White Stripes







Wearing: Topshop faux fur zebra jacket, vintage dress and Nicholas Kirkwood heels.

At first I wasn't quite sure how to wear this zebra print faux fur jacket. Animal prints aren't really my thing but I fell in love with the plush texture and allure of having something so bold in my closet. Admittedly it's very reminiscent of the types of pencil cases and cosmetic bags you buy for cheap at Daiso but it's definitely bringing me out of my comfort zone. Styling it is a challenge but a fun one that I much prefer over say, trying to write an essay after work or putting a collage together. Plus it gave me a chance to take these gorgeous Nicholas Kirkwood shoes out for a spin in all their avant garde glory. I've been pleasantly surprised about how much wear I've gotten out of this vintage pastel piece as well which has suddenly become my go-to staple piece. It has a very feminine silhouette (in terms of traditional Western values that is) which I've tried to wear a number of ways but this is perhaps one of the most outlandish.
