Leopard3_large

Fashion has cycled through leopard so much that it now seems more like a staple than a seasonal trend. Whether confined to accessories or unleashed in full-on ensembles, I think it’s safe to say that the spots are here to stay.

    I love the boots by Tory Burch, I would wear those boots with outfit Vogue Nippons Anna Dello. She is very pretty and she wears that outfit great it matches her very well.The outfit before was a going out to a nice dinner and a play. Another outfit I like is by Erin 642-374 test Pattern burda style Bermuda shorts pattern, more playfull like going to the mountains,golfing,playing tennis,going for a nice 156-215-70 test walk around the park, she is also pretty she seems like she is waiting to see who wins a contest ,and she is down to earth. The first lady acts like she is planning where she wants to go next, they are both Great complete outfits 642-515 test just different plans for the day!! I give both

    I made a skirt from some knit velveteen leopard print. I haven’t posted pics yet though. I love the look, but I feel kinda garish wearing it.

    Kate Spade had a fabulous Leopard jacket! I purchase some great leopard faux fur that I hope to get started this weekend trying to replicate the Kate Spade look that inspired me.

    haha, how gorgeous! But in my world, leopard prints are only existing in grey! :D

    I <3 Leopard print anything. My favorite thing I own is probably my LV leopard print scarf. I always like Dries Van Noten and their mismatch prints they add with the leopard.

      There’s a yearly (or twice a year, not sure) Dries Van Noten Stock sale in Antwerp where you can buy his fabrics and clothes from the previous season at a big discount. Really worth it if you ever happen to be in Belgium!

      The Van Noten stock sales are (or used to be anyway) at the Godefrieduskaai 36 in Antwerp. They’re on for a weekend in October and I think also April, I’m sure the info can be found on the net somewhere. I have got some amazing fabrics (especially beautiful silks, they fray like hell though) from past sales at really good prices.

    That leopard jacket that Kate Moss is wearing is gorgeous! I’ve been dreaming of a similar jacket for a while now. A cat lady has to wear leopard prints, right? ;)
