I have a hard time believing it, but this is my first animal print garment, ever! Et voilà, I am in love. The Wild spots cardigan will forever be known as the one that sparked my love affair with leopard print. The cotton fabric is thin but it is not sheer (some thanks to the busy print). I’ve never realized until now that leopard print is very flattering, no wonder so many women are self-confessed addicts of anything leopard print. This cardigan is kind of related to the controversial Duquette Leopard Print cardigan from J.Crew that was the cause of a lawsuit filed by Tony Duquette’s company. It is mentioned in this nymag.com article. This is currently on sale (it’s not worth full price because of the material) and is a great alternative to the regular-priced Tippi sweater in leopard. The latter is in my sale watch list together with a handful of other leopard-print garments and accessories. I want them all. Sigh.
