how to wear a cheetah dress now & later

  1. Marilyn Blum says:

    Beth, I enjoy your blog but usually don’t see the comments. Is there a way I can? Also, can you please tell me the size of the dress you’re wearing? I’d like to order it but have never worn Banana Republic clothing so I don’t know how their sizing runs. Thanks so much.

    O.M.G. That cheetah dress should go right in the Goodwill bag!!! Do not stop, do not collect $200!!!

    • Beth Djalali says:

      i will definitely go past Go and collect the money wearing this adorable cheetah dress!

        I just LOVE this dress and the look you put together! And its s.o me. I’m a seamstress and have more than enough yardage to make a similar dress only it is in black and brown. I’ve been sitting on this but now have become inspired! Will start tomorrow. Thank you and you can pass go and collect $2,000!

          what a lovely talent you have! my great-grandmother and mother were quite talented seamstresses too. i had a kick-ass sewing room for years but i mostly focused on home dec projects. it’s quite gratifying to whip up a garment or gift.

    Hi Beth, i discovered your blog about 2 weeks ago and am loving your posts!
    I also love your cheetah dress but since i’m only about 5’2’’, 125lbs., do you think this look would work for me? I see the dress comes in petite sizes. Thanks so much,

    Love the cheetah dress and Obi belt; you are rocking this outfit! You are right: even if you are only going out to grocery store or medical appts, it is nice to make an effort. The staff appreciate it. Getting tired of seeing joggers everywhere. Will burn some of my joggers as a symbolic gesture of when we return to a new “normal” post COVD. Thank you fo reminding us to dress up, make an effort…. it is good for our mental health and for others around us .

    Good Morning Beth! You always look so beautiful! I have a question if you haven’t covered this yet. I am 63 years old and looking for a maxi dress for spring/summer that is casual but can be dressed up as a wedding guest. I need the dress to be floor length as I am unable to wear anything else. I have looked around but not able to find anything that would compliment me. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    This is so pretty! I love dresses Beth and I am always on the search for good ones because I love the way they make me feel, and how I move in them, especially midi ones. Bring on the dresses! Thank you for the sunshine. Happy day 🙂

  8. Peggy says:

    Love, love, love this dress and you wear it so well.

  9. Kathleen McDermott says:

    Delightful frock. Feminine yet simple. You look smashing in it. And it will be so versatile, as it’s a neutral. I like everything about it. Ordering it now. (Already have all 4 varieties of that darling little purse.)

    Beth, enjoy your blogs, YouTube and Instagram posts. I am 70 and 4’11”. Love the cheetah dress but feel I would be overwhelmed by it. May I ask how tall you are. Thank you.

    • Beth Djalali says:

      i am close to 5’8″ but if you have the right proportions you can rock whatever the taller women do. it’s always about proportions which a good tailor can help with.

    Oh Beth I love this outfit on you. You look gorgeous! I am choosing more dresses & skirts for myself. Much cooler in summer. 21 here & snowing. I did IPL a few years ago. My skin looked so beautiful afterwards. I think I’ll give myself a valentines gift of IPL & roses. My husband of 56 years died this past October. Always look forward to your posts.

  12. Jan says:

    Love, love love that dress. I think I will make it mine!

  13. Samantha says:

    Not usually a fan of animal print, but this is a very attractive dress and I love those boots.

  14. Linda Robus says:

    Beth- Thank you so much for your inspiration. I have NEVER followed a blogger before but I am so happy I found you. I just love your style- you make fashion look so easy. I am hoping I can achieve your put-together look. Thanks again.

  15. MP says:

    Not really a fan of animal prints BUT this dress!!! The belt you chose really adds to the style. This looks really nice on you.

  16. Sharon says:

    Love the dress on you and the belt sets it off. I agree on dresses. I especially love them in warm weather.

  17. Lee says:

    I’m not a animal print wearer but you rocked this look with grace and elegance as always. My question: I’m still in my Elsy 50s but I rely on a use a cane as walking device, is it apropria-te to wear a dress while walking with a cane ?

  18. Marjolaine Leblanc says:

    Love what you write about wearing a dress even when retired! Thanks!

  19. Irene says:

    I just love your look. For me I always feel I am too short (5ft 2) but quite petite to wear a dress like that?
