Among the items I picked up from my local Goodwill last week was a Calvin Klein brown leopard print dress. I wanted to see how the dress would look with a brown blazer so I dressed up the mannequin today to get an idea.brown leopard print dress brown blazer gold bead belt gold diamond pendant necklace

Would a Brown leopard print dress brown blazer combination work

A brown leopard print dress brown blazer combination could probably be filed under too much brown; but I actually like the combination with this particular outfit. I guess the answer to the question of whether or not a brown leopard print dress brown blazer outfit works would be that it depends on the shades of brown that are being combined. Although frankly I can’t envision any combinations of brown that wouldn’t work.

I wanted to style the dress with a chunky faux gold statement necklace and a faux gold chain belt; but I had nothing remotely resembling a chunky faux gold statement necklace or a faux gold chain belt in my itsy bitsy collection of accessories.

So I had to settle for using a cheap gold bead necklace as a belt. For a necklace I used my 2012 Valentine’s gift gold chain diamond pendant necklace.

I have been trying to find a nice but affordable chunky faux gold statement necklace and a faux gold chain belt to purchase. But I’ve had no luck so far looking in the usual places. Not surprisingly it’s pretty easy to find numerous out of budget options. For example this HERVÉ VAN DER STRAETEN Hammered Gold-Plated Tears Layered Necklace. I think it would look great with the dress and jacket.

And vintage Chanel gold chain belts that cost upwards of $3000….

As for the shoes…

I think nude pumps would be the perfect choice for softening and balancing a brown leopard print dress brown blazer look. If they weren’t so impossible for me to walk in and I was stepping out in this outfit I would wear the Jessica Simpson nude Carri pumps I purchased last month (Carri patent peep toe nude Jessica Simpson pumps)

Singer songwriter Adelamonica AKA Avenue Sixty editor in chief. Writing as Monica for The Monica Archives. Writing has always been one of my passions. In fact, when I was a teenager, I used to tell people they should remember my name, because I was going to become a famous author. I used to live to write and write to live--not in the sense of writing for income but writing to combat depression and to feel a sense of purpose. I've written novels, poems, articles and essays that I tried unsuccessfully to get published over many years starting in my teens. When I discovered blogging several ages ago, I turned to that avenue as a means of doing what I love without having to worry about publishers and their rejection letters. Modeling is also something I have always enjoyed and something I wanted very badly to do as a teenager. So badly that I used to lie and tell people I was a model. I would carry around a large portfolio style photo album and claim it was my modeling portfolio. But, as with my writing, the people with the power to make my modeling dreams come true saw nothing in me that made them stop me in the streets of New York to offer me a modeling contract with their agency. So when I discovered the ability to photograph my own self (before cell phones and selfies) I took up a hobby of pretend modeling at home and that hobby has remained with me throughout my life as a form of self expression and self therapy. I ask that you kindly excuse my lack of worldliness and any instances where I demonstrate lack of tact or lack of knowledge and even lack of basic intelligence in my writing and posing. I'm just here trying to have a little fun doing the things that make me happy. I'm just an average human for whom writing and posing and singing and dancing and the other things I do are ways I express myself and keep myself going on this ever challenging journey of life. I hope you will find something even remotely useful or interesting in the things I share.
