Animal Sweaters


I think I've confessed my love for animal print sweaters enough here lately. After bringing them up in several different posts and spending a few different afternoons digging through google images for them, I figured I'd just shut-up and show you guys a few of my favorites.

Though my thrifting luck has been good the past few weeks, it hasn't been good enough to bring home one of these bad boys. I've gotten so desperate at this point that part of me has been tempted to spend the $88 that Urban Outfitters is asking for that Peter Jensen bunny sweater. But the practical part of my brain always stops me before I make it that far. I figured if I couldn't get my hands on one, I'd at least live vicariously through these photographs.

What is it about animals and jumpers that equals magic? I work in a vintage shop and we get some amazing examples, most recently a tiger on a jumper knitted in gold thread. I should take some photos!

I ADORE these I had a red dog print sweater when I was younger that my nana knitted for me that I refused to take off! That horse one is all kinds of brilliant!

That first one is perfect! I want it! Though I can't complain, I thrifted a pretty awesome horse cardigan last year (and it's very similar to the horse one seen here!)

I love the giraffe one the best!
Somewhere in our crazy chaotic house, I have a long grey sweater with a big ol swan on it. If I find it before it gets warm again, I'll send it to you to play with! I doubt it would fit over JR Jr this winter anyway.

I just saw a pair of animal gloves at accessorize ( hope that I´ve written it in the right way, I´m never sure about that :D )
and I noticed that I really like the animal-knitted-clothes-thing :)
