For 20 years, Mariuccia Mandelli featured a wild animal splashed
across each of her collections for Krizia.
These novelty sweaters became highly coveted and
collected. This is the sweater that she created in 1981.
In 2009, Stella McCartney paid homage to these iconic
sweaters by bringing the trend back to life. Since then, animal
novelty sweaters have been popping up on street style blogs and
designers have gone on to expand the look to other categories.

That's why I was so excited to find this sweater at Goodwill
for $4.94! I have no idea how old it is and I really don't care.
I have always been a sucker for animal prints so it
was fun to embrace this take on them, especially since I
remember the Krizia sweaters but could never afford them.
This one, however, was definitely in my price range!
I paired the sweater with these pants that I found at T. J. Maxx.
The fabric is treated to look like distressed leather but it's not,
nor is it pleather.
Have you noticed that something is missing?
I finally got my hair cut and colored for my nephew's wedding.
In the winter, I tend to forgo visits to the hairdresser because
I love to wear hats. But I thought that my "silver halo" (better
known as grey roots) would not be appropriate at
the wedding so I took the plunge.
Because it was so cold, I added this grey wool coat. I love
the contrasting color on the cuff, collar, and trim. I also love the
hood, which we did not take a picture of.
