Jungle Cat


Sometimes I feel like this bat-winged blouse was made just for me. I literally let out a gasp when I saw it at the thrift store.  Since I wanted to let the top speak for itself, I decided to wear all black shorts, tights and boots. As you should well know by now, I have a deep affinity for all things leopard and animal print. How could I pass this beauty up?

I'll be saying goodbye to San Francisco soon for my fun filled week in North Carolina, so I just had to get some shots in with the wonderful succulents of Northern California. There will be many pictures taken of our trip for sure since, for one, I've heard that there will be wild mustang horses roaming the grounds! If anyone has visited, or lives in, the Outer Banks of North Carolina, I would love to hear about great places for thrifting and antique stores. Or if you would like to meet up, let me know! xoxo

I don't see bat-winged blouses nearly enough! I bought a hoodie of this type from American Apparel in high school, but this is way cool. Looks great! Have fun on the east coast :)

Gasp is right, I let one out as soon as I the page opened! That blouse is absolutely brilliant. Have a great time in NC and please do take lots of photos.
I would be excited to see horses as long as there would be a barrier between them and me. I am afraid of them but shhh, no one else knows.
