    Well, it IS kind of a lesson in print-mixing. Could be fun on a yacht, or as clubwear, or some other world I know nothing about!

    Funnier even than the overuse of this print is the fact that someone will actually buy this outfit and wear it!

    It’s undeniably dramatic! (and absolutely not for me!)

    In what Bizarro World does a designer put the huge pattern on the bottom half of his model?? I like leopard print myself; all I ask for is a little symmetry–and as a pear-shaped person, I welcome the trend toward Beyonce-bootied females, but this emphasizes the model’s butt without flattering it. Yeesh, can they cut a normal woman a break, for once?!(Exit, muttering to self)

    Ordinarily, Miss J would say “NO, never”. But this photo really makes her reconsider her position.

    In my opinion: Yes! I´m sorry to admit that this leopard print is not to my liking at all. It is too exotic. There is another reason too. I do associate this print with our big brother Russia. Russian women just love this print and whenever I see it worn on a woman, I automatically think of Russia. I need not go further.

    LOL! I don’t even think I would buy it as jammies 😀

    When even I don’t want it, you’re in trouble!

    I believe I heard a saying recently that was somthing like “more than 25% leopard print is too much”

    Step away from the leopard!

    metscan – how interesting that you have that association. I can understand your reaction/aversion.

    Sher – if it were jammies, I’d at least expect the prints to match!

    Duchesse – I have yet to travel in a universe where one would not be snickered at for wearing this.

    Belle – oh you know it! And the wearer will have over-collagened lips (trout pout) with lots of goopy gloss!

    materfamilias – not for me either!

    Katriona – it certainly is an odd choice, isn’t it?

    Miss Janey – I saw a quote today to the effect that sometimes you have to recognize what is too much before you can recognize what is enough. I think this is a wonderful illustration of that.

    Sal – yikes, indeed!

    WendyB – now that’s saying something!

  14. July 18, 2009 / 12:23 am

    Imogen – 25%, eh? I wonder how you calculate that, by number of garments or sheer yardage?

    Karen – LMAO!!! Best one yet.

    Pebbles and Bam-Bam called; they want their jammies back!
