BRIANA: Put a fox on it? From the looks of it, this crafty creature has made everyone forget about birds. Abbi suggested foxes as a possible DTT topic a few months back because she was noticing them all over baby goods and nurseries – now they’re all over these products Kayla featured in her mood board*, not to mention viral videos. We may never know what the fox says, but what do YOU say about foxes?

Mood Board Monday: Fox Fashion and Decor

MARIANNE: Roald Dahl’s The Fantastic Mr. Fox was my favorite book as a kid (I kind of had a crush on Mr. Fox?), so I love foxes…but it bums me out that they are so overplayed right now. Though I will confess to dressing my kid in a fox onesie and loving it:

KELLY SMITH TRIMBLE: I love foxes. They’re like dogs you can’t tame. They look cuddly but they’re really wild and elusive. I agree they’re getting a bit overplayed, but I’m also glad they’re being used sans hunting scene this go ’round.

KAYLA: Clearly, I love ‘em. I mean, the song kind of ruined them for me. Sorry, but how many times can a person really listen to that song?

But I love all the new Target Threshold entertaining decor with foxes.

DAVID HAYNES: Death to the fox. Tally ho! (I may be biased.)

HANNAH SLAUGHTER: I too adore Roald Dahl & Wes Anderson so I was a little sad when foxes became mainstream designer candy. For the longest time they felt like the dream pet of a very particular culture set. However, Mr. Fox’s newfound fame did not stop me from searching immediately for this fox ornament from Anthropologie when I saw it on @KJP’s instagram. P.S. I’m pretty sure it’s sold out. What is it about animals in menswear that gets me?

BRIAN PATRICK FLYNN: Y-E-S to F-O-X. They have really graphic lines which read well in printed fabrics or pop art, and their shapes make for great accessories. But, hold up: Their reddish coloring clashes a lot with most color schemes, so I’m all about a black fox or a snow fox. Do those species really exist? Hell if I know, but I do know that reddish brown sucks and looks cheap and heavy, and I won’t have it anywhere near my house[s]. Colored foxes, that is my final answer.

KAYLA: BPF – Snow foxes are so real. And so cute.

KELLEY: I think everything about the ‘70s was foxy, Leanne:

KERI: I love a good fox (or any woodland creature for that matter). I recently spotted this adorable design on one of my favorite blogs, and I knew I had to share it.

    I'm not really into the fox thing as home decor or fashion, but the realistic foxes on throw pillows were not bad (at least they weren't cutesy) and the cutesy fox on the baby romper was certainly tolerable since cutesy on a baby is nearly always tolerable. ;) I have a new niece and I am dying to crochet a fox hat and make a onesie to go with it that says…drum roll please…"What does the fox say?"

    Hi there! I know this is kinda off topic however I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a
    blog article or vice-versa? My website covers a lot of the same topics as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other.

    If you happen to be interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Superb blog by the way!
