WIW: Leopard Pattern Mix

Inspired by Angie's post today but not having a leopard topper, I improvised. Too hectic?
The bag was made by my aunt from an old sweater. I like it for fall but wonder if the leaf looks too Colorado Would you remove it?

    Wow!! Amazing pattern mixing and right on style with the maximal look.

    Not too hectic for Lady Eclectic! :) 

    Fun colours, too, Joy. 

    Re the bag -- I would remove the leaf but only if it would not hurt my aunt's feelings. :)

    OMG.  Joy, you know I have nothing but admiration for you!  But, my eyes may never adjust to maximal ensembles.  I can see I am in for many shocks to my system ...........

    Maximal Adorableness. The socks work well too.

    I am amazed at how clever you are in pulling all that together!  I like it!  And I absolutely love the color and style of your hair!!

    You can really wear very good that mix, nice and bravo.

    As much as I enjoy pattern mixing, this was pushing it. I had intended to add a scarf and gold watch and bracelet but left them off. Thank you for
    Your comments.
    Bonnie, I love your tunics and jeans or leggings. You need a leopard tunic.
    Suz, the Eclectic closet does produce some crazy outfits. Thankyou for addressing the leaf. I think I'll remove it. Auntie need never know. I will leave the jean pocket as it makes a great place for my phone.
    Sterling, LOL. This looks a bit like an outfit ROG would create. I hope it didn't give you a headache.
    Angie, thank you. The socks were accidental but needed as the dry climate wants to cause cracking heels and it isn't even winter yet!
    Mtnsofthemoon, my hair has gotten so long as I look for a new stylist. Thank you for the compliment. This is my natural color with nothing added.
    Mirjana, thank you for the encouragement.

    Fun outfit Joy.  Thank you for the inspiration.  We are going out for dinner tomorrow.  I am going to wear my leopard print blouse with my eggplant jeans.  I just need to decide on a topper.

    Awesome maximal outfit!

  • Joy replied 3 years ago

    Style Fan, I wished that I had stripes in a topper to turn Angie's ensemble inside out. Maybe you could do that. Something with red or burgundy would be good.

    MEOW! What fun!

    Gorgeous, I love the pattern mix!

  • Firecracker replied 3 years ago

    This is a stunning maximal look, Joy. You've done it all just right. I love the mix of wine and leopard. I think I might prefer the bag without the leaf, but still I'd probably leave it as it is, since your aunt made it that way. The leaf is a cute detail.

    Maximal fabness. I think I would leave the leaf as is.

    JJ, Jane, Sharan and Shevia, I'm glad that the pattern mixing looks ok. I want to work with it some more. Sharan and Shevia, I ended up wearing the bag with the leaf next to my body and will probably leave it alone. This bag feels very seasonal anyway, but does a great job of holding the stuff that I need to carry without looking huge. Thank you for your comments and help.
