Leopard Is A Girl's Best Friend

I imagine that when most people think of Marilyn Monroe from the movie Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, an image of her in that bubblegum pink gown and covered in diamonds is what comes to mind.  Strangely, I think of her in another outfit: a stunning navy dress with a leopard stole and muff ... and covered in diamonds.  There is something so striking and luxe about the spotted fir against the dark blue.

A big fashion trend I see this fall is the use of leopard print.  I'm generally a pretty plain and simple girl when it comes to prints and textures, but I can't help it - I'm falling in love with leopard!

Upon perusing fashion magazines and style websites, I've been seeing the likes of Reese Witherspoon and Cameron Diaz sporting some lovely leopard ballet flats.  They look great with jeans and add an instant touch of class to any outfit.

Katherine Heigl

So I bought some.  Now, mine aren't exactly Louboutins or the Tory Burch pair that Katherine Heigl wears, but I think they are just as nice looking and I didn't pay nearly as much.  I got mine at Target for $24.99, they are calf hair and feature a beautiful scalloped detail around the edge.
Ah, aren't they adorable?  They look great with both my trouser style and skinny jeans.

Generally I would say that I am a heels kind of a girl, but these babies make me feel foxy when I wear them.  And they are far more convenient for walking my kids to school in the early morning.
