The Perfect Leopard Sweater and Predatory Prints!

Marc Jacobs, Leopard Sweater

Ever since I saw the Gwen Stefani video Cool, I have wanted the leopard sweater she wears in the video. It's perfect! I love the video, it's visually amazing. What can I say...I love pop music and Gwen and Italy - makes me want to plan a trip to Lake Como

Since I have never been able to find that sweater (*it probably Dolce & Gabanna, circa 2005) I am thinking about his Marc Jacob cashmere sweater above. However the truth is...I have made some animal print fashion mistakes, please see below - it seemed like a good idea at the time...

Animal Print Mistake, Exhibit A

......a predatory print mistake? It's looking a little like a Moo moo in this picture.

This is Beca Rory, 2007 never worn -- it actually looks terrible on me. Gray is not my color.

The model had this on with a pair of black stocking and black patent leather heels, very mod.

I guess it's just a little too much like a costume....for me.

Which got me thinking...I could be Mrs. Robinson for Halloween, get a wig and finally wear this darn thing. I wonder wear I can get a wig like this?
Below is Designer Markham Roberts, using Starks Leopard and Tiger Print Silk Velvets, Tastfully sprinkled into these amazing rooms!

Happy Friday!


  1. What a fun post! I think we all have some embarrasing animal print somewhere in our closets.

  2. Here's to you Mrs. Robinson!

  3. Oh my gosh! Mrs. Robinson is THE BEST costume idea! I wish I had thought of it - we're going to a costume party, and the theme is either "destination" (i.e. difficult) or "famous couple" - would've been great! Don't know if I can pull that together in a week, though!

  4. ....since Vampires are in...I was also thinking Buffy the Vampire Slayer?!?!

  5. those rooms are fabulous! i had to laugh a little bit when i saw this since, for some random reason, i was out eyeing animal prints today -- i even bought a small throw!
