I Have a Leopard Problem!

Ahhh leopard print! For the past couple of seasons, it’s been hot for purses, shoes, dresses, pants…well, EVERYTHING.

This is awesome and bad for me at the same time.

Let me explain. I have a leopard print throw blanket, pillows, and sheets.

Three leopard print purses.

Four pairs of leopard print shoes.

And, several shades and colors of leopard print shirts and dresses!

My current favorite piece? This Michael Michael Kors print dress! I got to rock this while shopping in Milan.

I also have a problem with earrings – love these Betsey Johnsons (a gift from my stepmom!)

Even my nails are leopard inspired!

So, yes- I’m addicted!

You can count on seeing more leopard, but I also promised the Hubby I’d change things up décor wise, too!

What’s your fashion addiction?

I love comments:)

Reworking Vintage by Raiding the Closet!

VINTAGE 1970s gold disco purse!

There is a great thrill when you find that special piece…that dress, accessory, or necklace at a thrift shop, and you CANNOT believe someone gave it up!

This purse is one of those finds. Back in Michigan, I would regularly raid the local Goodwill for treasure. One day, there it was…a 70s disco shoulder strap purse! I swear, I felt like I got a passport into Studio 54 when I left the store.

The only trouble with these treasures is that it can be tricky to find things that complement them well. However, today I rediscovered a sweater dress from Express tucked away from last year that did the trick just fine!

I also lucked out and got my hands on some treasure by fellow blogger and friend Signe Savant of thedailysavant.com! She was doing a spring cleaning (which I need to do as well), and this super cool Charlotte Russe choker necklace is mine! Woo hoo! Be sure to check out her tales and fashion as well:)

One blogger's spring cleaning is another blogger's treasure!

I am also very lucky to have a great hookup (my stepmom!) who runs an Ebay store (hollywoodprincessfashion) that has discount designer wear. On many occasions, I’ve received terrific designer shoes, dresses, purses, and jewelry, including these awesome earrings by Betsy Johnson! Thanks, Diane! xoxoxo!
