Pure Instinct: A Thanksgiving Day Animal Print Roundup

Happy Thanksgiving! This year I'm thankful for all of you dear readers, and for having the time this week to clean up the design of PLU a little bit. And again, thank you all for staying with me over the past two years through highs (frequent posts) and lows (not so frequent posts). I'm xcited for what's to come in the future, and I hope you are too!

Now, another thing I'm thankful for: animal prints and the variations on the animal prints. There have been so many cute lookin' animal print pieces out there lately, I had to post a roundup of my favorites. This classic Mimi Holliday set is one of my favorites (and it's on sale!), but read on to see more after the jump—and just a hint, not all of 'em are leopard!

Guest Blogger Wishlist: Shayna Kulik of Pattern Pulp

Shayna Kulik is a NYC-based designer and the founder of Pattern Pulp (est. 2006), a trend forecasting and design studio where she works with brands and agencies to help define creative and digital strategies. In 2009 she launched the popular blog, a forum dedicated to providing insight into emerging concepts in print and pattern design.

I've been a fan of Pattern Pulp's blog for awhile now, so I was nerdly excited when Allison Beale of George PR introduced us, and nerdly thrilled when Shayna agreed to guest blog her own holiday wishlist! Shayna’s approach to her work is based on making out-of-the-ordinary connections from across many categories and genres. Her love of travel, reading, photography, exploring the Internet and social media, meeting colorful characters in far-flung locales, and immersing herself in the current zeitgeist wherever she goes all contribute greatly to her process—and to her amazing wishlist.

1. Jean-Paul Gaultier for La Perla Feuillage Tulle Set

I love delicate design that's not too girly. The lace has subtle 2D graphic nuances, it almost looks like white eyelet's cooler older cousin.

2. Of a Kind Clove Scarf

Keeping things textured and structured, this scarf from Of a Kind doubles as a bold bow tie!

3. Crumpled City Maps

I travel quite a bit for work and my maps end up either ripped or stuck behind data paywalls. This set of crumpled maps by Emanuele Pizzolorusso is genius. I wish they had one for Shanghai, as I'm headed there in a few weeks.

Animal patterns are timeless and I have them sprinkled throughout my closet. This set from 3.1 Phillip Lim is casual and I love that the shirt doubles as outerwear.

5. Alexander Wang Dillon Sneakers

I'm always on the hunt for stylish sneakers - if they have texture or a bright accent, I'm sold. This pair from Alexander Wang has both!

Say Hi to Thursday: Kimini Stretch-Silk Robe by 3.1 Phillip Lim

Say Hi to Thursday, a special day of the week when there's only one more work day before a glorious weekend awaits. Pretty Little Underthings will showcase a weekend-perfect piece we'd love to wear.

Kimini Stretch-Silk Robe by 3.1 Phillip Lim

There's nothing worse than loungewear/robes that can't give a little when you just want to relax, which is why I have a hunch that this divine 3.1 Phillip Lim piece made of stretchy silk would be so comfy. And when it comes in such a pretty, blushy peach color, how can you not want to try it on? Luxury, comfort, and a little bit of sparkle all in one. And I love sparkle.

Guest Blogger Wishlist: Allison Beale's Top Five Picks!

I met Allison, the creator & founder of george PR, back in September during Fashion's Night Out and it's been a total love-fest over Twitter ever since. A North Carolina transplant residing in downtown Manhattan, his lady has got a style and music taste that will blow you away. You need to read her wishlist. And follow her on Twitter

On my list this holiday season, in case I’m on anybody’s!

1. YSL Mail Y Wallet

This chic little number touches on my love for travel – and fashion. I love it’s clean lines, whimsical exterior and the fact it forces me to carry my change elsewhere (like my Grandmother did).

2. Zinke Dear Eleanora Chemise in black
I’m a huge fan of Zinke and this chemise is classic but still sexy. And, I wouldn’t mind finding it under the tree.

3. 3.1 Phillip Lim Bralet + Panty Set
These flirty florals remind me of oil pastels my Grandmother used to paint for me. It’s the epitome of carefree living.

4. Chantelle Chantilly Demi Bra + Shorty Boyshort
No one – no one – does lingerie quite like the French. (And I’m a Francophone.) I’m also smitten with black lace and this set c’est parfait!

5. Block Lamp (Harri Koskinen, 1996)
This lamp had me at the red cord. It’s such a brilliant design piece and would be perfect on an end table. MoMA, $130.

Shop Allison's wish list!
YSL Mail Y Wallet, $475. Available at Saks Fifth Avenue.
Zinke Dear Elenora Chemise, $158. Available at Forty Winks.
3.1 Phillip Lim Bralet, $115. Panty, $115. Available at Barneys.

Hump Day Pick: 3.1 Phillip Lim Floral Printed Soft Bralette & Cheeky Pant

Um, hello gorgeous! I love 3.1 Phillip Lim ready-to-wear, but his lingerie collection is an absolute favorite of mine. I adore the style of this bralette and it's always produced every season in different colors and prints. When I saw this one, I may have almost started whimpering in my head because it's so darn pretty. I love especially love how you don't notice that the print is washed out/reversed until you see a peek of the inside of the bottoms and how vivid the florals are! Future hubbie, take note.

Soft bralette, $115. Cheeky bottoms, $115. Available at Barneys New York.
