Leopard, Is It In Your Closet?
This past Monday, I participated in my first Shoe and Tell linkup with Style Nudge. On Sunday night I took pictures of my shoes, and wrote my blog. When Monday morning arrived, I brought up the website and was thrilled when I saw the theme of her post. It was leopard! I think I might be telepathic. Or maybe tele-pathetic, I’m not sure which. LOL When I first envisioned what outfit I would wear with these cute flats, I immediately thought of a pair of black capri pants and a mustard, cropped sweater. But, I had forgotten that I had a funeral to attend, so I decided to dress it up a little bit more. I pulled out this black jumpsuit from Cato’s and never looked back. I threw on a carmel colored cardigan, a leopard scarf, and headed out to take pictures. The outfit looked okay. Not fabulous, but okay. I knew that most of the day I would be wearing my Foster Grant readers, so I figured I needed to take a picture with those as well. The purse was a gift and the bracelet is a vintage find from one of the many vintage fashion shows I attend. It is bakelite disc’s that are attached on a plastic chain. The bracelet contains all the colors in my outfit, and was practically perfect. The only problem with the bracelet was that it made a lot of noise when I moved my arm. Maybe not the best choice to wear to a funeral. Oops.It is really cute though!!!The leopard scarf was replaced by a long vintage bakelite necklace and a vintage leopard hat. I didn’t intend to wear the hat all day, I just wanted to throw it on for a couple of pictures. Have I mentioned that I don’t look good in hats. I have a big head. Not as in ego, but as in inches. That makes it hard to find hats that actually fit and look good. It didn’t help that I didn’t pull the hat down on my head, but I didn’t want hat hair for the rest of the day.
The black bag was replaced by this vintage crocodile handbag, which I love. It is huge and in really good shape. I bought it several years ago on the 127 yard sale. I saw the bag, but I didn’t buy it. I went back, but I still didn’t buy it. Finally, the third time I went back, I bought the bag AND a Hobe necklace. I guess third time’s a charm.
After a long day at work, it is nice to come home and put your feet up. It’s even better when they are covered in leopard. Thanks for stopping by, please feel free to comment.
