on the heels of last week’s animal print slip dress styling session, i was inspired to find a leopard slip dress of my own. full disclosure, i ended up returning the snakeskin version back to target for reasons i previously mentioned (namely the fact that it didn’t have a slit). i had ordered this one from mango and crossed my fingers it would be a viable replacement. when it arrived this week i was immediately smitten with its shape and fit. the leopard print is definitely more subtle than other styles i’ve been eyeing, but i think almost like it better since it’s not so overt. when the print isn’t so overwhelming, i find it to be easier to style and restyle multiple ways. in fact, hopefully you caught my mini styling session on my instagram stories on thursday because i created three different looks with this dress and i could probably come up with at least three more! i actually just ordered a pair of high top converse sneakers and i’m excited to see how they’ll look with the leopard dress as well.
we’re experiencing a MAJOR heat/humidity wave in these parts so when i was getting dressed for an outdoor birthday party this weekend, i knew i needed to wear something that would keep me cool. this slip dress (and that generous slit) were the perfect solutions.
i’ve had a few questions about whether or not this dress is worth its $50 price tag and after sporting it for an entire afternoon, i can confidently say “YES.” i believe it will be one of those frocks i reach for again and again as we endure the summer heat and eventually transition into next season. it’s also machine washable which is always a plus, especially for all the mommas out there 😉
