I LOVE peacock feathers! I didn't realize it until I opened my jewelry box especially for feather earrings and it was full of delicate beauties. I will upload pictures of a recent look featuring big hoop peacock feather earrings soon + pics of my feather earring collection :3

There's something about the iridescence of the blues against the greens and dark browns. I love admiring the real animals too. For some reason, many zoos I have been to like to let their peacocks run around free. They're actually pretty small - the tail feathers make them seem HUGE. I want to see one shake them out!
These actually look much better in person : ) I got them at F21. Will model them for you tomorrow!
Thankfully these feathers are all synthetic (I hope ... I know F21's are fake but some of these other Internet images, I can't be 100% certain). It makes me really angry to see people wearing fur and other things taken from real animals. I have to be wary of buying clothes too, because I saw a nice furry vest yesterday at Forever21 that I was tempted to get plainly because of the furriness and cute little pom poms but I realized that it looked too much like real fur. Of course it's faux, but it still projects an image. I especially despise the people who wear fur scarves/wraps that still have the little heads and paws attached. It's disgusting and not fashionable. Maybe soon people will start to sport dresses made from human skin. Appalled? Tell that to the fur addicts.
Is there an animal-inspired trend you just can't get enough of?
