What she wore - Leopard & Leather

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.

I also wanted to wear my 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.

    Not that i need any new shoes as I just got two pairs yesterday.

    Thank you so much for your feedback my lovelies, this dress proves that we should go against our usual neckline or shape every now and then and mix things up.
