Owls are generally thought of as a rather sinister species of fowl based on their physical appearance but due to their current popularity they are perceived as rather cute. Will their cuteness last long after another creature rises in popularity amongst fashion industry insiders? Probably not for most of the masses; however, the fashion industry has made me rethink my previous opinion that this creature had a cute factor of zero. I suspect the fashion insiders will soon decide which animal whether fish, fowl or reptile will supplant the owl in popularity; however, I will certainly keep in my possession two of my recent purchases that honor this creature.
I was initially drawn into the owl craze during my sighting of a cocktail ring that seems to enhance upon the rather noticeable large eyes of an owl. Rather than focus on the features of an owl that are almost fearsome such as their expansive wings, claws and nose designers have softened this creature by emphasizing the attractiveness of their eyes and the sleekness of their feathers.
