I had been umming and ahhing about trying leopard print for the last year or so. That it has been such a trend has been a good and bad thing; things you like coming in to fashion is great for their availability, but then not so good for... well, I don't know how to put it. But I think you know what I mean.
I had been lusting after a pair of leopard print tights at Sportsgirl last Autumn, and then a pair of peeptoe strappy – and chunky! – heels in the big kitty print caught my eye on Asos. I love the idea of wearing these together. But for one reason or another, I didn't make the leap (ha!). So, when I saw this silk leopard print skirt at my local op shop, I was pleased to have a chance to give it a try without any big commitments.
I like the colours in this version of the classic print – not too yellow, and not too small. The skirt itself is a great shape, with a bit of flare and falling just below my knee. And, of course, who doesn't like wearing silk?
It got much colder in Melbourne over the last week, so I finally had a chance to wear my big fluffy collar! I love these. I have a large vintage fur collar, but this one feels good for everyday use. It is so warm! I will be toasty all winter. x
