This is a first for me. Animal print, that is. I've never actually liked animal print, even though leopard print definitely is a classic print. That being said, for some reason, the Prowl Be There shirt really caught my eye. It seemed like a really great shirt for jeans or a skirt, and I decided to go with my instinct and order it. As you can see, it's a keeper.
The peplum (which is currently tucked in to my high-waisted skirt) is at the perfect spot, where it actually hits your real waist and doesn't flow out too high and make you look frumpy... which I find most peplums to do. It's a bit more daring in the cleavage than the photo depicts on the modcloth website... but it's great for a night out and easily corrected with a tank top under or a cardi over!
I saved this outfit for my Friday post, because it just seems like a fabulous Friday night outfit. Especially paired with my lux de ville bag for a bit of pop! It's definitely made small, so I took the advice and sized up. Thank goodness I did! There's no zipper, so any smaller and I would not have been able to squeeze it on. However, once it's on, it fits like a glove. The fabric is a nice, thick fabric that is so flattering!

Pair the leopard print with some red accessories and lipstick, and it makes for a great Valentine's outfit! From day to night, with a cardigan.
