I never would have thought I would pair leopard print with lightning bolts, but sometimes I get the urge to mix it up (Like earlier this week here). I love the details of this dress. The feminine cut and Peter Pan collar give it a softness that suit my style. I also love the navy blue color against my favorite tan vintage clutch. I believe in testing trends and seeing what works and what doesn't. If I end up looking like I belong on the Worst Dressed List, so be it, at least I was courageous.

The print is exactly the same as a blouse that Susie Bubble is wearing in her new post! What a coincidence! I love the blue color. You look beautiful as always! xxx

Mixing and matching is what it's all about! Taking risks pay off, and you might discover a new look you never would have thought could work so well together. Mixing it up works great for you!

You are seriously a doll! I love this combo and I think you would end up on the best dressed list for sure.

A.Co said...

Agreed, why NOT put yourself out there and then yes, you CAN say you were bold and courageous (and in fashion, sometimes that's not easy, so there).
