Christian Louboutin Fifi Sequined Leopard Pumps, $1495 via ChristianLouboutin.com
As I sit here and type this, I’m wearing a leopard-print house dress. (The perks of working from home, you guys.) I’m sitting a few feet away from a closet that features no fewer than four leopard dresses of different colors, textiles and eras. I have a fifth leopard dress sitting in an online shopping cart as we speak, waiting to be purchased once I get done writing. I’m just a tiny, tiny bit in love with leopard, and I always have been. Which means, naturally, that I adore the Christian Louboutin Fifi Sequined Leopard Pumps.
I think that the success of this design relies largely on the shape of the shoe – it’s simple! The pump is safe and familiar, so the addition of shiny pink and yellow leopard brought to stark relief in sequins isn’t quite so jarring. Putting a crazy texture on a crazy shoe is a good way to get lots of blogs to write about you, but it’s not quite as good of a way to get a bunch of people to buy your shoe. I could see a lot more people buying these and pairing them with a little black dress than you might imagine at first. Buy through ChristianLouboutin.com for $1495.
