Fashion’s passion for anything animal print is showing no signs of slowing down. From leopard to tiger to zebra to snake, there’s a species (or two or…) for you. I love them all. But I’m particularly partial to snake at the moment, and this silky snakeprint blouse checked all the boxes.
I had wanted to post this look as Easter outfit inspiration, but we spent the entire weekend non-stop Spring Cleaning our cabin in the Adirondacks. So this fresh, feminine polka dot dress and my neon colored accessories (think Peeps!) will have their day in the warm-weather days ahead.
Isn’t this just the toughest time of year to get your fashion on? One day it’s 60s and sunny and the next raining and 40s. I do a big closet changeover twice a year, but I’ve been holding off. So my best advice for this crazy, unpredictable time of year is…accessories!
I’ve been told by some I don’t smile enough in my posts. I try! Today, stepping out of my comfort zone and pairing this fabulous leopard dress with red haute accessories makes me smile. (To be filed under something you didn’t know about me: I had a brief renegade phase as an NYC teenager and my “tag” was “sonrisa,” which means smile in Spanish. What is a tag? It’s your graffiti name. What can say? I was born and raised in Greenwich Village in the 60s and 70s — where every kid was a bit of a rebel.)
It’s all too easy to fall down the Amazon Prime rabbit hole, isn’t it? But in the name of scoring some serious style that’s seriously affordable, it’s a journey I’m willing to take. And share my top 5 finds for Spring with you!
While I didn’t have the title of this post in mind when I grabbed this fun statement sweatshirt, I did love its message. Then the morning of the shoot I happened to be listening to my favorite jazz radio station (WBGO), and Frank Sinatra came on crooning “That old black magic has me in its spell.” And abracadabra, I had my outfit and knew just what to call it!
