I decided on leopard over snake skin for the first-ever animal print to enter my wardrobe.

The snake skins were lovely, but just felt cold...blooded. Ha! I'm not that advanced yet.

Having a history of being afraid to wear anything bold (patterns, bright colors, etc.), I heard the easiest way to ease into it is with shoes & accessories.

Neeta, Thank You!

Since I'm trying to build my wardrobe in a more classic & "sophisticated-sexy" direction, leopard print pumps seemed like an excellent addition.

These shoes are calf hair. To have a pointed toe, they are surprisingly comfortable. They also have a lightly padded footbed; and I just love the little cone-shaped heel; super "walkable" for me! The fact that they came with extra heel caps (is that what they're called?), was the icing on the cake.

With good care, I think they could last several years.

I usually spray new leather shoes with leather protectant, but I have no idea how to protect & keep calf hair shoes clean.

Any ideas?

Yay for my toe-cleavage!!!

You can pick up a pair...of these shoes, here!

Those are so cute!!! The heel isn't too high, and I love that they give extra heel caps. I have a habit of being hard on the heels of my shoes lol

Yes! I love these! And sorry but I have no idea how to care for calf hair. Maybe deep condition once a week?! LOL
