Look: Zebra print with a touch of ethnic.

Animal print adds a little bit of excitement to any wardrobe. Mine especially needs more of it since I almost always admire it on others when I see it. Numerous times, I've purposely gone window shopping for articles of animal print that I can wholeheartedly commit to but the only items I can boast of presently are a pair of leopard print pumps, leopard print silk top, zebra print trapeze top and this zebra print jumpsuit that just "jumped" at me in Zara last summer (seem to be partial to leopards and zebras)!  I got it on sale for about 70% less than the original price. A totally steal! I have a couple of shopping rules but the one that applied during the decision period of this particular purchase was simply this: "if you really like it but it happens to be out of your budget, make it". When it first showed up in the store, it was definitely out of my reach, so I had resolved to making this garment as soon as I could find the time to go scouting for the right fabric. Imagine my pleasure when the price was cut to next to nothing by the end of the season. I've worn it once with a bright pink cardigan, gold jewelry and a thin black belt. Links to other bloggers who rocked it are here and here. I gave it a touch of ethnic with some coloured bead jewelry.

It may be possible to still find this jumpsuit on Ebay or on other resale websites. I haven't found it in the same print anywhere, but you can get it in a ditsy floral print here.

    1. No Emmanuel :-) It signifies my attitude towards life regardless of where I am. Prepare for the weather, adjust to the changing times and live your life the best way you know how...
