outfit post: Roses, Leopard, Lace + Plaid

Bella trying to think if she's left any pattern out of her outfit for the day. Hmmm... Polka dots?
Layers. Lots of layers. Piles of layers, for warmth, for added interest. This time it's a heady mix of a red floral pattern, black lace, plaid and leopard print. Everything but the kitchen sink, folks. I'm not particularly pleased with how the pictures turned out- I much prefer natural light for photos, but I do like the outfit. What do you think? 

Now Wearing:
  • fabric black rose headband
  • thrifted leopard print scarf, This N That Thrift
  • D.I.Y. converted thermal shrug
  • pre-loved red/black floral print dress, Freestyle
  • vintage satin/lace slip
  • leopard print leggings, FRINGE
  • Socks 4 Life plaid over-the-knee socks
  • thrifted black boots, Thrift Town

I dig. I also resorted to indoor lighting this week. How dark and rainy has it been? We survived. Loved your boyfriend post btw.
