Snow Leopard and Red.

This Fall I am committed to taking some of my Summer Dresses and wearing them for the colder season. I have done that quite a bit in the last month and a half or so. Today I am showing you just one of them: my Snow Leopard Fit+Flare Dress. In the collage above it is side by side, how I wore it this Summer and how I am wearing it this Fall (just a couple of weeks ago, actually). And as you can see by the photos, my hair has grown quite a bit in the last 3 months.

For the first time this Fall (or ever) I paired this Snow Leopard Dress with a Red Cardigan and Bold Red Lipstick. Even my Earrings have Dangly Red Stones. I added some Off-Black/Charcoal Semi-Opaque Tights and some Black Patent Leather Ballet Flats. I thought it was fun to pair the B+W Spotted Dress with B+W Polka Dot Bangles. One of my favorite color trios is Red+Black+White so I loved how this came out. Black Pumps would have looked better but I wore this Outfit for some volunteering I did at a hospital for abandoned/homeless babies. I knew I was going to carry and hold a little baby or two so comfort was key. As a mom, I must say it was heartbreaking to see those healthy, beautiful, innocent babies abandoned/left by their moms. One of the little boys I carried, really took to me. I was able to quiet him down and make him smile. I hope the program that helps out these babies, finds them good homes and parents who will love them, soon. 
So, how do you like the Snow Leopard and Red together? Have you tried it out before?

  10. I've been enjoying your posts that show how to wear summer outfits in cooler months. I think it is so nice to be able to wear most of your wardrobe in a variety of seasons for getting more mileage out of your pieces. The dress looks perfectly winterized with the red cardigan, lovely. Have a wonderful Sunday Ada, XOXO, Elif

  11. I'm a big fan of layering sweaters over or under dresses to make them suitable for winter. This bright red is so cheerful and matches nicely with the leopard print - great choice! =)
