Leopard Pumps

A. Steal: Nine West $59
B. Splurge: J.Crew $350 
(25% off J.Crew with code OURTREAT until 11/8)

I’ve been wanting a pair of leopard calf or pony hair pumps for years now.  When I finally decided to take the plunge, I was completely torn between splurging on a quality shoe or getting a cheap version.  Animal prints have been on trend for years now.  But is it ultimately still a trend or can it be considered a classic? I went back and forth for awhile before I decided to go with the splurge.  There’s something about the J.Crew version that looks so timeless and elegant and I can see myself treasuring and wearing it for years to come.  Plus the 25% off sale going on sealed the deal for me!


  1. I recently got a pair from Ann Taylor Loft. LOVE them! You will love yours, too!


  2. I agree, the jcrew one has a more classy look to it. I got the Etta one (with rounded toes and stacked heels) a while ago. Haven’t worn it yet but love! lol =)

  3. I could tell right away which one was the steal. The J.Crew version looks way better and I think you made the right choice.
