Animal Print Dresses: Ann Taylor & Banana Republic


I bought two dresses the other day, both on super sale.  I realize that too much of anything isn't good...Sadly, I'm sure that this philosophy also applies to animal print dresses (oh well).  While both dresses are cut completely differently, they're both leopard print.

The first dress is from Banana Republic - I can't find it online. I believe it's called the faux-wrap and it's similar to the Gemma Wrap dress, without the tie. Similar snakeskin print dress from Kohl's here.  Similar styles here.

The second dress is from Ann Taylor, it is the Animal Print Side Ruched Dress.

Ann Taylor dress detail.   I'll try to update this post later today with a picture of me wearing this dress. 


Do you think these are too similar to keep? Should one go back to the store? Let me know your thoughts.


Both dresses feel really good on, they're both soft and the fabric is pretty thick.  The BR dress fits TTS, while the AT dress fits slightly bigger - I sized down.


Please excuse the current conditions of my 1. face 2. unmade bed. 3. face.

Hmmm, I really like both. I think its ok to keep them b/c they are such different style dresses.

I really like both. I've done that before where I bought two things that look similar in one way but different in others. Each one even feels different. I'd keep both and dress them with different accessories etc.

These are great dresses! As long as they look and feel great on (and the AT one fits you well), I don't think having similar pieces is a prob. Glad to have come across your blog - it's always nice to see another fashion-loving esq! :)
