August 2, 2011: Leopard, Denim, Lace, Gold

Top: Thrifted ($5)
Dress: Rodarte for Target (old)
Belt: Vintage ($2)
Necklace: Swapped

What I wore to Saturday's Swap Uncapped, possibly my most favorite outfit lately. Although, every outfit seems to be my favorite these days. I usually can't stay in heels very long, but whether it was sheer force of will or whether they were actually comfortable, I managed to keep these beauties on for the whole day. This weekend's swap was one of the best I've been involved in, we had so much fun! This outfit was comfortable and simple enough to take me from day to night. This was actually the first time I've worn this Rodarte for Target dress, despite having it in my closet for a couple of years. I added the blue denim top to make it a little more summery, and some gold jewelry to add a little shine. And what is better than leopard print as a final touch?

I really love how you've styled your top, it's so innovative! I've only ever thought to wear cropped shirts over dresses, but I could knot longer tops like you did to make them work over dresses too. Swaps sound like a great way to revamp your closet, I'll keep an eye out for one in area.

Oh the shoes! I love them! I just bought a pair of leopard pumps, but they are not nearly as cool as these boots.

I agree. The necklace over the shirt/under the collar is genius! I might try this soon. :)

I have a really similar gold necklace that I thrifted! I love how dramatic it is. Those boots are so damn cute. I might try willing myself to stay in em all day, but they look so intense I'm not sure it'd work!

I'll be honest. I was mildly obsessed with your outfit (and your perfectly toned arms) at the Swap. And those shoes... Just wow!

Nice combination... I'm not a fan of knotted shirts though. It just reminds me of high school too much.
