Keri kindred spirit !

I remember when I first heard Keri Hilson on a track with Timbaland titled "The Way You Are". I loved it and I loved the video ! I just liked her style. So you can imagine I was pretty excited when she released her own singles. I couldn't wait to buy her first cd after hearing "Turnin' Me On". I was totally sold when I saw the cover of the cd and Keri was wearing leopard print leggings. Now with her most recent cd, she has done it again, rocking leopard print nails ! This is the reason I still purchase cds ! I love the album covers and artwork. So I started off with the idea to just post her two album covers. I've already done a post showing her video for "Breaking Point" in which she was also rocking leopard print so there is no need for that. However, I did an image search on Yahoo ! and saw that Keri rocks leopard print A LOT ! Yay ! I love her even more! She is truly my kindred spirit ! Keri, I love you .....and I'm also from the "A" ...not that you will ever read this ! lol

Nicki Minaj in Leopard Print !

Ok honestly, I was not a fan of Nicki Minaj for a long time. least not openly. LOL. Secretly, I liked her audacity and boldness, her willingness to be different, her animation, her antics, and her crazy style. However, I thought she was incredibly shallow. But then I bought her cd, and there are many different styles on it and shows other sides of her. So now, I'm ok with saying I am a Nicki fan. Not just because of her music but because she represents originality and being yourself. Mainly, I think that she is smart, maybe not booksmart (although she could be) but I mean she is smart because she knows how to market herself. So...say what you want about her but she is killing it right now. She probably has just as much haters as she does fans but hey, she keeps controversy going so as long as people are talking, she is making money. Anyhoo, I did a post on Nicki because she did something I just cannot hate on....she rocked a leopard print catsuit at a Christmas concert in NYC. Check out the pics below. They were found on Tell me what you think but I don't really care....I'm luvin it !

Pump it Up!

Pumps will forever be with us! Aren't you glad about that? They will never go out of style, will always be fashionable, and will always be a trend. I wonder where that name came from..."pumps". need to wonder when I can just look it up. Here goes...

Okay. This is what had to say about the what defines a pump and where the name came from.

What are Pumps?

Pumps, in their most classic form, are lightweight, strapless shoes with closed backs. Generally speaking, pumps have a seamless front upper that is cut closer to the toes than the top of the foot. They need no fastening or lacing, as the foot can be slipped into them easily, although some styles have buckles or laces as a design feature, rather than a necessity. Pumps can have any heels of any height.

History of Pumps

Though the pump has been a staple in women's shoes for centuries, it was originally worn (without a heel) by men and servants in the 1500s - then they were called a "pompes." 

Eventually, bows and other embellishments, as well as heels were added to pumps, making them more feminine than the flat, plain shoes from which they originated.

Now that we are clear on this, let's get on with it ! It appears that women took what belonged to men and made it theirs ! So what else is new ? We have been doing this for years and we are still doing it ! We are women, hear us roar ! We stole their "pompes" and made them "pumps", making them feminine and embellishing them with our own thing ! How nice ! So, this should make us feel very powerful when we stomp around in our pumps ! I'm really feeling this power.....let's pump it up ladies ! The only way to improve pumps are covering them guessed it, LEOPARD PRINT ! Check out my favs !

A Glove Story

I'm a sucker for gloves, specifically colored leather or suede gloves. There is something so classy about a nice pair of gloves. They are one of the main reasons why I'm in love with winter. Of course, their is only one more thing I love more than gloves, and if you know me well, you know that that one thing is .......LEOPARD PRINT GLOVES. Read my glove story....well just look at the pics rather.

Let go of my COATTAIL.....

I've decided that it was time to complete another post on leopard print coats. The first was named "Ready for Winter". Check it out if you haven't because I still love those also. I have seen a lot of comments on twitter and being that the cold weather has come upon us, it's only fitting that I post again. I myself have decided that I am missing a a leopard print coat in my closet. I can't seem to pick the one I want to rock! Is it bad to get three of them? I'm sure it's a bit ridiculous but hey...I'm obsessed. I believe that a leopard print coat is a bold statement. You are telling the world to look at you and while they are looking, you are telling them that you could care less what they think ! You are glamarous and you know it ! This is not for the faint at heart. Be ready to grab all sorts of attention. Face the a leopard print coat. And when the men pounce and follow you like a lost puppy, tell them to LET GO OF YOUR COATTAIL ! Here are a few more found. Tell me what you think.

WEDGE my foot up your....

Hey ! I know the title of this post is crazy but it was the only way I could put wedge into a blog post ! I’m serious. I think it’s clever. I am doing this post because I am not rich. No seriously, this is the real reason. The problem is, I’ve fallen in love with a very expensive pair of leopard print wedge boots. Until I meet a rich husband, I have to come up with alternatives. I’m sure you guys understand and may feel the same. The first picture I will post will be of the leopard print shoes I WISH I could have. The pictures that follow are more affordable alternatives. I’d very much like to know what you think. Give your opinion on the best leopard print wedges. They don’t have to be the one most similar to the one I love, but they have to be FIERCE !

Here they are ! The Giuseppe Zanotti Sculpted Wedge Bootie. No words needed. Just oohs and aahs will suffice.

Here are some leopard print wedges I have found that could possibly take my mind off of these.
