Leopardprint Love!!

A lot of lovely bloggers are commenting on leopard print. For me its a yay, as it is such a great trend that comes in and out of fashion and is always stylish.

This is an 80s/90s leopardprint fitted shirtdress that I found at the Salvation Army a few months back. I may well wear it in winter with black opaque tights, black scarf and black leather jacket to brighten up a miserable winters day!! I also have a faux fur vintage leopard print long jacket that I will wear when the weather gets really cold!!
Leopardprint is like marmite-you either love it or hate it. As you can see, I love it-yaay!

Leopard print suits you, and WendyB. Unfortunately it just makes me look like I'm wearing fancy dress! I wish I could wear something so funky and get away with it. What a great find, your thrifting skills are second to none!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi ladies who lunch-thanks for your lovely comment, its much appreciated. As I get older, I think I'm getting more adventurous in my choices, particularly different prints-I seem drawn to vibrant and different type prints!

Winnie said...

I love leopard print, don't own much unfortunately but I particularly love the 80s vibe! Complete with tacky gold earrings...maybe minus the backcombed hair but you get the picture!

I love leopard print. Last year I bought the Cruz collection leopard print faux fur coat in Mango - one of my best ever buys!
You're dress looks fab on you.

WendyB said...

Well, you know my feelings on the matter!

You know I'm loving it right there with you, gorgeous. I nearly picked up a faux fur leopard-print cocoon coat this weekend, but just couldn't. Not enough structure for my curvy bod.

Love this print on you!!! :)

So sorry to hear that you are also not feeling so very well. :( It must be going around. Take care of yourself. Tomato soup for lunch seemed to help me a bit.

Thanks for the outfit comment, :) !

Skye said...

It's a big YES to leopard from me, it's one of my all time favourites. I like the way the leopard here is making a very classic style dress much more interesting!

Savvy Mode SG said...

you look savvy!

Wendy-May said...

very nice! I wish I could pull of animal prints! x

She's Dressing Up said...

You can never go wrong with a good animal print dress!

Deb said...

Well you should love it, because you look great in it! I have a few tops that are leopard print, that I've never been brave enough to wear but after seeing you rock it, I'm going to give it a try. Deb

AsianCajuns said...

You look great in leopard print! I've always thought that us dark-haired ladies could carry it off ;)
Like the shoes too!

chuckles said...

It suits you. It's really chic.

ellie said...

I don't think my comment went through from yesterday..I thought it had.

I do like this print. It looks to be perfect for a transition from fall to winter.

Thank you for comments.

Fashion Guru said...

its funny how you got a post on leopard prints. I spent most of last night searching for the perfect leopard print top. I was inspired by kelly rowland's look. She had on a long sleep leopard top,skinny jeans and pink shoes. What a combination huh but you got to see this to appreciate it. Lovely post by the way

Jaimie @ Just Kiss 'N Makeup said...

Hi jaimie-thanks my dear!

melmo said...

bronwyn said...

The dress looks great on you and would be perfect with black tights too. You've found a real classic, leopard print never really goes out of style.

Wendy said...

Leopard print is fierce!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi melmo-thanks for your lovely comment!

Hi bronwyn-so kind of you, thanks a lot!!

Hi wendy-yaay, I agree!!

chuckles said...

thanks for the comment pretty

Sharon Rose said...

Hi chuckles-so welcome!!

Mimi said...

I'm not so much into the cut of the dress but the print is awesome.

Cate said...

Oooh I like that style of the dress! Cool, a fake fur leopard print long jacket... How long is it exactly?
I don't know, leopard print can look cheap, and it certainly doesn't look cheap on you or for example Kate Moss! It's just a matter of how you wear it. I see you still have nice weather over there.

*~The World is My Catwalk~* said...

How are you doing Sharon? I'm sorry to hear your not feeling so well....

Leopart print suits you SOOOOOOOO WELL!!! I would never ever be able to pull-off animal prints... I just know... though ladies like you inspire me a lot!!!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi mimi-thanks for your comment!

Hi Cate-my vintage coat is about thigh length, more a long jacket!I agree, a style is how you wear and interpret it!!

Hi the world is my catwalk-so kind of you, thanks my dear!!

melmo said...

thanks for your nice wishes! <3

ellie said...

Wow..thats a lot comments!

Thanks so much for the comments. I hope you are having a good week.

atelier said...

leopard print is soo sexy;) love your shoes

Eelie said...

Sharon! I am VERY glad to hear you like leapord and since you compare it to marmite then i assume you'r on the kiwis' side ;)

Yeah, its not a pattern for the shy thats for sure but when subdued your block colours (like the black you speak of) it totally works. Its a very nice find AND dress on you btw :)

Sharon Rose said...

Hi melmo-so welcome!

Hi ellie-I'm off with a flu bug, so no new posts!!

Hi atlier-thanks my dear!

Hi eelie-thanks for your lovely comment!
