{inspiration: a walk on the wild side}

Lately have been considering adventurous animal prints such as leopard and cheetah as accents, such as throw cushions and especially when mixed with crisp whites and feminine florals . . .

. . . or on the floor, perfectly paired with white trim and seagrass walls

. . . perhaps even a few fun Fall fashion accessories:
1 - fendi marshmallow leopard-print shoulder bag; 2 - topshop leopard tie belt; 3 - very privé peep-toe platforms; 4 - christian louboutin leopard loubiday clutch; 5 -
miss clichy 140 boots; 6 - helena rubinstein lash queen feline blacks mascara; 7 - toss designs leopard flask by art effect

i like the idea of the animal prints at the moment. The only thing with that though is that it is a trend which tends to come and then go.

Throwing a little animal print into an otherwise shabby chic bedroom adds just the right amount of glamour.

This is fabulous.

Cheers.

My mother always told me that leopard is a classic and that it never goes out of style. Her brainwashing totally worked because I love it!

My love affair with leopard began in 3rd grade with a pair of leopard spot leggings--and it continues on today! There's a pair of leopard spot louboutin flats at barney's that I have my eye on...
