John and I are completely addicted to watching American Pickers. I’m definitely no history buff, but after watching a marathon the other day I realized that picking and collecting antiques and my love for shopping may not be all that different after all. Frank, one of the show’s main stars, seems to have an affinity for oil cans. In a recent episode, Frank was attempting to purchase a new oil can from a seller (who stated that it wasn’t for sale) which provided the perfect opportunity for Mike, the show’s other main star, to poke fun at him. He said something along the lines of, “Frank just keeps buying oil cans, lines them all up and stares at them. I’ll tell him ‘don’t buy that, you already have that one,’ and he’ll say, ‘but I don’t have it in green.'” It was in this moment that I truly identified with the show and turned to John stating, “see? It’s like my love for leopard print.”
In my opinion, a girl can never have too much leopard print. Sure, I may have a pair of leopard heels but that doesn’t mean I shouldn’t buy leopard flats, and leopard loafers. And while I have this leopard print necktie blouse, I’m going to need a long sleeve leopard blouse for fall and winter, am I right? The way I see it, when you find a trend you love, there’s no reason not to invest in it. No matter the trend you choose, you can never have “too much” of something that makes you both look and feel great.
