Let me get this straight: I prefer zebra to leopard. I know the animal print of the moment is leopard, but I still like to wear my good old zebra print. The zebra is such a cool animal. It's like a punk horse! I like to think of myself as being not so much as a wannabe... but very very avant-gardist. I know it's going to come back in fashion, and you'll thank me for being that visionary. haha!

I bought this little cardigan at H&M on sale, and I really liked the color and the lace. The more it looks like a grandma top, the more I like it. Guess I'm already building up my elderly closet! I wore a black t-shirt underneath it to make the lace stand out more. And I thought the lace/zebra combination was interesting. I'm more and more into mixing different textures. Are you?

On a side note, did you answer on poll yet? We would love to know what you like best on rose&violette. Thank you so much!


  1. You are fabulous. I love this outfit so much! The cardigan is great. Love how you mixed the grandma top with the punk zebra!

    Kristine. Or Polly.

  2. Cute outfit! I like how you're still going with zebra even though leopard is all over the place. Punk horse... I'll have to remember that!

    I also really enjoy your granny sweater. The lace on the back is a surprising touch.

  3. Thank you ladies! I'm glad to hear that you both like my grandma top. Seems like I'm not the only one falling for that! ;)

    To Kristine: You're so nice, thank you. :)

    To Meredith: Thank you for your comment! Yes, I'm trying to bring zebra back in fashion! (...or convincing myself that zebra is still cool :P)

  4. Bravo, il faut s'affirmer dans la mode, c'est bien le zébré non? Le look grand-mère te va à merveille, et surtout la dentelle...

  5. Merci Lulu pour ton commentaire! Le zébré est bien, mais il a perdu des plumes (?!) à côté du motif léopard et ce n'est pas ce qui est le plus tendance actuellement... mais moi je l'aime encore!
