Polka dots and leopard spots.

Wednesday, 21 March 2012

 (Top - vintage, leopard skirt - eBay, belt - ASOS, shoes - Nicholas, clutch - HELLO PARRY)
Drop Dead Gorgeous Daily has been holding a fun event called the 'March Style Shakeup' where each day in March is allocated a specific style for readers to experiment with various sartorial genres that one would usually stray from (for example, wearing pants if you have an affinity for skirts ... and vice versa) and spot prizes are given to the most stylish photos submitted (I won one for submitting the first photo on Instagram yay!). This particular day was dedicated to spots so I decided to pair clashing prints together with my favourite vintage shirt that I inherited from my mummy and a skirt I acquired from eBay for eight dollars! I absolutely loved the combination even though it seemed to have a man-repelling effect on the streets ... haha. 
                             Join the March Style Shakeup fun here! I would love to see your photos!
