If you know this blog, you are aware that I have worn my fair share of animal prints, well anything besides cats, sorry kitty lovers. I have been known to wear leopard over and over again. I even gotten foxy with a graphic sweater. And birds, yep, I think dove patterns are pretty swell. If you consider bees, butterflies and lady bugs part of the animal species, then I am digging that trend lately too.

What I am also a big fan of is promoting, supporting and wearing items from shops that are not only Texas based, but ones trying to get their name out and achieve success in this extremely competitive world we call online shopping. I am a huge cheerleader for independently owned businesses. Maybe it's because Ross and I are one of "them". It's a feel good feeling. It doesn't stop with clothes, we dine at mom and pop restaurants and take our cars to the local mechanic. We strive to support local, independent business owners.

So, when Prim and Peach contacted me about styling a piece from their new online shop, I jumped on it. Again, this sister duo are from Texas, passionate about style and helping us ladies look good on a budget. It's a win-win. They sell pieces that aren't offered on many other boutique sites and all are super affordable. The giraffe dress I am wearing today is less than $30, the quality is impeccable and hemline is just the right length. I wouldn't tell you stories. Did I mention it has giraffes on it? So fun, right?

Today, the sweet ladies behind Prim and Peach have graciously offered you 10% off your purchase when using the code SHANNA at checkout. They have also been kind enough to offer one lady a $40 credit to their shop.

Just one question before I go, are you as wild about animal prints and patterns as I am? If so, what are some of your faves?

Fun print! That blazer fits you perfectly and I love the notched lapel and shorter sleeve length. The paint stroke dress is really pretty!

Susan Jeffries said...

Oh I love that dress Shanna! Super cute! I too am a big supporter of small businesses, as my husband and I are owners as well. We support small businesses and American made products as much as we can. I would get that dress because my daughter would want it too. But the shop is full of cute items life the black sleeveless top with the peter pan collar and the polka dot skirts! Love it! Susan

Karen said...

The Giraffe dress is adorable. I also like the emerald zig zag dress.

Hallie Oceanside said...

I love that dress, the colors are stunning, and of course so are you!

Ashley said...

I have to admit that yes....I am a huge fan of animal prints. This dress is gorgeous and you look gorgeous in it!

FitTravelerAJ said...

How fun are those giraffes?! You rock a good animal print. I think I would pick the black and white chevron top.

I love your dress! If I won, I'd adore the chevron zipper back dress, or the green sleeves dress, or the royal maxi! too many to choose, but so affordable priced!

Stop it with your giraffes and your adorable braided hair. Can I just move in and shop your closet??

katherinecurrent said...

Would it be a total copycat move to say that I would get the giraffe print dress as well? Being a tall girl, I've always had a soft spot for giraffes... Kindred spirits and all. Plus, a pop of pink would do my all black wardrobe some good -- the people on the metro here would faint from color shock!

Rebecca said...

That is so cute! I might have to get that dress. Giraffes are my favorite animals.

SMD @ lifeaccordingtosteph said...

I love that you try to promote small local or TX-based businesses. Awesome!

RebekahRose said...

I adore the print of this dress and paired with that blazer...swooning!

XO,

The giraffe dress is so cute! My son is really into giraffes right now, I think he would love it. I would go with that, or the butterfly dress. I"m a sucker for animals printed on clothes too, I've been wanting a bird dress, but am waiting till I am back to per-pregnant size (if I can do it again) before investing!

Thanks for the support, Shanna! We've loved reading your post and all of the comments. Good luck to everyone who's entered the giveaway!

The Giraffe Dress is sold out (and it looks like our suppliers are also sold out), but we've got some great new patterns on the way (cats! horses! something that could be a dog or a llama!), and posted a sneak peek on Instagram and Facebook. :)
