She Said “Utilitarian”

I’m sick of seeing maxi dresses and flip flops. I’m calling for a shoe-tervention.

And, well, utilitarian boots are pretty anti-flip/anti-flop, aren’t they? Especially when they’re dark-gray and black spotted calf hair 5.5-inch boots by Ala├»a. Just some gorgeous pewter hooks and studding with a lace-up front for a few thousand of your dollars.

She Said “Jude”

Another day, another credit deficit. (BUT THESE ARE IN LEOPARD PRINT!)

That’s right, I’m getting animal-print-rageous with Tory Burch‘s new calf hair pumps named “Jude“. Why? The tiny, black suede island platform is adorable. Why again? The gold designer plaque on the heel is one of those rare embellishments that will steal anyone’s attention. Why again again? No more questions.

She Said “You Animal!”

At times, animal print looks like it belongs solely on street corners. So, how do we werk it without ‘working it’?

Via Emilio Pucci, of course. These animal-print suede and calf hair sandals from the designer are the perfect fashion alternative to zebra-printed pleather thigh highs. With black suede and black python-effect panels, these 5 inch heels with stud embellishments help you up your wardrobe’s ante.

She said “Hampton Chic”

It’s time to eat my words. Though the infamy tied to my name is that of a flat shoe-hater, I am truly obsessed with these penny loafers.

The caramel and coffee Brian Atwood animal-print, calf hair beauties are the ultimate in easy, Hampton chic. I can imagine wearing them with a lightweight, chocolate-coloured tank tucked into crisp, cropped white trousers. Seaside Spring/Summer beauty (and at least there is a 0.5-inch heel!).
