Already Pretty daily outfit featuring leopard print wrap dress

Leopard-print wrap dress, vintage – more animal print wrap dresses
Suede platforms, Jeffrey Campbell Splendid – here’s a pair on eBay
Bracelets, various
Watch, Skagen
Hoops, a gift – similar

This dress is flappy. It’s a true wrap dress so that bottom panel likes to flap around if there’s even a HINT of breeze. It used to have shoulder pads and now that they’re gone it misses them, so it’s a bit droopy, too. But despite the fact that it could be named for two of Snow White’s missing dwarves, I love it.

I wore a pair of monster platforms yesterday, too, so when I hauled these out this morning, Husband Mike said, “Is it Frankenstein Week here in the McGraw household?” I believe my response was to stick out my tongue. Because I’m SO mature.

I can’t help it. I just adore platforms. And I got these for a song at Nordstrom Rack over the winter because the right shoe didn’t have any holes punched in the strap. Easy fix with a nail and some careful wiggling!

  • Oh, how I adore that leopard dress!!

    You can actually buy a hole-punch with a wheel that does different sized holes – they are used for belts and shoes and anything with straps. We used to have one at the clothing store I worked at (similar here: http://www.nextag.com/leather-hole-punch/products-html).

  • i totally need me a pair of platform sandals just like that!

  • I love the collar. So difficult to find wrap dresses that have it. I think it looks a lot more sophisticated.

  • β€œIs it Frankenstein Week here in the McGraw household?” LOL that is hilarious ^^ But not very mature to begin with, so I think your response was adequate πŸ˜‰ Oh, and I’m glad there’s another woman in this world who remonves shoulder pads instantly… I can’t stand them. I don’t know why you do it, but I have enough shoulder from Mother Nature, i don’t need some more courtesy of Polyester.

  • You had me at “leopard.” The shoes were a great find, too. Very resourceful of you.

  • Cel

    Agh, I am jealous of you for having those shoes! That is the exact shoe, colour and all, that got me obsessed with Jeffrey Campbell. I have a faux wrap dress that flaps just like you say, but if I’m not careful it gets caught by a breeze while flapping and flips open, eep!

  • Va-va-voom! I love the dress and those shoes are so cool! Nordstrom’s Rack is my favorite place to shop for shoes (I just wish there was one that wasn’t in the MOA!)

  • Excellent leopard print!
