Red and Leopard are old, old friends. Red and Leopard go way back. I still love the class combination of red shoes with leopard print clothing. Both this skirt and the red platform wedges are super fabulous. The ruffles on the tank and the shoes was totally an accident. It may or may not be overkill, but I decided to keep it. The necklace fit into what I had left of my budget and kind of pays homage to sexy librarians.
