patty's closet. sheer jaguar.

long time readers know that i'm leopard's number one fan.
but after hearing someone refer to it as cheetah print, i figured it was time to learn the differences. after all, what kind of number one fan would i be if i didn't know exactly
what leopard print was supposed to look like?
here's what i learned:
- cheetahs have small, evenly spaced black spots.
- leopards have small, round, black & brown
clusters called rosettes.
- jaguars also have rosettes, but theirs are larger
and have black spots in the middles.

so, based on the larger rosettes and black spots in the middles, i'd say this pretty leopard print top i got from Patty's Closet [in Mililani Town Center] is actually jaguar. and i'd be doing the jaguars a great disservice by not giving them credit where credit was due. it was too late to change my photo,
but i did give them the title.

do you like animal prints?
have you been wearing jaguar all along?
