The Year of the Snake

Claire Lopez Animal print, Snakeskin Leave a Comment

You might not love animal print…or you might. But you can’t avoid it and while leopard has reigned supreme for several seasons, this autumn there are a couple of rivals vying for top dog spot in the print stakes. So if you want to change up your look then don a spot of snake print on your feet or over your arm.
