50s style

I wore my purple leopard dress today because I love it a lot and if fits really well. I have some of this fabric left so I may make a top from it. I paired it with my nerd tights and military jacket to make it modern. Dress-Self made,jacket H&M,tights- American Apparel
I took my picture in front of the one blooming tree in my yard. My yard doesn't start to get beautiful until mid-spring.
Dress- Vintage, Tights- Target,Jacket-Handmade
I only managed to get one picture before my battery died yesterday. I love this dress so much. It fits great but it is so delicate I ripped the sleeve a bit so hopefully I or the dry cleaner can fix it.
