Ever thought a trend wasn’t for you, until you found “that piece” that made you change your mind? That’s kind of how I felt about leopard print until I found this dress. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve had a handful of leopard print items in the past, but I rarely seek them out. So when I stumbled upon this dress while browsing through my Rent the Runway Unlimited selection, I was surprised as anyone when I fell in love. Maybe it’s the so over-the-top ’80s silhouette that got me – the puff sleeves, the ruching – it’s hard to take yourself too seriously when you wear it. At the same time, it’s the sort of dress that you can’t not have fun in. Where does one wear a dress like this, you ask? Date night! Dancing! Drinks with the girls! My husband loved it. My mom thought it looked cute with a blazer. My best friend thought I could get away with wearing it to a wedding (ok, that might be a bridge too far, but I guess it depends on the wedding?). The point here being that three people with wildly different tastes all thought it was a super cool dress and this wide-ranging appeal makes me think this dress is a lot more versatile that one might realize. Moral of the story: life is short, don’t overthink it and wear the fun dress!
