Animal Prints: Emily's Look

My appreciation for animal prints is a recent development. For a long time, I shied away from anything leopard, zebra, snakeskin - the look felt too harsh for me. Since then, I've developed a cautious affinity for animal prints under the right circumstances. I fell for this dress a few months ago when I was looking for a couple of day-to-night dresses that could work for meetings (perhaps with a black blazer) but look 'fun' enough for dinner/drinks in the evening. It has so many qualities that I love: the graphic black and white leopard print, the deep V cut of the back, the structured cap sleeves, and the black leather details on the waist and shoulders. Classic w/ unique details = a piece that will see a lot of rotation in my closet.
