Splurge vs Save: Leopard print shoes

leopard print shoes
I know, I know, they are at the line between classy and tacky, but in the end it’s a matter of taste. There was  a time, not long ago, that I hated leopard print, I mean really hate it and that’s because ( I said it before) I associated it with a certain type of people. A lot have changed though, now I like leopard print and I’m gonna get a pair of shoes,  I’m just waiting for spring.
In my opinion leopard print shoes, or print shoes in general, look better with a minimalist/simple look.
Do you like leopard print shoes? Save or splurge?

    Obisnuiam sa urasc si eu leopard print si multe alte lucruri in trecut. Acum, mi-am schimbat complet preferintele in materie de moda.
    So I say, SAVE.

    I used to hate animal print too but know I am in love with this pattern! I love the topshop shoes! They look amazing.

    I never used to like leopoard print either, but I think little pops of it are really affective, I'm slowly converting! These shoes are beautiful

    Leopard print is fab, but of course you must do it tastefully!!!! I'm in the process of creating a "splurge vs. save" post. I keep seeing designer inspired things everything!

    I really think that animal prints need to be an item you splurge on. Many cheaper options look tacky. This is definitely a splurge for me.
