Leopard…The New Black

images-1Not that I’m surprised, but after interviewing, Mr. Salam, the mask salesman on 86th and First, who said his leopard is his best seller, cheetah the runner up, I remembered fashion has the last say.

“Me weef, she con’t not make them fost enough.”

“You don’t say,” said Thin Girl, masked cub reporter.

Sounds to me, Mrs. Salam might need some sleep.

As for me, I tried being professional, but well, my girl came out, so guess what I’m wearing?

Looks rather French with tights, a tight T, and a pair’a Gap flip flops.

What did you say Coco? You’re right, can’t use a plague as an excuse not to be chic.

Thinking ahead, I have two words for you…stocking stuffer.


“I’m a trend setter,” said Mr. Leopard, “who knew?”

    Cheetah and an Audrey reincarnation, a combo meant to be.
    It took me awhile to remember not to put lipstick on. Little kiss marks decorate the inside of my masks and need to be washed. I also have to adjust my earrings so they aren’t caught up in my mask straps. Oh the trials and tribulations of fashion!

  2. Do you think spots will still be in at Christmas? Wouldn’t Santa leave a mistletoe mask? or a manger muzzle?

    Oh wow…your mojo is in full chi…such leopard-ness! Spot on, Susannah!!! We chics gotta’ strut our stuff. Betcha’ the fashionistas will assure we’re properly masked for Independence Day, Labor Day, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Who knows when they will no longer be the rage…if not. our ears may be rutted by too much elastic wear!!!

    My dad was thrilled when my sister made him a John Deere (tractor) mask. We call it farmer chic. πŸ™‚

  5. I was gifted one from some handmade crafty people who make them for the local mountain rescue group. Mostly, I go with basic black for the mask…does clash with my old jeans.

  6. I’m in plain black so there is no confusion over whether or not I have a fashion sense. I would hate to be caught with a cheetah mask and an inappropriately paired t-shirt. Life has too many complications right now.

    My ex wife was kind. She sent us all handmade masks with patriotic themes. I chose one that looked more John Wayne-ish, not so rah rah. Just cool.

    Can’t change your spots? Thousands of years of trial and error went into that design. Now you too can creep up on your prey undetected (so long as it’s from downwind: Chanel no.5 is a dead give-away)

  9. NYC doesn’t waste a second when it comes to bringing opportunity to every corner. That’s just one of the many things I adore about NY. The sense of possibility is in the air, whether it’s an actor, musician, singer, dancer, model, financial expert, real estate, artist, or guy on the corner with masks. It’s the city that turns lemons into the biggest, baddest pitcher of lemonade! God, I LOVE NY!
