Sequins and leopard

18 January, 2012

About a week ago, it was my brother’s nameday, and we were invited at his house for drinks and finger food near the fireplace. Just us and his in-laws. So I had to pick something cozy to wear, ‘cause the weather was horribly cold. I changed my mind many times about my outfit but finally decided to go like this:

Zara sweater, Venus Victoria body (underneath it), Dolce & Gabbana pants, Zara clutch/wallet, Tsakiris Mallas pumps, H&M necklace, Donna Karan sunglasses.

As you can see I was wearing black tights under the pants, as I told you it was extremely cold outside. That’s something I don’t normally do, especially with nude pumps and I wasn’t so thrilled with the result, but I wanted to try it.

Something I also noticed is that I don’t really like how leopard looks on me, especially in such large pieces as this sweater. I love seeing it on everyone else, but I’m not used to seeing such prints on myself.

On this cold night, I couldn’t go out without my long, roomy coat that I have for many years and I recently started wearing again really often. It’s actually the first coat I ever bought and coincidentally the first coat I ever tried on. It fitted like a glove from the first time, and no matter how many I wore after this one, no other fitted me like this. It was made for that specific store in my city, so it’s not from a known brand.

It was also the first time that I carried my sequined clutch.

Pretty roomy too I must add. It also fitted some extra things I wanted to take with me.

Forgot to say that I added a pop of color with my scarf, which was my mother’s. A vintage piece which looks like new…

And for those of you who haven’t seen my shoes before, here’s a close up pic!

  3. On the contrary, I think you look awesome in leopard print. I agree that it can be a bit overwhelming sometimes but you styled it perfectly! 🙂

    The combo of sequin with leopard is very innovative. You have a very unique style. I like it very much. Please do pay me a visit so that we might follow one another. 🙂


  4. First of all, I love the redesign!! 🙂 I remember those shoes! They are really pretty. I love your sequin clutch too. In winter I always have to wear many layers, and quite often wear black tights underneath as well, I agree it doesn’t look as good with pumps so I try to hide it in boots! x

    • Thank you Stephanie! The redesign was something I had in my mind for a very long time. 🙂
      Yes, I know… I hate winter. Having to layer all my clothes to feel warm annoys me. My favourite season is Spring, when it’s warm enough not to wear a jacket but still cool enough not to need an A/C.
      I usually wear regular socks underneath my boots to feel warm, and skin coloured tights with my pumps. But lately it’s so cold here that I have to even wear warm tights underneath my pants. Wearing black ones with these shoes was just an experiment, that I didn’t like so I’m going back to my usual stuff.

  8. Argh, I wrote a comment yesterday and lost it! Grrr, my fault, I normally copy it before sending and yesterday I didn’t do it! Coming to see if you had answered, I didn’t find my comment, and so I’ll write it again! (Thank God I came here again! Or else I wouldn’t have seen it wasn’t posted!)
    Do you remember – I think – my first comment here? If not my first, one of the first. It was a smilar pose, wearing an amazing black dress on Easter. And I looked at you and thought “wow, fabulous, she looks like a model”! In fact, I did think you were a model! (I still think so!)
    This time it’s the same – you simply look like a model! Such a great body and style, congratulations!
    You said you didn’t like leopard in a big piece, for you, but I have to disagree, I love it! And the pants and the shoes – amazing! Plus the clutch, what for a great style to celebrate your brother’s nameday!
    I also loved your hair! So you see, I liked the whole outfit and you could be in Harper’s Bazaar or Tatler – Elle and Vogue too!
    So now I’ll copy my comment, I don’t want to lose it again!
    Looking forward to the next amazing outfit! (I’ll be in winter in 29 days…. flying in 28, naaaaaiiiii !!!)
    Filakia polla!!!!!!

    • Awww why did your comment get lost? Was there a problem with my blog? ‘Cause I didn’t see a pending one from you. I would’ve remembered. I’ve lost many of my comments too on other blogs, and it’s annoying sometimes, especially if you haven’t saved them before. Thank you for coming back. Another thing I wanted to ask: Aren’t my replies to your comments coming as an email to you? ‘Cause I have a plug-in that does it automatically.
      Oh my dear Denise you’re are flattering me! :$ You know how easily I blush. hehe. Thank you so much for your amazing comment. I’m glad you liked this outfit too. Although, the reason why I chose these photos is because they were the best of those I took. On the other taken from the front you could see that I gained weight, and I believe you can see it on my previous outfit too. It’s true! I gained 2 kilos during the holidays. And I’m on a diet to lose them. So far I only lost one of the 2, but I have a long road ahead of me. I want to lose at least 5 to feel comfortable in my clothes again. So I’m far from a model. I’m so shy I can’t even pose in front of a tripod, cause I know I will post the pics here. Don’t even get me started about posing in front of others. I always feel awkward when they take my pic.
      My hair in these pics is natural. They are naturally wavy at the back and straighter at the front. I don’t usually do many things with them. I’m so lazy, and not at all good at making hairstyles.
      Unfortunately I don’t have other outfit pics ready for my next posts but I’ll try to take some before T. leaves. I planned a small trip for this weekend. 🙂
      Can’t believe you want so much to return to winter. I’ll always pick spring/summer to fall/winter. But I understand that you want to see your friends in London, and that you’ve missed them. Good thing is that you’d be closer to me once again heheh. yayyy! 🙂
      Filakia polla sweety! I’ll come by your blog today! Sorry I didn’t have time these days.

    • S’euxaristw poli! Nai, kanei ontws paaara poli krio! Kai eidika Thessaloniki me tosi igrasia einai tsouxtero…Kati mou leei oti tha meinei meres…

  9. I love the nude color of your shoes. Your leopard outfit reminds me of my mom’s blouse. The Zara clutch/wallet matched the outfit well. And your black pants complements your curves. Good luck to the giveaway’s winner.

  10. wow you really can walk on those heels…?…myself, i wear tights under trousers in winter as well, but noone will ever see them, because they’re hidden in my boots !

    • Yes…it isn’t difficult. The platform helps a lot…But they’re definitely not shoes that you can wear for long distances…I usually don’t wear tights under my trousers. Only in really rare occasions.

  11. tights under trousers are not very comfy, i know, they itch and scratch during the day…that’s another reason for me to prefer ankle-boots: trousers paired with boots cover my legs completely, i don’t need any sheer nylon hose, even under dress trousers ! comfy cotton socks are my daily choice
