animal prints

Generally I do find animal prints - if not naturally attached to a beautiful animal of course! - to be (more than) rather tacky and signalling manhunter-with-bleached-hair-fake-tan-bad-taste-and-too-much-bling. In fact it makes me shudder in horror and I'm borderline therapy just by thinking about it.

Having said that, I have to admit I did felt kind of strangely attracted by this mascara from Helena Rubinstein, although it is clearly signalling everything I associate (prejudicial or not) with animal prints (see above). The allure might have something to do with the promised drop dead gorgeous lashes - have you heard that one before? Still one has to try, at least once... - and went by the name *ta-da* Feline Blacks. Oh. my. have. to. have.

The serious try outs haven't begun yet. Still have some old mascaras to finish and not being a big user - but still like to search for the ultimate product, yes I'm dash weird in more than one way - that might take some time. Will be sure to return with a verdict on the piece though. Can looks be deceiving, will the feline touch always prevail, can I be a lash queen, that remains to be seen.

I think animal prints are always popular, I saw a jumper and when I was holding it against me I thought I looked like a Zebra. Funny, yes, these patterns always had a bit a...like mentioned, perhaps less so now, as everything goes. No, they are definitely not for me.

My mother-in-law buys Amelia animal print outfits all of the time. I groan whenever we get a box from her. It takes every ounce of patience not to pick up the phone and say "YOU are the retiree living in Florida, not your 20 mo granddaugther." Amelia owns zebra print leggings. So wrong.

If this one is a boy, I shudder to think...

Oh well, I'm not sure when it happened that "anything goes", Titania, because somehow I'm pretty certain I don't think it does, always. I love it that these days you can express your personality and so many people not being afraid of having their own style, but some things never look good or "go", if not for a good laugh...;)

Oh my, just when I thought animal prints on women were bad enough, Heather... It's strange to think that there are actually designers and manufacturers who come up with this stuff. Btw, I still haven't seen a pic of your personalized Timberlands...??
