Unleash Your Beautiful Basic Instincts

Get Alessandra’s look with the Pounce with Me Dress, Button Up Basics Cardigan, Gabriel-la Belt, Dionysus Bag, and Rue Estienne Heel.

I’m often perplexed by animal print. How does one style the chaotic pattern of a cheetah’s camouflage without looking too–well, wild? Lucky for me, Alessandra of Rosaspina Vintage provides immediate inspiration. Alessandra’s animal print frock is subdued by a simple brown cardi, with a black belt ’round her waist, and a suave pair of black boots to even out the look and maintain the warm color palette. With a pair of cat eye sunnies and a sweet satchel, she created a sweet ‘n’ chic look ready for just about any occasion.

    That dress would look amazing with a sailor style collar! (It looks pretty fabulous anyway of course) 😉

    i am usually very wary of animal prints (i fear looking like a cougar…get it?!), but her look makes me think i could rock it without looking totally cheesy.

    I’m with Carrie.. I tend to stay away from too many animal inspired prints but that dress is such a classy way to wear it since it’s so small! Also loving the Gabriel-la belt!

    The dress on the right would look really cute with a cable turtle neck shirt in the winter!
