I love animal print shoes: a little too much, possibly, if the three pairs of them currently sitting on my shoe shelves are anything to go by. Because of my great love of the print (Which extends only to footwear, I should add. I don’t own ANY animal print clothes, and don’t have plans to acquire any, but shoes are another matter altogether.), I always seem to be on the lookout for more. Well, you never know when those existing pairs will wear out, and it would be a tragedy to end up with NO animal print shoes, wouldn’t it? I think so.
That’s why these Philip Armstrong shoes are so appealing to me. Originally £40, they’ve now been reduced to £25 on the Matalan website (The clothing section of which is also worth a look right now: they have some really great summer stuff coming up!), and in addition to the animal print upper, they also have a nice gold heel, which works perfectly with the print. As for the shape, meanwhile: well, it doesn’t get much better than a low-vamped, pointed stiletto, as far as I’m concerned, so that gets the thumbs-up from me too.
What to wear with animal print shoes?
Although this print goes really well with most jewel tones (as well as with black and tan, both of which are present in the print itself), my favourite colour to wear with animal print shoes is red. My favourite colour to wear with red, meanwhile, is camel (I wrote about this combination over on The Fashion Police recently), so this was an easy outfit to put together:

Unfortunately for me, the red dress would clash with my hair too much for me to wear it, so I’d probably switch it out for a skirt or pair of trousers in the same colour. In fact, I think I might just go and put that outfit together right now…
