Walking on the Wild Side

leopard booties 1

Taking a walk on the wild side with my new leopard booties and wearing faux fur and fringes for a wild style. I love imitating the look without harming animals.

My jacket is faux suede, faux trim with laces on pockets and cuffs.

Leopard from head to toe, with this velvety hat, made in Canada (thrifted) …

and leopard booties (non leather) that I bought recently at Hudson’s Bay, wearing them for the first time because there’s been too much slush and snow for these velvety dry-weather booties.

Version 2

My go-to purse made by Jeane & Jax (non-leather) with fringes from Drizzle and Shine eco-boutique. Hand warmers with cool fringes keep my hands warm while leaving fingers free.

Version 2

Accessories: velvet leopard hat, leopard print and crocheted eternity scarf, animal print bead necklace with matching earrings made in Canada, hand warmers with fringes. Displayed here on my leopard chair in my boudoir.

    Love how you’ve used the rule of three – hat, scarf and booties. This makes it classy and not overdone.

    My God, how much animal print in this post! Animal print, you already know, is not my favorite stamping. It is a dangerous pattern, because sometimes it can seem a bit tacky, although in others, depending on the design and the combination, it can even be elegant. It is evident that, dressed for you, nothing is tacky and everything is wonderful. You have managed to make even the excess adorable. I especially love your hat, a daring garment that gives you a slightly unknown look to me, more … daring, maybe? Your booties are fantastic and all your outfit is beautiful and colorful. Your outfit has surprised me, although I have captured, I believe, the essence and the message. I wanted to say that you remind me of some actress in a movie, but that is impossible, no actress has your beauty.

      Thank you ever so much Josep-Maria! I agree, animal print outfits can look tacky, no one looks better in animals prints than the animals. lol We must be careful to achieve a chic look by not overdoing it.

      Leopard was a pattern that my mother loved and bought pyjamas for both of us in the ’60s. Her look was more elegant than mine – never tacky, always classy. My look in this post is rather casual for a walk in nature. Hers was suitable to go to a party. I wish I had photos of her to show you, I wish she had a blog! 🙂

      I only started buying more animal prints since blogging and I confess, to an excess! I now have at least 10 animal print scarves (I must count them), coats and jackets, tops and cardigans, leggings and pants, booties and shoes, hat and jewellery. Oh my! I should wear all leopard just for fun, but that would be very tacky! Perhaps to a costume party. Ha ha ha! 🙂

      Thank you Ute! Wild is wonderful! 🙂 Don’t let the sun fool you, it’s colder than it looks. We only went for a 10 minute walk along the river with a beautiful view of nature and then walked over to a huge antique mall to warm up and enjoy browsing through. I bought one thing – a leopard scarf for $10. made in Italy, soft as cashmere but made with rayon. It’s a very subtle pattern and pale shade. I’ll add a photo later.

      Thanks so much Jodie! It’s my mom who got me started, she bought us both matching leopard jammies when I was a teenager. In those days, I wouldn’t be seen in public in leopard! Ha ha!
