Anyone that knows me well is aware of my addiction to leopard print, well, anything. But my particular weakness is for leopard print ballet flats. In a recent closet clean out I realized that I owned at least 5 pairs of leopard print shoes, 3 of which were the exact same shoe (I bought back-ups, just in case). I’ve been good at holding back on these purchases for a while, but my credit card is currently shaking in my hands because I just found my dream shoes.
Holy leopard print flats, they’re perfect! Here’s the coolest thing about these shoes — they’re custom-made from Shoes of Prey. You can pick your own style, change the materials, the colors, the embellishments, and they custom make them just for you! I’m a sucker for anything design-it-yourself (I can’t even drive by a paint your own pottery studio without getting excited); combine that with designer shoes? What’s not to love?
Fair warning if you visit this site and start designing your own shoes, you may be glued to your computer screen for several hours — this is the ulitmate procrastination distraction!

I get overly excited about the before-and-afters on Design*Sponge on a good day, but this console table has me really worked up. Can you believe this DIY is just wood covered in zebra contact paper? Amazing.
My sister and I are freaks, and after Thanksgiving dinner last week, we went to Michael’s to take advantage of their 40% off pre-Black Friday deal (our cousin and aunt came too — at least the crafting freak flag is hereditary).
(Side note: you really don’t want to know what kind of people go to a craft store at 9:00 on Thanksgiving night, it’s a scary breed).
A blank canvas tote… a few stencils… some metallic sharpies… and several hours of permanent marker fumes…
And poof! Animal print tote!
I’m debating whether or not to monogram mine like my sister did, check it out here.
I spent my lazy Sunday afternoon organizing my closet, getting rid of things, storing summer clothes, and grouping things by like color and style. Being the organizational dork that I am, it was quite the relaxing experience. What’s nice about a clean, organized closet is that you get to take inventory of what you have and often start to notice trends, like for example, I own enough little black dresses to get me through weeks of work without ever having to repeat.
Another trend I noticed? I’m not allowed to buy any more animal print… anything. If three is a collection, what qualifies as an obsession? I think I’m there; this doesn’t even include my animal print purses or sweaters.
Mrs Obama was looking ferocious in her designer Halloween duds last week. I think she is the only First Lady in recent memory that can pull off kitten ears with such grace!
She looked so ferocious in fact, she inspired me to click purchase on my Forever21 basket. Everyone could use a little animal print in their day… can’t wait for this to come in the mail!
Last week when I posted on the photos of Kelly Wearstler’s entryway in Vogue, I was so drawn in by the splashy pink wallpaper. Lovely Katie, from KatieMade, let me know that it was produced by Porter Teleo, and I’m so glad she did because I found their website and saw so many other great designs!
I love love love this green and blue bird print, and bookmarked it for my hypothetical future dream home.
And this? Oh man do I have an unhealthy addiction to animal prints.
This snakeskin table, featured on Shelter, is to-die-for. It’s a really simple shape, but the texture and pattern make it look so glamorous and luxe.
Though it’s been awhile since I’ve decoupaged, I think I could pull of an easy DIY by covering a craigslist find with some inexpensive snakeskin embossed wrapping paper to recreate the look, what do you think?
