There's something about animal prints that says "elegant" or "sophisticated" or "chic", I would say! That's why I loveee them! I love cow prints, zebra prints, giraffe prints, tiger prints, cheetah prints, leopard prints and snake prints especially! They're so pretty! But it's kinda hard to find nice ones (with a nice price tag that is) for these animal printed tops in the market. I'm a big fan of animal prints, if you must know! I just think that they're kind of elegant and "glamourous" somehow. hehe.
Animal prints have long been a popular style for many reasons; whether in fashion or even in interior designs. They are generally expensive and considered rather exotic; hence they are a symbol of wealth and status, in the old days. And throughout history, kings and other high status people have used animal print rugs and such, as a sign of status.
But these days, you can find a lot of the "fake" animal printed stuff already. So, buying or wearing an animal printed items nowadays is no longer means a symbol of wealth! It just means, it is a symbol of I have a prevailing taste! hahahah ;p
What I wore: a Zara snake printed top, Topshop black satin pants, Pasar Malam olive green scarf, Diva necklace, TSL ring, Chanel beige bag, Aldo nude heels.
Like a bawse! haha ;p
I almost wanted to 'design' my eyeshadows looking like a snake print too! But then I realized, I'm only going to work, so...the two-toned ones will do! haha
I've always love the classy look. Hence, I always wear those kind of style. I know a lot of people (anonymous people, that is. LOL ;p) have been telling me that I dress not according to my age, and that I look mature/old with this kind of dressings. But then again..for me, style is subjective. There's no specific style for a specific age. At least... I think so? hehe. I mean who says that for a 60 year old woman, you haveee to wear those frumpy cardigans and a dull colored pants?? O___o
And who says, that a 10 year olds gotta wear kiddies looking outfit? Just look at Zara kids collection! They have a bunch of elegant pieces for kids! I know I would prefer to buy my kids some Zara outfits than Kiko stuff, when I have one, someday! hehe. So my point here is that, elegant doesn't mean "old", honey. It just means I got taste! LOL ;p Ok, I'm kidding here..but you get my point right? hehe.
And tell me, what do early twenties women like me, wear to work then, if it's not a blouse and a slack pants? ;)
