A Little {Leopard} Dress & A Little Red Clutch!

July 30, 2014

Hi dolls!

Happy Wednesday! A while back in May, this little leopard print dress caught my eye while I was out shopping at Ross. An entire dress in a pattern as bold as leopard print is tricky territory because it can definitely venture into the territory of a fashion "don't." However, the longer length of this dress with the lace detail around the waist and the fuller skirt made it more classy. After trying it on, I loved the way it fit and decided it was a must have! To add some color to the neutral palette of leopard print, I added a bright red clutch. I bought this ADORABLE clutch last week at T.J. Maxx (with a $50 gift card I won for being a "Maxxinista" daily pick contest winner on Instagram here). I especially love this clutch because it also has a gold chain link strap so it can be worn across the shoulder/body or just carried under the arm (as you can see below in my pictures). I love bright handbags because they really can add that special "pop" to an outfit. I also have always loved the way red looks against a backdrop of leopard print! To top it off, I of course had to put on some red lipstick :) Hope y'all enjoy!
