I rediscovered this dress while packing for the Dominican Republic. I had it with my vacation clothes because there was a time in the not-too-distant past when I felt uncomfortable wearing this much leopard in day-to-day life. Obviously that time is past.
I should have been wearing this halter-style maxi dress all summer, but since I didn't find it until autumn I have to improvise. Adding a cardigan makes it appropriate for the transitional weather we're having now. Adding a leopard cardigan makes up for all those years I only wore it on vacation.
Cardigan, Rafaella, Younkers; dress, B. Smart, Younkers; wedge sandals, Montego Bay Club, Payless Shoes; earrings, Claires; necklace, Kay Jewelers.
* Confession: I only wore these shoes for a few minutes. When I ran errands I wore my American Eagle leopard print flats.
