Leopard Print - What Should I Choose?

I need a leopard print pump or bootie (closed toe is the key here) for fall. Perhaps "need" is a strong word. Nope. I just decided. Need is definitely not too strong of a word. I heart leopard print. It's pretty much a classic. Take it from me folks, leopard print will never be out of style. Which is why a cool pump (or bootie) has made it to the top of my "next shoe purchase" list. I will feature two of my top choices today and two more tomorrow. I thought perhaps you might want to help me choose and it the midst of all these choices you might just find a pair you want too!



Tory Burch - Camille

With the exception of the pump vs. bootie shape these are pretty equal in regards to cost and material. I must mention that I am somewhat apprehensive when it comes to a pony or calf hair upper. You see I had a pair of Nine West leopard print peep toe pumps and the hair rubbed off. I'm not sure how and I'm not sure why but it was as if with the turn in the weather the pony/calf shed its coat. Has this ever happened to anyone else? Or am I alone here? Either way I'm not sure I could go wrong with either of these. What say you, dear readers? Which would you choose? Tory or R&R?

BTW why is it ONLY Thursday????

They are both nice, but I prefer the Tory Burch. I like that platform, it keeps the rest of the shoe (the leopard print) away from the ground so it doesn't get scuffed!

I have a pair of Chinese Laundry pony hair shoes (zebra print) and I've had them for like 4 years now. Still going strong! And I wear them a lot. So maybe it was just a bad pair or a fluke. I love the TBs the best!!!

I very much prefer the Rock & Republic booties. The black collar and the skinny, glossy heel really makes the shoe that much more special.

I would go with the Tory Burch if you are going to spend that kind of money. I am sure that you can find a cheaper version of the Rock and Republic by a different brand. The Tory is classic and the R&R is kind of Trendy. Hope this helps.

I'd go with the Tory Burch. They're so hot, plus I think that shape is a little more versatile and timeless than a bootie.

I'd go with the Tony Burch too. They definitely seem like they would fit your shoe sensibilities more.

I love Booties but I prefer the Tory Burch.

Fendi? Oh wait, that wasn't one of the options. (I certainly can't afford them! *Sad*) I love the Rock & Republic booties. They're sexy. The Tory Burch ones are too yellow for my taste.

Id have to go with the tory burch, like everyone else. The pumps are more of a classic.

I'm jumping on the bandwagon. They are both cute, but I think the Tory Burch would be more comfortable because of the platform and you'd probably be able to retap them less.

I like the shape of the Tory Burch shoes better, but I like the pattern of the booties. :)

Booties! The silhouette is slightly more interesting than the pumps but still classic. They'll be perfect for fall and winter.
