She Said “Darcy”

Animal print has always been a delicate subject, for me. While most prints channel ‘Real Housewives’-level desperation, animal print works beautifully on the right shoe.

Take, for example, the Darcy heels from Nicholas. Done simply in black and white leopard print, these chunky 4.5-inch cow skin heels look as sleek as animal print possibly could.

She Said “Snakeskin Colourblock”

Be the beholder of every eye in these B Brian Atwood snakeskin colourblock pumps. Immaculate shades of fuchsia, teal and red come together in perfect unison to create one beautiful pump.

The fuchsia snakeskin upper is amazingly cohesive with the rest of the leopard print shoe. A 5.5-inch heel is covered in teal leopard print, while the red leopard print snakeskin island platform gives another 1-inch boost. To tie the look together the pump is trimmed out in natural leopard print which also includes a leopard print sole. If you are looking for a fabulous transition-into-fall piece, look no further than this colourblock masterpiece.

She Said “Rosie”

It may not be ‘Rosie the Riveter’, but there is a certain vintage sophistication about these ‘Rosie’ sandals.

Loeffler Randall had a glamorous feel in mind for these leopard-print haircalf beauties, as you can see. Bright red suede highlights a small platform and 4-inch tapered heel.

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 “Whitney”

I am such a glutton for Betsey Johnson. The woman is knocking on wrinkles’ door while doing catwalk cartwheels and trotting around in tutus.

On top of that, Betsey Johnson’s “Whitney” pumps have to be some of my favourite shoes in months. The shoe is so streamlined and sexy with the open side that it could work for almost any occasion. The crazy is kept on the lining - leopard-print insoles, anyone?

(The fuschia-tinted purple makes me want to stomp it out at Disneylandor whatever equivalent I would be able to find in Bangkok.)
