Trend Alert: All Things Animal Print

If you’ve been following the Fall 2019 fashion trends, I’m sure you’re not shocked to see me writing about this topic… animal prints!  From the runways of NYC to the mall down the street, you’ll be seeing leopard print, snakeskin and other animal prints everywhere you turn.

As a lifelong animal print aficionado, I couldn’t be more excited that this trend is back and better than ever!  I counted and I already have 10+ leopard print pieces in my wardrobe that I’ve accumulated over the years and, honestly, I would be wearing them still even if they weren’t “in”.  My absolute favorite is when a print or pattern I consider to be a classic or wardrobe staple gets REALLY popular again.  It’s the perfect time to stock up.

I get that you may be a bit less over-the-top excited than I am about the trend, so if you’re just dipping your toe in… don’t worry, I’ve got options for you too!

In-Store Try-On: Anthropologie Plus Size Review and Haul

If you follow plus size fashion news, you’ve likely heard that Anthropologie has launched its first ever plus size collection called A+ By Anthropologie.  Everyone’s talking about it and I even wrote an initial post sharing my first impressions of the line.  You can read that post here.

One of the things I was super bummed about was that the plus line was initially available in only ten stores throughout the US, none of which were within 100 miles of where I live.  What I FORGOT when I was doing my research was that Kevin & I had a trip to Chicago planned for my birthday at the end of March and there was a store about 30 minutes north of the city that did carry the line.

I couldn’t resist the opportunity to go check out the pieces in person, so the Sunday morning before we headed home we made the trek to the Skokie, IL store!

I’ve only stepped foot inside an Anthropologie store once or twice in my lifetime but walking in knowing that I’d be able to actually shop for CLOTHING and not just home items or accessories was so exciting!
