Dots & Spots

I know this outfit is SO "2010" of me, and I'm not trying to make excuses for my occasional untrendliness, but sometimes trends make their way into my life and they happen to be out of sync with the fashion world's everybody buy-this-exact-thing-now-by-this-exact-designer or you-will-look-SO-passe calender.  Sometimes I feel like shouting SCREW YOU FASHION! I'll be over here hanging out with your old friend STYLE who doesn't mind when or how I show up (see also Advanced Style, Style.com, StyleList, Style Bubble).

Whatever the case may be, in my humble and reserved opinion (sarcasm entered at humble, ended at opinion) when you employ the use of leopard print in any outfit you deserve a enthusiastic hoorah and a refill on your dirty dirty martini.  I was told you like it really dirtyYour martinis that is, dirty bird.  A hoorah is particularly deserved when leopard print is skillfully mixed with POLKA DOTS in the form of a SHEER PLEATED MAXI SKIRT (pleated and dotted are SO "2011"  BY THE WAY).  I tell no lies.  Lies, do I tell?

The thrifted sheer polka dot skirt is by LA CITY PARIS and was $4.99 at Salvation Army.  Unfortunately for you I am concealing my birthday suit underneath with a thrifted black slip.  The Roger Vivier inspired heels are BCBGirls that were practically free and in perfect condition on consignment.  The clutch you've seen (here), the chain link bracelet was gifted, and my staple rings were thrifted too, duh! Did I leave anything out? Are you sick of this leopard shirt?  The answer to both of my rhetorical questions is NO, in case you really must know the correct response.

Hope you don't mind my sassy tone this time around. I promise to try and be less sassy in my next post but it ain't my fault. The leopard print is making me do it! 

Cocktail anyone?
