Do you know what I like about animal prints? (Well, besides the fact that they go with everything and that I automatically look sophisticated?) I like that every fall they come back in style. As if they ever left us, right? My advice: Buy leopard print, keep forever. Well maybe not forever — I don’t want that coming back on me in 2050 when you are still hanging on to a leopard pencil skirt and quoting me to the fashion police. Buy leopard print, keep for as long as you’d like. There we go; much less pressure on me now.

    Gorgeous! And those heels.. They're so beautiful! I can't believe they're from Payless. I would shop there if it weren't for the fact that all their shoes are really high in the back and hurt my Achilles's heel area. I have really sensitive feet.

    Agreed that animal print is classy…but I've definitely seen plenty of trashy animal print too. I can't put my finger on what makes the difference, but I know it when I see it. This one's classy, so no worries. Also, would we call the top olive green? Or brown? I can't decide.
