In Grand Forks for just one day, Carmela Perez, of Saskatoon, Sask., took advantage of her time by visiting Columbia Mall and buying clothes and accessories, including a black jacket lined with leopard print -- her signature print.

She challenged the old fashion "rule" by pairing brown riding boots with an all black outfit; and, she pulled it off perfectly. A leopard-print scarf was just the right accent to tie everything together. Topping it off with a relaxed black purse, she created the perfect neutral fall look for a day at the mall.
