Animal Instincts: My Leopard-print Obsession

So as it appears, I think I’m a little obsessed with leopard-print! Today on my window-shopping journey in Manhattan, I came across a ton of leopard print dresses, jackets, handbags, shoes and accessories. Leopard print is a statement that is not going away! I went to Saks Fifth Avenue and the first thing that caught my eyes were the Christian Louboutin Handbags pictured below. Right away I feel in love with the big tote-sized one to the left. I loved how the black toned down the leopard to display a more suttle look. All of these bags were made out of pony-hair (something I find sad, and do not agree with, but hey, it adds to the value).

After I left Saks, I went window shopping at the Michael Kors store across the street on Fifth Avenue. Sure enough, the first handbags I see are the beautiful MK leopard print ones pictured below. It was a sign from above showing me what I wanted for Christmas ;). Unfortunately, this handbag is also calf hair…I’d feel horrible knowing a calf was harmed simply for fashion. I’d rather eat a cow, not wear one. As my window shopping venture continued, I ended up at Macy’s Herald Square. (My favorite place in that HUGE Macy’s is the Junior’s shoe Department (: ) I came across these cute Jessica Simpson pumps that were just reduced to $60! Jessica Simpson is also a big fan of leopard print and isn’t afraid to show it in many of her designs.

I love leopard print so much, I even make my dog wear it! This is my baby, Precious wrapped up in her like leopard print blanket. She loves it!! Doesn’t she look like a little fashionista?

My only problem with leopard print is that sometimes, people do not know how to wear it! Sometimes people wear tooo much leopard print and it begins to look trashy instead of fashionable. If you are wearing a leopard print blouse, you do not need leopard pants, handbag, shoes, nails, earrings, ring, nose ring, tongue ring to match. Moderation is key!! With prints, you can easily to go from looking trendy to looking a hot mess in an instant. Leopard should be fun, sexy, flirty, and wild. Don’t be afraid to let your inner animal out!
