Wardrobe Wednesday: Leopard!

Now, I'll admit that I may be a little late to the party when it comes to animal prints. Animal print can be a scary thing...its easy to go from classy to tacky.

Lately I've been obsessed with all things leopard- but in small touches. I've been eyeing a grey-scale leopard scarf which I can see pairing with black skinny jeans and a fitted top. And I've been on a search for a beige or pink leopard cardigan. But when I was Christmas shopping in my local Nordstrom, I came across these beauties.

Meet the Tory Burch Sophie Leopard Print Wedge.

I think I literally picked up the shoe and was admiring it like it was the Hope Diamond. You see, I'm a fanatic for a Tory Burch wedge. They have two sizes- the smaller Sally wedge that's 2.5" and the larger Sophie wedge that is 4". I have the 4" wedges in a tan peep-toe and a black patent leather. I can seriously wear them all night and walk 12 blocks in these babies with no issue (aka, I have).

A sales associate came to see if I needed help and I told her no, that I was just admiring. See, I'm a size 5 in Tory shoes and the display size was a 7.5- which in my shopping mind meant that it was the smallest size available. Plus I had already looked on online for this wedge and didn't see it listed below a 6 last month- so I believed that my pint-sized feet were going to have to go without.

BUT, Nordstorm said they didn't always keep the smallest sizes on the floor, because sometimes people with larger feet would try to fit into them and stretch them out. Brilliant idea! 10 minutes later I had my news shoes in a bag and I was on the way out the door. Oh, and the best part? They were on sale for $199...down form $325. Score!
