python prints Python: Spring 09 Accessories Trend

For every season, it seems, there is an animal print—and this spring, python is it. After a couple of seasons of giraffe and zebra (which we liked fine, but what are we, zoo animals?), we’re feeling this one—snakeskin is, after all, sexy and sleek and after a long winter of feeling schlubby, that’s just what we need.

Our favorite part? It’s the go-to print in accessories, meaning we can pick up a belt, pump or handbag (so much cheaper than a new dress) and update a whole range of pieces we already have, for less. A note: Angela picked up the Mossimo pumps shown here, and can vouch for the fab online reviews they’ve gotten, having worn them through a full day of work and happy hour. Super chic and comfortable.
