Go Wild

   We all have secret desires that we are too gutless to admit out loud. And I’m talking about fashion desires here.

   I remember this one time when my friend told me about her wish to get an animal printed dress for Easter. I was like, “Are you serious? Animal print? What, like tiger stripes or something?” I have to admit, I was laughing. She looked offended and went, “No! More like leopard print or something.”
   She was crazy, but it got me thinking. Why do we embrace floral prints so easily, and duck when asked about patterns like leopard spots?

   In reality, we’re not very wrong to hate animal prints (for those of us who do, that is). Because they’re loud, gaudy and make you look like an animal-hater.
   But wait. All of the above is true, but, of course, ONLY when not worn right.

Satin Smart

   Do you know that feeling you get when you see someone wearing an outfit that is just so wrong at so many levels, and you just want to go up to them and ask them what in heaven’s name they were thinking while choosing to wear it? But you can’t. And then your eyes hurt to even look at them.
   Now, do you know that feeling when you notice people staring at you with the same expression on their face, pleading you to move away?
   Probably not. But then, sometimes mistakes happen, and you end up embarrassing yourself and feeling scarred for life.
   So you rather avoid those mistakes, right?

Now…. Let’s solve this problem.
   There are certain areas where most of us go wrong. Let’s go over them one at a time. Starting with satin.
