Our mama has dispensed many words of style wisdom to us since the time we were little. "Only nurses wear white shoes" (debatable?) "Not everything has to be bone tight!" or "You have the rest of your life to wear black - buy color when you can" and many more. But our very favorite has to be: "Leopard is a neutral." And not only did mom talk the talk, she's aways walked the walk and has never not had several leopard pieces (clothes, shoes, and bags) in her style arsenal. Her affection for the pattern and confidence mixing it with other prints and classic staples over the years, and wearing it with anything and everything is something we feel lucky to have inherited. Yes mom, leopard is always a neutral.
Leopard is always in style (it's the animal print that never gets old) but is having a major moment as of late. kate spade new york - a brand that's never been shy about spots and those of the leopard variety - has a full leopard collection thats equal parts classic, rawr, and whimsical (a combination that is just so ksny).
We couldn't be happier that next Thursday, October 5th, we'll both be at the kate spade new york store at Dallas' Northpark Center from 6-8pm helping the brand celebrate their #LeopardLeopardLeopard event! All across the country between October 2nd and 8th, kate spade new york stores will be having all-out leopard events and they're something you all are not going to want to miss out on. We're listing all stores and corresponding cities, days, times and co-hosts below but you can see all the details for the festive fall event here to see if one will be in your city!
Our love for kate spade new york runs deep - nearly as deep as our love for leopard - and we couldn't be more proud to be hosting the leopard event in Dallas and in the company of such incredible women who are also hosting city events across the country. Along offering styling tips (spoiler alert: more is more when it comes to leopard), we'll also be doing a Q+A session. Look for us in head to toe leopard (looks we'll be sharing next week!) and please join the fun! (read more to get all the details)
