FashionWild Week: Accessories Report

Because cat is where it’s at!

We couldn’t host a week full of leopard-y luxuries without including a few feline-inspired trinkets! Of course the leopard print dress is a must-have for every closet, but sometimes just a touch of animal print is your ticket to ride. Spruce up your shift dresses with an animal print belt and add a matching clutch, or let some adorable catty flats peek out from your favorite wide-leg pants. The results are purrrr-fect!

ArtDifferent Strokes with Artist Jacqui Oakley

This gorgeous rendering of Dior Couture opened the door for me unto the prolific workings of Canadian illustrator Jacqui Oakley. Published in a long list of books and magazines, Jacqui’s work pairs inky brushstrokes with explosive color combos, and sensual contours.
 
Her website is also one of the most fun I’ve seen, with dozens of colorful thumbnails that reveal full shots of the work and plenty of in-process photos for some serious behind-the-scenes gratification.
