Rawr!

Posted: March 26, 2012 in Uncategorized

Animal prints are all over.  Elitist snobs would say it’s baduy since it’s gone mainstream but not for me. I love, love animal prints  and I’m so happy that they can be found just about anywhere. Besides, they were never exclusive, so excuse me , di sila baduy. It’s how you wear them that will make or break these kind of prints.

I used to say that  I love leopard prints but when I did my inventory, I noticed that not all my prints are the same. Then I remembered that there’s another cat print that’s as popular as the leopard – Cheetah. So before we compliment some random girl on her super cute animal print anything, best we review the difference. Simple lang.

It’s all in the spots. Cheetahs have simple black spots, while leopards have a more complex pattern.

Can you spot the difference now?

         

Sharing with you some of my cheetah and leopard hunts:

Clockwise : Cheetah Pendant (CMG), A hamper full of cats (scarves, tops, cardigan),  Bag (CMG),  Top (F21)

F21 Summer Tank Top, Mom’s paper bag from Divi, Cheetah Print Frames

So keep your eyes open for these animal prints para mas masaya ang closet nyo. Believe me, they’re EVERYWHERE.

HAPPY SPOTTING!

Nope. Not being senti here, I’m referring to accessories. Those little cute things that make your outfit complete. Like shoes, they do not discriminate. You can wear them on your most awesome day or your fattest day. I don’t leave the house without them. Makalimutan ko na cellphone ko wag lang burloloy ko. 🙂

Now, here comes the conflict with my earlier statement. As much as I recognize their importance, accessories for me are like flings. They’re fun to be with and will not require you to commit. These babies will make you feel great about yourself but it’s no biggie if you lose them along the way. That’s why I don’t invest so much money on them. My shopping agenda does not always include accessories, it’s a nice to have but not necessarily a must have. It’s like that rack by the supermarket’s checkout counter. You’ve completed your grocery list but you can’t resist picking up those breath mints packed in that cute tin can or that Kitkat with an unusual flavor. You don’t need them but they make you smile so, why not?

My current flings:

stud earrings set of 3 for P75 only!

P100, not bad!

lock and key earrings for a lucky friend P25 lang!

 black “leather”  with gold plate & grey “leather” with gold studs wrist bands  for  P200 ea.

               

knuckle rings less than P200!

 

etc. for Ph100-150.

Find all these by the cashier’s area at SAMPLE ROOM in Robinson’s Galleria.

Let’s hunt.

Treasure huntress is an online documentation of various (very affordable) finds from my past and future shopping adventures. I’m no world traveler/shopper nor a holder of a platinum card. My savings account is pathetic but I believe I have a knack of finding “gems” even from your local palengke.

Come join the hunt.
