Time to Let the Leopard out of the Wardrobe!

Hi Everyone,

You know the feeling when you’ve had something in your cupboard for years and years but couldn’t get rid of it because one day you will “need” it again? Well this is how I felt about my faux Leopard print jacket. Having just bought a Leopard print pleated skirt it was obvious it was now time to let the Leopard out of the wardrobe!

Confirming gut feeling Who What Wear have also declared the Leopard print is replacing Gingham this Fall!

Time to Let the Leopard out of the Wardrobe!

Photos taken last Friday a super windy day in Zurich – adding to the dramatic of the Leopard look. My favourite way to style this is with all black and then brown accessories.

Bag (Baldinini) and shoes (Veronique Mergeay) from Boutique G31 in Zurich. Love the way they match despite being different brands.

The coat is…holding breath here… 13 years old from Kookai…

That coat flying away again!

Hi! I’m Yvonne, a 40 something (wink) Kiwi, living in Zurich. I love fashion, travel, shopping and food – believing chocolate will cure almost anything!

  1. Your coat is gorgeous Yvonne 🖤💛

    I’ve been pinning for a leopard coat for a long time and found a cute little jacket at HM and can’t wait to wear it .

    Leopard is absolutely a fabulous statement piece and neutral all at the same time !

    It never goes out of style , does it !?

  2. Love leopard print! Got a vintage leopard coat sitting in my closet just waiting for the temps to dip enough to wear it. Never thought I’d hope for cold weather, but I’ll put up with it to wear my fav coat!

    You whole outfit looks so very put together and chic. The boots and bag are fabulous.


  3. Beautiful coat. So glad you hung on to it. Although I would have worn it every year. I have a summer version of it and i love it to death. Beautiful bag too. Again. You and your handbags… sooo good.

    1. Thanks Greetje – you are right I should have worn that coat so much more…am getting such an amazing response to it 😉 As for the handbag, what can I say…weakness is where weakness is,,,

      Have a great week!
      xxx Yvonne
