Leopard Fur + Kendra Scott Giveaway

Maybe the weather in Texas isn't quite ready for fur layers just yet, but I couldn't help to immediately put on this thrifted vest. I mean, it's not only fur, but leopard fur. Double win if you ask me. I took a few things to sell Plato's Closet last week. As I was waiting, I browsed their racks. This vest was hanging gloriously in the jacket section. I have no idea why it hadn't already been snatched up. I suppose it was waiting patiently for me. 

I typically get major anxiety when walking into any store that refers to the word thrift. It's just too overwhelming for me. I never know where to begin and I honestly don't have the mental focus. When I do pop into a resale store, I tend to look for bold pieces and items that stand out, hence the leopard fur vest. With the pieces I sold, I took this little friend home for free.

Top: Lauren Conrad for Kohl's (similar here and here) // Vest: Thrifted (similar here and here) // Leggings: Target // Boots: Wallis c/o // Necklace: Town and Reese c/o Jeweler's Wife // Ring: Kendra Scott c/o Jeweler's Wife // Clutch: Lookbook Store c/o

I knew I wanted to style the vest with a few accessories that added a pop of color. Emerald green was my ticket. This necklace from Jeweler's Wife and clutch from Lookbook Store were the perfect combo. May I add that I have been wearing this Kendra Scott ring on repeat? I don't think I have taken it off since it arrived in the mail. You've probably noticed it already in a previous posts.

If you haven't visited Jeweler's Wife, today is your lucky day. It's a fairly new website and sister company to Reed's Jewelry. With 20 years experience in the jewelry industry, they bring to the table some of the most sought after designers like Kendra Scott, Micheal Kors, Dogeared, Loren Hope and  many more. By updating their styles daily and offering helpful styling tips, this is one jewelry site you will want to frequent. To add to the sweetness, receive $10 off your first $30 purchase and shipping is always FREE!

I have been excited about this post for weeks. Not only because I truly love this new online retailer, their offerings and styles, but also because one lucky reader is going to get to take home a pair of these Kendra Scott earrings. If you want my honest opinion, I think every woman in America should own a pair. I have been a Kendra Scott fan for a few years now, own several of her pieces and love nothing more than to support women entrepreneurs. I hope you ladies are as pumped as I am.

Enter with the Rafflecopter below. Contest open to U.S. residents only. Good luck!

Your necklace is stunning! Is it agate?
I'll take you thrifting. I bet Texas has some kick ass thrifting and I really want some vintage levis and vintage cowboy boots. Let's go!
You are stunning, as per usually.

I think I must live in the wrong area of Texas because all my thrift stores are just full of pee smells and old framed space shuttle posters. Blah.

That vest is so awesome and just made for you!

Rachel said...

I'm all about faux fur, but I don't own any yet!

Kayla Peveler said...

It's BEAUTIFUL! Just like you!

Setarra said...

I'm a huge thrift shopper and love that you found your faux fur vest while thrifting! It is a bit overwhelming so I always give myself at least two hours to rummage through the aisles so I don't feel rushed as I'm searching for good finds. Those pops of emerald in your accessories really bring this whole outfit together :)

Amanda Joy said...
