Capsule wardrobe #128 - leopard print, part II

Continuing the capsule wardrobe series with another episode of Faux Fuchsia's style challenge


Look #5 - Inspired by spring, framing the leopard with pink




Capsule wardrobe pieces:  leopard print shirt, pale pink cardigan and black trousers 
Shoes: black ballet flats
Accessories: Hermès 'Carré Kantha' 90 Carré and clic H bracelet in black.  MaiTai Collection waterfall necklace in black
Scarf tying method: Scarf folded in the basic bias fold and placed around the waist. The ends are secured behind your back in the basic slide, with a MaiTai Collection Grande Classique scarf ring in black horn (you can tie the ends into a double knot instead).


Look #6 - same as above, only in an autumn inspired variation (FauxFuchsia's autumn has just begun...click here to visit her blog). Replacing the pink scarf and cardigan with warm and rusty colors, and tying the scarf  around the neck for warmth.

    1. The pink would be perfect companion for the beautiful spring in Barcelona, my dearest ilsa! I have not found a new scarf yet, but then again, I have not seen that many. There are some I like, but then the CWs don't suit me, or if they do, I'm not too crazy about the design. Hope the right one will come along eventually! Have a wonderful weekend x

  2. Dearest MaiTai,

    After looking at this gorgeous post. I started to think that maybe I should give the leopard a chance.:-)
    You made some fantastic combinations! I do like them! What is it you can´t do, my dear?
    You are such a great source of inspiration!!! I can´t find words, really.
    Love both looks!!! Don´t you think something similar could be done with snake pattern or leopard in blue and grey?

    Thank you for bringing so much joy into my days <3 Manuela''

    1. Dear Manuela,
      you found exactly the words, which my feelings best discribe:
      MaiTai is bringing so much joy into my days, as well!
      Sometimes I really feel like a young "groupie", but now I know, I have some "sisters" all over the world feeling the same...
      Best wishes from (sunny) germany

    4. Dearest Manuela, you'd rock leopard!! I can see us all becoming a feline gang, thanks to FF! Re your question, I think all of the looks would go with snake print (or any other print), and also with leopard in blue/grey (just adjust the wardrobe/accessory colors accordingly). Have a GRRREAT weekend! x

      Dearest Claudia and Lea, my lovely sweet sisters! It's such a joy to hang out with you here, and so much fun to share our passions and thoughts. Thanks so much for making this such a happy and lively place! Hugs to you both x

  5. Oh my God there's MORE!!!!

    I really love the pale pink cardy with the scarf-as-belt. So pretty.

    I have a really good style challenge for you next time Maitai.

    Sequins. Yes that's right. Sequins. Or beading.

    Surely scarves can live in harmony with them? xxx

  9. Both looks are divine, although I'm bonkers for the autumn look. ( I only own one pink blouse...not much of a pink person) Isn't it wonderful how leopard prints actually coordinate with so many different patterns and colours?! Now I DO have loads of leopard in my wardrobe, including the Celine luggage tote (sorry Hermes). I wish that Hermes would make a leopard Picotin or Bolide. A leopard bag is uber sophisticated when wearing all black. Come on Hermes!!

    1. I like the pink look too, and the funny thing is that I'm not much of a pink person, and I certainly haven't been a leopard person for the last thirty years! Taking to leopard though! Looking forward to winter already, and to teaming it with black (I say YES to a Picotin in leopard).. Have a great weekend x

  12. Would never have thought to mix baby pink with leopard but you look amazing. Such a pretty but discretely sexy look. Susan, London

    1. I would have never thought to mix leopard with anything ;-) This challenge has been such an eye-opener!

  13. MT, I think you're having way too much fun with this! I never would have thought of pairing leopard with pale pink, but it works and adds a soft and feminine touch to the cat print.

    I love the cinnamon combination, though. As our beloved Tony the Tiger (probably known only to the US contingent) would say . . . GRRRRRREAT!

    Now, here's the question. After you've completed FF's challenge (and moved on to her next one), will you continue to wear your leopard-print pieces? Have they grown on you?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes, they have grown on me! I particularly love the cardigan, perhaps because of the cooler colors. I've worn it quite a lot, and hope summer is not coming too quickly. Glad Tony the Tiger approves, might add tiger stripes one day!

  14. By the way I remember, I had a leopard skirt, it was not too short, nor too tied but right and I wore it with a silk shirt and a beige cardigan and a brown H birkin. It wad vety chic.
