Animal Crazy...

Thursday, August 04, 2011

So..these babies are the next Take Ten Challenge..
I dunno where to begin when it comes to these shoes.. I wear a lot of patterns and prints in my clothes so I tend to wear only neutral shoes. As a result I found this challenge hard to style..not only that but they are a bit much for me..pony skin..on trend, animal print..on trend, peep toe..on trend, platform wedge..on trend.. but to have all these styles in one shoe..is..wow..one hell of a shoe!?
Not sure I did them justice..but I tried my best..

  23. they are a little mad, I'm not sure I could wear them they seem quite high too! they do look cute with the simple white dress or just with jeans and a white top. x

  24. Haha, it's kind of funny how none of you liked these shoes. :) I have to admit I seriously dislike any animal print - I haven't written about this before as I know so many bloggers love it and I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings. :D

    Anyway, you did very well toning down the harshness of the shoes, I especially like the setting of the photos. A nice contrast with the city setting the shoes were designed for.

  30. You look great, Vicki (and I just saw your hair from your latest post and it looks phenomenal!) I love how honest we all were about those shoes, and I really love the replacement items I picked up in their stead, ha-ha! :)

  32. You look lovely! You pulled them off so well! x

  33. I think they are the type of shoes that look pretty on your wardrobe but completely impossible to wear! You styled them great though!
