Leopard Is Not Too Wild for Work

One day at the store while we were unpacking some new leopard Jerome Dreyfuss handbags one of us called it leopard and the other cheetah. We didn’t know who was right! Have you ever wondered what the difference is between leopard and cheetah? Some of you fashion lovers might be rolling your eyes (I get it, we should know!) but I could not answer this question without a quick Google search…maybe I’ll go as far as blaming it on the pregnancy. 😉 Turns out it’s pretty simple and once you know a light bulb goes off in your head, “Duh, I knew this!”

Cheetah vs Leopard

“Cheetah have spots where leopards have rosettes. The spot of a cheetah is a clear, single, black spot separated from the other spots on the cat’s body.
A leopard however, has smaller irregular shaped spots
that group together in circles to form rosettes.”

Any who, with all that being, said we felt prompted to do a post on our favorite, unexpected neutral, showing ways you can incorporate this fabulous print at the place we all spend the majority of our lives, the office. Many people feel you can only wear a small leopard/cheetah accessory to the workplace, but we are here to prove that wrong! As it happens, the majority of what we have in the stores is leopard, although we did get a gorgeous pair of Rag & Bone cheetah boots that are pretty much to die for. Take a look at the slide show at the bottom for everything animal print we have and call us to hold what makes your heart do prrrrr. (Am I being too much? Can’t help it!)
