Outfit: A Professional Leopard

Greetings Fashion Mavens,

How's your week going so far? I'm trying hard to keep my focus on what God has for me and it is giving me sooo much insight, discipline, and humility. What a blessing. I struggle with spiritual discernment, not because I don't have it, but because I don't use it like I should. Thank goodness I have favor, grace, and mercy. The trials we face on a daily basis can really get you down if you don't continue to seek the face of God. I allowed the actions of another to affect me recently. Never again. I can only be responsible for me and I refuse to throw any more pity parties because there are people out there who don't know how to be honest. SMH.

On Sunday, I fed my soul with the word and I stepped out with a new dress I bought specifically with church and work in mind.


WHOA! This wide-legged stance makes me look.......wide. Note to self: Don't EVER stand/pose like this again in a printed sheath dress. SMH!


I went with the "young professional" style for this outfit. The only non-conservative element was my spiked heels.


Oh yea....that gargantuan ring and those statement earrings are beyond conservative. But they add pizazz!!!! Those are my favorite silver earrings and I'm sorry you guys have to be subjected to them frequently on this blog....but I refuse to give them up. It's the only pair I've bought from Forever 21 that has lasted this long.....going on 4 years!!!


The leopard print on this dress is subtle but makes a simple sheath look very modern.



Earrings - Forever 21
Blazer/Dress/Handbag - Zara
Bracelet - Emporio Armani
Ring - Street vendor in NY
Heels - random boutique in Washington D.C.




Arrivederci!

Girl you look hot and I need those shoes! You're right, you can only be responsible for yourself so you shouldn't let the actions of another effect your actions.
What a fab dress and you look stunning! I love and want your shoes!

This is a wonderful look. I actually prefer the smaller printed leopard print. I think that makes it easier to wear with other prints :)

Love your blog! I'm now following :)

Girl I was lmbo at your "whoaaaa!" but I am super self-conscious of my poses, so I completely get it. It actually isn't as bad as you perceive it to be. I love the look and LAWD knows I love me a pair of statement earrings!
