I somehow always manage to forget that Accessorize do shoes. I’ve no idea WHY I keep on forgetting this: I love Accessorize, and have done for many years now, but although they really come into their own in summer, with an awesome selection of flip-flops and sandals, I STILL manage to forget about them… normally until the next time I walk past their store at the airport, and find myself wanting to spend all of my holiday money in it. Every time that happens, I promise myself that, when I come home, I’m going to do my best to remember to check out the website on a semi-regular basis, and every single time, I forget. I hang my head in shame.
Anyway, this morning I remembered that Accessorize sell shoes, and it was pretty good timing, too, because this morning I ALSO remembered that I don’t currently own any leopard print flats – and that I really, really need to rectify that situation.
Now, I LOVE leopard print shoes. I know they can be one of those “love ’em or hate ’em” items (In fact, just yesterday I was browsing Pinterest, as you do, and I noticed that someone had pinned a photo of a woman wearing leopard print shoes, to which the pinner had added a comment saying something like, “I love this outfit, but OBVIOUSLY not with the animal print shoes, because animal print is SO cheap and tacky looking!” Seriously, why do people write things like that on Pinterest? Do they not realise that the person in the photo might see their comment, or do they just not care? Anyway, back on topic: I thought the comment was a little harsh, but I know it’s a school of thought a lot of people subscribe to.), but I’m firmly in the “love it” camp, and I particularly love it with blue jeans – or maybe red trousers.
Lately I’ve been in the market for a pair of leopard print flats: I was actually thinking of ballet flats, but now that I’ve seen these pointed loafers, I think I’ve changed my mind, because these would look fabulous with the aforementioned blue jeans, and I bet they’re pretty comfortable, too – not bad for £29!
