There is not a lot happening in the world that is making me feel happy, so I am trying to think of something a bit escapist, because I think we all could use something to make us feel better, if only briefly. For me, that is a bit of leopard. I posted this image of Yvette Minieux on my Instagram today, which prompted a request for a similar bikini. Ganni is my go-to for leopard swim, because they make several designs (find more here and here) and they are relatively affordable (and some are on sale). But maybe you want a bit more, say a flat espadrille or jacket. I have half a mind to buy this Nili Lotan tunic (which is on sale if you subscribe to her emails/and if you don’t I am sure the sale will be public any day, so hold off), and sit around my apartment wearing it and a bunch of gold jewelry. Feeling glamorous, even for a fleeting period, doesn’t sound so bad right now.
Dries Van Noten jacket, $1275; Ganni top, $100 and bottom, $70; Saint Laurent espadrilles, $375; Nili Lotan tunic, $895 (but 40% off soon); Ganni maillot, $215.
I think the kaftan is gorgeous. I love leopard…on other people. I’ve bought if for me, and it’s always a mistake.
I just bought myself a pair of leopard Converse after admiring my youngest daughter’s leopard Seavees. Just a little bit is enough for me!
