Sweet Snag! Gianfranco Ferré Bag!

I decided to start sharing my fabulous finds since my friends are always asking me where, when and how I acquire my treasures. lol. So here goes…

I was perusing through a hidden boutique in Boca Raton last summer…. Okay I was scouring the racks for treasure like my name was Blackbeard. That’s when I spotted it. Ostrich & Leather. It was this gorgeous olive green Gianfranco Ferré bag! Yes please! I heard the heavens singing and a spotlight lit up the pathway to this beautiful creature. I non nonchalantly walked toward it (lunged)and acquired It for the insanely low price of 20.00 U.S.D! Instantly in love, how could I help myself? It was the only way I could stop the drool haha! Exhibit A found below….

Hope you enjoyed this sweet snag diary entry!

See ya,

Mixing & Matching

 

  • Who could resist the  Jeffrey Cambell Forget heel platform sandals? Not me! I love them and HAD to have them.
  • When fashion rules are made, they’re made to be broken; so I’m wearing stripes and polka dots! Stripes and polka dots may not always be the best match, but I do like how the cream in my hat, belt and shoes pulls it all together. Aha! There’s a method to the madness!
  • Where to wear this? The Disco baby! Or pretty much anywhere except a marathon. That my friends, could end badly.
  • What am I wearing:
    • Straw hat- DPG- thrifted
    • Cream & orange polka dot racer back- Divided by H&M
    • Cream belt- Calvin Klein
    • Turquoise Skinnys- Citizens of Humanity, Style- Haley
    • Champagne metallic leather upper & glittery striped lower! 6 1/2″ heels- Forget by Jeffrey Campbell
  • Why the colored jeans? I am currently in love with them. I bought them over a year ago and had to buy other colored jeans in order to expand this pairs life span lol
  • How would I mix this up from day to night or from whimsical to sexy? I would pull my hair back and pair my pants and shoes with a cream chiffon flowy blouse and some hot magenta lipstick!

Love,

::Jungle Cat::

Before I begin I would like to dedicate this post to my Aunt Phyllis because she LOVES leopard print SO much and I LOVE her for it!

  • Who can wear leopard? Any woman of any age! I like to wear it as an accessory like a leopard bag, scarf, or shoe to add pop to my outfits. Some ladies wear a sexy leopard cocktail dress, or if you’re feeling spunky you can use It to mix and match with other leopard prints and colors!
  • When did this leopard trend begin? My guess is millions of years ago when people primarily used animal and leopard skin to clothe themselves. I don’t think this trend will ever go anywhere. I have seen it fade away and come back on and off for the past couple of years.
  • Where did I snag most of my schwag? A small boutique in Tampa or while thrifting! Hence the “unknown” brands below:)
  • What am I wearing:
    • Red silk leopard scarf/headband- unknown
    • Blue silk sleeveless jumpsuit- unknown
    • Gold zebra cuff bracelet- unknown
    • Tan leopard Shooterr pumps- Steve Madden
  • Why wear leopard? It brings out your inner jungle cat!!
  • How to wear leopard? Check these looks out that I especially like from millionlooks.com
