How To Wear (A) Zebra, Any Day Of The Week

I’m not talking about a pricey zebra belt or bag. I don’t favor wearing exotic animals to decorate myself, but no judging. I mean a majestic beast.

I grabbed up this fab zebra sweater at the clothing exchange, as part of the Vancouver Blogger Meet-Up. The creative and gorgeous Suzanne Carillo had drawn him on a plain white sweater. How great is that? An original Suzanne C. of my own to wear and feel fabulous.



Love the reflection of the palm tree in our window. Does not suck to live in the sub-tropics.


The zebra sweater goes with everything in my closet, really. I wear him with jeans regularly, and over a black knit dress (sim). Today it’s a knit maxi skirt (similar), a basic black layering tee (sim) and my new Steve Madden boots (here). The zebra cannot be contained, he doesn’t give a you-know-what.

I didn’t notice until recently that the zebra gives awesome side-eye.


Stay fabulous, and let your creative flag fly,

    you so much, However I am going through issues with your RSS.
    I don’t know why I can’t join it. Is there anybody else having similar RSS issues?

    Anyone who knows the answer will you kindly respond? Thanks!!

  3. An SC original that you can wear – how cool is that? I love Mr Zebra and his sarky side-eye, he works beautifully with your flowy maxi. And btw, your hair is magnificent! xxx

  4. I really like how you’ve styled Mr. Zebra. Chic and sleek with super cool boots. I’m so happy you are wearing him!


  5. This is such a fun look, Patti!
    It is a real skill to still look like a classy lady in such a statement jumper.
    The maxi gives a feminine touch but the boots toughen everything up again.
    I would happily wear this outfit…..especially in the tropical location :oD
