It’s been a while since I’ve done an outfit post so here you go!  This is actually a sneak peak at what I wore on our Christmas cards this year.  Jim and I have always wanted to do a photo card wearing ugly Christmas sweaters and this year we made it happen.  I love this horrendously ugly Christmas sweater so much I’m actually wearing the exact same thing to our office Christmas party today.

Stay tuned tomorrow for the outtakes from our photo shoot, which was our 5th date of Christmas.

Last week was one of those weeks were I was seeing red my entire time in the office.   Actually, this week has been pretty much the same.  The day I had worn this ironically was the worst day. I’ve been working through major payment issues with one of my vendors that affects all my customers, and it’s been ridiculously stressful trying to get it all sorted out.  That plus having an employee quit along with about 2-3 staff members on vacation next week, and my stress level is near through the roof.

This week, especially today I’m dealing much better with the stress.  Tonight I have “sweaty beers” with my gym girl friends after spin class (where immediately following class we hit up the local bar), which I’m looking forward to and it’s getting me through the day.  I’m also making it a point to hit up the gym, do some yoga and meditate daily to get rid of some of my nervous energy so I can at least sleep soundly.  We’ll see how it goes the rest of this week, it can’t get much worse.

Vegan Versions / Louboutin Leopard Booties

15 Jun

I love me some leopard.  Actually, make that any animal print.  Leopard however holds a special place in my heart.  It’s a great, neutral pattern that you can’t really go wrong with.

Apparently I’m not the the only one. I spotted this image on the interwebz a whiles back of Kim Kardashian‘s Louboutin Leopard booties and wanted them instantly.


They’re tres expensive though and made out of pony skin (yuck!).  I knew I had to find a vegan version somewhere.

The Alloy ones are cruelty free, and not to mention only $40! I got my pair not too long ago, so keep an eye out for their debut as part of my 30 for 30 soon.
