Look What I Got!!--Leanimal


I have been coveting the designs of Leanimal for some time now...and I finally got two of her dresses! The Josefine (see above) is a gorgeous raspberry color and the Bianca (see below) a lovely aqua blue. Both dresses have slight A-line shapes and feature her signature ruffle pleats. I especially love the fantastic fully detachable and adjustable ruffle collar on the Josefine. It is a such a dramatic face-framing touch to an otherwise simple and totally comfortable dress! Plus, I can wear the collar with a simple white tee shirt and trouser jeans for an instantly chic look! I wore the Bianca dress to dinner with my husband and paired it with with some simple black trousers. It looked fabulous as a tunic and the ruffles along the scooped neckline and down the front meant I just had to wear a pair of my fancy gemstone earrings for a very cool-without-trying look! Her Etsy shop is pretty light right now...but that is only because her dresses sell out almost as soon as she posts them. My advice, if you like a piece, buy it immediately...it won't be there when you come back!
