The sign Leo was the inspiration behind this August's installment of the Zodiac Dresser. Dramatic and charismatic, Leos love to be on center stage so I wanted to channel June Cash (not a Leo) for this look.
|50s dress by Claire McCardell: vintage shop in Charlottesville's downtown mall * Ariat boots|
I chose this dress not only for its rockabilly vibes but also because golden yellow is the color associated with Leo. My accessories are gold and bold to refer to the sun, Leo's ruling cosmic body.

While peacocks are not directly associated with this sign, I did feel the showiness of these earrings was very typical of Leo.
|vintage cuff: thrifted|
As you may have guessed, Leos are symbolized by the lion. That's why you can't dress like a Leo without big hair!
To summarize my feelings on Leos, I think when they're good, they're great: bold, warm, generous and gregarious But when they're bad, Leos are just awful: megalomaniacal, arrogant and explosive. How do you feel about that, readers?
