Spirit Animals and Lucky Charms

What’s your spirit animal? Mine would have to be a tiger, as it has many characteristics I aspire to, especially its strength. You may recall my tiger obsession from this earlier post (Tiger, tiger,burning bright). Sometimes I have a timid approach in life, always proceeding with caution and making decisions carefully. But the tiger seems to have no such limitations. While I can’t be a big cat for a day, it was lovely to put on this striking jacket by Glamorous, which has three embroidered tigers on it (front and back!), and is lovingly detailed. I’ve never seen embroidery this elaborate before. I could hardly believe my luck getting it on ASOS, as it was heavily reduced and normally retails for triple the price (£93). It was the last one they had and I saw it purely by chance, and ordered it on the spot. Amazingly, it was the right fit. I’ve included a link to a similar tiger-embroidered jacket at the end of this post, for those who would like to recreate this look.

I’ve always believed in the transformative power of clothes, and their ability to create a persona. Sometimes it even seems possible they have unknown powers, like they do in many myths and legends. Donning this jacket helped me to feel bolder, and channel the strength and confidence I wish I had more of. Naturally, I had to accessorise the look with my faithful tiger stud earrings to add a little sparkle, as that was only fitting. I also have shorter hair now, perhaps you've noticed? For the finishing touch, I applied a slick of eyeliner in jet black to add some drama. I headed to one of my favourite haunts and captured these images before sundown. 

I hope you love this look and the resulting pictures. Please comment below and let me know!

And please remember to support the work of WWF, which is doing great things to protect endangered big cats. Learn more about how you can be a tiger protector at this link.

Thanks so much for dropping by and see you soon. Lots of love Saba xx
