BDIB: Animal Instincts

Time for another Bloggers do it Better challenge!  I love these challenges so much.  I'm not sure I'd ever have paired these items together any other day.  I love this leopard print dress.  I've had it for years and I wear it pretty frequently.  The biggest problem with it is that it's crazy boobalicious.  Really.  I look like Dolly Parton in this dress.  Okay, so maybe not quite, but you get the picture.  Despite this fact, I still wear it all the freaking time.  

(I'm definitely laughing at myself in these photos)

I went through a giant leopard print phase about 4 years ago.  I had bucket loads of leopard print.  I've since discarded most of it, but this dress has stuck around.  It's actually one of the only 3 animal print pieces I own.  (The other two are leopard, also.)  The biggest challenge for me wearing this dress today is that I still had to go to jury duty.  I'm not sure the Dolly Parton/Pamela Anderson look is appropriate for a court room.  So I got creative with a cami underneath, and a cardigan on top.  I really love this look a lot.  I'm definitely going to be pulling this dress out more often with cute little cardigans for fall.

  1. Love the dress! The print is fabulous. I went through a phase and got rid of most of my leopard print, but now it is making its way back in my closet. Great look.

  2. I wish I could day that I had a huge leopard phase, but I've only recently been into animal prints the past few seasons... and love it! Your skirt is lovely here, especially with the colour blocking effect (tights/cardigan). -xo

  3. and you pulled it off well dear! LOVE how you combined your color blocking with the print and the belt: nice touch! Work it girl!

  4. The cardigan and skinny belt are a nice touch! and the tights - i really need to challenge myself with more colorful tights! It looks great on you!

  5. too cute outfit. I love your style.

    Love from Oregon USA,

  6. Great outfit! I especially like the purple cardigan. Of course the leopard print is excellent too. I like the way you styled the whole look. Perfect for court (and not in a My Cousin Vinny sort of way).

  7. That necklace is so ridiculous. You look great!

  8. So ladylike and fierce very nice. Oh and that haircut is gorgeous!! LOVE IT

  9. I love this! And with blue tights? Daring!

  10. Thanks, guys! I really appreciate all the kind words.

    Meagan - Don't you just love the eagle necklace? I about drooled when I saw it at Savers.

    Jean - Now I'll have to put together a My Cousin Vinny outfit. Where are my leather pants?

  11. I so love the purple with the print!! Everyone always wants to pair red, but I think that purple looks even better!! You look great!!
