Holiday Sparkle








Peter Pan collar top: Yesstyle
Leopard print skirt: Chicnova (link here)
Clutch: Chicnova (link here)
Metallic shoes: wholesale7.net

For some reason I found this outfit to be ultra festive- something about the hair bow, metallic shoes and sparkly Peter Pan collar all add up to scream Christmas party to me! These photos were taken around that period though so excuse me for having the remnants of the Christmas past dripping off my entire attire! The flared leopard print skirt is from Chicnova and is perfect for twirling around in for anything involving fun and festivity, not just Christmas. The clutch is also from Chicnova and features a snakeskin print panel on the right side which gives it an interesting touch, and luckily isn't so overpowering that it would've created a strange leopard/snake print clash which I think would be over very quickly in the real jungle world.

Sorry for the delayed outfit post, I just came back from a sudden and quick holiday up on the Gold Coast! Currently blogging this post with a head-to-toe tan and sore arms from luggage-carrying and hotel gym equipment-using. My highlight would have to be the extreme jet boating, despite having almost fallen out from not holding onto the handrails properly! I'm going to try jet skiing next. As I'll be working full-time this year I reckon this is the year of exciting experiences and trips as I finally get to be able to afford them!

  11. The outfit is great! Love the "hardness" of the leopard print mixed with the "softness" of that peter pan collar shirt, makes a perfect combination. But what we love most is that AWESOME bracelet!!

  23. Hi dear, this is such a stunning and elegant mix, perfect for a night on the town, love the leopard skirt, you wear it with poise! The accessories are perfect with this outfit.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Wow! I love the "jungle" side of your outfit, your left hand bracelet, skirt... Somehow it reminds me of jungle illustrations in children's books! Especially, the skirt's print isn't like most leopard prints too, it has great shades so it's more as if it was painted. This outfit looks like a whole fictional universe to me, even though it's a weird thing to say.

  25. Love your photos and use of accessories here! Looking lovely as always <3

  49. You changed your blog fonts around! I like it! EUGH I love leopard print, if done tastefully and not resembling roadkill, your skirt is PERFECT. I've been trying to find a leopard print skirt/short and that pattern is so balanced and pretty ;_; And I love how you play off the metallics of your collar, shoes and wallet, it's such a cute outfit n_n Your talon bracelet is super awesome. Maybe its the embellishments that make it feel festive, and it looks safe for the occassion around family too hehe. I saw your tweets about the Gold Coast, hope you had a fabulous time! I had a bad experience with food there so not the most pleasant of memories ._. Argh tan, hope you're not sunburnt, the worst. WOW jet skiing!! I love the snow, but I have no co-ordination with snow-sports. I would enter your giveaway if I could but the sizes aren't friendly to me ;^; Can't wait to hear about your adventures working full time and outfits as such 0u0

  73. This is such a gorgeous outfit! I love those metallic heels & the encrusted collar on the top is beautiful & definitely very festive, but in a good way! You always manage to add a certain kind of elegance to looks like this that would usually be overly sweet & girly on most people :)
    Hope you had a wonderful time on your mini-break. I'm a huge adrenaline junkie, so extreme jet boating sounds awesome to me & I've always wanted to have a go at jet skiing too!
