Another season, another trend. The animal motif. I'm not too big a fan of the huge tiger faces plastered on sweaters, but this Zara one is different. It was the intricate beading and embroidery that first caught my eye and then slowly I realized it was a very pretty, festive owl. The colors just jolt you on gloomy days. I love owls because I'm secretly a Greek mythology nerd - an owl symbolizes  Athena, my favorite goddess, obvi. This sweater will be one of those things you'll definitely catch me wearing a little too much. 

The holidays are coming up so quick! But with all these amazing sample sales popping up, it's perfect timing for gift buying...or accidentally spending all the money on yourself. Don't miss out on 3.1 Phillip Lim and A.L.C.  this Thursday and Friday! Hope to see you there.
