! Here are some things high on my wishlist at the moment...Swoon!

Clockwise from top left:

1) Dolce & Gabanna bra
2) Giuseppe Zanotti sandals
3) Saint Laurent sequin leopard skirt
4) Valentino flats
5) Balmain t-shirt
6) Camilla & Marc dress
7) Proenza Schouler bag
8) Roberto Cavalli cuff
9) Saint Laurent shoes
10) Versus skirt

Once upon a time, when I was a teenager, I was a goth (4 lyf ) and I would never, in a million years wear white - the thought of that would be as repelling as listening to love songs after midnight, wearing Stan Smith sneakers, gold jewellery or any kind of pretty thing..and God […]

Choosing eveningwear can be tricky – I never know if I should buy something basic that I will wear again and again or something that takes my breath away. In the end, it is always the heart stoppers that win my inner debate. Why? Because these pieces hold the power to make me feel something […]
