Leopard Galactica


______Our house has been without wifi for three days now.  Yes, three days.  Three torturous days that will turn into four when I wake up tomorrow... that is, if I wake up.  It's only understandable that such a lack of wifi has had quite noticeable effects on my mental and physical state: my vital organs have been showing signs of weakness, my internal body temperature has been steadily decreasing, and my vision has been blurring ever so slightly.  But I believe that I'll be able to pull through this, mainly 'cause I know I can get wifi at the community college where I'm taking a summer course.  Don't get me wrong--I could live quite some time without this wondrous virtual world that we call the interwebs, but when my ability to update this blog is interrupted... things start to get ugly. Real ugly. Uglier than your great-great-grandma's chin hairs during a lightning storm ugly. Yeah, that ugly.

______Wifi problems aside, this outfit here was quite fun to put together.  It makes me feel like I'm channeling that Disney movie, Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century, with this high ponytail, these strappy platforms, and all this chunky metallic jewelry.  To me, this outfit sort of gives off a galactic go-go girl kind of vibe!  Or at least what 1999 considered to be super stellar and futuristic (and hey, with how I'm dressed, they definitely guessed right!).  It's so hard to believe that movie came out over ten years ago--I remember watching it in my old room while slurping down my mom's delicious macaroni and cheese.  Time flies whether you like it or not, I suppose, just as days without wifi do.

Oh no....girl, I totally feel your pain. I live in an old farm house so the slightest bit of a storm and BOOM our power is gone and it takes the wifi with it! The days are soooo looong without blogs to read and my own to update haha! I seriously wish you a quick recovery...and thank god for the community college to nurse you through it ;)
Anyways, I LOVE THAT DRESS! WHY COULDNT I HAVE BEEN IN A TJMAXX WHEN THAT WAS BEING SOLD! I'm obsessed with cutout backs (I mean OBSESSED) and this one is so subtly perfect and still apropro ;)
Love the print, too. And LOL what a futuristic world we live in :D Love the wedges and all the chunky baubles! You rock.

Well... said...

Ahhh, no wifi!? That would be torture...aha as a fellow blogger I can relate. But at least you've got the community college to pull through!
Anyway, before I comment on your outfit, can I just say how much I love reading yours? ^^ Haha, your last one put a smile on my face. He is most definitely a keeper in my opinion too!
Sooo this dress? Yeah, you better be guarding this piece too...because while I'm stealing your jewelry, I'll probably be taking this dress too. As much as I love you girl, this dress just earned a place in my heart too! ;)

YOU PROBABLY GET THIS ALL THE TIME but I really think you should consider modeling if you haven't already. you're so tall and beautiful, lady!!

and i'm lovin the '99 zenon feel to this outfit ;)

LyddieGal said...

Oh man, is there life without internet? doubtful. i feel your pain, I hope you are back online soon!

And yes, you've totally got that zenon vibe. i'm not too embarrassed to admit that was a favorite movie of mine, back in the day.

Jen said...

Stop having such long, beautiful legs! Those flatforms are kind of epic as well.

Whenever the wifi is out at my house I just curl up into a ball and cry. Sort of. Not really. But actually. It's always nice getting a break from the internet though! It makes you realize there's a life outside of the computer. :P

Your collection of dresses is out of this world. I don't own that many dresses -- I'm more of a pants girl, I guess. Plus, I sit like a man half the time, so ... I love the print, and the shoes you paired with it are amazing.

Hahahahah your posts always make me laugh, you have such a great sense of humor. I think I would die without having the internet for so many days. Mostly, like you, because I wouldn't be able to update my blog. Btw, this dress looks great on you! The cutouts are so fun and unexpected.


Julia said...

Now that you mention it your outfit is very Zenon!! I LOVED that movie! And its sequal! haha. Really though, your outfit is cute :)

Closet Fashionista said...

Love this outfit! And haha, now that you mention it, it does remind me of Zenon! Loved that movie :)
I would be able to live without wifi if it weren't for my blog and websites, they are what keeps me addicted to my computer. And the fact that I'm a web programmer, ha ha...

Joyce said...

D: haha oh no, well I am glad the wifi is back so that you could post this amazing outfit! and omg I remember that movie, although when I watched it, I didn't understand what was happening because I was too small. And oooo your dress is so awesome. I really like that cut out back part and the blue (BLUE!) leopard print. The dress and the necklace both makes such a statement but you still style it in a way so that it doesn't clash. yay.

oh and by the way, when I saw that post before this one, I totally believed you when you said you got married! But wow that is so cool that you are a model for a limo service :D

Erin said...

Your legs are a mile long! Super jealous! Love that dress on you-gorgeous color and the cut out is beautiful in the back!

Katie Aman said...

Oh, I LOVED the Zenon movies when I was a kid...I actually taped the first one and would watch it over and over! I can see how you got that vibe from this ensemble, but I think your version is quite a bit more beautiful, and less annoyingly silver metallic ;) haha. Another great post-I really love reading your blog!

Elly said...

I love the futuristic vibe of this look. The accessories really make the outfit! And how intense is blue leopard print! ;) Loving your blog, new follower!

Oh dear I understand your wifi problems all too well. I love internet, not because of kitties videos, that's a plus, but because of the unlimited possibilities it gives me to waste my time XD It's fantastic. I love your sense of writing and style, that's a gorgeous dress. Definitely stalking you :)
