DRESSES THAT HAVE YOU LOOKING FEMININE AND FLIRTY

Fashion Blogger 50 Is Not Old is wearing feminine and flirty in a leopard print dress and quilted leather heels

Before we start talking about the feminine and flirty dresses that I will show you today, let’s talk about yesterday’s post. I hope that you saw that post, but if not, you need to check it out. It was a lot of fun, and I loved reading all of your comments about Joe’s ability to pick out clothing. I read him a lot of the comments, and he beamed from ear to ear.

I saw that someone left a comment wanting to know, “what’s the point of doing the post,” and that is a fair question, especially since you follow me for “my” style instead of my husbands. 😂

The point was more about having fun, understanding that others can help with your wardrobe choices, and just getting out of your comfort zone. The biggest reason for doing these types of posts is to let “you” become the fashion expert. From your comments, I can tell so many of you have a good idea of your body, what looks good on you, and the colors that you should wear.

I will give you this one tidbit of advice. The other outfit that Joe chose for me was NOT a style that I liked, NOT a print that I liked, NOT a color that I would have chosen, and I would never have ordered it in a million years. It looked FABULOUS on me, and I liked it 100 times better than the one from yesterday. My point is…get outside your comfort zone and try something that you think will not look good on you. You might be just as surprised as I was.

This feminine and flirty leopard print dress is my style! I love the dress’s fit, the length of the dress, the print of the dress, and how the dress is flowy and flirty. I think this dress is beautiful, and it is a great neutral that you can wear for any occasion. Here is a post that I recently did showing dresses for all of your spring events.

The dress has a lot of swishiness (is that a word) to it, and I found myself swaying back and forth to feel it swaying. The dress runs true to size, and I am wearing my usual size 12 in the dress. However, the dress is limited in size since it has been such a popular choice.

Here is the back view for you. This gives you a good idea of how long the dress is and where it will hit on your legs. I am 5’6″ tall, and it hits me mid-calf.

I could have worn black shoes with this dress, but I chose to wear my new tan quilted leather heels from Vince Camuto. This quilted/woven/braided design is a hot trend right now, and the square toe is also trending. The quilted trend is something that I like, but I am on the fence about the square toe. My pair is limited in size, so I’ll link some others also. I am wearing my usual size 9. The widget wouldn’t let me change the color of the shoes, so click to see the available options.

This feminine and flirty dress is by Free Assembly, a new vendor at Walmart. I’ve styled some of their other clothing before, and so far, I’ve liked everything that I’ve gotten. The cornflower blue dress is too cute, and I love the feminine ruffle and the puff sleeves. I ordered a medium in the dress, and it fits me great.

This dress is slightly shorter than the leopard print, but it still hits me below the knee. You can see in this picture that the dress has elastic in the back, and that keeps it looking fitted in the front.

Here is a better look at the ruffle, and you can also see that the dress has a few buttons on the front. I chose to keep my jewelry dainty looking since the dress has a dainty floral print.

The Rylan small diamond-shaped hoops are beautiful, and they can be worn with almost anything. They aren’t statement earrings; they are a complement piece. My gold vermeil chain and cross are one of my favorite jewelry pieces, and I wear them almost daily.

This Coach handbag is several years old, but I pull it out every summer and carry it. I love this little handbag, and it shows. Look how dirty this handbag is, but I have no idea how to clean it. Any ideas???  Here is a link with several of these handbags available, but look them over to see which is the best one for you.

These shoes are also several years old. I should have titled this post “how I shop my closet.” Lol! I love wearing white and burlap during the summer! It is such a summery look, and I always wear these espadrille wedges. Here are some similar heels.

I forgot to list all of the jewelry in this look. I am wearing a faux-tortoise single strand necklace that is 48″ long. The gold chain is a Vincent Chain Necklace, and the AVI gold hoops are both from Kendra Scott.

