It’s pretty common to see leopard print paired with red accessories for a pop of color, but I must say combining the fierce animal print and the scarlet red color together is nothing but common.
I was looking for a dress that was sophisticated with a classic silhouette, a little on the retro side and kind of sexy at the same time. I wanted a print that’s eye catching and a color that turns head…and I couldn’t find anything in stores or online that I felt was the one, well at least something that didn’t cost and arm and a leg. So I started to play around with the fabric I had and created this little number. It’s a simple classic style with a feminine sweetheart neckline, modest length, a thin waist band to add definition to the waist and small shoulder pads to give it a retro vibe. It’s one of those perfect little dresses that is bold and will make a statement for many years to come.
I made this in a few of my favorite leopard colors: red, white and coming out soon will be pink and green. Hope you like this one!
