Leopard Print

Tuesday Shoesday: Spotted Again

Enzo Angiolini Sovann Leopard Sneaker

I posted about leopard print sneakers last year, but I ended up selling those when I did a closet clean out. Apparently I wasn’t quite ready to let go, because as soon as I came across these at Saks off Fifth, I knew I had to have them.¬† You might recognize the style as a Jimmy Choo double-take from this post. And as much as I love the version in black glitter, I couldn’t resist the leopard. I definitely prefer the Sovann style over the Heydi sneakers I used to have because I love the contrasting black trim. They’re also super comfortable, and have become my go-to pair of sneakers for this fall!

 

Tuesday Shoesday: Fun Flats

H-2526M-Studded-Leopard-Flats_small

I’m currently (albeit a bit slowly) working on building a diverse and fun collection of flats. I judge all shoes based on comfort before I purchase them, but flats have to be extra comfortable. So it always takes me a while to find ones that are both fashionable and comfortable to my taste levels. I spotted these on a friend at work and thought they were absolutely fabulous. Leopard print and sparkling studs, could it get any better? This particular pair is from H&M (similar here), so I stopped in one evening to check out their selection. They aren’t ridiculously overpriced (an average of $25 for flats) but for the amount of wear I’d give them, they didn’t seem like they would hold up. So I passed on this pair, but I have my eye on a different pair by Vince Camuto that I spotted at Nordstrom Rack…just waiting for the price to go down.

Shoe of the Day: Wild Thing

MICHAEL-Michael-Kors-Glam-Leopard-Hi-Top-Sneakers-with-Studs

I know I already have leopard hi-top sneakers, but these by Michael Kors are seriously calling my name. There’s a whole “cool sneakers” thing going on lately, and I’ve seen so many great styles. Modern sneakers with different materials and details are a great way to stay fashionable and comfortable, something the fashion world is realizing. Not all women want to wear heels, and it’s great that a huge variety of awesome sneakers has hit the market. I blame sneaker wedges for starting the trend, but I’m not upset about it because I’m guilty of owning a pair. They’re definitely the most comfortable heeled shoes that I own. I’ve already got my eye on another pair of wedge sneakers, but we’ll see if I get them…I’d rather save and splurge the black version of these.

Tuesday Shoesday: Spotted

PLV-Heydi-Leopard-Sneaker_s

I’ve always loved leopard print; when I was 11, I asked my mom to make me a leopard skirt, top, and dress. I still have the skirt actually! It fits, but it’s much shorter on me now. Anyway, my infatuation with spots has carried through into my current wardrobe, albeit in a more refined way than when I was younger. The first leopard shoes in my shoe collection came in the form of pumps, and now I’ve added these sneakers. It took me quite some time to find the perfect pair of flat leopard high-tops, considering the trend lately has been wedge sneakers, but good things come to those who wait! I finally snagged this pair of Pour La Victoire sneakers (85% off!) on MyHabit during one of their sales. I didn’t even think twice about pressing the checkout button!
