Hello October! Wow already!?!? I think I say this every month but time sure does fly. But this month is particularly exciting because it means that MY BIRTHDAY is exactly ONE MONTH AWAY!! Oh don’t you worry, I’ve already started my birthday wishlist already! 😉 Speaking of birthdays, yesterday was my sponsor, We Heart Paper’s birthday and today is Much Love, Illy’s birthday… sooo don’t forget to send them some birthday love!!
And next up I just wanted to announce the winner of the scratch and sniff custom dog silhouette giveaway! Random.org picked…
This comment was left by the beautiful blogger Diana from exPress-o! Congrats lady! I will send your email to Mary Lou and she will contact you shortly to get your mailing address. Can’t wait to see your custom print!
And speaking of animals… I’ve done quite a bit of shopping lately and my newest obsession is none other than… LEOPARD PRINT! I just bought my first pair of leopard print flats at Target and I love them, the best part being that you can pretty much wear both black, brown, and brights colors with it. Honestly, I was never a huge fan of it before, guess I was missing out!! Here are some other ways that leopard has inspired me this week:
1 spice up your neck with an ultra fabulous coco leopard necklush
2 be the trendiest lady on the streets with this kate spade leopard print shoulder bag seen on lord and taylor
3 how about a cute little leopard print bow headband from irispancy?
4 this betsey johnson leopard watch seen on fantabulously frugal totally had me with the pink!
5 since you probably use your phone all the time like me, why not make it stylish with this phone case seen on made by girl
6 although i already have flats, i might just need this joan & david chanteur pump from dsw to complete my shoe collection
7 just saw this blumarine spring 2011 dress on the alternative bride, check out her post for much more!
8 decorate your furniture with leopard print handmade snow leopard throw pillows by highstreetmarket
9 and finally score his zara shoulder bag for $79.99, thanks sogni e sorrisi for sharing with us!
Well, that’s all friends! Have a beautiful, wonderful, merry, lovely weather fall October weekend! 🙂
Are you a leopard print lover? Do you own anything leopard print?
I do like leopard print although I wouldn’t wear it as something other than an accessory. I have a PacSun leopard print scarf in white that I love!
I was never much of a fan of leopard prints but I’m becoming rather fond of it lately, I love the stylish iphone case!
Happy Birthday to We Heart Paper and Much Love, Illy! 🙂
I used to think that leopard print was cheesey and tacky, but now I’m a huge fan. I’ve been wanting a pair of leopard print booties (JC has an awesome pair and also Senso), so hopefully I’ll add on to my shoe collection soon. :).. and of course I love sporting the print on my nails.
btw, what’s the different between leopard print and cheetah print. it’s looks like the same thing to me. lol!
xx Love & Aloha
I actually bought a pair of leopard print pumps a few years ago, but I haven’t worn them for awhile! I would wear the leopard print scarf you’ve posted. And what a cute name “neckplush”!
I only have some foulards, but I LOVE that print.
Oh! You and my sister would get along just great! She’s a major zebra print fan though. Haha. Also! I linked you on my blog. Go check it out and play along if you wish. 🙂
I love leopard print! I have 2 pairs of shoes and a cardigan that all get a lot of wear. I agree that it goes with almost anything and it helps tie things together sometimes. I used to have a vintage faux fur coat that I wore out I loved it so much. I may have to keep an eye out for a ‘new’ one that will accommodate my belly! 🙂
absolutely loving this trend!! I need some leopard in my life, probably as a cardigan!!
I bought a pair of leopard print flats from Target a few years back and I wore them out!! I LOVED them!!!
In small increments, I adore leopard!! 🙂
I love all the Fall birthdays!!
Mine is Nov. 5th. 🙂 Yay!!!
Have a beautiful day!!!
I love the leopard! Everything is sooo cute!
I absolutely love leopard print. I have so many things that are leopard print! I didnt even come to this realization til earlier this year. 😛 H&M has some very cute prints! <333
I have a leopard print coat that I love. I also have shoes, a headband, an probably a few other things. …Okay, I really really like leopard print 😉
oh my sooo many sweet options!! i did own some leopard prints – back in jr. high! and have never gotten back into it. i think i might though – but nothing over the top. maybe a skirt or a pair of fun shoes – just a touch of it. it looks really good on some but i dont think on me. i do love these picks though, sandy!
I’m not really an animal print girl — it does quite work with my personality or style — but I love seeing how other people wear or decorate with it. And this collection you put together is wonderful. Hope you have a fantastic weekend, Sandy!
Happy advance birthday! I like leopard prints, but I don’t have enough of them. My husband thinks they’re tacky!! I think there is definitely a way to wear them tastefully 🙂
I’m actually excited for October: my birthday, Halloween, many, many concerts!! It’s my favorite time of year 🙂 BTW – I think I spotted your sis-in-law on the show (was that her in red??) ! I was so excited, even though I don’t know personally 🙂
i usually not a fan of leopard print but that little zara bag is really cute!! have a wonderful weekend sandy!!
I own a top… and it’s black and white. it’s not always something I run to at the stores, but I don’t hate it!
have a great weekend!
I just bought a T Bags leopard top from shopbop yesterday! Can’t wait to rock it!
I’ve never really been brave enough to rock the leopard print, but I think leopard flats might be the way to go! I never would have thought of that, but I think I could handle a little leopard shoe action.
Have a wonderful weekend!!
Congrats Diana! She always leaves the sweetest comments! And love the list. Looking at my wardrobe I definitely need that purse.
OMG…I am over the moon right now….YAY!!!!
Thank you…did I really ?
I kept my fingers so crossed for this one…hahah:)
I am so happy!
Kisses,sweetie and have a sunny weekend:)
Dearest sandy, time does fly by so fast! How exciting to know that your bday is just a mth away…yipee. Oh these leopard prints are gorggeous…my mama-in-law really adore leopard prints…something for me look around for her xmas present. Have a lovely merry happy weekend and love to you!

Love leopard print…I have a bathing suit in it for when I’m feelin’ wild!
happy october!! all that leopard def adds spice to anyone’s wardrobe. love it.
thank you for featuring Necklush on Sandyalamode! we love the selection! have a great weekend- T&S
I used to hate leopard print, but it has grown on me. As long as it’s done in a classy way it looks really nice. Yor collection of it, is really nice.
What lovely finds…you always find the best things! I’m afraid to say that I don’t own anything leopard…I’m pretty simple when it comes to style. I love your new blog design! It’s so very beautiful!
hmmm i’ve never been much of an animal print girl…but all of this stuff is CUTE! just not necessarily made for this granola colorado girl 😉
love leopard! i just had my leopard louboutin mary jane flat’s resoled for the 4th time. not sure they will make it much longer, but i love them- and don’t think i want to chunk out the change to buy a new pair!! 🙂
oooo you DID say you were lusting after leopard print flats in my last entry–i didn’t realize there were tons of other things too, hehe! my favorites are that headband (of course!) and the zara shoulder bag. i wish there was a zara store closer to me! ;]
I’m not a huge leopard print fan but I do like the sound of your flats. I guess I don’t mind it in small bursts like a pair of flats or a scarf.
I don’t actually own anything though.
I love that bag so much and I’m all about the leopard right now. Thanks for the mention!
Yes, loving all the wonderfully sassy leopard!
i saw that exact pair at dsw the other day and almost bought it, but decided i should be saving money for atlanta this past weekend instead 🙂
Hum, this is tricky for me… Leopard, zebra, tiger or other jungle animal prints always worry me, I think it can be risky and not easy to wear it right. BUT your finds could really change my mind! Specially the accessories and the details in leopard look so cool! 🙂
