Butterflies and First Lady Fashion

"Fake News!  I Mean, Fake Animal Print"--Thursday, 2/23/17

A blue patterned dress and plain blazer get a punch from brown leather accessories in this ensemble.


I chose to jazz mine up a little differently, with a bit of faux animal print (pseudo-zebra) + real animal print (butterflies) pattern mixing.  I also like the bit of bling that the gold buckles on my flats brought to the outfit.

Black/blue faux animal print dress (JNY), $4.74/wear
Black velvet blazer (thrifted, Talbots), $0.50/wear
Black tights + black buckle flats by Me Too, $2.43/wear
Black/red/blue butterfly scarf (Kohls), $2.00/wear

Outfit total: $9.67/wear

Gotta take this opportunity to post another butterfly photo from the state fair--this time, a very thirsty butterfly.

In other news...Feeling nostalgic about the Obama administration?  This is an interesting article looking at the significance of Michelle Obama's fashion choices as First Lady.  "You can get some good stuff online!"  Very, very true.

Also, enjoy this brief run down of the pros and cons of America's two party system.
