Visible Monday #76: A Spot of Animal

Welcome to Visible Monday #76! If you want to participate, it's so easy: just go to the bottom of this post for the easy how-to.

I took advantage of a rare cool day to wear my heavy cotton leopard skirt. It was thrifted in NYC, therefore has sacred standing in my closet (kidding, mostly!). I really do enjoy its thick fabric and cool print, and love the shape/length.

On top is a simple black GAP tee and a super-soft ivory cardigan by Nurture. I wish it would cool down so I could wear it more. Black tights and black Aldo boots, recently re-heeled and re-soled, finish the look. Can you "spot" (heh) my new ring?


I feel Visible and sassy, what more could a woman want?


You can see my ring here, getting cozy with my skirt.


Now, let's see what you're wearing, Visible Women!!

The guidelines to participate in the Visible Monday Link-Up are so simple!
  1. Whoever wants to can join in! Just compose a post that includes any outfit, accessory, piece of jewelry, hairstyle, cosmetic or other adornment that makes you feel more confident, alive and visible that day.
  2. Include a link to Not Dead Yet Style somewhere in your post.
  3. Go to the bottom of this post and click on this cute little link:


In the "Next Step", you crop the pic (easy tool) you want to display, and you're done!

  8. Spotty dotty fab! I love how perfectly your ring goes with it. I'm also sad about how warm the weather has been. I probably won't be seeing much of my very heavy winter gear. Plus the horrible Ick that's been going around is much worse with the weather bouncing back and forth. What happened to winter?!

  32. I always love animal print but my favorite is that you added the brown belt. I just bought a vintage one this weekend mainly to wear with black like you did here..loving a touch of brown with black!
