The Elephant in the Room

Last year, I proclaimed my love for all things elephant.  Today, I am back with some brand new pieces that make my heart go pitter-patter.  I am really crushing on the earrings (but not so much the price).  Also, can we please discuss that Marc Jacobs clutch?  I am not going to say,"I die," here (although I kind of do).  

What are your favorite pieces?  Are you a fan of elephants?  Are you drawn to decorate with or wear any particular animal?

Adore the cushion Erin. You should go on safari to Tsavo East, we saw so many elephants there, it was like seeing cows in a field there were that many xoxo

i am an elephant fan. i got dumbo in stuffed animal form and i've never looked back. also, when i got older i learned more about them and they are the coolest animals. love all your picks but that clutch really is something else.

I actually really like pigs. I live in an apartment filled with piggy banks and fancy lenox pig figurines.

I really do like the African motif these elephants bring. Love the elephant bangle. Super cute!

Before reading this, I wouldn't have thought of elephants as something I would decorate with. But seeing all these adorable little items makes me totally love them! Those bookends are by far my fave.

Carly said...

I am crushing on that elephant charm bracelet..I would rock that ALL the time this Spring.
Thanks for sharing your elephant obsession.

I grew up with an Asian mommmy, so we love elephants with their trunks up. They are good luck.

I like bees like you like elephants. I would love a bee ring.
I don't have any bees in my collection just the photos I've taken of them.

Very cute!! I don't have a thing for animals but for certain colours. Right now it's various shades of blue.

I dont collect anything special - well i use to but it was stuff related to the Panama Canal.
MY MIL use to collect elephants, she had jewlery, shelves and tables full of all type of elephantic knick knacks. It got to a point that everyonealways got her an elephant something for birthdays, Christmas and any other celebration and even though she no longer wanted them they just kept coming...
I like the book ends and find elephants beautiful creatures :)

Grace said...

"I proclaimed my love for all things elephant" haha first of all that made me laugh. Me a fan of elephants? Actually no. But to see all these elephant-esque shots make me want to reconsider...too cute!
