I am crazy about owls. My high school mascot was an owl and my aunt and grandma collected owls, so our house was full of them when I was growing up. It was a little kooky, but a lot of fun. A couple of my grandma's owls have migrated to my house in Texas, too.
Because of my love for owls, I, for one, welcomed the resurgence in owl popularity a few years ago. I'm delighted the owl trend is still going strong. I'm always on the prowl for a cute owl.
Y'all know I love animal jewelry, but for the last year or so, I've been loving animals on clothing, too. I love this dainty owl printed skirt from Francesca's.

The owl skirt is priced at $38, which is a hair above what I'd pay for something similar at Forever21. It gains my seal of approval because it's much higher quality than what's on the racks at F21. It's fully lined, constructed impeccably, and made in the USA. I hope that it will remain in rotation long after the owl trend has died.
Haha. Who are we kidding? The owl trend will never die.
What about y'all? What makes you pay more for an item?
