Leopards Do Change Their Spots

The Sunday Styles section of The New York Times ran a piece about colorful animal prints this past Sunday and how resort collections are featuring animal prints in rainbow colors.  To read an expanded version of the story that appeared in the Times' T Magazine just cut and paste the link below:


This is welcome news to me since I bought a beautiful green leopard print scarf at Yves Saint Laurent two and a half years ago.  I love YSL and a display of these colorful scarves caught my eye when I was lured in by a special sale.  I still recall standing in the shoe department trying to decide between green and blue.  Green won out, because a) it matched my eye color and that's a good thing in an accent piece worn near the face and b) I thought the color would pair nicely with most of my coats and jackets.

Looking fierce as the scarf makes my green eyes pop

So, while colorful animal prints are not exactly brand new, everything old is new again and I'm always happy to be able to breathe new life into an old accessory, especially an expensive, good quality one.  If you happen to have picked up some technicolor leopard, giraffe or zebra prints yourself a few seasons ago, this is the time for an encore.
