Magenta Leopards

  Dress: Target ($10!) / Tights: Kohl's / Cardi: Maurices / Shoes: Ross / Belt: Nordstrom Rack / Jewelry: Gabes (Monet) / Scarf: DownEast (LOFT)

Confession:  I went through a phase where I thought I was obsessed with leopard print. Because MTV was still cool {barely}, and so was decking yourself out with matching velvety leopard pajamas, robe, and slippers while roaming the dormitory at night. My little Ford Tempo was also bedazzled with cherries, at the time, mind you. It was the early 2000s. I'm calling it 90s after-shock.

It lasted a bit, then I realized I was walking around in head to toe leopard and driving a car that screamed 70s wild-child wannabe.  A few days later I relinquished yet another attempt to define my personal style, and all things leopard and cherry were cleansed from my life.

These days I've upgraded to a Dodge Caliber, decorated with dog covers, and flannel pjs. Sometimes I sleep in tonal striped satin. Because I'm classy now. I also keep my cherries for food and my leopard a bit more subtle. In case you were wondering, the leopard on this dress is subtle in that it's black and white. Black and white leopards don't exist, people. Right?

You may be led to believe I'm wearing this to honor the current animal prints trend for EBEW, but this month we're honoring colored tights instead. I've always loved colored tights.  I had a hard time choosing between red, gold, and magenta. La vie, c'est difficile, eh*? But then again, anything goes with faux leopard, no?

Everybody, Everywear: Colored Tights 

P.S. In case you missed all that snow up there, it got cold here. No worries. Husband and Hound are nice and toasty.

They melt my heart. 

*La vie, c'est difficile, eh? = Life is difficult, eh?

Gorgeous look. I love the leopard with the color of the tights.

And your puppy is just adorable (the hubby looks pretty cute in his hat too).

I'm a big leopard fan...my go-to color pairing is red, but you've got me thinking that I should throw pink into the mix more often. I love the effect! Oh, and black and white leopards totally exist - google snow leopards, they are beautiful!

Thanks everyone! And Kimber- whoa, who knew there were white leopards? I guess I just failed on my childhood dream to be an animal scientist.

I can't wait to try he dress with red next time! Maybe a red top under it? Or sweater over it? Hmm...
