first things first, i must apologize for the laziness i have shown throughout the month of august. ramzan just had me all over the freakin place. my daily schedule consisted of starving/dehydration for the entire day followed by a gluttonous hour at sunset filled with fried carbs and plopping on the bed until the next morning.
but ramzan is over, which hopefully means that i am back. let us hope that the blog will not suffer any longer. so let us discuss things we love.
talking on the timestalk panel earlier this summer, the high priestess of fashion diane von furstenberg stated:
leopard print is completely timeless. it was hot in the thirties, in the forties, in the fifties, in the sixties, in the seventies — all the decades. why? because there’s nothing more beautiful that the leopard, and the way the print moves on the skin and goes up and down. and when i did my first wrap dress, i did a leopard print. and by the way, i keep on doing it, and people keep on buying it. there’s something about how the woman feels feline. it’s kind of nice to feel feline.
girlfriend speaks the truth.
it is no surprise to the people that know me that i love animal prints. i know many people find them tacky. but if done right, animal prints are insanely sexy and chic. and the trend always seems to find its way back into fashion circles.

in the past couple of months leopard print (in white and brown) has been showing up on everyone…in the forms of gowns, jumpsuits, tops, skirts.
and of course, let’s not forget the punch it packs when used in accessories.
here are some fab things for you to drool over.
