I have wanted a snake print dress ever since I saw Salma Hayek wearing that Alexander McQueen dress on the cover of Lucky magazine June 2010.  Although, I did think McQueen's version had a questionable placement of print right over her lower midsection.  Ahem.  Happily my dress is quite flattering.  See, good things do come to those who wait. :o)

I have had the snake print tights for a long time.  When I first bought them, I wondered just how often I'd wear them.  The answer?  All.the.time. :o)

  2. I love when I buy things I don't think I'll wear a lot and then get a ton of use out of them - its the best!

    1. Oh yes, but it's the worst when I buy something thinking I'll wear it to death then it just fails. There's a certain pair of pants waiting to be dyed in hopes that I can get more wear out of them in a different color.
