I recently had an opportunity to visit Vancouver local designer Diane Kennedy's studio. I came home with this lovely a-line animal print tunic top.I like this tunic shape because, it is very comfortable,  its a-line shape still shows my shape and it is long enough to wear with leggings (because leggings are NOT pants). Then I realized that when I belted the tunic it created a bit of a mock peplum. So I gave it a test drive with a pencil skirt for work.

For a bit of extra fun I paired it with a some striped grey and blue tights. And clearly need to work on my photoshop skills so that the tone of my photos match. The one on the left gives a more true colour for the tunic.

The one thing I don't love is the necklace I wore. It is a bold black piece, but it doesn't fit with the higher cowl on the tunic. Will need to play with my necklace length.


Diane's collection is for sizes small through to 3X. This modal jersey tunic is a size XL. All of Diane's clothing is designed and manufactured in Vancouver.
