The Jungle Book

Rebecca Taylor sweater. Betsey Johnson skirt. Vintage Miss Ashley belt (worn backward). Miu Miu shoes.
My penchant for prints begets a whimsical pastiche: eccentric English country rose meets bohemian genteel gypsy. Here Dries Van Noten's fall 2010 RTW fashion show inspired my marriage of leopard to flora (an original proposal resulting in ♥true love♥)... This docile animal top treads softly on cashmere paws in a powder-puff palette; I loved its muted spots so much several seasons ago that I also acquired the sweater-dress version. Leopards live in the dark jungle ergo my skirt's gothic garden completes the picture of wildlife passion; its spider web hem tickles my legs like Tarzan's Jane reincarnating her Victorian trousseau. This haphazard necklace could come from Jane's collection too; I'm mesmerized by its found object-quality - a treasure chest's muddled charms coalesced into the ultimate keepsake.
