It’s goddamn socially expected that one will have some form of leopard spots about one’s person

Now that animal print is a neutral (blesses self and says novena), it’s not just socially acceptable, it’s goddamn socially expected that one will have some form of leopard spots about one’s person at any given moment.

Thankfully, the siopas are heaving with animaltastic clutches, purses and slim little shoulder bags at the moment, just begging for us to buy ’em. Hey – no persuasion needed here, wha? We’ve had a look at this lime and black giraffe print cross body bag, €40, from River Island, above, already, and I’m still In The Want.

Here are four more to know about too.

H&M bag

€9.95 is all H&M want for this bag. I know! Sure you’d spend that on cups of coffee, eh?

Miss Selfridge Bag

This metal-embellished cutie is from Miss Selfridge and will be about €50 I reckon. Who cares if you can’t fit anything in it? Mere details.

Zara Bag

Isn’t this adorable? From Zara, the Leather snake minaudiere with wristband will set you back €39.95.

Oasis bag

If you’re not keen on this shadeway, Oasis also have this one in red – we checked it out recently. Yum! It’s €62.

Whaddya like, Frillseekers?
