Animal (Print) Lover

As you may have perceived, I have always been a big fan of animal prints! I am guilty of possessing countless articles of clothing fully emblazoned with cheetah spots, leopard rosettes, zebra stripes and snake skin prints.  Now don’t go calling PETA on me! It’s faux! But the modern day animal print goes beyond “faux”. The latest trend in animal print is a bit more efficient, more animal friendly, if you will.

The animal prints I am currently loving are those that embrace the full animal, such as the Cardinal and Finch bird print blouse you see below.  More and more I am finding (and loving) animal prints made up of full bodied leopards, horses, peacocks, whales, etc. You’ve seen me in “full bodied animal” print before here and here and I am currently obsessed with anything with lobsters and flamingos on them, so get ready for that!

I paired this adorable bird print blouse with this amazing royal blue, asymmetrical skirt from one of my favorite online and pop-up boutiques, CONCRETE RUNWAY! I discovered Concrete Runway on Instagram and was amazed at the stellar quality of their inventory considering their very affordable pricing.  You’ve seen me wearing Concrete Runway pieces before here and here and for the next 25 days receive 25% off your Concrete Runway purchase by using coupon code: sunfunfashion25 at checkout!

A Slithering Sensation

Well what do you know “It’s the most wonderful time of the yearrrr” and with the blink of an eye it will be 2013! According to the Chinese Zodiac, 2013 is the year of the Snake. I wonder if that might have anything to do with the snake print frenzy slithering through so many 2013 spring and summer designer collections. Gucci, Proenza Schouler, Salvatore Ferragamo and Rachel Zoe charmed this years Fashion Week runways with their serpentine designs and accessories.

I for one am a big fan of almost any animal print, but snake print possesses a glamorous edge that truly makes me feel like a rock star!  I recently found this modern, edgy snake print jacket at “The Dressing Room” in South Miami and I just know it’s going to be my go-to garment for 2013. The shredded back detail on this jacket is truly a thing of “RockGlam” beauty and I can’t wait to wear it over all types of brightly colored blouses.  For this post, I went for brightly colored pants and brought out my rock star shoe game with these Pour La Victoire chained sandals.  Drop me a line, tell me what you think.
