LBC : Design an Outfit around an Animal

Hello Lovelies~





 Has anyone else been suffering from the 'Not Quite Summer Yet' blues? I'm feeling all kinds of drained! But with any luck the weather will change soon and I'll get back into a regular-ish posting schedule.

But for now, it's LBC day and this week we have a really fun subject. ' Pick and Animal and Create an Outfit around it'.

 Now there are plenty of animals that are considered Lolita, like Bears, Bunnies, Kittens, Dogs, and Dear. I love all of these animals, especially Dear and Bunnies, but I wanted to do something a bit more....off the typical frilly path.


Despite my love of light blue, pink, ruffles, and chiffon, I LOVE animal prints! Leopard/Cheetah being my favorite. I'm sure those of you who've been following me for awhile might remember my Cheetah Print bedspread and my pink Cheetah Print slippers.





I even have a Cheetah print stocking when Christmas comes around ^_^ So I can bet you can tell what animal I picked!





Let's get to the outfit~

 I started with Metamorphoses' 'Rose Leopard' printed High Waist Pinafore Dress. I've had my eye on this dress for a long time and am so in love with this print it's not funny.




I'm not sure about the floppy bow on the front, but the dress and print are amazing, so the bow can be over looked. Personally, I'd remove it and use it another way.

 I'm of the opinion that some dresses don't need an under layer, but in the fall and winter I would pair this dress with this super cute blouse from IW.




This is the 'Standing Collar Dobby Blouse'. It's a very nice piece that would be a very easy to coordinate with other outfits and I am all about using clothes in more than one look.

 I looked for a good pair of cheetah printed tights, but I didn't see a set I liked, so I chose a nice pair of cream tights instead. 'We Love Color' has a wonderful selection of colored tights for ALL sizes and for this outfit I went with the Light Tan or Ivory colors.







Light colored tights equal dark shoes and while 'Tea Parties' are cute, this dress deserves something you can strut in.




The 'Lace Scallop Heart Short Boots' from Innocent World was just the ticket! The heel is high enough to make the legs look great, while the boots verses high heels keeps the look from being to Gyaru.


 No look is complete without the right bag! This chocolate and beige colored 'Classical Charm' hand bag from IW is more than cute!



Above is the bag with the heart charm, and below is the bad without it.



Top is all off with a cute Beret or Bow and it's done. For hair accessory options I recommend....




The 'Beret with Ribbons and Pearls' from Innocent World.




The matching 'Rose Leopard' printed barrette.




The 'Saint's Pearl Headdress' from Alice and the Pirates.


or


The 'Leopard Beret' from Baby the Stars Shine Bright.
