Metallics and Animal Prints for the Holidays and Beyond . . . Decorations, Clothes and Jewelry

While this season, my Christmas tree may be turquoise and white, my office, my closet and my jewelry box are getting blinged out big time in metallics and animal prints.

I went a bit nutso at Michaels this season and could not pass up these animal print silk flowers.. . . or these metallic items.My office makeover is not yet complete but it's color scheme is gold, bronze and copper. Here's a sneak peek with 50 cent white vases from The Christmas Tree Shops and a vase from Kohls I picked up years ago.I love Lord & Taylor and I love a good bargain! Check out these jewelry finds.When I saw the following two ornaments at Pier 1, I had to have them. I may just display them all year long.And finally, how about some clothes.

This Calvin Klein top was purchased for less than 8 dollars and it is so sparkly and festive.This Michael Kors top was less than $40 and fits like a glove.And this animal print top was less than $25. Perfect with jeans.
How do you decorate with metallics?

Wow! Everything looks lovely, that second top is so nice! I've just realised, I've never worn animal print or metallics!I've had a few tops with a splash of bling, but not all out blingtastic, maybe I need to shop soon!

I love all your bling. Nothing like a touch of metallic. I'm a passionate knitter and any time I can work with yarn that has some sparkle and bling I'm happiest!

You have such great taste, Carmie! I love all of the blingy jewelry...wonderful prices! The tops are awesome...I just bought an animal print, silky little top and one for my daughter. It's very subtle though. I also bought several tops for the holiday parties with some sparkle! Love it!

Happy Holidays!

Someone did a bit of "retail therapy"! LOL I'm not big fan of leopard print and while I use to wear gold in my younger years, Gold doesn't look to good on me now so I wear silver. But, I do like the vases and the gold, bronze and copper flowers.

I bet you look great in Leopard with your dark hair!

I love your gold and animal prints! I'd love to see how you're using the leopard print flowers, or you in one of your sparkly tops!
