"A spark could be enough to set them ablaze"
- Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
Upon discovering the Hunger Games 'Capitol Couture by Trish Summerville ' collection, Tara and I went reaching for our wallets. Unfortunately, our student budget does not include $800 Mockingjay inspired dresses. Compromising, we created this outfit inspired by Katniss' gear in the latest movie from the trilogy; 'Catching Fire'. This gorgeous chunky knit from Rosewholesale was definitely a key piece in recreating her look. It can be worn multiple ways that all remind me of various looks from the movie. I wanted to introduce leather somewhere as Katniss does in many of her outfits. These leather panelled leggings were the perfect answer, also complementing the grey tones of the jumper.And to complete the look in true Katniss style, my Novo leather lace up boots. I also had a little fun creating Katniss' signature braid and slipping on my little Mockingjay pin. What can I say? Im a fan ;)
Leggings : Glassons

At the moment its sweltering hot in New Zealand, so this outfit isn't exactly the most appropriate. Is it bad to be craving rain and wind so I can wear this out? I'm already mentally saving this outfit for one of those cold uni mornings!
