Animal Instincts

Bloggers Do It Better™

A few years ago, animal prints jumped out of their Lisa Frank-residing-pages and onto the fashion plates of the world. Today, the story hasn’t changed. Animal prints continue to positively rock the fashion world every season, be it New York, Paris, London, Milan, or beyond. Today, people are even going as far as to claim leopard print a neutral (I subscribe to that camp).

Would animal prints be as big as they are today without the power of fashion bloggers who rock it in the real world? Let’s find out, shall we? It’s time for another Bloggers Do It Better™!

You Know What To Do

Your mission: sport animal prints. Notice I said prints. Have fun with it. Mix it up by wearing more than one. See the above photo–snakeskin printed clutch with graphic mumblemumble* printed sweater? Genius.

Come back and post your look’s link on PSS on Wednesday, October 5th (that’s one week from today!)

* Apparently I need to brush up on my animal prints. What the heck is that thing? Whatever it is, I love it.

  15. 09.29.2011 / 7:23 am

    This is going to be soooo fun! This is my first BDIB challenge and I’m stoked! I am no stranger to animal print and I do have to say, it will say on my grave “This girl was half zebra as that’s all she seemed to wear”. haha. Anyway, I’m going to start working on my post for this soon! Thanks for such a fun challenge!
    P.S.- Thank you for the “faux is your friend” mention; I am a true believer in that and it is something I’m passionate about, so thank you. 🙂

    I love the animal prints. I just purchased a snake print blouse from chico’s . It’s sheer and the light shining through it just makes it all that much prettier. On the hunt for a similar purse you posted at top.
