Snake Skin Print and a Bit of Edge

Hey guys, so over the past several months I’ve been eyeing some animal print skinny jeans from both Gap and Current/Elliott.  Only I couldn’t justify to myself why I needed to spend well over a $100 bucks for a pair of jeans that are too distinctive to be a staple pair I could get away with wearing a couple times a week.

You see…overall I strongly believe in investing in quality pieces to extend the life of your wardrobe.  But every now again it’s worth checking out more affordable retailers that may be in your neighborhood, like Rainbow or Dr. Jay’s (where I got theses jeans)….to try out some trendy or more disposable items, for less.  That’s why I jumped at the chance to try these snake skin print skinny jeans when I found them the other day (a pair of neon yellow ballet flats in the window originally drew me into the store)….that way if you get something and you don’t like it, it’s not the end of the world. So, while I didn’t wind up getting those flats…I do think these $15 snake skin print skinny jeans are a great alternative to the costly designer animal print ones I passed up 🙂
