A Very Merry Discount... Leopard Flats

One thing that I love about the holidays is finding a great bargain! I've been eyeballing leopard flats for a while now.  As usual, I can rarely afford my own taste (what's new?) like these Kate Spade drool worthy flats.

The shoe above is the Kate Spade Eryn flat that is currently on sale online for $135.  However, most major department stores still have them priced for over $200.   I'm not one to spend over $100 on flats much less $200!!!  That's why when I spotted this look alike by Adrienne Vittadini at Belk for a 70% off discount... I couldn't resist.  

The detail is a bit different, but all-in-all, in my opinion, this is a very merry discount!
I hope you are all having a Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday season!

Design Crush: BDG Style

One of the greatest joys of blogging is discovering fellow bloggers who are just as much in love with design as I am, if not more (is that possible?).  Most of these design lovers are fortunate enough to have their own design business or are in the process of beginning their journey into the design world.  Ummm, can we say, "Jealous!?!"  In my dreams.... maybe one day that dream will be a reality!  Until then, I would like to share with you one of my newly discovered design crushes, Alison Royer of BDG Style, and check it --- girl will be featured on the Nate Berkus Show this Wednesday!!  Here's a sneak peek that Alison posted on her blog.

I love this design!  Lots of neutrals with the perfect amount of POP!  Don't let anyone tell you to not mix creams and whites!!  And if they argue with you, just show them this picture!  Don't you just love it!?

I discovered Alison's blog while perusing around Pinterest (you know you're obsessed), and this is what I discovered...

All you "seasoned" readers may recall my obsession with orange when I posted my rug dilemma (which is now remedied) a few January's ago.  My apartment is always in a "work-in-progress" stage, so don't judge!  But don't you just love the color combos above!?!  Schumacher Chiang Mai fabric has been HOT for a while now, and if I do say so myself, a bit overkill (Blasphemy!).  We still love it though!  Especially with the mix of patterns that Alison put together!  Please come decorate my apartment!  

Solid orange pillow, check!  Neutral couch, check!  Schumacher Chiang Mai pillows, hello Etsy!

The pair above are available at PillowMood's Esty shop.  Now, I hope that's enough for your design fix. I know I really needed one.  See more here at BDG Style's blog!  Also, be sure to tune into the Nate Berkus Show on Wednesday, December 21st at 3pm PST on NBC to see Alison in action!

Special thanks to Alison at BDG Style for letting me share about her mad design skills!
