I’m a Snake

Snake Lunar New Year

Happy Chinese New Year!

It’s the year of the Snake.

I was born in the year of the Snake so I am partial to this Lunar New Year.

Live snakes completely and utterly freak me out.

The site of a live one will have me squealing like a toddler and running for the hills.

A Snake in any other form is just fine.

I’ve always loved this photograph.

Reed Krakoff, one of my current fashion loves, hit a home run with this skirt from his 2013 Spring Collection.

It’s been done a million times, but I love a Snake Ring.

I covet this Victorian era beauty.

I’d love to store this ring in this gorgeous snake skin jewelry box.

I am sorry to have missed out on these One King’s Lane  Cobra Candlesticks.

The 1960’s DC Town House interior designer Hillary Thomas created is spectacular.

This room in particular.

The color combo makes me swoon.

I love the framed snake prints and of course, the Cobra Candlesticks!

It’s been a few years back, but this April, 2009 Elle Decor cover has always been a favorite.

The framed snake illustrations have a lot to do with it.

And how could you forget this little fella?

 “The Jungle Book’s”  resident snake,  “Kaa”.

Obsession: Fallon Lion Wrap Bracelet

I’m a Leo.

We Leo’s obviously love lions.

I love what a lion represents and it seemed fitting that one be my company logo.

So when I was peering into the jewelry case at Barney’s and spied the Fallon Lion Wrap bracelet, I couldn’t leave without it.

I love the take on the lion door knocker.

My one of my company colors is orange so had to get that version of the bracelet.

It’s a business expense, right?

And with the $160 price point it didn’t break the bank,

so…..

I had to get the earrings too.
