Animal Magic!

I realised, or at least it was pointed out to me yesterday, that I have a new obsession. Well, an old obsession but one that has only just permiated my consciousness; a love of clothing and jewellery, and anything tacky with an animal on. And i'm not even fussy about which animals; from my Frances Lui scarab beetle brooch to my topshop owl ring to that delightfully tacky t shirt with a horse on it, if it shows an animal, apparently i'll wear it.

And luckily for me, fashion seems to be with me on this one at the minute. Last year the snake bracelet was everywhere (I had a black and gold one in my stocking from santa last year. This year even more animals have entered the mix. And my heart desires all of them. (Click on the image for where to buy):
This years snake bracelet is much blingier (is that a word?) than last years!


Snake: limbless scaly elongate reptile; some are venomous.

Must have tiger t shirt! Perfect with shiny black leggings (which, incidentally, my sister says make me look like a hippo trapped in a bin bag) and shrunken black blazer.

Tiger: large feline of forests in most of Asia having a tawny coat with black stripes; endangered You have no i-deer (ha!) how much I love these mittens!

Deer: distinguished from Bovidae by the male's having solid deciduous antlers


And finally, a fella who never forgets....

Elephant: five-toed pachyderm
the symbol of the Republican Party; introduced in cartoons by Thomas Nast in 1874


Maybe it's time you let some four legged loving into your life?

Love and purrs,
Tor x

I love the elephant necklace! I love elephants. If you love animals on clothing I think you'll love my new pants:
