Happy Tuesday! How are your Christmas preparations going? I’ve bought quite a few presents already but still have a couple more to get. The problem for me is, when I’m looking for presents for other people I see lots of things that I want for myself! With all the sales on at the moment it’s rather tempting too! I had to cave in when I saw this Baum und Pferdgarten leopard print jersey dress heavily reduced at The Outnet. On top of the sale reduction I had a code for an extra 20 per cent off, so it cost less than £30 including shipping.
The fabric is a mid weight jersey with a good amount of stretch. It fits quite snug on the arms but a little loose on the waist and hips, so I added a belt to give my waist more definition. (For size reference I’m wearing a medium). The dress can be worn buttoned up at the neck or worn open and folded over to create a collar (see photos further down). I can’t make my mind up which way I prefer.
To keep the look simple and classic I chose black accessories. I don’t use this Jennifer Hamley vegan leather bag enough (probably because going out has been off the cards this year!) but it works well with this leopard print jersey dress. I found the boots in a charity shop the day before the most recent lockdown began; with the prospect of no charity shop browsing for a month I squeezed in one last hit. It was a very fruitful outing though because I bought another pair of boots, a dress and a jacket! I don’t think these boots had been worn because there were no marks on the soles. I paid just under £5 for them, which I think was a bargain!
My first instinct was to wear my black cat eye sunglasses, but I chose these oversized cream and tortoiseshell shades instead. The colours match the leopard print dress quite well. My Yaa Yaa London druzy ring and pearl embellished cuff finish off the look.
