There are two things I think about when I’m shopping: is the piece versatile and am I absolutely in love with it? I want to be able to style everything in my wardrobe so I can wear it for whatever comes my way. I also want to leave a store obsessing over my latest purchase so much so that it’s the next thing I have to wear out. While I wouldn’t say I’m the first to jump at a crazy pattern on a shopping adventure, when I saw this Fashionista in a simple LLD (little leopard dress) I was immediately sold.
This Fashionista pulled off a MINKPINK leopard dress with a black scarf and simple sandals. This is a perfect day to night look. With a scarf and blazer, you’re ready for class and make the transition to nighttime with heeled booties and a chunky, jeweled necklace. Even though this animal pattern is a bit on the daring side, its classic shape makes it easy to wear for numerous events. The warm and neutral hues complemented this Fashionista’s complexion perfectly. Gold accents and ombré ends are the perfect finishing touches to her autumn inspired ensemble.
This Fashionista completed the look with a touch of lipstick, which she thinks is the easiest way to add to any outfit. Not only is lipstick longer lasting but the options are endless! Her personal favorite is Revlon ColorBurst Lipstick. While Fashionista’s have been going crazy over bright red and pink lips lately, tone it down with a deeper, more color neutral stick for the daytime. Add a clear gloss over the top to get that extra hint of shimmer.
Whatever it is you look for when you’re on a shopping adventure, don’t neglect those playful pieces you're secretly in love with. Go out of your comfort zone and splurge on something you’re just dying to have. Whether it's a little leopard or a touch of lipstick, get ready to embrace your wild side!
