I’m one of those people who is constantly compiling lists. Lists for groceries, lists of errands to run, lists of things to cull from my wardrobe, lists of things missing from my wardrobe… After much thought, and careful consideration of the contents of my wardrobe, it occurred to me that one of the things that was missing was a pair of leopard print heels. For the most part, I suppose I consider them more of a novelty than anything else, although then I would probably be talking about the greater part of my wardrobe. Admittedly, not my first pair of leopard shoes, but rather my second, or perhaps third, it’s too easy to forget. A few years back I purchased a pair of leopard spot high heel booties, and it didn’t take me long to realise that they were all wrong for me, in essence killing any inclination to own a pair of leopard print shoes, until now.
As with most purchases, my initial thought before I head to the counter, or press “buy now”, is ‘how many different ways can I wear this?’, with my mind set at four as a minimum. Of course my second thought is generally ‘do I own something similar?’, although realistically that rarely seems to factor into the purchasing equation. It didn’t take me long to dream up my first four outfits, combining things like clashing prints, striped top and skirt combos, denim of all colours, and of course a simple black dress.
Do you own a pair of leopard print heels? If so, how do you wear them?
