You may remember last year when I introduced you to my friend Shauna’s line of little black dresses that were only $20. Well, the Penny Chic collection did so well that it’s now back on Walmart.com in new colors and patterns. I’m so proud of Shauna, so I just had to make one of her dresses my staple this week. And the leopard fit in perfectly with this season’s animal print trend.

I chose to go with the Curvy. What I love about this style is it works for all body types. As some of you have pointed out on Instagram, I have lost a little too much weight these last couple of months. I was dealing with some personal issues but thankfully everything is better now. This dress adds just the right amount of curves as I return to my ideal healthy weight. And if you have curves, the ruching does wonders for the body! Since the pattern makes such a loud statement, I toned it down with nude accessories and smoky topaz jewelry. When it gets colder, you can also pair it with black tights and pumps.

    I am not a big fan of animal prints but I think you really look great here! Love that you match this dress with classic bag and shoes to make the whole ensemble more sophisticated. Nice!

    I love animal prints and this faux wrap dress is my favourite style. Bodyflattering and so feminine. You prove that it is not about designer clothes but about personal style!
    I went through a weightloss in a difficult personal situation a couple of years ago and know how important it is to regain a healthy lifestyle. I am so glad your personal life has gone better again!
