I am animal-obsessed. I uttered my first word, “dog,” at the ripe age of 8-months (surprise, surprise, I was an early talker) and I’ve had wildlife on the brain ever since. Animals infuse every area of my life. My BFF and constant companion weighs in at just over six pounds and walks on four legs. My favorite vacations have been the ones spent on safari, be it in the bush or underwater. And check out the accounts I follow on Instagram; let’s just say that baby animals are heavily represented. So, is it any wonder that I pounce on every animal print that I can get my paws on? Once reserved for the bold, I now look at leopard, tiger and the like as neutrals. Just like my beloved companions, they can go everywhere and with everything. Dressed up or down, animal style is always appropriate. Just because I can’t be in Africa everyday, doesn’t mean I can’t represent my animal obsession here in LA.
