Change the leopard print for the snake print

According to the Chinese calendar 2013 is the year of the snake and it started a few days ago.Snake years are sixth in the cycle following the Dragon Years and happen every twelve year.
Here are some things that I found about the Snake sign while googling on the Internet:
1. Ideal compatibility with: Ox and Rooster.
2. More or less compatible with: Rat, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep.
3. Absolutely incompatible with: Tiger and Pig.
4. Lucky colors for the Snake: Yellow, Red
5. Lucky directions for the Snake: Southwest, Northeast
6. Lucky numbers for the Snake: 2, 4, 7, and 9.
7. Monday is the lucky day of the week for Snakes. 

What's your sign in the Chinese horoscope?I'm a goat or sheep.

Going to the fashion part we've seen this print on the Spring 2013 runways of Gucci, Valentino and Reed Krakoff.It may seem quite intimidating to wear a reptilian print but it's not that hard.When incorporating this print into your outfit don't wear it from head-to-toe, instead add one printed item and keep the rest simple.
What I like about this print is that it looks expensive and luxurious.If you're not a big fan of the snake print  you can use small accessories to spice out a simple outfit.An interesting twist to the classical look is the colored snake print that makes your outfit outfit look more edgy.
I've picked some stylish items with a snake print to celebrate the Chinese year.My favorite items from this collage are the emerald shoes from Kate Spade (I'd buy them in a sec!), the clutches and the necklace.I think they can really spice up your outfit.
