Illustration Friday: Signs

For this week's Illustration Friday

With more and more animal prints in the stores and on the runway, we wonder if these are signs of the animal prints making a fashion comeback?

Personally I'm not a fan of animal prints. Leopard prints are especially hard to pull off. Then again it's a debated style issue: Wear it just right, you look stylish and glamourous, too much of it and you'll end up looking cheap and tacky.

If you're ever getting a leopard printed top, pair it with this season's skinny jeans for a casual look and you'll never go wrong. Oh -- And make sure they are prints, not skin! As for me, a leopard printed tote or ballet flats would suffice :)

I think the leopard printed top will be too loud on me so I'll still prefer to choose the leopard printed tote to match my outfits:)

Oooh, I really like your style! Great piece.

My last animal print garment was the leopard print finewale corduroy dress with white lace trim my Grandmother made me in kindergarten. She made a matching dress for my doll, too! Although I think I probably looked cute in animal print at age 6 I have never felt the desire to repeat the experience.
