Zodiac Dresser: Leo Bad Girl

Welcome to another installment of the Zodiac Dresser, my series dedicated to astrologically inspired outfits. Today we celebrate Leo, a sign symbolized by the lion and ruled by the sun. Scott P. Yates Photography generously offered to shoot me amongst turn-of-the-century lions. (All photographs by Scott P. Yates, obviously.)

Appropriately enough, gold is the color associated with Leo so I chose to include it as an accent color. A charismatic yet corrupting "bad girl" vibe represents Leo well since this sign is known as extremely charming but also bossy and selfish. A desire for excitement and attention coupled with arrogance and a lack of empathy can make Leo a dangerous influence.

Yeah, there's lions on the snaps of this vintage 90s Cache vest; it's that badass. Late 80s/early 90s looks suit Leo perfectly due to this sign's penchant for excess and grandiosity. (If only I had any vintage Versace!)

Try to avoid a Leo's gaze if you don't like to be hypnotized. 
A fire sign, I liken Leo to a bonfire: expansive, bold, bright, ardent, captivating and powerful.

Leo, burning bright,
sunny lion, bold fire sign:
danger and delight.

goofy faces and fabulous manes
Thanks again to Scott P. Yates Photography for these great shots. Are any of my readers Leos? Is your style larger than life?
