Steal of the Week: Leopard Dress

Penny Chic leopard dress, $20 at

In this weekly column, I’m bringing you my favorite budget-friendly steal that’s available online or in-stores. This week, we’re talking animal prints. Make sure to check out my blog for more affordable fashion inspiration!

One of the easiest fall trends to wear is animal prints. You can roar as loud or as softly as you like. While a spotted accessory is a stylish choice, I’m always one to encourage experimenting with something outside your comfort zone...especially when it’s only $20!

In full disclosure, the blogger is one of my best friends—and friendly with the Budget Babe too. But even if I never met Shauna I’d still recommend her dress line. Again, each dress is only $20!

I chose to go bold in a leopard print from the Curvy collection. The ruching is great for creating an hourglass silhouette whether you have curves or not. Plus, the stretchy material gives a flattering fit from size XS to XXL.

See how I'm wearing this dress as a skirt HERE. To see more ways to wear animal prints, check out my A-Z Trend Guide video on SydneStyle!

As I said before I would rather buy second hand high end that a cheap item that most definetly won't last. Especially on a classic like animal prints.
One of my fav online consignment boutique is Lorena's Worth. Check their web site ! Great finds.

Ah! This may be true on dresses from Forever 21 but I have purchased dresses from Shauna Miller's line in past. They have held up exceedinglky holes or seams ripped.. constructed in the USA also.
