Shameless, just shameless gall to name your own award, but the award is to show off/thank/promote some of the best of Jungle January and just have one more round of joyous feral fellowship, so as the ‘Animal Awards’ sounded too unlyrical, Ladies and Gentleman- the’ Annies’ were born!
Look at this gorgeous trophy- that would only get lost in the mail, so a gorgeous certificate will be winging its way to each winners home the enhance and motivate the sewing areas of each recipient! I will guard and cherish it for you in my lair until my ungrateful nieces and nephews find it after my death and wonder, ‘WTF?!’ Of course, while going thru the bulk of my husband and I’s things, they will say that an awful lot…….
This event will be sprinkled over several posts- because of its epic richness- and feature the speckled carpet interviews of some of our participants and of course, a nostalgic ‘Look Back in Leopard’ ……..
Thats a good question- it’s Simplicity 2281 and it of course rocks some spots! Next time I will use a less slinky fabric (pun intended) it needs a little more body, I think . I also kind of hate the string tie closure in the back. It’s hospital gowny…..hook and eye next time.
But enough about little me! I’m so pleased to be on the spotted carpet today to greet some of our friends in ferociousness! We’re trying to keep security out of these shots, but of course, we travels with an entourage on par with a Beyonce or other regal dignitary. If you are curious, Flannery our spokesmodel cat could not make it today, prior engagement, but she promises to check her twitter at least once. Bitch.
Oh, here comes one of our guests! VickiKate, care to comment on the celebrity who’s animal style you most admire? ‘Ha, Lady GaGa because that woman has no boundaries and no shame when it comes to her wardrobe. Not that I’d wear any of it, I just love that she has the confidence to do it!’ Thanks Sweetie! Go find a seat for the show-
Laura also joins us today, she of the wonderful style tips and An Affair to Remember Welcome Laura….so, Wilma or Betty- who would rock a zebra stole better? Wilma, definitely. All the very best bombshells have red hair and an hourglass figure like hers. Plus Betty already gets enough attention from being married to a man so much shorter than her.
Hello, Maria! Glad you could make it today- may I ask- what is your spirit animal? I’m definitely a lion, through and through. I think we should have known that one- thank you for being here- please enjoy the buffet…it’s vegetarian!
Who do we have here? Why it’s Katie!
Do you have any thoughts on our favorite print genre? Animal Print (always capitalized) has been a favorite of mine since I was small. Growing up in the 80s, neon and animal went hand in hand. In fact, if I may reminisce for a moment, I recall a much loved tiered skirt with attached suspenders that my mother made me. It was in three colors of neon leopard – hot pink, acid green and luminescent yellow. I loved it so much, I later copied it myself in a more sedate green and black print, but it just wasn’t the same without the jungle goodness. Since I have long been a lover of leopard, a connoisseur of cheetah and a sucker for snakeprint, this challenge was a given for me to participate in. It was also such a pleasure to begin the process of indoctrinating my daughter into the sisterhood. Wha- HEY! You get out of here! This event is for serious style mavens only! SECURITY!!!! I knew we shouldn’t have had this outside! Anyone can just walk up!? Just NO!
We will reconvene tomorrow semi-live for more action and less riff-raff!!
