We often think that behaving in a ladylike fashion is a little overrated. Is it considered ladylike to dance on tables? To go skinny dipping? To eat french fries for breakfast? We thought not. And, thus sometimes believe you just have to show your wild side… But we do so love indulging in ladylike trappings- pale pink silks and lovely little bows, delicate laces and fresh flowers, and of course handwritten notes on pretty paper.
Sigh. How to reconcile our inner lady with our inner wildcat? It’s about attitude…and the perfect hint of oh-so-subtle animal print.
