Leopard Long Sleeve Maxi

Hey, Lovies, there’s a story behind this leopard dress. I searched everywhere for it the moment I saw it. I was so desperate, I saw a Chictopian post it up on Chictopia and asked her to buy me the dress in NY and send it over. I promised to pay all expenses and was willing to give interest. Desperate much? Uhm, yup. As you know, I like my dresses 2 sizes bigger (at least), so I had her search for an 8, if that was out, a 10 would work. I can always fix it. Better to be too big than too small. Anyway, she came back saying they didn’t have the TWO sizes I had asked for. Every other size they had. I was depressed. Meanwhile, I kept visiting the store up the street from me. Checking everyday to see if they had it. No luck. Yesterday, I called. My favorite sales associate picked up and said, “oh yeah, we have the long sleeve leopard maxi”. I SCREAMED! Told her to reserve a size 8. I changed the rest of my plans, and dashed to to the store. I was there in like 5 mins..hahaha. I tried on the size and surprisingly, I didn’t like the “oversized” fit this time. Needless to say, I settled for my true size (4). I’m a happy camper. I think this is the most I’ve written. Ever. Lol.

PS – SPECIAL THANKS TO LINDALU DESIGNS FOR THE FAB EARRINGS. I love it. Checkout her work here.

I dressed it down today, but when next I wear it, I’ll be dressing it up. Enjoy…

      Awww, thank you. You are so kind. It took a few weeks before it got to LA, so I’m sure it will get to you soon. What city are you in? If you want it bad, I can probably get it for you here and ship it? I don’t mind 🙂

    I’m desperate to find this dress too! I’ve been to every H&M within shopping distance to my work looking for it but to no avail! I managed to track one down in a size 8 but it was too small for me (sad face). Corinne

      Hi, Vivian, I didn’t wear with a slip. I wore it footless tights and it worked perfectly. The tights were not as light as regular tights and not as thick as leggings. Another friend wore biker shorts. You can also try the spandex gym shorts? Really wish the dress wasn’t so light, but for 40 bucks, I’m really not complaining 😉

        i agree! i can’t even tell that you’re wearing footless tights underneath, so just a bra on top i would imagine.. it looks fabulous on you!!

      • Style Pantry October 6, 2010

        Yes, just a black bra on top. You may want to try nude (for your skin tone) or a color similar to the olive on the dress. But since it’s getting cold, why not do a slip and call it a day..lol

        Love your blog, by the way. We should do a link exchange.

      You can wear it anywhere, Marsha. I wasn’t do anything special that day. Just lunch and errands. Lol. Why not?
