Silently Blended in Leopard

As much as I adore animal prints I actually do not possess a ton of leopard, especially after the seasonal donating session that recently took place in my closets.

This dress is from Oasap. I've only tried items from them that were not garments, and had my reservations selecting apparel, given the fact that it's a one-sized style. But, after a few minor alterations (taking out the drawstring at the waist, and the rhinestone pocket patch) I was happily in a leopard wearing mood! This knit dress is very comfortable and completely accessible to anyone on-the-go, as it packs nicely and flat.

I added minimal touches of accessories with a belt, watch, and vintage bag instead of bold drizzles of jewellery, because leopard speaks for itself! Additionally, I wanted a no fuss look, meaning that it was simply one of those days when I did not want loads of charms dangling from my neck or disquiet bangles shouting from my wrists when in route.

Normally, I don't mind those fashionably reasonable noises, however there was much to do on this day. Have you had one of those moments?

This was a fine look for my day filled with a dose of work, running errands, and having family in town. A little leopard goes a long way!

Wishing you a joyous and productive week!

    What I love most is how you altered this Oasap dress to make it yours. Sadly, I'm not very good at alterations, but clearly, you know what you're doing! Love the print.

    Oh I just love this dress - I think I would have to wear it in a different way every single day - coz it's that kind of style isn't it?  I certainly do have "quiet" days, but I've been going through a very "noisy" phase for quite some time now ... I do have the odd day where I need to be minimal. xx
