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!)
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.
Thanks again to Scott P. Yates Photography for these great shots. Are any of my readers Leos? Is your style larger than life?
