Whoo! We are having a blast here at the Spotted Carpet as more and more of our favorites pop in to celebrate the call of the fashionable wild!
Coco!!! Over here! Who are you wearing? Why it’s Grainline Studios Scout Tee in a very desirable print!
Coco, do you follow any celebs as fashion inspirations? none. Do not follow. My mother rocked in her zebra print capris in 1954! Gee, I’d planned to ask you if you will play again next year, but you have never left the habitat, have you? well, you’re talking to the girl who bought a giraffe-print swing minidress in Filene’s Basement in 1967… God bless your work, Ma’am!!
Well, look who has emerged from her Oscar viewing to join us briefly between shorts and cartoons- it’s Tempest!
So, while we have you- If your fabric stash were a tree, what kind of tree would it be? A lava-tree. Sorry, you can’t ask me a tree question and not expect me to resort to toilet humour. Seriously though, a truffula tree from the Lorax….very colourful, quite furry and all over the place (well, until the Once-ler turns up and helps me with some stash-busting)
Those amazing animals- just accessories or full-on textile dominance? Why? Full on textile dominance….I’m a firm believer in matchy matchiness. If you’re going to wear something most women shy away from you might as well go for it. You only live once and what if you get to 82 and suddenly realise how many years you wasted not wearing that snakeskin/leopard print/faux giraffe ensemble.
Here’s Chris in my favorite Tiramisu- the zebra one! How about a question or two?
What does animal print mean to you? How does it make you feel and how did this challenge move or change your destiny? Oh I’d have to be a tiger as animal print makes feel sleek and sexy
What is your spirit animal and do you follow its grain? Again I’d go with the wild tiger and underneath this facade there’s a wild sleek and sexy woman lurking about inside and in the dark of the night she lets loose LOL
Who’s next? Oh, it’s little me! Well tell us, Anne, how do you feel about exotic animal prints? Really, they just aren’t for me. I prefer subtle solid colors. Sewing is about expressing ones maturity and reserve thru needle and thread. Its not for foolishness!
Jess- I just bought this pattern and I hope I can look half as ferocious as you do!!
Now, here’s one of my favorite people working leopard as only she can. Be inspired to bring a little animal into your everyday as she does!
