Finally, how amazing would the Jeffrey Campbell PIXIE look in cheetah fur?

Jeffrey Campbell PIXIE-Solestruck

Well, start saving your $, because Solestruck will have them in about a month.  IMHO, far superior to the sold-out Jeffrey Campbell 99 Fur in Cheetah, these are going on my lust list.

Personally, leopard/cheetah/animal (excluding zebra — I don’t do black & white vertical stripes) print will always be a staple in my closet.  I could walk out the door wearing any of the above shoes with a plain Hanes t-shirt and skinny jeans and still feel put together.  Hail to the power of shoes.

Are you over leopard print or still on the bandwagon like me?

Which shoe above is your fav?

    I am the TOTAL opposite of you: no leopard print for me (or minimal at best) and loads of zebra/stripes! At least you know we won’t be fighting over the last anything ;)
    That said, the Wangs are obvs my faves. I picture a statuesque blonde model traipsing down the runway in them (ahem, that’s what I hope to feel like if/when I wear them).

    The Alexander Wangs are my favorite. I spotted them right away on a woman waiting in line in the bathroom at the LA Fashion Weekend finale show. They are simply stellar. Leopard print needs to be done a certain way- if done wrong, the print looks fake and cheesy. xo, Mel

    The first wedges and the wedge in pic #4 (as you can see, I’m a wedge supporter :) . I love the look of leopard shoe, even if it’s done with a contrasting print up top (depending on how it looks of course). Can’t wait to see what you have in store for us ;)

    Still very much so entrenched on that bandwagon!

    And thank you for sharing the Maurie & Eve ones, I die!

    I hopped on to mycatwalk (such an addiction for me!) but they’re sold out. Bummer. Will try my luck at an actual store tomorrow.

    p.s. how can you not love animal print? How????? And wearing two different types of animal print, doing it right? That’s perfection.

    p.p.s. Adore your blog!!! Adding you to my link list!

    I LOVE Leopard print! I have shoes and an adorable pencil skirt. I like it in moderation, so shoes are perfect…. and belts too…

    So great to have you back Becs! Hope you had fun on your business trip!

    The more craze shoes a girl has the cooler the girl, right? They’re totally directly proportional. I say any of these shoes, an ocbd, and raw denim equals boy kryptonite forever.

    It’s so funny how many people I’ve heard talk about how animal print is tacky and horrible, but every time I wear leopard print or zebra print, I always get compliments?! I think if an outfit is well balanced (like the print is only in the shoes) then it can look really awesome.
