Where would I go dressed like this?

Enjoying a Sunday family brunch in a fancy restaurant or just an any-day-of-the-week-lunch with my fabulous girlfriends. By pairing the skirt with a tailored black blazer I can use this outfit even as a bold work wear. I would simply make sure that the rest of the outfit is kept simple, for instance by swapping the red patent leather shoes with a pair of classic black pumps or with black ankle boots (a great option for those ladies working in the creative industry) and the kimono recrafted pochette from My Moniko with a black tote.

Where would I not go dressed like this?

I would not visit a zoo or a safari park wearing animal print clothes. I happened to read an interesting article a while ago about the change of behavior of some animals in cases of humans wearing animal prints. Some will be frightened and escape. Not too bad of a thing being taken for a real leopard, but I would definitely avoid wearing zebra stripes and get too close to a lion or a tiger ☺

Who could wear this outfit?

If you aren’t afraid of boasting a full booty, a skin-tight shiny leopard print skirt is one of the best choices you can make. As for the tailored blazer, I am guessing you own one. If not, allow me to remind you that this is a stylish, must have piece you will wear time and again. Not sure which is your style? A wardrobe editing session with a stylist will not only give you knowledge about what to keep and what to toss from your current wardrobe, but also what are the pieces you should invest in, based on your figure, personality, lifestyle, age and budget.

The add-ons: Accessorizing a leopard print with a few bright spots of red and gold is a fabulous idea, but one needs to know when to stop. Match your red shoes with a red lipstick! A red nail polish is classy: keep it! A little red in the handbag is fab too, but let’s not take it too far by adding a belt, a scarf and a poodle with a red collar to the combo ☺ (of course exception is made for sausage dogs with red collars)

A little thought about the colours: We see the experts mixing prints and patterns and playing with texture all the time and we love the way they do it, don’t we? You know what? It is not that difficult after all. For this look I picked two different prints that share a couple of colours (leopard print skirt and kimono recrafted bag). This is one way of mixing prints and patterns. For more inspiration you can check Pinterest. You will find tons of suggestions.

How did I feel while wearing it? I felt bold and dynamic like a graceful big cat.

Any compliments? ‘Hey, I like your style!’ I promise you, ladies, somebody around me said the sacred words every woman loves hearing 😉

Little curiosity: The leopard print skirt was originally a skin-tight, shiny leopard print dress, which I was hardly wearing. I always believed in the versatility of skirts, but that’s me, because I love playing with outfits and a skirt gives me way more options than a dress. To prove you the eternality of the animal print I will put a date on it. I snapped the leopard print dress in a cute hidden boutique in Florence back in the early 2000s ☺ So let’s roar together this season ladies! Every self-respecting-brand is offering a variety of skirts, dresses, jackets and accessories in a leopard print this season. What is on your animal-print-wish-list this season?  I am going hunting for a pair of leopard heels! There is something bold out there for every body shape, lifestyle and budget! Go find yours and unlock that wild sexiness and femininity you own!

Having Pavleta help me on my styling is literally the BEST decision I ever made. Pavleta is such a fun and inspiring person to work with. She is thoughtful, warm, professional, talented, honesty and hard working. I got a very messy collection in my wardrobe and thought she would suggest me throw most of the items and buy something new. But she didn’t. Based on my current collection, Pavleta made all different type of styles. Chic, cool, cute or charming, I’ve tried everything I wanted. I never knew those old collections of mine could look so so so stylish. Most of all, Pavleta made me feel all the mix and match (that’s how she called them) were really tailor made for ME. Pavleta also taught me some skills about styling. Last Saturday I did my own mix and match based on what I learned form her. All my friends were like ‘WOW’ when they saw me.  👠Today is my second time working with Pavleta within a week. And I cannot wait seeing her again SOON in the next couple of days! Thank you Pavleta! 💃🏻💃🏻💃🏻
Pav! Thank you so so much for today. It opened my eyes to a new world and I loved it!  I'm so happy with every single piece, I feel like a new lady 👏🏼👏🏼I've just retried a few things on and I'm so so pleased, and with clothes I have in my wardrobe - love love love!Thank you for your time, your fun, happy and on to it nature it was amazing! 100% reccomending and posting on my insta etc.Much love ❤❤❤Krys

A stylist that really listens to what you want, and is prompt to give options that all seem to be what you are looking! Seem to know what you are after before you do! Professional eye and great 5* service! Highly recommended!

