Splurge vs. Steal


I decided yesterday that I needed a leopard scarf, so I began the hunt. Get it, hunt, because it is leopard. Anyways. Much to my non-surprise, the one I first fell in love with was $555. Unfortunately, the state isn’t paying their employees that well, so I had to keep hunting. What do you think?

Here is the original one I fell in love with

And here are two other, more affordable, options that I found.

Do you have a leopard scarf? If so, where did you find it?

Southward Apparel

A few months ago my freshman roommate asked me to “like” her new clothing line on Facebook. At first, I thought she was crazy… Who starts a business straight out of college. She does. But the more I looked into it, the more genius I thought she was.

Her line is simple, and it makes sense.

LA trends with Texas graphics. Relaxed, edgy and comfortable, but rustic and southern. Perfect for Austin.

I purchased my first Southward Apparel piece this morning, and I cannot wait until it gets to my doorstep!

Outlaw Off the Shoulder + Lone Star Sweater + Stars and Stripes V-neck + Saddle Up V-neck

I was super bummed that the Lone Star Sweater was sold out, but maybe next winter… Which piece is your fav?