    Love, love, love the leopard print dress!! Mine just arrived today (got a 10 before they sold out!) and I absolutely love the fit, and you’re right, the swishieness! Makes me feel pretty. BTW, I was lucky to find your blog about a month ago and I’ve already received a few compliments from 2 sweaters I got after seeing them on your site. Thank you so much for sharing!

    I loved both dresses today and how you styled them. And, I think it is fun to change things up. I can’t wait till I get some kind of a catalog in so I can ask Allen to pick out an outfit. I always ask his opinion on shoes and jewelry when we go out. He has great taste. Love your blog.

    Love, love, love both dresses! Alas, the leopard print is sold out in all but the smallest sizes. Fortunately, the Blue Cornflower is available! And just between you and me, it looks much better on you than on the model on their website!

    I really like both dresses, in fact, I personally really like to wear a dress as often as possible. With our stay at home more in the past, i am looking forward to wearing some of my dresses for many occasions. I thought the simple jewelry was perfect with the dresses you wore today.

    It’s been years since I’ve worn a dress but this is inspiring me to wear a dress to church. Since I go few places where I need to feel a little dressy. Love the animal print but don’t want to show that much arm. You as always looked adorable.

      I have been thinking lately about celebrating being feminine. The two dresses posted today are certainly an affirmation. They both look wonderful. The neutral shoe with the leopard print draws the attention to the printed dress. I would have also chose black shoes but now prefer the neutral.

    I thought your post about Joe choosing an outfit was great! My husband has great taste (he married me right?) When we shop together he’ll often suggest an outfit & it usually is something I passed right by. I bought leather cleaner to clean my bags. First I stuff the bag with newspaper and carefully use a cloth to clean all the dirty areas. A magic eraser works great on bags and sandal footbeds too!

    Love all of the dresses you have chosen today. Light and Spring like! I thought having your husband pick from your closet was such a cute idea! Though I would never do that! LOL. Off topic…and Just aThought, would you ever consider showing the inside of your home as part of your blog? A few women I follow have and I find it inspiring! If it’s not your thing I totally get it! Have a blessed day!

    I love wearing dresses when the weather warms up and both look great on you, but the leopard print is my favourite. Cute shoes too… good to know square toes are in style cuz I still have some from years ago that I can start wearing again. That’s a fun little Coach bag too. I have cleaned my purses using a soft, damp sponge with a small amount of gentle dishwashing soap and have had good results. Good luck!

  34. I like both of these dresses…. either would be a great “easy dress” to have on hand for those times when you want to be a little dressier. Thanks for finding them… and sharing different retailers!
    I like that you come up with unique ways to challenge your followers out of their typical comfort zones. I wonder what *my* husband might suggest if I did this with him! 🤣

Pinning both outfits and I will see if either dress is available in my size..Quick question, how do you keep the toe bed of your shoes looking good..I know this might seem like an odd query but I’ve just gotten a really cute pair of white wedge sandals and the toe bed is white cloth and I don’t want those icky toe stains😳…also I meant to comment yesterday but got too busy so going back to that post..

    This is definitely my style of dresses!!!! I love the leopard print one much better than the one I have hanging in my closet that I’ve never worn. Also liking that cornflower blue so may have to order that one to see how far off my shoulders that V neck falls. Really curious now about Joe’s second outfit he picked out 🙂

    I love everything about that leopard print dress; the style, the print and the length. Its exactly what I’ve been looking for. Bummer they don’t have it in my size. I recently bought a dress similar to this one and because it didn’t come in petite I sized down thinking the length might be okay. When it arrived my mid-calf dress pooled around my feet….lol.
    This dress is beautiful on you Tania!

      Lol! I understand how length can be an issue. There have been times when I almost didn’t order a dress because it looked so short on the model. Then, it comes in and fits me great. Must have been the 8 ft. long legs that those models have. Lol!

    I got a kick out of Joe picking out outfits for you. He did well! My hisband has a very good eye for flattering looks on women right down to accessories (his mother was always well dressed). I should ask him to pick something out for me and see what he does!
