Into the Wild

Into the Wild

In times where people rather prefer to blend in than to stand out, I think we all need to embrace our inner animal a little more.

It's a jungle out there!

People have always been fascinated by animal prints. But why is that? I have 2 theories:

Maybe it's because of the zoo-esque scenes we all observe on the streets: from roaring alpha lions in the supermarket queue, instantly demanding a second checkout the moment they arrive at the end of the line (most times there are only 3 people in front of them). Or the metro seat tigers – storming into any train like they were in the finale of going to Jerusalem – almost jumping to the last empty seat. Right in time before the elderly lady could reach it... Or the office snake, secretly snatching your (labeled!) snacks from the shared fridge, then being very very sorry afterwards. She absolutely did not see your big fat initials on that yummy coconut yoghurt.

The second reason might be the increasing uniformity. In times where people rather blend in than stand out, I think we all need to embrace our inner zebras/cheetahs/cows a little more. As much as I love my minimalistic wardrobe, I also need some jazz from time to time. Especially in summer. So this EDITED Animal Print Dress is exactely what I wanted. Long, flowy, soft and a little wild. 

It feels damn good wearing it. And it also feels good to stand out.
