Because It's Raining and I'd Rather Think of Lovely Spring Days

Remember the days when zebra print was hot and leopard print was just a little mini trend that only a select few were part of? Oh how I miss those days. Don't get my wrong, I love leopard prints more than is necessary but I don't need to walk by the shoe department of any given store and see a whole table full of leopard print shoes.
That look exactly the same and cost exactly the same.
Get your acts together department stores. Enough of this nonesense!
But I do kind of really, really love this entire outfit from the Nanette Lepore Spring/Summer show. I get the feeling that many a leopard print dress will be in attendence at next year's prom.
Note the bright accesories though, this is how leopard print should be worn. With flair and fun, I don't think anyone in their right mind can take leopard print seriously so don't even pretend. The first rule of fashion is to have fun with it, and you can really do that with a little leopard.

P.S. The hair at the Marc by Marc Jacobs show? Adorable. I can't wait until my hair is finally long again so I can do it.

Uh just because something becomes popular doensn't mean you should stop wearing it, or be annoyed by it...that's just stupid.

i have always thought that animal prints were tacky, but i have been tempted to buy either a print cardigan or print shoe more than once.

so i feel like i know your fashion tastes, but i cant picture what you would wear to school. i still think you should post like your three favorite outfits or something. or you could have a contest for people to enter their best outfits and post your personal faves. just ideas.

I believe that animal prints are okay, as long as they are in small dosages. i.e a bag, shoes, perhaps a skirt if worn correctly? As for the dress in question, tres chic, just if it didnt have the black part on top, I would not be too impressed.

I love love love zebra print. And lepeord print. At least, in small doses. That dress is amazingly beautiful. Its a work of art, it should in the Louvre. However, where I live, in the land of corn and cows, it would look out of place. So I tend to leave my wild-side to accessories. Like shoes or I once almost bought a bangle that was lepeord print.

I also love the Marc Jacobs hair. And mine already is long so I can totally wear it that way!!!

i've never been big on animal print of any kind, but yes the dress is cute becuase it's not 100% leopard! and i agree with you leopard print is great with popping accessories, like anything red! and that hair is totally cute, if only i knew how to do it!

I have always held a soft spot in my heart for Nanette Lepore, if only for the fact that that is the best designer name ever. Besides that, I love the fact that the entire brand is so unaware of how luxurious it looks, which makes it a lot less cheesy than say, Juicy Couture.

i know how you feel- i walked into steve madden today and saw shoe after animal-print shoe. i'm still reeling, however, i have a black and white party to go to soon, and i think zebra stilettos would be perfect with my LBD.

Animal prints are one of those trends that only the fasion savvy should be privy too because when they're done wrong they're dreadful. Absolutely horrid.

LEITH DEAREST. i have a question.
so. i have this dress. i've worn it before, and i want to wear it to moecoming. i know, lame wear he same dress twice. but i really like it, and i realllyyy don't feel like going dress shopping. but i dooo need to go shoe shopping for the occasion :]

you know me, and i'm tall, so i hate wearing heals. i love owning them, just not wearing them because i'm already maassively tall. i suppose you know where i'm ocming from, because you're tall as well. anywho, i want flats. actually i more need flats unless i want to go barefoot (which if you remember correctly, we end up doing anyway) so do you have any suggestions?

there's a picture of me in the dress on my MySpace, it's in my "who I'd like to meet" section in the scroll thing, it's the second picture i think and i'm in a group of people, and it's a sea-foam greenish color..

so if you have any suggestions as to where, or anyting like that, they would be greatly appreciated!

YES, somebody else is annoyed with the overexposure of the leopard and zebra prints...back in the day, one could really make a splash with a bit of animal print, but now it's everywhere. Though I do like the idea of high school kids wearing leopard print...as long as they don't wear it with those tacky hairstyles with the twists and whatnot. That annoys the heck outta me. Anyway, I wore a (fake)fur leopard print jacket to prom last year. It was awesome.
