snakeskin is stealing the show

If I had to choose one animal print, I would say leopard rules the fashion world. But, I don’t think snakeskin gets enough credit.

After digging through the archives I realized two things:

1.) I wear a whole heck of a lot of leopard print – specifically the Banana Republic clutch I bought 3 years ago that is ALWAYS on the blog (see above)

2.) I have a nice little starter collection of snakeskin print shoes

 

Now, as I mentioned before, not all leopard print is created equal – and this rule 150% applies to snakeskin as well. For this print I would recommend sticking to accessories; think shoes, clutches, purses and phone cases.

Here are a few ways I’ve showcased (faux) snakeskin on the blog:

snakeskin-giginy-clutch

hands down, one of the best purchases ever. Great size, great color, and they have some pretty good end of season sales!

snakeskin-blue-lace-up-sandals

I don’t think we even need to mention again how in LOVE I am with these sandals

snakeskin-kate-spade-1

this Kate Spade bag is one of those impulse surprise sale buys that you thank yourself for snagging

snakeskin-lace-up-flats

These flats were a steal from ASOS and I received compliments all the time

this phone case is from the same brand as my FAVORITE magenta clutch – Gigi New York

these are from H&M years ago & are starting to look a bit rough…but they’re so comfy!

If you’re looking to add a little sass to your life, I would turn to snakeskin. There are shoes & bags for everyone’s budget in this pattern. If you’re a huge fan and looking for genuine snakeskin purses, I recently discovered a brand local to California-  Farbod Barsum. They have a full line of exotic prints, but they are expensive!

If you’re looking to add a little fun on a budget – feel free to check out the products I linked below!

 Have a great day!

    I never gave much credit to snakeskin but you’ve sold me on it’s potential! I absolutely love that magenta clutch and the Kate Spade snake accents!
