Leopard, I’m in Love

Today we are talking about leopard.

Let's be real, have you seen the Claire V leopard clutch?  Claire V ClutchI can hear you Oohing and ahhing through the screen!  I know, I have been absolutely in love with it for probably a year now!  I seem to see it on every fashion blogger I follow.  The problem I have with it is the price tag….  $275!  Yikes, I just can not bring myself to lay down the money for it.  $275 for a clutch is just way too steep for my budget.  I am all for spending money for a quality handbag and I'm sure this one is, but being that it is leopard print, I am wary of its longevity in the style world.  Recently, resigned to the fact that the Claire V wasn't happening for me, I went on the hunt for a bargain look-alike.  I am happy to say that one does exist though it is hard to get your hands on!  Apparently others have the same idea on their mind!

I lucked into finding it on an online boutique called, Accessory Lane.  I paid $40 and I couldn't be happier!  It absolutely looks great.  Leopard print, calf hair, and a gold chain (Perfection).

Here is my leopard love.

Can you believe the similarities?!

Ok, so you are getting excited and have the urge to buy one also?  Well, here's the bummer, I just checked and it is now sold out.  I didn't feel right about leaving you hanging, so I started scouring the internet and I found another boutique, Style Girl Boutique, which also sells it, but guess what? Yep. Sold out.  After much research, I found a place where you can preorder it.  The store is called Jess Lea Boutique.  It is now  available for pre-order with shipping on Nov. 9th.  So friends, if you are like me and want to snatch up an awesome clutch, you had better jump on it!  I will make sure to update you if I ever come across it anywhere else on the web!

Phew!  That was like a full time job locating that! 🙂

Now that I have my own, be prepared to see that on me a whole lot this fall and winter.  No joke, you may just get sick of it!
