Kat and Andrea: A Dress Challenge

Sometimes when I visit stores I hope I could borrow dresses, wear them and return them, much like celebrities get to do for red carpet events. I wasn’t on my way to any fancy event, but one of my favorite local shops, Grace Boutique, let Kat of Kitty Corner and I select a dress to style. Kat came up with this idea and so we teamed up, headed over to Grace and despite our very different styles, we came to agreement on this lovely leopard print dress. It was the perfect mix of my style and hers. The leopard print spoke to me while the style and silhouette of the dress enamored Kat.

I styled mine with black nylons, black pumps and moved the  detachable bows to the back of the heel. I also added a sash and a pair of long gloves. I wanted to make the dress more edgy, but once I started playing around with things in my closet, I liked something a little more glamorous.

    I really like how you added the sash. It ties in perfectly (wow, no pun intended I swear) with the bows on the back of your heals. That hairclip is also gorgeous! I hope you guys went some place special with your lovely attire on!
