Today my little brother (aged 9) and I went and spent a day in the heart of the city. We walked, talked, went to the Tim Burton Exibition at ACMI and then had lunch.
I got this adorable Dorothy Perkins dress in the mail yesterday (thank you Emma!) and had to wear it out in the sun today.
I love leopard print this year, I've always worn accessories in the print but never as much as I have these days. The print is fantastic its cream and black with a subtle hint of brown on each leopard spot. The cut its fitted at the top with a a-line style skirt on the bottom.
I wore my studded jacket (shown in older posts) as the wind was very chilly once we got into the city. My shoes are nothing too special, a pair of patent black heels from Target a season ago and a touch of red lipstick before I left.
Usually i would wear more of low cut on my chest but this fits perfectly so I feel comfortable enough to wear such a high neckline.
Studded Bow Belt - $7.50 USD today from hot topic. Though in my head i thought they would not match they worked perfectly together. I can't get enough of leather real or faux with studs!
The sleeves are capped with a split and sit so delicately on your shoulder.
Now this dress is a size 20 from Dorothy Perkins but this style and I'm usually a 18 on thats site. I think because of the fabric (has no stretch) this size is possibly smaller than the tagged size of 20. It fits like an Australian 16 and I could fit into a size down but it would be a little too snug on my bust.
I can't find this dress via the website as it was a gift but they have 100's of cute dresses that will catch your eye.
