Vintage; Gladiators; Zootopia

Silk Dress: Vintage (mother's)
White Bag: Vintage Chanel
Gladiators: Guiseppe Zanotti

Last Saturday's weather perfectly complimented another trip to the zoo, this time being the Bronx Zoo. Thankfully, my husband's company sponsored a free trip; otherwise, we would have spent a steep $27 per person (plus extras for the Monorail, the Butterfly exhibit, the Apes, and any food expenses). In the end, however, even an expensive trip to this zoo is worth it; we walked around for at least four hours and didn't even get to see everything.

I bought these gladiators on sale last summer, but they're still available at various department stores (now on sale again). They're pretty indispensable: the neutral metallic shade goes with almost anything, they're comfortable, and the back zippers ensure easy access:


Some highlights from the zoo:

Hogging the limelight:


Awww, isn't he cute?!

Home, home on the range: Where the deer and the antelope play!


Preening peacock:


They give stinky a good name:


Possibly the oddest-looking creature I have ever seen:

I love that you dressed up a bit to go to the zoo!! You look absolutely fantastic... the sheen of the vintage dress is beautiful, and as usual, your shoes are a treat for my eyes!!! You look completely appropriate and uber stylish for a day at the zoo.

The bullfrogs are so cute... haha, just sitting there and soaking up the sun :)

Hi Thumbelina.

What a special piece when it comes from your mom- like a very special treasure!

I remember these fabulous gladiator sandals!
AWESOME! DEFINITELY AN INVESTMENT PIECE & ALSO... COMFORTABLE ;)
Still did not wear my Balmain heels a single time
(guess that´s the opposite of investment piece ;)

LOVE THE SLEEPING POLAR BEAR!

My Mom once told me: When my parents took me for the first time to a zoo and I saw a camel I called the camel "Daddy" ;))
Still feeling ashamed ;)


HAPPY SUNNY DAY TO YOU!
