Dear Animal Print

22 Nov

Dear Animal Print,

I have to admit, I was overwhelmingly pleased with your appearance in my life last night.

It’s been a long time since I was that close to a cheetah print fur coat, and I was pleased with your decision to go all the way to the knees and pair yourself with a fedora.  The understated black jeans, boots, and gray shirt you wore underneath kept you just this side of the tracks of the classy train.  A bold choice paired with an understated base—it’s just so lovely to know that it can still be done, and done right.  Have you been watching What Not to Wear?

Also, the Shiny Shirt standing next to The Coat at the bar provided such a beautiful example of how to go a completely different direction and end up in the same great fashion place.  Leopard print!  Next to cheetah! A fine distinction, but one worth making.  I was speechless with joy.  I have to admit, it took a little while to verify that I was looking at any animal print at all, given the sheen and stretch of the shirt across the girls, but through diligent examination conducted from across the bar and some help from my friends, was able to definitively confirm the spots (I don’t know where you learned your scientific research methods, but I was ace in high school chemistry).

I guess I just wanted to say thank you.  (And Shiny Shirt—your ass did look great in those jeans.)

And a shout-out to the band, who really were funky (meaning groove, not smell).
