A Leopard Clutch Is On My Wish List

I love adding a little animal print to my house (did you see the fabulous pillow here?) and my wardrobe!  I have been lusting after this Clare V. Leopard Clutch for sometime and added it to my Christmas wish list, I can always grab the must as it is a pretty good look-alike. I also like this fold over option these shoes, these pumps and this skinny belt.  What to do you think?  Do you like to add a little animal print for some pizzazz?

You are Going to Want to Wear These Slip-ons

Even thought we have a season of boots in our immediate future, I can always get excited about baring my toes in a gorgeous slide. I first saw the light pink fringed satin pair, followed by the black… how fabulous are they?  I would wear then as “slippers”  around my house when we had friends over. Likewise, the must are just as worthy and fun for day and night!  Don’t you just love that Resort can get us through the doldrums of Winter??

How Lovely are These Lace and Ruffled Blouses?

I am always on the look out for one of a kind separates and found these lovely lace and ruffled blouses. I particularly like this floral short sleeve top, this black tulle, this light pinkthis one is budget friendly and, if you want a little more color, this one is really pretty. I like to wear a feminine blouse with jeans, a pencil or a-line skirt or a classic pair of pants.  They look well under a jacket and if they have a little peplum you do not need to worry about a belt.  Which one is your favorite?

Look-alikes: Tassel Earrings

I have been eyeing the long beaded earrings from Rebecca de Ravenel but they are always sold out! So I started looking for alternatives that have the same feel and found a bunch of pretty options here.  Happily, I fell into these from BaubleBar that are budget friendly and I like better than many of the more expensive ones.  Knowing that these wouldn’t be something I wear everyday, I am leaning towards the must version..

Look-alikes: Pointed Toe Skimmers

I am always on the look out for a good looking run around flat (remember these?) and love the look of these pointed toe skimmers. Then I spied a very similar looking pair that were a little less and then to my surprise I found these.  Don’t you love finding just what you are looking for in your price range?  I know I do!  Look-Alikes: Pointed Toe Skimmers | Ridgely's Radar

Look-alikes: Corduroy Blazer

I have always had a thing for corduroy and have a navy corduroy blazer I break out to wear with jeans every Fall (see more corduroy options here).   These pink ones look fresh and would bring a new color to my otherwise very neutral palette. I can see it working really well with all the grey and navy I own.  I prefer the must, not just because of the price, but because I like the style better for my figure.  I think it is time I added a little pink to my life…
