Seeing Spots | Leopard + Denim

It’s no secret that I love leopard in just about any way, shape, form, or fashion.  Shoes, scarves, a clutch, blouse, and THIS SKIRT! This skirt was a random gem I found in TJMaxx and wearing it put me in high-waisted-ruched-midi-pencil skirt heaven! I knew immediately that I wanted to add a little edge so I naturally gravitated towards black.   Black leather bootie, check!  Black sweater, check!  And here comes the closet MVP denim jacket down the lane for a sweet slam dunk to finish!

According To Q, there’s nothing like a little leopard and a little edge paired together.  Leopard is a closet MVP and a great neutral.  You can’t go wrong with adding some black leather and gold accents for a glam, sassy, and fun outfit that sure to have everyone seeing spots!!

Oh, and you can even add a pair of black chucks to the mix for a cool, casual vibe.  IG caption: I can’t go from peep-toe booties to chucks in 2.5 secs.  Snaps.According To Q - Seeing Spots 12

The Look for Less Shoe Game of the Week | Manolo Blahnik ‘Tayler’ vs. Sam Edelman ‘Delilah’

I’ve always said that a girl can never have too many black shoes, white tops, or black dresses.  We have too many occasions that require a number of different black footwear options.  Casual may call for black flats.  A GNO absolutely requires a jazzy black stunner with sky high heel.  The office and church are the perfect places for a classic black pump.  The basic black pump is definitely a closet MVP, but if you’re in the market to step up from the basic with a little d’orsay goodness, check these out: Manolo Blahnik ‘Tayler’ vs. Sam Edelman ‘Delilah’.  Both are suede, polished, and have a 4-inch heel.  Sure, Tayler doesn’t have an Italian made leather sole, however, she’s a great stand-in that is just as chic.

The Look for Less


In this battle of high vs. low, would you splurge with Tayler or save with Delilah?
