Leopard Dress

Leopard seems to be the print that I just can not resist. My closet may be reaching the saturation point: skirt, top, coat, scarfs, tights, belt, hat, now dress -- yet some how I still manage to have three more leopard print items on my wishlist, shoes, bag, and fedora.
(Or more likely, shoes, bag and fedora... damn budget.)

Needless to say, when I saw this Calvin Klein dress at TJ Maxx on clearance for $30 I was helpless to the print's siren song. Not to mention how darn sexy the cut was.

I entered this dress in TJ Maxx's weekly contest for the best find. If you 'like' TJ Maxx on Facebook and feel so inclined, you could vote for me. (But only if you think mine is the best, I must admit the red studded heels I'm competing with are pretty fabulous.)

  18. Whoa, killer dress. You look totally jazzed to be wearing it. Definitely got my vote.

    In response to your comment on my blog: I agree with you about old photos. I look at the pictures from the 70s and prior, and nothing now holds a candle to them. Then I look at all the horrible-looking Polaroids from the 80s and I think well, we all held onto those, so maybe there's still hope for digital photos!

  19. Wow! These photos are stunning, I love the beautiful lighting. You suit leopard print so well {such a hard trend to pull off!}.

    I adore your blog, it's so lovely! Would you like to follow eachother?

  25. Oh leopard how I love thee! The dress looks great with the brown cardi. I have never worn brown with leopard, for some reason I always steer towards black or red. Great find! Heather
