Fall 2007 Animal Print Shoes & Accessories: Giraffe

Let's start our series of Glam animal prints with my personal favorite: Giraffe. It comes in just about anything you can think of in clothes, shoes, handbags, you name it. There are several color and "spot" variations, as there are in real giraffes, and also what can only be called "giraffe-inspired", bearing little resemblance to the actual creature. The Fall's giraffe items come in a wide range of materials, from plastics to fabrics to printed leathers, to haircalf. I don't approve of anyone other than hungry lions killing giraffes, so you won't see any "real giraffe" here.

When wearing animal prints, restraint is key. One large item (coat, dress), or two smaller items (bag & boots, gloves & scarf). NEVER go animal print all over, and unless you are really sure of what you're doing, don't mix and match different animal prints. The goal is to look elegant, not like a big game hunter gone mad.
