The Grey Clouded Leopard has Green Nails

"It was at this very spot, on our first afternoon in the park, we began our search for the snow leopard; the grey ghost of the Himalayas." - The hunt for the snow leopard, virgin.com


Sean O'Connell: They call the snow leopard the ghost cat. Never lets itself be seen.
Walter Mitty: Ghost cat.
Sean O'Connell: Beautiful things don't ask for attention.

(The Secret Life of Walter Mitty)

Today it is chilly here in Germany, below 0°C, but with a clear blue sky and sun. I've already been outside walking and playing with my son. The day I sported this look however was a particularly warm one for December in the North of Italy and I could actually get away with just wearing my long grey blazer over this leo print shift dress. 

How do you like it? I was right away captured by the color gradient in the leopard pattern. It is my sincere opinion that I will get a lot of wear out of this one and you haven't seen the last of it.

Oggi fa freddino qui in Germania, sotto 0°C, ma con il cielo azzurro e soleggiato. Sono già stata fuori con mio figlio a giocare e a fare una passeggiata. Il giorno in cui indossavo questo look però faceva caldo, per essere dicembre nel nord Italia e perciò potevo permettermi di portare soltanto il mio blazer grigio lungo, sopra questo vestito con fantasia animalier.

Vi piace? Io sono rimasta subito affascinata dalle sfumature di colore nella stampa leopardo. Credo veramente che lo indosserò spessissimo e che questa non sarà l'ultima volta che vedrete quest'abito.

Heute ist es ziemlich frisch hier in Deutschland, unter 0°C, aber mit strahlendblaume Himmel und Sonnenschein. Ich war auch schon mit meinem Sohn draussen, spazierengehen und spielen. An dem Tag an dem ich dieses Outfit anhatte war es allerdinges verhaeltnismaessig warm fuer Dezember in Norditalien und ich konnte es wagen nur meinen langen grauen Blazer ueber dem Leo Shiftkleid anzuziehen.

Wie findet Ihr es? Ich war gleich sehr von dem Farbverlauf in dem Leopardenuster angetan. Ich bin wirklich davon ueberzeugt, dass ich das sehr oft anziehen werde und Ihr es nicht zum letzten Mal gesehen habt.

  2. The yellow shoes with the leopard print all seems to just go together. At first, I';m like "yellow shoes?" but then I thought, "Wow, that's pretty cool!"

  23. Yup! Love the long blazer ... I've been looking for a light, coat-like blazer this year with little luck. I really love this one on you, and styled as you have this time, it's extra grand with that really sleek dress. You wear leopard better than almost anyone I know ... and this is an exceptionally cool way to wear it. Such a great cut, and the back!!! Wonderful!

  33. Dein Look sieht klasse aus! Ich liebe den Farbverlauf des Kleides. Das Muster steht dir perfekt und passt auch super zum zurückhaltenden Grauton.

    Wie immer in deinen Looks gibt es diese tollen Elemente wie die gelben Schuhe und die Fingernägel!!! Ich liebe diese tollen Details und wie du sie immer gekonnt einsetzt. Ja so langsam wird es auch kalt in Deutschland :)

    Liebe Grüße und einen tollen Rutsch,
