it's a jungle out there.


My previous post was all about the eternal hold that black (and it's various lighter shaded friends) has over my style choices and here I find myself wearing not one, but two leopard/ tiger/ animal print pieces. Say it ain't so. I have a penchant for loose fit shorts - denim, leather, gym and now I guess leopard. They're about the one thing that make my legs look longer and less stumpy (excluding the painfully inconvenient high heel). With my 'basics' wardrobe looking, well, fairly basic, there's always room for the odd print or coloured piece to sneak it's way in unobtrusively when I'm feeling adventurous. But I've never been partial to leopard. It must be that horrible association to the tacky faux fur coats or poorly printed cropped tops/ leggings. Don't get me wrong, I've always wanted to own a pair of leopard loafers. 

Leopard dislike aside, the moment I saw Christine walking towards me sporting her Kenzo cap, which I had tried so hard to hunt down months earlier, I just had to knick it off her for our post-shoot shoot (stay tuned for our next collab). And that's the story of how I came into possession of a double animal print affair. A rare occurrence that might be the first and last time you see me looking like this.

  1. I'm a fan of the leopard print, but I think a lot of it has to do with the way it's presented, and as you say, it can look tacky rather easily.

    And you look gorgeous in Christine's Kenzo cap !