I met the amazing and fun Pavleta a few weeks ago. I think of her as the “Clothes Genie”. Her warm,bubbly, knowledgable, inspirational and sparkly nature made the 2 sessions I had with her transforming! I am quite an organised person, but she helped me take my wardrobe to a whole new level. She gave me new ideas about combinations, organisation and a clear list of what I was missing. This means I am now far more focused on what I am looking for and less of a “on the whim” shopper! It has also meant, that packing has become 10000 times easier!! She has brought my wardrobe to life and I would recommend her transforming sessions to everyone who wants to combine fun with organisation!! Not an easy combination to get right!! Thank you so much for all you have done!!😊

It was wonderful to have Pavleta come to my place for a wardrobe edit. She helped me make the most of the clothes I had and gave me the confidence to go out and make the right choices when buying pieces to fill the gaps. I highly recommend her services

I had a successful wardrobe edit session with Pavleta and I am very satisfied with how much more understanding of myself I have now. It is like everything fell into place and I have a clear vision and mission now.
Firstly, I was pleasantly surprised how well prepared Pavleta arrived (a suitcase of helping materials and even books) and in what a structured and clear way we proceeded.
After the theoretical part of defining and discussing my style/colours/body shape and respective golden rules of the wardrobe, we efficiently proceeded with evaluating each piece in my (I have to say quite minimalistic) wardrobe. I had best combinations of existing pieces explained and finally we made a list of missing pieces that would make it complete. We even managed to do some online shopping upon my wish.
Generally, the session was a pleasant experience that exceeded my expectations: Pavleta very quickly obtained the understanding of my taste/preferences and I am happy to be following the provided fashion direction in the future since I have a feeling it is very fitting to me. I also recieved answers to all my particular questions (which shoes to that cocktail dress, what to wear to the favourite swimming suit and even how to have a fitting capsule wadrobe). Thank you, Pavleta!

" Thanks Pavleta! I really enjoyed today! I feel so enthusiastic about my new outfits...just from the things that are already in my wardrobe! Looking forward to going shopping to fill in all the gaps! It was such a great help. I can really see how certain items are going to go a long way in making my wardrobe a lot more interesting and fun to wear. Can't wait! "

Some of my friends had their colour analysis done and they all had one thing in common, each one of them started to dress more stylishly afterwards and to look just more feminine and vibrant. I decided to treat my daughter and myself with a special gift, a full colour analysis for both with Pavleta from Stylish Sisters. Pavleta's passion about style, colour and helping people was so rewarding and enlightening that we both absolutely loved her and her service. Highly recommending Pavleta to everyone. And, a little suggestion from me, if you wonder what to buy to your grown up daughter as a Birthday Gift, buy her a Colour Consultation. I did and it was so much fun, something we could together that we enjoyed.

I think my husband heard me saying way too many times that I had nothing to wear and of course he could not understand the point as my closet was packed with clothes of any sort, shape and colour, but there was a problem, this one he got it very clearly…so what he does next, as a practical and loving husband, is buying for me a styling package including colour, style and make up consultations, wardrobe editing and personal shopping. THE BEST EXPERIENCE GIFT EVER! Not only my entire closet, make up routine and shopping habits were REVOLUTIONISED by Pavleta, but my entire world! I see myself PRETTIER, I get loads of COMPLIMENTS, and even half of the CONFIDENCE I feel would be enough to conquer the world. In the few hours I spent with Pavleta, I learnt how to build a functional, neat and pretty closet and to become a smarter shopper. All this wrapped in friendly, fun atmosphere. I simply cannot recommend Pavleta more!
