What I’m Wearing
* SEA NY silk leopard print dress unsnapped and worn as a long bed jacket …seen here as a dress in original form. I pretty much felt like I was wearing a cape all day and gave my best Dracula performance at the gallery almost every time I walked by drollgirl’s office. lol. I love this look. I thought it was a great way to spice up a classic jeans and sweater combo.
* Paige Premium jeans Debonair in rebel without a cause wash. Hands down my favorite and most comfy jeans at the moment …last seen here
* Grey cashmere sweater …from my husband’s closet {which he never wears because it would obviously be super tight on him}
* Vintage rhinestone necklace worn over the mock neck with silk fuchsia ribbon {which is a belt from this dress} tied in a bow for a pop of color
* Tom Ford cat eye sunglasses
* Calvin Klein black snakeskin pumps
* Vintage Gucci handbag {which oddly enough I brought out last Fall as well} The classics are always a good thing to splurge on {though I do think I got this on ebay years ago for about $130} because they are ultimately classic thus, always in style. And the lady-like top handle is the it purse of the season. Though really, it’s more about matching your purse to the “look” of your outfit right now
* Hair: washed in the morning ….originally put in a big ponytail but decided a bun was better for the look so I wrapped it around the pony and clipped it down. An easy look that will also give you a nice little face lift when pulled too tightly.

Yesterday I stumbled upon this documentary about the dangers of Aspartame {Nutra Sweet, Phenylalanine – in Diet Sodas and Diet Food, Extra Gum, Equal sugar, and anything that says “Sugar Free”} and while I already stay away from it because it is absolutely unnatural and tastes gross in my opinion, this documentary really REALLY shows how it is straight poison and years of ingesting it has caused many health problems and diseases and even death to people. The documentary {funded by a woman who was affected by it} is Sweet Misery: The Dangers of Aspartame …and it’s long. But really you don’t need to watch the entire thing {like I did} to get the point across. Scary stuff.

    I think I say it every time…but every outfit that you wear that includes jeans is just incredible. Maybe it’s because I love wearing jeans and wish I could put it together like you! Soo jealous.

    Great outfit! I love the leopard with hot pink or red. It gives it the right pop of color. You are always such an inspiration to me.

    Wow, what a great idea, wearing a dress as a bed jacket! I never would have thought of that but right now I’m trying to think what dresses I have that I can un-button all the way down…love the colour accents and accessorisation as well.

    Weirdly, my favorite part of this outfit has to be the burgundy ribbon tied around your neck. It lends the entire outfit a pulled-together, regal air.

    Will definitely need to check out that doc since I’m a doc freak. Plus I also despise fake sugar. Diet Coke tastes like poison to me.

    Maegan, this look is exactly why I worship at the church of “That Dayum Girl is the Shiznit” Missionary Baptist Church!

    Your blog is the bible and we sing Katy Perry songs in the choir!

    LOVE that you find a new way to rock a dress!

    Amen sister. AMEN!

    I really like how you made this dress into a jacket/vest. It’s just a great pop of print.

    I will not be watching that documentary because I love diet coke something fierce. I figure if that’s my worst vice, then I’ll be just fine.

    xoxo, ashley

    For a long time, I hated anything remotely with animal print or leopard like, but suddenly I’ve been craving leopard print bags/shoes/dress.

    Love how you paired it with jeans.

    My youngest is diabetic and we’ve been using Splenda for him. (On his cereal, etc) But I’ve heard how bad it is and am about to switch to Stevia. I just don’t know anything about THAT, either.

    Very cute outfit hun. I esp. love the ribbon idea :)
    I also stay away from Aspartame. Have you read “The skinny bitch”? After I did I would never ever eat anything with Aspartame in it (except my chewing gum :-0)- it´s pure poison.

    Have a beautiful day!!!

    I LOVE the leopard print dress/jacket. It is so cute and it really spices up this kind of causal relaxed outfit and makes it pop! The fushia ribbon also looks really good because it adds just a touch of a hot color with i think is really cool. I simply adore it =]

    I’m feeling this outfit. The the leopard print along with the dark gray top and fuchsia bow go together nicely.

    I’m half way into the documentary video now. I’ve known for quite some time how bad aspartame is but not too long ago, I’d started buying these no calorie flavored waters from Walmart but then I stopped because I was feeling different (or maybe it was just in my head) but either way, after watching this video… those drinks are dunzo! Thanks for sharing it :)
