Like any other woman, I like to look at fashion magazines, check out the entertainment channel and scour stores for the latest in clothing. I like to be updated on trends but I don’t necessarily follow them. Trends are seasonal, fashion fleeting but style defines a woman, I think. My style bible is sacrosanct and only preaches classic cuts and dark hues (but alas, I’ve allowed some bright colors to filter in — which some friends say is a good thing!). I’m a cross between a sailor and a vampire because of my affinity to stripes and everything black and blue.
There is a fashion staple however that continues to hound me. I’ve seen it over and over and it keeps on coming back in one form or another. I’m talking about animal prints. Some years ago, I came across a fashion advice column by Lucy Torres- Gomez. She said that she will never wear anything with animal prints. I forget now exactly her reason, but what she said stuck with me.
Lately, however, I’ve been seeing pictures on PINTEREST and all the shops seem to be carrying something with animal print on it. Because I’m not sure that if I am “capable’ of wearing anything cheetah, leopard or zebra (the latter to me is the most acceptable of all), I have unconsciously bought some but have kept them at bay. SO PLEASE, PLEASE tell me what you think — Should I allow this print to be part of my closet space?
INTO THE WILD (in small doses)
Ladies and fashion connoiseurs, should I succumb to the call of the wild? 🙂
