Lions, and Tigers, and Bears! Oh, My!

My second trend - animal print.  Animal print is taking over, covering anything it can get it's paws on; clothing, accessories, shoes, decor, bedding, even my kindle case.  While some may consider the loud, busy prints trashy and erotic, I prefer to think of them as exotic.

Some rules to consider before letting your animalistic nature take over:
1. Pick pieces that are cut modestly.  Animal print already is sexy, if you wear it in provocative cuts your end result will not be chic.  
2. Don't mess with nature.  Leopards, zebras and tigers aren't pink for a reason.
3. Wear one animal print at a time, do not become a walking zoo.
4. Be confident, you look great.

  2. I have always loved animal prints but I must confess I am not bold enough to pull them off. However the F21 purse seems like a nice choice to start off with. :)
