Leopard and Lace

Dress- Forever 21, Bag- Botkier Maddie Satchel c/o Stefani Bags, Shoes- c/o Lulus* (seen here), Ring- YSL (similar style), Bangle- vintage

I am the worst at trying things on. When I go shopping I hardly ever enter a fitting room. Thanks to my professional shopping skills I manage to get things right most of the time. Still when things don't fit and I have to go all the way back to the store I regret it. This is probably why I love online shopping. I don't even have the option to try it on. I adore this dress, but was surprised when it barely covered my backside. It should have been called a top. Luckily I have been into recreating this look (here) and made it work with tights and a pair of fabulous heels!   

Also I had to take these with a remote since my photographer was tied up. It really is awkward taking photos of yourself. Something I am not sure I will ever get use to.

I love this dress in all the posts you've done on it. I have a similar one that barely covers my backside too (sometimes I do wish I was shorter!) Adore the black tights and pop of fuschia, they really add to the dress.
Have a lovely day.

Your white F21 Lace dress is beautiful! I never saw that one in stores, but I did get two different black versions. I know what you mean about taking pictures of yourself. I still feel awkward when someone else does it for me! I guess that's why most of my posts are about food, haha!

Your photos turned out great, and only after you mentioned that you took them with a remote did I see it in your hand :) I went to Lulu's to scoop up those amazing heels and they are sold out...I LOVE them!

This dress is so beautiful! I love the 4th photo that shows a close-up of it.
And I'm still just as in awe of those shoes as I was the first time I saw them. I can't get over how perfect they are! I'm actually wearing a nail polish that is almost the same colour as them. :)

Kelly said...

This dress looks beautiful on you! You did a great job taking your pics. :)

i still kick myself for not buying that dress. you look lovely.

Christina said...

You do a great job of mixing trends without overdoing it. Love the lace and leopard print and the heels to top it off.

Love your style, lady, you are adorable as always!.. ~

November Grey said...

Erin Fetherston is great. I saw a show of hers years ago - before she was well known, and fell in love with her style and collections.

YOU look fab. I love the black tights white dress combo. The interesting part is adding in a colored heel. Love it! I was just telling one of my clients she needed to add a pop of color to her shoe collection. We settled on these Sam Edelman's, which are gorgeous and comfortable. (I'm thinking of getting the black)

Anyway, thanks for the inspiration, as always!

Fashion Butter said...

Tights are my secret weapon when something is too short. Especially now in my 30s. My husband will give the side eye to a questionable hemline and I am all like - but I am going to wear TIGHTS with it!

Helena from BrooklynBlonde said...

This is definitely one of my favorites!!! You look gorgeous and i love the contrast of that pretty lacy dress with the black opaque tights.

FASHION SNAG said...

I love the heels! You did a good job taking the photos yourself.

Alicia said...

I think you made the lace dress work perfectly with the tights! You could always try it over skinny jeans if you feel it is too short ... I think it looks great though. ;)

Rose said...

You took these photos of yourself? Not bad! Actually, they look great. :)

DiamondsandTulle said...

Love this look Taylor! And yeah - I tried on the dress too and it was awful short on me and I'm only 5'4". Therefore I got the top version. But the short dress length makes for a sexy and classy dress all in one!

P.S. on the self taken pictures that's me 100% of the time and the frustration never goes away!

Ana said...

love this outfit! You look great! I'm just learning that it's quite awkward to take photos of yourself. Definitely not liking it either.

Love this - I think the shoes are my favorite... or maybe the dress...

Dancing Branflake said...

I cannot ever try on Forever 21 dresses because they are always so short! I love what you've done and I love that bag! I've been looking for a leopard print bag and I love yours! Fabulous recreation of the photo.

Miranda said...

Beautiful! I saw that dress at F21, I'm kicking myself for not trying it on. It's lovely.

That dress is amazing. I'm really into white lace lately. I might have to give that dress a whirl. You don't look awkward at all! In face I barely noticed the remote until I read it. :)

You look gorgeous... the dress is beautiful. Well, maybe it is meant to be a dress for shorter girls but you are tall so it came out short. Nonetheless, you styled it perfectly. xoxo

I recently added your blog to my reading list, and I love it. This dress is adorable, and it looks perfect with the shoes.

I have that dress too, and it is painfully short. I went to the store to try a size up, and that wasn't happening. But you look great! And you have the legs to pull it off!

Kinsey Michaels said...

Despite the fact that you took these yourself, I think they came out so great! Love love those hot pink pumps! They look so fun with the dress!

Gosh you look great. Even if it's more of a tunic I think you really made it work, and I love the surprise and unexpectedness of bright heels and a leopard bag with it all.

ps. this bag is freaking incredible and I WANT IT!!!! u look so glamourous here. Effortlessly Glamourous! WHY CANT WE LIVE CLOSER!!! xo, Kim www.eatsleepwear.com

Kate said...

Argh, that's one of my biggest pet peeves - dresses that are too short to even cover your butt. One time I bought a dress and came home and put it on... 'is this too short?' I asked the fella. 'no, I mean it's short, but not too short' he replied. 'okay, good!' I say as I turn to to walk away. 'oh wait. no, yeah I can see your butt' - FAIL!

All that aside, this dress looks absolutely adorable on you and I looove the way you styled it! I actually featured these shoes on my blog this morning (in all 3 colors... desperately want the black but they are out of my size)

Holy, I'm rambling. My POINT was that you look lovely.

Apt. #34 said...

girl, you are killin' it in this dress! I've just come 'round the lace craze and that is one look i'd love to rock. Your heels remind me of the Dolce Vita pair I have - and can barely walk in! Are yours comfortable?

Paper Pastries said...

That dress was made for you! It's gorgeous and so are you :) love your blog
