I love animal print but it just doesn't sit too well on me. I have a pair of leopard print ballet pumps which I love but they are falling to bits, and I'd also LOVE a pair of animal print heals but I just can't seem to find a "classy" pair (If such a thing exists). Or maybe I could accessorize with a bag instead?

Has anyone seen such lovely things on their shooping adventures?

Have a squint at dune. They also have some other ones around at the moment that are pointy.

or kurt geiger - cant see any at the moment - but they might be there??

I did check kurt geiger the other day but wasn't keen on the 1 pair they had. I'm not keen on pointy - would prefer a sort of platform court really.

I would try office maybe?

How about these? ??

sweetheart Mon 08-Aug-11 16:13:59

hmmmm, nope sorry not the perfect ones. Not sure about the print, prefer it smaller. Not sure about flat wedges either.

I have the perfect ones in my head I just need to find them!

Or there's always these. I hope suspect they're not quite what you're after though.

Clarks have some lovely leopard print platform courts but they have gone into the sale so might be hard to find.

I lust after this leopard clutch on a regular basis, less is more and I think I would wear this with jeans and a black blazer to the pub...

I have leopard heels too - I'd never wear them together, but the heels again are fab with jeans...oh I also have animal ballet pumps....blush

I rather like these. They have a few other sorts as well.

azazello Mon 08-Aug-11 20:12:17

Bollocks. these

those are goooorgeous azazello but quite £££

Miss P - close but no cigar! The first link are too loo and the 2nd - well not really classy are they grin

azazello they are the closest so far to what I have in my mind - the print is a bit large but they are still lovely - not sure I want to spend that much though, I can understand the expense of duo boots as I have fat calves and need them made to measure but shoes I can pick up anywhere. They are lovely though!

Madam, I totally agree that less is more with animal print. I wear my leopard print ballet pumps with jeans and other plain things. I do have a thin leopard print belt too but again - should only be worn with a plain dress.

In Italy, I saw a woman with leopard print pumps and a leopard print top. She then pulled out of her handbag a packet of cigarettes - in a leopard print case. I kid thee not. A case, designed to cover a packet of fags, in animal print.
That, my dears, is class!
When done well, (and carefully) animal print can look fabulous. Good luck with your search.

I love leopard print!

Have had my eye on these for a while:

Animal print-aholic here too. Agree the golden rule is one item at a time. I have 6 pairs of animal print shoes and find they really add a bit of lift to a plainish outfit.

Ive just bought these for a wedding, definitely the most blingy pair I own but its a plain dress so think it will be ok. Also tried on these the other day and for day wear I think they would be excellent. Another casual pair I have my eye on are these On the bag side I am hoping to indulge in this for the festive season

I'm loving the leopard print fag packet cover - it's enough to make me want to smoke!

Dnt know ur budget ans shoe size
Have a look at these

sweetheart Tue 09-Aug-11 12:58:26

thank you so much for the suggestions but nope - none of them are the ones I have in my head - sigh! I want some basic court shoes - possibly platform, with a smaller leopard print than seems to be fasiohonable right now.

Franup Tue 09-Aug-11 13:05:22

These from office

onelily Tue 09-Aug-11 13:09:22

i like Franup's suggestion. bt feel are too expensive. any suggestions of something more economical?

sweetheart Tue 09-Aug-11 14:43:43

sad nope not perfect - close though! I still think the print is too large and I'd prefer a higher heal. Although not skyscraper high!
