{outfit} The Leopard Jean Diaries

I have a wonderful story for you all today.  It all starts with these amazing Current/Elliott leopard print jeans. [This is going to be a super long post, so feel free to skip down to the photos]
As you all must know by now, I religiously check NET-A-PORTER every Monday, Wednesday & Friday to check the "What's New" items. We also know that I am leopard obsessed.  So one day I was scrolling along, drooling over various designer items, and my eyes grazed over the jeans. I immediately fell in love!! Leopard + maroon is a dream combo for me.   They were promptly added to my wish list and featured in one of my "Current Lusts" posts and finally filed under the "I'll never be able to buy them" section of my brain. Because, really, who can afford to spend $200 on maroon leopard print jeans...I don't even pay that for regular jeans (but I am also cheap)! They may be in the NET-A-PORTER end of season sale, so if you love them keep your eyes peeled if you want them too!
That was all over 6 months ago, but at the beginning of May I got my daily email from Rue La La saying it was their Final Sale: Act 1! I figured I would check it out and not buy anything (like I do with every sale) and everything would be peachy. BUT then I see the name Current/Elliott under the heart stopped and I clicked on it.  And as I was scrolling down the page, there they were: the jeans!!!  For $59.90!!!!  There was only ONE left so I sadly clicked to see what size it was figuring it wouldn't be my size. Amazingly it was my size, so I stopped breathing for a moment and once I regained my composure I quickly checked out hoping I would be fast enough to grab them!
As you can see from the photos below, I was successful! I got my dream jeans for almost 70% off! AND I had $40 in my paypal (which as we all know isn't real money *wink wink*)  so I'm telling myself they were only $20 ;) Have you guys scored anything recently on Rue La La?

I couldn't wait to wear them so I threw them on with my Marc Jacobs tee on Friday to go out to Chili's with my best friends (I am addicted to Chili's chips & salsa...) I also used the awesome clutch that Christine gave me and the other girls at our blogger meetup a week and a half ago.

Tee: Marc by Marc Jacobs (Marshalls) $25, Jeans: Current/Elliott via Rue La La $60,  Heels: Guess (Marhsalls) $40, Watch: Michael Kors, Clutch c/o delachic, Rings: Mom's

  19. Amazing find! I love how you paired the print on print. Especially with the pop of neon on the clutch! Great styling.

  22. how awesome is that leopard print bag? love how the inside is neon yellow! :D

  23. Paypal never feels like real money, but most of the time I actually forget I have money there, which do give me plesent surprises once in a while, like when I suddenly realised I could buy a pair of Vivienne Westwood shoes, my first one's. Grats on your latest find btw, it looks great on you.
