Sew What:Gold Leopard overalls. She's livin' her life like it's Golden! RAE Sewing Competition Challenge #2

Can you tell me why it is that I have two weeks to complete an outfit but I still end up sewing the day before it is due...and I still gotta take pictures?????? 
I know I'm a little cray-cray that's what my problem is, I have to stop this madness. The Challenge was to use view "C" and create a masterpiece. I have been wanting to make a pair of overalls for a long time, so this was my chance. I did not want wide legs and I wanted a sorta harem type leg on these overalls. I had a few different ideals going on inside my head, which ended up in this competition.  The fabric of choice was from my stash and I was saving it for a special occasion and this was truly that occasion! I think metallic gold leopard print deserves a special occasion such as this, don't you? The fabric for this slouchy top was a lucky find, black super light sweater with gold threads throughout the weave. But finding those perfect metallic gold strappy sandals proved to be my biggest challenge, so we had to do them DIY style! 
I'm having fun with this challenge but
