If Poison Ivy and Selina Kyle raised a daughter...

I love when an outfit just comes together so smoothly. I got this amazing belt last night from Fab Gabs, and immediately paired it with my emerald knit dress. Green and leopard are one of my favorite combinations, and I found this 40s set over the summer I had yet to wear. Then I remembered I had shoes that match the belt perfectly, and well, I really loved the end result. 

My mother and I did some shopping and lunched downtown, as well as swooned over Dior pumps and sparkly holiday things. Like mother like daughter.

I adore this look.

Gorgeous, really shows off your killer figure. You are lucky to have bought that belt - I find it difficult to get nice vintage belts online - I guess they often get thrown away rather than resold? Could I just ask, do you find it difficult in Portland to wear fur/leopard prints? I would be scared to wear this outfit in Melbourne as I am pretty sure I would get harassed for wearing fur/something that looks like animal fur (it doesn't seem to matter that its not real). I know people who have worn fur in Melbourne and they get shouted at in the street. Would be interested in your thoughts on this.

art deco dame said...

There isn't anything in this attire that I'm not completely in love with.

Katie Aman said...

Vavavoom! Wow this dress is fabulous. When did society decide that sweater dresses had to be so short nowdays? I want to find a sweater dress like this one! You really do have the perfect figure. I'm jealous.

Frances said...

Amazing! I love the green & leopard combination, quite a different feel than the classic red & leopard. And the shoes! and the belt! and the hat! Really, your wardrobe is terribly unfair ;)

"If Poison Ivy and Selina Kyle raised a daughter... " <Exactly.

this 40s knit dress is a dream. in germany you're not able to find a piece like this. you mixed it perfectly. love!

The Boyer Family said...

Love the dress Solanah! By any chance does it have a tag in it? Will you tell me the name on the tag if there is one, because I have a sweater set that is very similar in color, and I am wondering if it is from the same collection as your dress.
