Well-tamed Animal Prints

Every couple of years, the fashion world declares that animal prints are "in," and each time, I just can't seem to embrace the look. No matter how pricey the animal prints are, they always end up looking like something you'd wear to a Mississippi casino. One exception: This season's animal-print shoes and handbags from Donald J. Pliner. The designs use leopard and giraffe patterns sparingly and temper them with edgy red and black leather accents for a hip, urban effect.

I just can't do it. Mississippi casino is right. I really like Dog the Bounty Hunter's wife. She seems very nice. But, seriously, she is the image of animal prints, to me.

I am not usually an animal print person. Strike that. I am not an animal print person, but the Donald Pliner animal print combined with red leather made me covetous of my sister's new kickbutt shoes.

I'd do a ballet flat as an accent with an otherwise very conservative outfit...but otherwise it feels like a costume party.
