Animal Print

2014 467-topWork with a little animal print this spring…

Mark selected a single piece to build three looks- a great leopard-print sleeveless blouse by Sara Campbell.

The ruffle adds softness and a little extra flair.

Browsing the shop produced some fantastic pieces to pair with the blouse for very distinct looks.

All these pieces are available at Finley House Couture and one of our sister stores, The Boutique Collection, just a few doors down. Come by and see us to create yours!!

Look One:

2014 467The first look is understated and sleek but still soft. The bow belt, however, is a bit unexpected, and brings a little more sweetness and fun to the ensemble! Here, the Sara Campbell blouse is combined with a Lilly Pulitzer belt and a Sara Campbell pencil skirt. The print plays well with the knit pattern on the skirt, and the gold tones in the belt and skirt bring out the warmth in the print. The ensemble also pairs naturally with the Bourbon and Bowties gold wire bracelets. Mark selected several bracelets to stack for visual impact, but decided against more accessories here to keep the look simple and soft at the neckline.

Look Two:

2014 470In this second look, a gorgeous gold jacket by Elizabeth McKay brings the ensemble closer to neutral, and makes it a bit more serious. The Sara Campbell leopard print blouse and pencil skirt remain, but the print is tamed a little by the jacket addition. To pump the pattern and texture back up, bring in the accessories! The tortiseshell-inspired pieces by Lorren Bell (chain necklace) and Susan Shaw (bracelet and earrings) look great with the leopard print. (Expect to see lots of tortiseshell patterns this spring- add to your collection accordingly!) A stunning pearl rope necklace by Tonobi pulls lighter tones back up toward the face and adds sophistication.

Look Three:

For the third ensemble, Mark pulled a couple of items from Finley House Couture’s sister store, the Boutique Collection, to create a decidedly bolder look. The Sara Campbell leopard print blouse remains, with the ruffled neckline peeking out from a vest with attitude. The vest, a fur by La Fiorentina, is called “Blue Tiger.” You’ve just got to see and feel this one in person! With gorgeous shades of blue, brown, and gray, played up with splashes of orange, this is a statement piece for sure, yet lends itself to many different palettes. The orange in the vest takes the leopard print from neutral to colorful, and the orange Kayden K jeggings (available at the Boutique Collection) are the perfect addition to keep the fun cranked up in this look. While jewelry isn’t necessarily needed for this look, Mark did add the fun cork clutch by Lilly Pulitzer. We love everything about this handbag- the shape, size, gold accents, unconventional material, and the tassel! And, the final part of the look are the boots: rich, beautifully stitched cowboy boots from Gypsy Girl by Conkys (available at Boutique Collection).
