Splurge or Steal: The Animal on My Chest Edition {Intarsia Trend}

Maybe you've noticed the influx of Intarsia Animal sweaters lately?
Foxes, Birds, French Bulldogs, Horses and yes, even Tigers.
I sort of love this novelty sweater approach...although I think it's a trend that will run it's course in under 2 years. I prefer to spend small $ on trends and save the $$$ for classic pieces both in my home design projects and my wardrobe. I'm predicting that home decor will follow this animal novelty trend and we'll be seeing a lot of fox pillows like this one from Pottery Barn and tons of other Intarsia inspired home decor items throughout 2014!

Are you on the Intarsia Animal Novelty Sweater Bandwagon?
Will our kids be wearing these to UGLY SWEATER PARTIES AT SOME POINT IN THE FUTURE?


  1. i have to say that i can't do it yet! i remember saying that about skinny jeans though and i definitely came around, so just laugh at me when you see me wearing some fox sweater.
