Dress: Mara Hoffman, Necklace: Speech, Shoes: Dollhouse Sunglasses: Forever 21

since laying eyes on the Miu Miu bird pattern, i’ve been obsessed with animal print everything. and i don’t mean leopard ( but that of course is always a small obsession). I’m talking birds, cats and bunny print.

I tried to get the Zara cat print romper….sold out. Then there was Nasty girl’s feline print dress. Also sold out. (I’d link to both of these but it will make me dwell that I don’t own them). Then, i even attempted to paint my nails with the Miu Miu bird pattern like Stop it right now did. All attempts failed

When i went to the Mara Hoffman sample sale in New York a month ago, I fell hard for this green print dress and was not letting another animal get away so easily

“It’s tiny mis-shaped elephants! you!” said the sales clerk in his high pitched voice.

I don’t think they are elephants (my vote is on an octopus or a body builder with no head) and I knew him for a whole 30 seconds..but whatever this little creature was…it was not escaping.

    I love the dress and the advantage is that you won’t see everyone wearing it!!!

    I love how the sales guy said it was ‘so you’…cause he knows you? haha, whatever, the dress is awesome and so is the mystery print.
