Gorgeous blogger Sheila of Ephemera declared the week of February 28 to be Leopard Week, inspired by my vintage leopard gown by the late Patrick Kelly.
Sheila did a round-up of the participants here, but I wanted to give them some extra recognition. Here they are! Click the photos for the original posts.
The leopard-wearing continued even after Leopard Week. Here are a few of those ladies.
And Frances of Topaz Horizon has been working up the nerve to try red lipstick and leopard. I hope she strikes the WendyB pose when she wears that combo!
There are so many more examples that I can’t fit them all in this post. I’ll have to do a follow-up one of these days.
On a totally different topic, The Huffington Post has posted a list of organizations that are aiding Japan in the wake of the devastating earthquake and tsunami. Remember, donating money to such organizations is much more effective than trying to send food and clothing to places where there might not be much access.
Am loving all the different leopard looks you’ve collected! BTW: Did you know that Frosted Flakes are called Zucaritas in Mexico?
Wendy you look amazing!
You did justice to the great Patrick Kelly.
I remember his collections and how he died so young!
Thanks for the information on The Huffinton Post.

I missed out on all the leopard fun??? The Patrick Kelly is pretty tough to beat. One of my favorite pics of you, careful I might mug you for that dress.
Madeleine Gallay says
(my word is joyous, yay!!)
how did you pull this off?
leopard and black lace and what else do you need.
You mean how did I pull off uploading all these photos? With a lot of swearing and sweating, that’s how!
Leopard week was a roar! Pardon the pun. I couldn’t help myself. I love seeing how one print can translate into some many great looks. It gets me in the mood to start having more fun with what I wear. When is the next fashion themed week and what’s the focus?
P.S. In regards to my blog post don’t worry I totally stalk you.
P.P.S. Now I feel creepy like a real stalker. Please don’t call the cops on me. I would really miss reading your blog in jail.
Amazing! Really dig these looks, although must admit that I owuld probably just wear shoes, since that’s the only animal print I have.
Lenya Jones says
Omg! Total fierceness! Love it when the ladies embrace the leopard.
Make Do Style says
A sterling effort by one and all! I only own a leopard print scarf now but it always works well with anything. The pose stance is becoming default which is fab! xx

Yes, WendyB, I am planning to wear the combo this week! I already modeled it for the hubby who promptly dubbed me, “Pebbles!”
Topaz Horizon says

Emma at Daily Clothes Fix says
That’s a whole load of wonderful, inspiring posts. You and Sheila should be very proud of what you have created. And thanks for renaming me Leopard. I take it as a compliment of the highest order. 🙂
Bwah ha ha ha! I’m so embarrassed. Going to fix that right now.
I miss leopard print, it was all “rid of” by my friends when I let them help me narrow down my closet. I think somewhere I still have hidden away one pair of flats and a sheer scarf.
*gasp*! With friends like those, you don’t need enemies! Naughty, naughty friends.
Wow – this is some big time meow! Great shots.
Wow, thanks for the link and the mention, Wendy! You rule.
Yeah, that’s why I didn’t post pictures of everyone – way too much work. I know how long this took – thank you!
OH MY GOD! I was dying! And with a slow wifi connection too. I must be crazy. It was awesome of you to organize everyone to do this. I loved looking at all the pix.
Thanks for the shoutout! You’re the queen of leopard, after all :)!
Christina Lindsay says
Great pictures. I Absolutely LOVE you in that dress xx
Hi sweet Wendy, thank you so very much! Everyone looks great 🙂 I sewed my dress from a scarf and it has become my fave dress of late 🙂 I wear something leopard each and every day lol.
Hugs from Oslo!
