Shop Girl Saturday!


As a little side note, I have decided to close my Etsy shop InTheLeopardCloset
I just feel like I was constantly paying to list items 
& renew listings without a lot of movement of inventory.
I will focus and continue to post items on Poshmark

Thank you for your continued support!

End of Summertime Sadness

I really love this "Remembering Summer" poem from W.S. Merwin, b. 1927
on the NYC subway, it has been making me smile.
Today is the last Friday of Summer 2018, 
soon the cold will set in and it will feel like it will never get warm again...

Summer may be almost over,
 but I have fallen in love with this Alice & Olivia "Stace Face" lemon wallet 
that I found on Pinterest:

SO CUTE! 




What I Wore: glasses- Bonlook, lips- Wet n Wild x Fergie "V.I.Pink", necklace- gift from hubby, top- from Portland {remember when I matched with Hilary from The Cutie Life}, shorts- Madewell, sandals- Target {girl's section}



Fridays are even better when they are also paydays! 
I love these little graphics that come with my email notification 
from the payroll service Gusto that Vault Brewing uses:

Dolman Sleeves & Cut Outs


I have been thinking a lot about this 👆🏻recently.
It is so easy to get caught up in the day-to-day stress 
& focus in on the things we don't have instead of being thankful for the things we do.
This has been weighing on me as I work with very expensive luxury items on a daily basis.
So important.

To bring it around to some fashion:
I am thankful for the trip to Thailand that allowed me to purchase 
this sweet shirt with dolman sleeves, which became a big inspiration behind 
Also love these cut out booties from the Universal Thread line at Target
& the fact that I get to pair it with the Louis Vuitton bag of my dreams.


What I Wore: glasses- Bonlook, lips- Trestique "English Rose" via Ipsy, necklace- gift from Nonna and Mom, top- from a market in Bangkok, Thailand, jeans- Loft, booties- Universal Thread @ Target, bag- Louis Vuitton 




In conclusion, 
don't forget to take a little step back 
& remember when you wanted all you currently have.

striped friends & reflections...

I always seem to catch the striped friends 
(that is what I call our brindle bulldog Maggie + our tabby cat Arnold)
hanging out together:

Like when I get out of the shower:


She looks like she is yelling at me like, "Mom this is a private striped friends hang out!"

If I wear stripes does that make me part of the club?!


 What I Wore: glasses- Rivet & Sway, lips- Wet n Wild Fergie "V.I.Pink", necklace- gift from my hubby from Tiffany's, t-shirt & jeans- Gap, cardigan- Forever 21, flats- vintage

It's been a few months since I first sent away a bunch of my glasses to get 
new prescription lenses in them from LensesRx.
I do have some reflections on the prescriptions as I have started to wear the glasses...
Mainly that they are SO REFLECTIVE.
I know I know I didn't "upgrade" to get the Anti-Reflective coating on them, 
it was an extra $29.95 a pair!

I went the cheaper route and now my selfies are mirrors for the world around me. 
I guess you live and learn. 
I love the services LensesRx offers and I still think it is a great deal,
 but with the anti-reflective charge x2 the cost of the other lenses 
and you own as many glasses as I do it's hard to splurge.


 When Charlie tells me to make the bed in the morning 
but there is a very sleepy striped friend who is not ready to get up yet...

"Burning down" Convention Hall in Asbury Park, NJ!

A couple of weeks ago we headed to Asbury Park to celebrate the unofficial end of summer with Jams On The Sand with Start Making Sense.

Wore some fringe and vintage to dance the night away!



What I Wore: glasses- c/o Zenni Optical, lips- NYX "Pink Cloud", necklace- gift from hubby, top & belt- Old Navy, skirt- thrifted vintage, flats- Primark, bag- Louis Vuitton 



Last year we danced in the sand but this year a storm rolled in 
and it had to be moved inside the Convention Hall




Start Making Sense started the show with some Psycho Killer and I knew we were in for a treat! 




This show was definitely one for the books and I loved dancing the night away with my sisters! 

& mom!


My "Stop Making Sense" tattoo with "Start Making Sense" band in the background 
= two of my favorite things 

Ended the night in Asbury Park with an amazing crepe from the Crepe Shop on the boardwalk
and midnight tacos at Mogo (a family tradition)


& we headed home to make a perfect bonfire 

The next day we took the pug muffin swimming and this quickly became a highlight of my summer:

I love these boys!



Barry loves the pool! 
He is completely airborne...

While listening to the Risk Podcast,
& fell in love with this song all over again!

Of course I added it to my 2018 Spotify Jams:


Once again Start Making Sense was the perfect way to unofficially end Summer 2018!
