OOTD #78: On Day 1 of the TCF Style Expo I wore a leopard print button up shirt with cold shoulder cut outs paired with a burnt orange circle skirt for the day event. I accessorized look with Betseyville by Betsey Johnson black bow sandals and glitter leopard purse shaped like lips.
OOTD #79: Look #2
I purchased this dress at the expo from LYfeStylzPlus’s boothe. The gold lace design initially caught me eye by the long train and the stretch scuba fabric sold me on it. Dress featured long sleeves, body con skirt with an floor length train attached the back, it also had flyaways peplum style right at the waist. The short length flattered my legs and the flyaways flattered my hips. I absolutely loved this dress, the long train made me feel like royalty.
OOTD 80: Look #3
I mashed up the matchy matchy trend with the mixed prints trend and here is the outcome. Mixing the same print at different sizes was a first and fun, can’t wait to try it with stripes.
