Today I found some of the most interesting styles in leopard print and one of these styles has caught my undivided attention. So, I'm going to preview them and decide if I really want to make one of them. I found an article while browsing The Daily Mail UK. I was actually engulfed in reading this article about Leopard skin has gone classy. I have not been a fan of leopard, zebra, or any animal type prints, but after seeing these photos of such beautiful representations, I think I am about to make some changes.

Now this is a dress to puf for. I think back to a younger me and I see myself in this dress, but how would I go about making it a me for today? I think I would go with McCall's 6462. This is more of the style that I would use to achieve this look for the me of today. I don't exactly have the tummy that I had many years back so a compromise in design would be the protocol here. I would keep the bodice with the off the shoulder theme and change the skirt to be more flattering to me. Sounds solid doesn't it? Well, we will just have to see if this is the dress that I picked to be the Designer Imposter.
See, this leather skirt thing keeps coming up and it is really driving me insane because I keep telling myself that I need a leather skirt, jacket, pants,, just anything with leather. But let us take a peek at the leopard print blouse topped off with that red sweater. This outfit has a sense of Chanel regalness to me. The bow gives the leather a soft edgy presence.
Well, how would I bring this one together? Oh, I can see clearly now, Vogue 1325 has what it takes to set the leopard print craze to doing business. I would trade the leather skirt for a nice pair of gabardine or wool slacks. Flip the design of the blouse out with a smaller bow and a little trimming in a contrasting color to calm down the cattiness in the leopard. Change the sweater to an all out jacket lined with the leopard print and BOOM! Off to work and look exceptionally good while you're working.

|View C with the cap sleeves would be a perfect alternative for this project.|
These are my insert picks for this dress. I think any of these fabrics would go well in the design. With the right color combo this could be a bombshell of a dress even if you go totally leopard print.
Well, the drum rolls and my pick for the highlight,,,,Is,,,,,,The red dress with the least amount of print. To see how this is going to turn out, you'll have to stay tuned.
Until next time, LOLPOH,,
