Leopard Love

It's no secret that Natasha and I are fans of leopard print, but then again, who isn't these days? A contemporary classic that's never out of style, all those old Bette Lynch connotations have been banished and leopard is so acceptable, it's now considered a neutral. Here's how to wear it for winter 2017...…
