Well, I bet that you never expected to see me in a leopard print dress. I am normally a “plain Jane” when it comes to building my wardrobe. I do indulge in the occasional print tops to liven up my basics. Full-length leopard is definitely a new adventure. So I was surprised and ultimately delighted when a friend offered me a lesson on how to be bold and try a new style. She had bought this dress for herself and sent me a photo on WhatsApp of her wearing it. The dress really suited her. She is very different in colouring and height to me. She is petite with dark auburn hair. I texted back that she looked lovely in it.
We subsequently met for coffee in the Park and she handed me a bag containing a present for my birthday.
When I opened the parcel on my birthday at first I was not sure about the print; however when I tried it on I found that the shape really suited my figure and surprise surprise I really loved the print. So you never know it sometimes pays to be bold and try a new style. The only problem is that we will have to WhatsApp each other before we meet up with “are you wearing the dress!”
The dress had its own self-tie belt but that did not work for me as I need more waist definition so I swapped it out for a narrow black suede one. It is the kind of dress that you can wear casually with a pair of white trainers or glammed up with my silver embellished sandals from Pavers (gifted) and a silver belt.
The dress is made of viscose and is very comfortable. I really enjoyed posing for the photos as the dress is very swishy.
