CTA Tattler doesn't typically have the most up-to-date fashion news, but they spotted an...interesting new trend this weekend. One of the riders on a North Avenue bus accessorized her t-shirt with a real, live snake. Let's get it straight: there's jewelry, and then there are pets. Diamonds? Jewelry. Basset Hounds? Pets. Either we're keeping the two separate, or you better be prepared to bust out your best homemade mouse bracelets this fall. [CTA Tattler]
