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