When I said that I was almost always the last person to follow fashion trends I wasn’t kidding. I first spotted the floral jeans trend on bloggers in 2012. I din’t like the bold prints at all back then but then the colors got a bit softer, subtler and here I am embracing the trend in good old present 2014. That was quick right? I was totally fine with colored jeans, and although throughout my childhood I’d associated certain colors in pants with circus clowns, I was quite willing to experiment and stray away from the boring black and blue. But when it came to prints on pants, it took me a while to warm up to the idea.Even now there are some prints that I could never wear like snake skin. Why would anyone want to feel like they have a slimy reptile skin wrapped tight around their legs? Or feet? We all have our concept of beauty, fashion and luxury but that, to me, is just cruelty – NOT luxury. There are certain things that make me uncomfortable and I simply cannot overlook them in the name of fashion! I read this article sometime back, it’s not the first of its kind nor the last, but as always it made me sick to the core. Stop aping trends blindly. Stop ‘oohhing’ and ‘aahhhing’ just because they are Gucci python boots. The next time I hear a person bragging about how exotic their snake skin bag/pants/boots look, with no idea as to what they are even talking about, they’ll end up with a python around their neck at the bottom of a snake pit! Same goes for any other exotic animal that is slaughtered in the name of fashion.And on that sweet note, let’s move on to the pictures 😀
