Morning Line: January 22

Jan 22, 2016

Being back in an office again is a strange feeling.  Dressing up each day is made a little easier by having a versatile shoe wardrobe.  They bring a bit of punch to otherwise staid separates.

I get a lot of wear, and a lot of compliments, on my leopard pumps.  Years ago, my Mother tried to convinced me that leopard was a good idea.  I wasn’t having it.  God, it hurts when she’s right.

    Technically, the top and bottom shoes are cheetah print; the middle shoe is leopard. 😉

    But they’re all lovely and, I agree, can definitely add the perfect kick to an outfit. I’m so sad to need to soon retire my leopard print Steve Madden pointed-toe skimmers — the were *perfect* (purrfect?).

  2. Valerie says:

    Funny that you mention your mother, because mine bought me a pair of leopard-print flats a while ago (“to spruce up your work clothes”). I didn’t think they were my style and avoided wearing them for a while. Then one day in a morning clothing rut, I put them on and was convinced.

    I think the key is to pair them with neutral, solid colors; that way it looks edgy rather than “inspired by the Real Housewives of Las Vegas.”

    • Not technically your mother says:

      +1 I also think this crazysexycool pattern in flats is a lot different – more corporate more professional – than in a great-looking pump.

  3. Jenn S. says:

    I just can’t make myself love them for me. I’ve seen them pulled off and look so damn chic, but I can’t bring myself to do it. Amusingly enough, I have a MUCH younger sister who wants All Leopard Everything.
    And I do mean *everything*.

    Tortoise, on the other hand, I definitely dig. I think you style it similarly.

When I was in my 20s, I bought every trendy nail polish, eye color, and lip gloss.  Sure, I could only wear them on the weekends, but why not wear emerald green liner?  In my 30s, I became enamored with skincare and took every “must-have” product for a spin.  But in my 40s, my skin […]
