Celebration time! I’ve finally found my perfect leopard print dress to add to my closet! It feels like I’ve been searching all my life for the right piece. Either the colors were off, the leopard print too grainy, the leopard spots too small, or too big, there wasn’t enough variation to the spots, it just didn’t fit right, or it costs too much; now how many of you can agree with me on that last one! Lucky me, while picking up groceries at Target I spotted this cute little number in the ladies section. Now I don’t normally shop in the ladies section, first because I don’t necessarily fit into all the garments in the section (this is the XS!), and secondly because I don’t normally see too many pieces I’m dying to have. But this day was different, when I saw it I was hopeful and excited to try it on! Leopard print is my favorite of all the animal prints and I find it the most flattering to wear! Alas, I’m a picky one when it comes to finding my perfect piece of leopard print garments. My leopard print flats by Bamboo have served me well and I’m finding it hard to find a suitable replacement pair, that’s next on my “to-buy” list.
This dress is thin, and feels as if it’s a sheer fabric, yet it has full coverage (I wore a black bra and it didn’t ever show through). I love how easily it moves, even with the tailoring of the slightly puffed shoulders. Usually I’d turn away from a top that has the puffy shoulder look to it because in my experience it will pull on the chest a bit – luckily this dress did no such thing. It came at a perfect time because this week Jeff and I were invited to a Wine Society event at City Club in Downtown LA. I wore this very outfit on Thursday night and enjoyed spending time with my love and our friends 54 floors up, overlooking the glorious skyline of Downtown LA, sipping delightful tastes of local and imported wines. My favorite among them being Isosceles by Justin Winery – if you’re a red wine drinker you’ll have to try it! The dress brought on many a compliments and I was happy to report to them that they too can be jungle cat fashionable by the likes of Target!
