Welcome to the Jungle Print: Heavenly Treasures

JUNGLE PRINT DRESS - Heavenly Treasures
GLADIATOR WEDGES - Dolce Vita for Target
CANARY PURSE - Thrifted (Thanks, Mom!)
BELT - Loehmanns (Borrowed from Mom)
BRACELETS - Heavenly Treasures (Borrowed from Mom)


I have a new obsession.  Okay, let's be honest, I have a lot of obsessions: stripes, wedges, florals, dresses, cardigans...I could go on and on.  But at this moment, I'm loving jungle prints...whether they're leopard, tribal, or straight up jungle.  This is straight up jungle.  And I'm so very thankful to Heavenly Treasures for giving me a place to buy this original dress from young designers in Thailand.

I think my hubby, Camouflage, would really appreciate this dress because, well, it's camouflage, at least in this jungle-like background in Fair Isle's back yard.  I tried to give you a few fierce poses to go with the theme, but the hammock wasn't cooperating, and instead collapsed.  The only thing fierce was the look on Pigtails' face when I fell. 

What I love about Heavenly Treasures is it's an organization dedicated to helping people in developing countries become self-sufficient through their handicrafts.  They assist them in building micro-enterprises and give them access to markets.  And 100% of your purchases (yes, all of it!) is reinvested into the livelihood projects.  So check them out and better yet, buy something totally unique and beautiful! 

I have a gift.  It's spending money (sorry, Camo).  And Heavenly Treasures allows me to use my gift.  Because nothing feels better than "saving the world" through shopping!

Great dress and I love the yellow accents. It's always nice to know that your gift of shopping can be used to help someone else :)

I like your dress, the color has a tribal vibe. Love how you wore the accessories as they nicely complemented your dress. Your shoes look so good. XX

Love this dress, especially with the pop of yellow. I tried those shoes on at Target, but they squeaked when I walked - they don't do that for you?

Absolutely wonderful! A perfect match!

That dress is gorgeous! Heavenly Treasures sounds a lot like Ten Thousand Villages, which has a similar cause and is a free trade organization. It's one of my go-to stops for unique gifts, that's for sure :)

Okay, that dress is just adorable!! I absolutely LOVE your yellow nails and purse -- it just gives the whole outfit a bit of WOW! And the silver jewelry and belt too. Your Mom must have some great fashion sense too :)

As soon as I read the title of this post, I totally had that song going through my head.
"Welcome to the jungle ...."
I work out to it all the time, so that's probably why it's at the forefront of my mind.
I swear that I have a personal soundtrack that travels through my brain constantly.
Maybe that's why I recorded my sixth music video this afternoon? (P.S. I will post it on my blog sometime this week so you can mock the crap out of me and my lameness. I have no shame anymore.)
