Hey, Russ, wanna look through Aunt Edna's purse?

I have a confession to make: I’m not usually a huge fan of leopard print.  I do enjoy touches of it, but I haven’t been able to bring myself to actually purchase a piece for my own.  This all changed the day I saw this incredible robe thing in a vintage shop in New Orleans.  I feel like the particularly tacky rendition of the leopard print, combined with the red leaf design that could easily be mistaken for flames, not to mention 100% nylon composition make this a piece I can wear again and again.  I also suspect I will serve me well when I’m a crazy old lady living with my many many cats.

I too recently came around to the leopard, but this here? This is Ah-mazing. Probably mostly because it also features Palm Beach style jungle leaves. I also covet your shoes, by the way. πŸ™‚

haha, this post made me laugh. i'm not the biggest fan of leopard print either (or really any animal prints), but you did find a gem! i don't dislike when others wear animal print, it's just not something i do myself. perhaps it has something to do with my tragically pathetic sixth grade year, when i was obsessed with legally blonde, everything pink, and, of course, leopard print accessories.

this is a long comment! but i must say one more thing: your shoes!!!!!!!!! i can't get over them.

Reply

your commentary is cracking me up!

and your shoes are radical!!!!

Reply

A piece that will surely stand the test of time. Ah ha. I happen to love leopard with a passion. RAWR! And those shoes. Love the shoes.

Reply

I love how you look. I dont use too much leopard, but I do love it.
Great shoes.

Reply

I've never been a big leopard print fan either, but I'm warming to it now that I keep seeing it worn in more stylish (and not tacky) ways!

Reply

you look stunning! I am not a fan of animal print, but you can definitely pull it off.

I think your vintage robe is so so beautiful !!!

I never dared to wear leopard prints out even though I'm so in love with them.
But if I had this,I would wear it out everyday. Its true,the details are so gorgeous ! And those red leaves are stunning !!

Adore the leggings and did you trim your hair shorter ??

You look beautiful as always <3 <3
