[ 6 picks ] a leopard cannot change his spots

... and a good thing it is, too! cus leopard print can be oh-so-hawt if done right. i will admit that it's easier to take leopard print in the wrong direction, leaning towards tacky rather than rawr-ific. (thanks to the 80s, i must say.) but, with some sleuthing, i've found six fun and lush leopard picks that are sexy and fun - but not tasteless and cheap! enjoy~
