totally converted



Never, in all my years, was I ever a fan of leopard print or any animal print at all really. I couldn't stand it actually. So imagine my surprise when I came across this little Jonathon Logan number and before I knew it, found myself purchasing it. Completely out of my normal style in so many ways, there was just something about it that I liked. Little did I know that once it arrived in the mail it would works it's magic on me twofold. I am totally converted, I love this leopard print dress with all my heart. Midweight fabric, scoopneck, fitted waist with unique tie belt and full skirt - what's not to love? I did not anticipate not even wanting to take the thing off...but that's exactly what happened. It fits like it were made for me, which only makes my love affair with it all the more potent. Jonathon Logan dresses are some of my favorite, they were well made mid-priced dresses, sort of like the JCrew of the 1950s-60s. Something lots of people could afford but also nicely made. Dear me, I am in love...

beautiful dress! i love leopard print if it's done right. and the demure cut of your dress balances out the print.

BaronessVonVintage said...

very awesome! I agree with sc. here's a classic Audrey Hepburn in the 50s sort of cut to it so it keeps the leopard from being over the top. You look SO chic!

"it fits like it were made for me" EXACTLY. I've felt that way so many times, that's when I fall in love with a dress too.
Happy to hear you've found a way to like leopard print, it's GORGEOUS!

I don't like animal prints either--except for my (faux) leopard coat. And this dress, fantastic!

I love the Jonathan Logan dresses (many with matching jackets) I've seen.

Anna said...

You're right..it is quite stunning. And I love how you juxtaposed the dress next to another stunning full skirt. Looks great!

I feel the same way about leopard print, but that dress is gorgeous! It looks like it fits you like a dream and it has pockets! Yummy.

I'm not much for leopard either, but there is something sweet and innocent about this that offsets the print.

absolutely gorgeous! suddenly leopard print is classy and not trashy.

What a beautiful dress!

Gorgeous! I don't wear leopard print myself, but I don't mind it on others when it is the right fabric and pulled together in a classy way. You've definitely pulled it off here.

Corinna said...

the dress looks great on you!

There's animal print, and then there's ANIMAL PRINT, if you know what I mean. On the one hand, you have skin-tight low-cut neon pink leopard-print tops. On the other, you have well-made, well-cut, and relatively demure dresses like this one. It's all in how you go about it!

Like I mentioned before....fierce! You look amazing!
