I've always been kind of apprehensive about wearing animal print... I attribute this to the combination of a young Ailyn's tendency to play 101 Dalmatians on repeat + her dislike for Cruella de Vil. In the past, I've shied away from rocking animal print because though it might be classic, it doesn't always appear classy. Other bloggers--especially those who treat animal prints like neutrals-- have inspired me to give animal print a fair shake. Since I haven't fully committed to the trend though, I didn't want to purchase anything too expensive, so my first stop was Forever 21. I picked up this feminine dress for under $25. Though I'm still a tentative user, I do find myself gravitating towards more animal prints since I've picked up this dress. Ann Taylor does a great job with animal prints; I'm a fan of their printed cardigan and skirts.
