Outfit Post: Animal Overkill

Lions and tigers and leopards, oh my! Prowling the urban jungle in animal overkill.
How many animal references can you smoosh into an outfit? If you answer to the name of Bella, the answer is five.  As in three big cats and two servings of galavanting giraffe. Toss in a foxy Tyrolean plaid for no good reason, and we've got something to see on a Tuesday, don't we?

#SHOPSECONDHANDFIRST: 5 out of the 6 items were thrifted. The 6th item was acquired new, and is USA made.
Now Wearing: 
  • Vintage 1960s brown plaid "Tyrolean" faux fur fedora
  • Dana Buchman silk tiger print blazer 
  • Vintage 1970s giraffe brooch
  • Megan in limited edition leopard print, c/o Karina Dresses
  • "Vegan" leather "Cat" tapestry duffle bag, SOLD
  • Bruno Valenti "Wanda" giraffe print pony-hair booties
I'll be joining Adrienne and Jill for How I Wear My Animal Print 
as well as linking up to Judith's monthly Hat Attack

I love animal print clothes and bags and shoes. So I do own quite a bit of it. I have a similar jacket and dress, snake shoes etc. But those boots... hmmm I will have a look at your Etsy shop. They are nice.
Trust you to combine all of it and get away with it as well.

Grooowwwllll! Fantastic look! I am of the opinion that there is no such thing as too much leopard print- it's a neutral, after all! xx
