Animal print makes most of us think about leopards, zebras and tigers.
more often than not the fine line between classy and twee or outrageously tacky.
The sight of me in a leopard printed coat does not make you think about Grace Kelly. I look like I run a brothel and a cheap one at that. Anything but the darkest leopard does that to me. Accessories fulfil my cravings.
The doggie dress is wonderfully vibrant. I bought it from another blogger. Unfortunately its top is in a style that doesn’t allow me to wear it without further cover, a seam runs straight across my chest. This pattern isn’t directional and honestly bags of fun.
Cats and frames is loud and bold. A favourite with kids. Even in Germany random people comment upon it (which is actually something that happens here less than in the UK!). I love the pattern but the cut is a bit disappointing for its 80 dollars at Modcloth. Fun though. It’ll get a wacky “fez” fascinator in autumn. Think red velvet with embroidery and a golden tassle.
Same quality is the Kitty Chronicle print, like the frame one a Retrolicious dress for Modcloth. It is a fun print and you can even read it. The articles are grand, silly nonsense. This dress gets its fair share of mileage. I love to pair these patterns with matching brooches. More than just twice the fun, especially since in my size vintage is usually limited to accessories.
I still wonder if I should get this peacock dress from LindyBop. Any other suggestions?
