Late To The Party - une femme d'un certain âge

Late To The Party

It’s official. I’m that obnoxious neighbor who shows up several hours after the party and asks if there’s any cake left.  But I did want to link up to Bella’s Shoe Shine at Citizen Rosebud!

The weather’s warming up and I’ve traded my leopard boots for leopard pumps. These are from Fitzwell and are unbelievably comfortable!

Now….is there any cake left?

    Dear, dear, dear Pseu-pseu: you are right on time! Thank you so much for posting these magnifique leopard pumps (you know I love ’em) and sharing them in my first community event. Thank you- you are a star!

    I showed up late, too, but put in a photo of my London brogans!

    Leopard is eternally fabulous!! I can’t get enough of it in accessories.

    Great shoes with jeans (and everything else!). I’ve been meaning to try Fitzwell, now I am inspired.

    Cute shoes! I’d color the inside of the heel black (shoe dye or just a sharpie works). This will make them even look more fabulous and expensive.
    The toe shape is perfect and if they are comfortable that’s the ticket!

    Warmly, Kathleen

    You wear your leopard shoes with panache. It looks like your feet want to dance!

    And yes, you may have a piece of cake :).

    Fabulous shoes and a heel that does not look scary. Love your happy feet!

    Are those pony/calf hair? Normally I stay well away from inexpensive leopard print (sometimes expensive leopard print looks cheap, but cheap leopard print always does), but those aren’t half bad, especially for the price point. Leave it to you to find an exception to the rule.

    Come to think of it, I don’t think I have any leopard print at all. I’ve got a few other animal print shoes (zebra and pony, both ages old from Guiseppe Zanotti) but leopard always looks…overripe on me. You and so many other women of a certain age wear it so well though. Maybe it’s something I can look forward to aging into. Here’s hoping.

      Hi Rhiannon, thanks and yes they’re some sort of hair. The nice thing about this style is that the leather band on the back of the heel prevents wear from driving. Wish my Cole Haan boots had the same, as the hair’s worn off in spots.

    Late or not they are ‘mazing ‘pards!! Love them…. And what a bonus they are comfortable too – they look fabulous on… x

    I have a “thing” for leopard footwear so I’m glad to see your beautiful pumps! I also have a “thing” for cake so I’m afraid I ate the last of it ;-P

    Ah, the great thing about Bella’s shoe party is — you can’t be late! If you miss one week, it’ll happen again! Shoe party, 24/7!! Drag out the disco ball STAT!

    Love leopard shoes. I’m considering leopard clogs. I’ve got some sassy leopard mules, but cannot walk in them. Strictly for lolling on the couch and eating bon bons.

    And I’m late to comment on how great your leopard pumps look on your feet and on Bella’s Shoe Shine party.

  18. April 14, 2013 / 8:14 pm

    Love your leopard!

    Dear une femme certain, Merci! I have been in search for the ultimate practical heels. 10 weeks post hip replacement and just can’t bare the thought of living in flats for the rest of my femme d’un certain age ;).
